I’ve always had scalp problems. When my hair was relaxed, most of my issues were from washing my hair with shampoos with coconut-based ingredients. I no longer use commercial shampoos, so I’ve alleviated that problem.
Unfortunately, this week, my scalp is acting like a fool.
Granted, I normally wash it twice a week, but as the weather gets colder I’m so not interested in that. If I can wash once a week, I will be happier. Who likes washing their hair in -15 degree weather. Really?
It’s been six days since I’ve washed my hair and my scalp is dry, itchy and flaking in some spots. I’m wondering if it’s the weather. I used to oil my scalp regularly with castor oil and olive oil, but I’ve fallen off. Tonight I’m washing my hair and I’m going to oil my scalp — hopefully that will help.
Lovely readers, do you have any suggestions about what I can do to stop the dryness, itchiness and the dreaded flakiness? All suggestions are welcomed!
