lol This is funny cuz just about my 2 month mark I was complaining of the same thing. I thought it smelled bad but my husband and kids said it just smells like me... haha I was like "ewe so I stink" I think it's our scalp adjusting after years of using chemicals. I just increased my washing to every 2-3 days and I have itchy scalp anyway so I scrub my scalp with my fingertips.. Now that I have dreads I look forward to wash day I haven't changed anything else and the smell isn't noticeable to me anymore. I haven't tried any dreadsoap except a tiny bit of bronners occasionally in my BS. But usually I only do BS mix with 3 drops tea tree (I hate the smell of that but it's good for the scalp ) and then I rinse with the ACV mix and currently put 3 drops peppermint EO and and 3 drops grapefruit EO I havn't got rosemary yet but I hear it's great for scalp issues too.
