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!
