    Default itch itch itch...don't treat me like this!!

    OKay..So I know that there are many threads on what to do when locs are dry but I would like to fresh ideas instead of going allll the way back to search the threads lol.

    I recently washed my hair and retwisted last weekend...I stick to the same routine but all week my scalp has been itching me ridiculously. I brought the Jamaican castor oil with cococut oil to see if it works which i am hoping it does. Other than that I just mist my locs throughout the day. But GEEEESH the itch is ridiculous

    How do many combat this issue. What are some oils that can be used just in case the coconut oil does not work?

    There are no fresh ideas.

    -ACV rinses
    -Add tea tree oil to your scalp products
    -Wash with a medicated shampoo like Nizoral
    -Scalp massage

    If you use a gentle shampoo, it might be time to dust off a bottle of clarifying shampoo to get your hair and scalp squeaky clean.

    Stop putting oil on your scalp if you are doing so. And do the other stuff ChaCha said.

    Thanks guys. The shampoo I have been using is the Dr. Bronners shampoo in my hair. The next wash I will do the acv rinse with some good massaging.

    You can find flaxseed meal and oils at most retail establishments now.
    Hope this helps.
