Another fricken dandruff thread
Dreads Hair and Scalp Health
Hey all. I've trawled these forums and found the same responses over and over again,
baking soda (about 1/4 cup to 1/2 gallon of water)
rosemary oil (10-15 drops) tea tree oil (5 drops)peppermint oil (2-3 drops)
acv rinse (same oils)
cold cold water
My dreads just turned a year old.I have had pretty bad dandruff for MOST of this time
I've tried so so so many different combinations of the above:
differnt amount of the oils,
different amounts of b/s
different amounts of acv...
all to no avail. Sometimes i'll get lucky and for a week it'll be fine, so i'll be sure to do it exactly the same the following week to just be caked in it.
NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK!!!
i just don't know what to do.. i've accepted the idea that packaged anti-dandruff shampoos will be detrimental to dreading, and also leave nasty residues in my dreads so paranoid of doing that, but this simply cannot continue so what the hell are my options?
i have a lot of patience, but this is just not a sustainable situation. it gets ultra itchy and flaky.i want to prove to the world dreads are acceptable but it's hard when you're frikin snowing on everyone. oh damn that sounds nasty.
