ღ Day 8 ღ 2014 Hair Growth Journey – Protective Hairstyle & Itchy Scalp

So, around day 5 my scalp started to itch a little. I was patting my head like a crazy person. I got kind of nervous, because I didn’t want to have to go 3-4 more weeks with irritated scalp. I figured my head is totally confused and trying to adjust to this new thing I am doing here. I don’t know. Anyways… I decided to get my extra virgin olive oil, put it in a bottle and apply to my scalp and massage. I did this really quickly and went to bed. When I woke up no more itching. Ever since I did that, I have not had a problem with itchy scalp at all. It has been eight days and I have not washed my hair. I will be getting me some witch hazel later today so that I can keep my scalp clean. I really don’t want to wet my hair while wearing these twist. I don’t want to risk damaging my hair. I could wash these twist, but it is not going to get my hair thoroughly cleansed in any way. It will just cause my hair to start reverting and also my hair may stay wet for a long period of time. So, I am trying to avoid it. If I can go about 4-5 weeks without washing it will not be anything really new for me. When I wear my two strand twist with my natural hair, I don’t wash due to tangles and knots.

This is still all new to me, so I am discovering the things that are going to work for me. I am loving every minute of it though!

  1. I’ve followed your natural joiner and you have been one of those to inspire my own! Your twists look great!! I’ve found that a good quick cleaner is a spritz of water and lavender oil. It naturally lifts the dirt from your scalp. When I did Marley twists I really didn’t want to wet my hair either but a light spritz to my scalp and a massage kept it clean and smelling great every couple of days. I also kept oil on my end by finding them in the twists so they stayed moisturized. It worked out great!!

  2. Thanks for itchy scalp tips Alicia! This will help with my two strand twists, my head sweats and itches from my workouts, so this is a much needed alternative in between my washes!

  3. Omg, I predicted that your scalp would start to itch/irritate when you said that the salon supplied the hair in your video. I went thru the same HORRIFIC experience when I got my Senegalese twist done for the first time, in a long time, abt a year ago. The kanekalon (type of hair) hair that they use for Senegalese twists is coated with an alkaline solution that can cause really bad allergic reactions for some ppl. For next time, you should purchase your own hair (I recommend the Xpressions brand braiding hair) and rinse it with vinegar and water before installing your braids. Just Google “Vinegar rinse Kanekalon hair.” It sucks that you had to learn the hard way though. :/ Hope this helps!

If your stylist did your twists the right way, she’s hidden your own hair with the extensions, so you shouldn’t have a problem when you apply water.
