How to Avoid an Itchy Scalp

How to Avoid an Itchy Scalp
I hope you've had a good start to the week! Today we bring you tips of how to avoid an itchy scalp if you wear protective hairstyles with synthetic hair.
Marley Twists

Marley twists is a hairstyle that gives a great naturlista vibe. However, unfortunately, the material of the twists can feel itchy against the scalp. Especially when they’re freshly applied. 

But, don’t worry. We have you covered! Here are some tips to help a prevent dry, flaky scalp.

Apple Cider Vinegar
1. Apple Cider Vinegar - Before installing synthetic hair to your hair, you can soak the extensions in apple cider vinegar. This can help to remove the protective sprays pre-applied to give the hair extensions a sheen. This spray can sometimes irritate sensitive scalps which can cause itchiness.  

2. Natural oil- Applying our natural grow-it-long scalp serum to your scalp helps to nourish your scalp when in protective styles. It helps prevent dandruff. The nozzle is an easy guide for you to apply it in between braids.
3. Wash Your Scalp – Whether your hair is in a protective hairstyle or out of it, you must make sure to wash it regularly. I am constantly surprised at how many ladies think protective hairstyles are a no-go for washing. When in a protective hairstyle, you should not wash your hair any later than 6 weeks.  This helps keep your scalp fresh and able to breathe with limited product-build up. If you didn’t wash your face for more than 6 weeks, can you imagine the build-up of grime or bacteria settling on your skin? It’s unthinkable! So, you should apply this same practicality to washing your scalp. After all, it is an extension of your face. This will eliminate an itchy scalp and help aid with hair growth. Also, washing your protective hairstyle can be a gentle process with you simply massaging shampoo in-between braids. It doesn’t have to be as harsh as you may imagine.
I hope these tips help you avoid a dry scalp.

Definitely repurchasing!

Extremely good product, moisturises very well and isn't dry the next day like some products. Also a little goes a very long way and so it is fairly priced. I can see and feel it working with my natural hair texture, cleared out over 20 products and replaced with this one. It has good hold so is good for styling aswell

Amazing!!

I am so impressed with this product it doesn't leave behind any build up of product residue in my child's hair like other products. It de-tangles very well, has a non toxic non overpowering scent and I love the fact that it's natural. I've ordered two bottles so far and disposed of the other products I was using. After educating myself about edc's in black hair products switching ti this this was a no brainer and I can actually visually see that the product works along with my child's hair which is lighter and not so greasy. The product was shipped so quickly after ordering and the customer service has been outstanding. Thank you so much for all your hard work producing this product that has been designed with black hair health in mind. I've been recommending this product to my friends

Best detangler I have found

Such an effective detangler that brings my daughters girls back to life. Lightweight and not sticky like other products I have tried

Amazing keeps my hair so hydrated and curls in place

This is the best spray leave in I've ever used. Sal kindly gifted me one to try and I've bought 2 more since. Even my sister bought one. It really works well in our hair. I have long tailbone length thick 4a 3c hair and this light weight product is amazing. Along with the quench cream. Perfect formula. I'd love to one day see Root2tip on the store shelves!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.
