SO. Theres these mosquito's here about the size of small house flies, and they literally come in swarms. The blackflies are the size of mosquito's, and the horseflies are the size of wasps.(must be something in the water?)
ANYWAYS. Because of this, I have been loading up on OFF bug repellent, which is not very good for you and loaded with deet, etc, but I tried just tea tree oil and citronella and every other herb mixture I found on the internetz but all it did was make the damned bugs mad and bite me more, therefore I had to suck it up and use the chemical spray.
This includes spraying my hair with it, because blackflies burrow into your hair so that they can bite your scalp because they're big jerks.
So I have been washing my hair alot. Not with soap, but vigorous rinsing, out of sheer necessity . AND MAN is my head dry. and itchy. And bug spray really makes dreads feel yicky.Luckily baking soda rinses take everything out, THANK JEEBUS. But I continue to itch. And slightly flake, a little.
Tea tree oil+witch hazel only goes so far.
No questions, just wanted to bitch.
