Whenever I drink Coconut water I get this bad itchy scalp. Does anyone know or experienced this similar reaction to coconut water?

Yes! Since the start of my illness I've had an itchy scalp verging on Psoriasis. Most vegetable fibres tend to flare it up for me and interestingly I've noticed coconut in all forms does as well. I believe it to be to do with the lauric acid/monolaurate but I'm not sure.

Thanks. I think like you said High fibre high acid, anything that induces bowel movement flares up my itchy scalp.
