Dreadlocks are popular, beautiful and can be really versatile. But like any other hairstyle it can give you little problems now and then; dandruff.

1. Wash your locks It is challenging to dry them, but you should wash them at least once every week. Salt and dirt irritate the scalp, so in ase you are an active person, salt from sweating can encourage dandruff. 2. Rinse Use water or a vinegar solution, between washes. Mix 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar or white vinegar into 3 cups distilled water. Use half of the solution and save the rest for the next day. 3. Shampooing The usage of medicated shampoo is probably the best. Using this shampoo may mean that your locks wont lock easy, but they will eventually and you will have a healthy scalp. 4. Dreadlocks products Use products designed specifically for dreaded hair, because they are residue free. 5. Use tea tree and rosemary oil. Tea tree and rosemary oil are both good for dandruff. Create your own anti-dandruff spray by mixing 20 drops of tea tree essential oil and 20 drops of rosemary essential oil with half a cup of distilled water. Store the mixture in a spray bottle and spray it on your scalp whenever dandruff flares.

6. Maintain your roots

Dandruff can get worse as your roots grow. Twist as often as possible, but make sure the twists are not too tight, as this will irritate your scalp.
