First I just want to say I LOVE THIS SITE! Every time I have a question about something I just look and usually someone has already asked it - and so many kind people with great suggestions! Thank you!!! I was interested in this discussion because I have a problem with dandruff too - I don't have my dreads yet, but I'm getting ready! lol!
But one thing I was wondering, and it seemed to be touched on in this forum, is the measurements for the individual ingredients for the shampoo. I am thinking that the amounts that SE quoted in his post about taking care of dreads might be too much for me - so what do you think for brand new short baby dreads as far as amounts of the different ingredients?

Another awesome ratio which I use is 1 tablespoon of baking soda per cup of water. The same goes for the apple cider vinegar (if you need more conditioning, then double the ratio for the acv 2:1 insteat of 1:1). I'm currently not using any oils, and while I still get some itchies from time to time, it's no where near as bad as it used to be. Andelynn said:
