There are many things that can cause itchy scalp. Hair chemicals is one of them. Perming your hair and dying it takes out essentials oils from your hair that is very important when it comes to having healthy hair and scalp. Relaxing your hair can cause dry scalp, split ends and hair breakage if not properly cared for.
Coloring your hair will also cause damage to it, try using hair color that does not have harsh chemicals. Choose hair dye products like Dark & Lovely. I have been using this color product since I was allowed to color my hair. My mom and I are the only two in the family who uses it and I have never had anything bad to say about it.
Blow drying your hair will make it dry and brittle. When washing your hair, if you have time let it air dry. Gently squeeze the water out of your hair, rubbing it roughly will add more frizz. Itchy scalp means that your head is not in its best shape. There are a few methods that I use to get rid of my itchy head and I have not itched since, except when it was time for a wash.
Follow these hair care tips to get rid of itchy scalp and to get your hair more healthier than ever!
Use a deep conditioning shampoo that will soften and strengthen your hair without over drying it. Wash hair at least once a week.
After shampooing use a deep conditioner or hot oil treatment. If you prefer use both, leave the regular conditioner in for a few minutes and rinse. Then apply hot oil treatment and leave on for at least a half an hour with a plastic cap on and rinse completely out. You can use the hot oil treatment every week and then once every two weeks once your hair is back healthy again. Giving your hair this treatment will keep it strong and healthy.
After conditioning your hair and once it is dry, before you begin to style it take time to lightly grease your scalp before applying heat to it. Massage your scalp with grease or Luster’s pink oil lotion. This will nourish and stimulate the scalp, which will open up the hair follicles and let them breath and allow your hair to sprout out more new growth.
Later in the week if you feel your hair is dry, gently grease and massage it again making sure it gets the oils all the way through and comb. A good hair and scalp conditioner to use for your head when moisturizing it is Softee African Shea Butter. It is a exceptional hair care product without the big price. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to get the best results. You can find this product at your local Family Dollar or Dollar General store for only $2.
And furthermore wear a satin cap to bed every night. A satin cap not only holds your hairstyle it also aids in locking in the essentials oils from your hair. It will maintain your hair nutrients, prevent breakage and keep it healthy looking. I say this because lying on the pillow causes friction towards the hair which will dry it out and set off breakage and split ends.
Healthy hair frames the face elegantly and compliments your image.
One more tip: If you want to try a medicated hair grease, try Sulfur8 it is a great product with natural and medicated ingredients that will soothe the scalp and provide itch relief.
