I recently had a client come to me for a maintenance cut, and she was having an issue with her scalp - I have heard this enough times that it's warrants a post. She mentioned her scalp didn't feel right- it wasn't particularly itchy, but that it felt "tight". The more we talked, I discovered that when she saw flakes she thought it was dandruff, and used an anti dandruff shampoo. BINGO.
The shampoo she used was actually more drying to her scalp, causing the tight feeling.
After cleansing, I applied Mop Top Mongongo Oil to her scalp, and gently massaged it in. She felt instant relief. I added Ouidad Curl Immersion Triple Treat Deep Conditioner throughout her hair, and then added several spritzes of Ouidad Mongongo Oil Spray, and worked in through from root to end.
This can be left in for as little as 30 minutes or even overnight.
Wash oil off of your scalp with a mild cleanser like Ouidad Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil.
After rinsing, add conditioner back in through your curls and style as usual.
