Chlorine is REALLY REALLY REALLY bad for your hair. I only swim in lakes and the ocean. Baking soda doesn't leave a residue so it isn't that. I think that maybe your scalp is just dry. You might want to hold off on the washing and see if it gets better.

Some people get itchy when they start dreading. They also get more dandruff and stuff. For some reason I had the opposite reaction. I was less dandruffy and only rarely do I get really itchy.

If you use the Baking Soda alone and don't rinse well enough, you could have some residual baking soda left and because it is a salt it would dry out your scalp and make it itchy. So when you use it make sure to rinse really well, do the acv rinse(even a weak one is good), then rinse well again. The acv neutralizes any left over baking soda and restores the proper pH balance of your scalp(I think :P)Or it could also be that your scalp is just getting used to the new routine. I used to wash my hair every single day and now I can barely make it ever other day, I still need to get my scalp to adjust...it doesn't help that I've had an itchy head for as long as I can remember :)

Peppermint oil is tha bommb! Keeps dandruff and itchies away. Just ad it to your baking soda wash.
