Dealing with frizzy and itching scalp

xAnitaxAnita Posts: 24Registered Users
Hello curlies!! Been natural for a year or so now.. However lately i am suffering with some bad either dry scalp or dandruff which is sticked to the scalp and hard to remove. At the moment i use KCKT+KCCC, their shampoo sometimes.. and the Spiritz. My hair used to adore it when i first used it with an ACV rinse.. I had gorgeous curls!! Now my hair gets dull, frizz a lot on the back and front of my hair. Which means i would end up washing my hair every other day :( Especially around the time when my period is due it seems to refuse to sit well, tangles and frizz easily!

I would either flip my hair upside down apply KCKT, rinse.. add a little as leave in. Scrunch some water out with an old t shirt and apply the custard in parts, i always let my hair air dry.

When i would be have a semi good hair day for a change after washing it almost everyday.. 2nd hair day.. frizz on top and especially back, water adding doesn't help.. neither add a little styling custard or spritz spray.

The longer i wait with washing my hair (can't get away with washing twice in a week) my hair gets more dull and dryer, frizzier and hard to comb through due tangling. Remedies for scalp i've tried so far: Rubbing conditoner with olive, olive oil on its own=Very sticky hair! ACV rinse.. But still dry and itchy scalp after washing.. and some parts stick to scalp..

Now im willing to change to some cheaper products, cj as example.. But i really don't know what to purchase for my frizzy/fly away hair. anyone could help me out please?:sad:

    I'm wondering if you need more moisture. I did not find the KCKT to be moisturizing enough for my hair as a LI, and I can't imagine it would be any better as a RO or cowash. I also found the shampoo extremely stripping. But I do love the KCCC. I would suggest trying a more moisturizing conditioner to see if that helps, toss the KC shampoo (if you want a good low poo I love the SM shampoo), and maybe do a weekly DT.

    HTH!

    It's possible you may have developed psoriasis. I have it on my scalp, and I use a topical foam on the patches. The foam quickly absorbs into my scalp..I can then care for my hair the way I normally do.

    Giovanni TTTT low poo will help with the itching, but I never use it more than once a week. A dab of straight tea tree oil will help too. I can only use a tiny bit, because my hair is fine (even though it's crazy thick). Also, how are you massaging your scalp when rinsing out your products? That makes a HUGE difference for me.

    Thanks for the tip! The itch it a lot less though.. I can get away without washing for 2 days or so, but after 3 days i notice the same white patches stuck to my scalp again, and they are quite hard to remove! I would be rubbing some condish on my scalp and finger massage it for a minute or so, then while rinsing i keep repeating that, but no luck so far!
