Why is my head itching?

Itchy Scalp!

My head is itching me like crazy and I don't know why (I washed and deep conditioned on Sat).  Well my hair does usually itch me, but not to this extent. Last night I decided to put my hair in a load of chunky twists, and see if that would last me as a protective style for the rest of the week until my wash-day on Friday/Saturday.  I greased my scalp with Castor Oil mixed with Peppermint Oil.  Don't know if that was the culprit, but I'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes.

Any help or advice that you may have would be greatly appreciated

  1. Hi there, I get itchy scalp too. Aside from peppermint you can use tea tree essential oil mixed with extra virgin coconut oil or castor oil I tried both and they worked really more itchy scalp for me.. hope this helps

    1. Thanks Tessidy - I'll give that a try, with the coconut oil and see how I get on!

  2. i love your twists, they look great! when my scalp itches and oil doesn't help i spray a mix of aloe vera juice, water and sometimes lavendar or rosemary oil on my scalp... generally calms the itch for me... especially after i work out :)

  3. Hey Jenna, thanks for the compliment, and the advice, i will deffo dry out the aloe vera juice, sounds like a good combination x
