scalp build up

Hey guys hope you all are enjoying your week. Through out the winter season we tend to pay closer attention to our scalp. I know I do I make sure I add some sort of moisture to may hair such as coconut oil or Shea butter. Moisturizing your scalp is a must the air is much harsher but with all of the oils being added we have to be mindful of product build up.

I know for myself I shared with you all that I suffer from dry scalp it’s definitely a pain. It’s like wild-fire if you scratch just a little you end up scratching all over your scalp. With that being said there is nothing wrong with trying to combat dry scalp. However, because you are compensating for the change in weather with more oils to your scalp you have to also deal with the additional build up.

In the winter you may think that you would wash your hair less, because you are sweating less but no you would be wrong. When your scalp is itching uncontrollably in the winter you may have just settled for the explanation of dry scalp, but in fact it maybe a mixture of dry scalp and scalp build up. When this happens wash, condition, and start over. It is important to keep your hands out of your hair. Do what it takes to keep your scalp clean and moisturized. Remember, be happy, be curly, be you, and you will never fail.

  1. Really helpful to one white Brit ‘oldster’ female who is PLAGUED by what seems/feels like sand. And yes, cannot resist scratching it (out?) all-over and think I have – as you imply – made it much worse. I have long non-gray hair and am beginning to look witchy as don’t dare go to the hairdresser. If you have any tips on tea-tree all etc. would be really grateful as have had it for a year and tried everything in the book. Very best and hope your lovely hair stays long!

  2. Hi, thank you for your comment. I’m glad that the Information was helpful for you. I totally understand the feeling of an itchy scalp. I use essential oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and almond oil along with Shea butter. I have also done apple cider rinses which help to regulate the ph level of your scalp and have been beneficial for me. I know that some swear by tea tree oil and that using a few drops on the regular really helps combat the dry scalp scalp issue here is one of the links I found http://www.okaypurenaturals.com/okay-tea-tree-oil-for-hair-scalp-skin-2oz-59ml/. I’m sure there are many more websites that discuss tea tree oil but I hope this is a good place for you to start. It also talks about some of the other benefits of tea tree oil. Good luck and keep me posted I would love to hear more about your journey to a happy scalp.
