How to get rid of 'the itchies' when you have dreadlocks

dreadlocks - The Itchies

Everyone's had itchy scalp or dandruff at some time or another. It's normal. Anything from switching shampoos to swimming in a chlorinated pool can do it to you. No biggie, except it can be very uncomfy and especially hard to deal with when you have dreads.

The first thing to determine is whether it's just dandruff due to oily build up, dry scalp... or bugs. Like I said before, use your common sense about cleanliness - don't do dirty stuff like tree-planting, dirt-biking or smell-related work without a hat on, DON'T sleep next to someone if you suspect they might have lice or some other funky thing going on in their own hair, and DON'T let animals sleep next to your head ever. If something weird has crawled into your dreads, laid eggs and is having a party in there - please, don't go into denial because you're afraid you might have to chop your dreads off... DEAL WITH IT IMMEDIATELY.

Now, if it's definitely not bugs and is just dry scalp or dandruff (itchy, flaky, white, irritated, you know it...) and it's driving you crazy, you need to get your grubby little hands on some Knotty Boy Dreadlock Shampoo! These shampoos kick arse for getting rid of the dandruff, flakies and killing the itch that seems to be something that many people with dreads just live with and accept. Chock full of tea tree, rosemary and peppermint oils, they also have no conditioners and are truly, completely natural, which makes them very acceptable for dreadlock use.

You don't have to have a dirty, itchy scalp just because you have dreads! It's GOOD to wash your dreads, not only to keep them clean but it helps get them tighter and stronger, too. These shampoos do nothing but make your dreaded scalp tingly and healthy - no more itchies - and, baby, it be the sweetest, mintiest stuff you ever done smelled...! Mmm!

One other thing made JUST FOR HOT, ITCHY SCALPS is the ridiculously popular all-natural Knotty Boy Peppermint Cooling Moisture Spray, another pep-o-minty treat for unhappy scalps and dreads that need a boost in the fragrance department (yeah, you KNOW what I'm talkin' 'bout). Since this bottle of love was launched, the feedback has literally poured in from dreadheads in every corner of the earth fairly exploding with happiness over the scalp relief they're experienced since using this powerful spritz.
