Natural Hair Care Dread Journey: Dreads, Locs & Dandruff Oh My!

Hello there my lovely readers



For those of you have been following and keeping up with me since the blog started my hair has been a couple of ways. After I did box braids nearly 3-4 years ago I made the decision before getting them to put in to finally go natural. At the time I had not had the "creamy crack" {relaxer} in a few months anyway and it was getting time to make a decision to go get something done or not.

I decided to go with the yarn braids which my sister always put in for me and I wore those for a year and a half i think. I finally did the big chop after transitioning  for nearly a year. I finally made the decision to get Locs after being on the fence for a while.



I took the plunge its now been a year and 6 months with my locs. I have had a couple of issues but its been great so far and my growth after finding a good regiment for moisturizing and cleaning has been exponential.

There has been an ongoing issue of DANDRUFF yes, the flakes...yes the white little and big flakes. I have always had to deal with dandruff but it got better once I went natural and frequently washed my hair and etc.

With the dreadlocks journey my washing was more limited in the beginning and a problem that seemed under control grew a bit beyond my control and here I was back at square one again.

This is how my hair used to flake up....yuck yuck


My locs were in bad shape last September after neglecting them for the summer leading up to my sons birth. I was too tired and too dang hot to get them done. I finally found an amazing loctitian here in Nashville that got these babies in shape and trained to lay down right and I knew then I needed to get serious about taking better care of my locs.  I especially needed to stop scratching my scalp to hard and to frequently. My loctitian would have to try and get the flakes out of my locks and its just so much more work. Dreads are not easier to take care of believe me.

the flakes would get everywhere and this occurs mainly at the crown and front of my head




I did all my research and decided to really find out what dandruff is, I was always told it was due to dry scalp and etc,things that made no sense once I would moisturize my scalp it would be back white the next morning.

After some heavy research I found out that dandruff  also know medically as Seborrheic dermatitis, is nearly like a yeast infection of the scalp (fungus called malassezia), its fungus.... a fungal overgrowth on the scalp, it also can be an inflammatory response related to psoriasis. It is not caused by dry scalp as your hair stylist will tell you and the symptoms inflammation {check}, redness {check}, and flakes {triple check} is what I have suffered with for years.


I'll Share with you what I have started using that is showing some promise with my locs and natural hair dandruff problem. I will later also be showing you my shampoo regiment,hopefully with video.


Dandruff Scalp Scrub

2 parts Raw Sugar or Brown Sugar
1 Part Coconut Oil
1 table spoon of fresh Ginger
A couple drops of Lemon Essential Oil
A couple  Drops of Peppermint Oil

Mix together 
Rub on to scalp and areas affected and let sit min 15 mins
Thoroughly Rinse out mixture
Dry hair with 100% cotton tee


Tips

I moisturize my locs and scalp daily with a mixture spray of essential oils and water
I have only used this mixture a few times but I can see the results of the dandruff not showing back up on my scalp for 3 or more weeks, instead of nearly days after shampooing.

Things are much better with the flaking and severe itching.
