WHY IS MY SCALP ITCHY????

 

Throughout this past 3 weeks, I have noticed that my scalp has become increasingly itchy, like its embarrassing when you are out and you can get your fingers out of your hair because of that one itchy spot. So I took to google, and looked up causes of itchy scalp. Then I looked for causes of itchy scalp specifically for natural hair women because I know we use more products and do more things to maintain our hair, therefore we could possibly have more causes of itchy scalp.

Few Updates: RESULTS of Protective hairstyle Challenge & London Natural Hair Week 2015

Hey lovlies, I haven’t posted in a minute, I am literally in my final 2 weeks of my undergraduate degree and deadlines are piling up. God will see me through however.

First and foremost, I haven’t said anything about how my 9 week protective box braids challenge went. My hair grew, but at its usual pace, nothing significant. I grew approximately an inch all around. The biggest advantage for me is that I have no access to my hair and my ends, and so my “hand in hair” problem has not been a problem. My ends are nice and protected. However, the most annoying part for me during this challenge is the dryness my hair suffers. In braids, my hair feels dry very quickly! During the first few week, I was consistent in making sure that my hair was always moisturized (spray bottle and oil). However, as the weeks passed, my lazy side began to take over and really… I couldn’t be asked because my hair was always dry. I ended up moisturizing my hair once every 3-4 days. As a result of my laziness, my hair lacked moisture when my braids were taken out and I had a lot of shedding. In other words, my hair grew an inch, but I lost strands of hair!
