I finally got my scalp calmed down by using tea tree oil (just apply a little to my fingertips and work into scalp.

Then I ran into the problem that although my hair looked pretty good 3rd and 4th day with no wash it would feel gunky (too producty). I then started adding about 1 T of ACV to my spray bottle, lightly misting it on, and it's eliminating that yucky feeling and adding some nice shine to my hair. The smell goes away very quickly.

I'm sure there are others who do this but since it's hard for us newbies to go through all of the posts I thought it might be nice to mention this quick fix again!
