So I have had my dreads for a little over two years now and recently, within the past few months, I have been having issues with my scalp. At times it gets really red and irritated and I have been noticing a lot of dandruff. This is a new problem, I have never had this issue before. I have been using the dread bar soap from the dreadlocksshampoo site. I was using the patchouli bar when I first noticed this becomming an issue, so I swithced to the tea tree and there has been no improvement. Prior to me switching to using the dread shampoo bars I had always used the dread shampoo from dreadheadhq.com and I never had any issues. I am wondering if it's possible that I might be allergic to the oils or some ingredient in these dread shampoo bars? I just washed my hair two nights ago and it almost looks like I have a rash behind my ears... Any ideas or suggestions? Should I just switch back to the shampoo I used to use before I had this problem? Not sure what else would cause this... Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
