My hair is fine, but very thick and very very straight. The lengths are dry and dull and my scalp is becoming increasingly greasy and itchy.
I can wash it in them morning and by the evening it feels, well, dirty again. It NEVER used to do this. I could go for a whole week without washing it and it would still look clean.
I am thinking that clarifying, extra washing, are making things worse.
Clearly the increasingly greasy scalp is trying to tell me something.
In April I started a thread on my successes in facial care. My greasy but dry face is no longer greasy or dry, or spotty. Now I need to do something about my bloody hair. I am thinking that completely cutting out normal shampoos might be the only way to go. I have tried oiling/deep conditioning, scalp massages etc etc, nothing works. Within a day my scalp is like an oilslick and really itchy. Has anyone done this? Would you mind sharing your journey/results? I don't mean the 'no poo' school, but using say shampoo bars from lush or the ones you see on eBay. I understand the transitioning period may be pants, but tbh, my hair is pants all the time anyway
gobbler -love the name! I have just read 'wheat belly' and I have really really cut down on my wheat consumption, intact my grain consumption. I know sugar is an issue. Obviously there is inflammation going on. I will check out the cynthia stout, thanks .
Mine clears by using coconut oil with a few drops of tea tree added. You need to put it on and leave it for a few hours or ideally overnight. When you wash, add shampoo to the dry hair and then condition. First day may be a it greasy but bear with it - the condition improves greatly. I try to use shampoos wth organic/ natural ingredients. My DS scalp and eczema cleared dramatically by cutting out dairy, cutting back on wheat and sugar as well as the above.
