This week I’m switching things up a bit. Shedding and an itchy scalp have been plaguing me for yet another week and I am not a happy camper. I believe the culprit of my itchy scalp is my oil mix. I just threw the rest out and made a new smaller batch. My tea rinses seem to work on wash day but 2 to 3 days later hair seems to be everywhere and I am not over manipulating my hair because I’ve kept the same low bun style all week. Starting to think its stress…
 Pre-poo: I got the idea of doing a tea rinse as a pre-poo from Divachyk over at Relaxed Thairapy hopefully it makes a difference. I parted my hair in four sections and applied my tea rinse with an applicator bottle focusing on my scalp and roots. My tea rinse consisted of 2 bags of green tea, a few drops of lavender oil and peppermint oil, and a few drops of glycerin. Then I slathered coconut oil on my tea drenched hair and let it sit for about 40 minutes with a plastic cap on. Rinsed with lukewarm water.
 Cleanse: Used Babassu Marsh Mallow Shampoo bar one time on each section. Rinsed.
 Tea Rinse: Applied my tea rinse to my scalp and roots again, I allowed it to sit on my hair for about 3 minutes before applying my deep conditioner on top of it.
 Deep Conditioner: Applied As I Am Hydration Elation to each section. Covered my hair with a plastic cap for an hour and rinsed with cool water.
I let my hair air dry and the next day I flat-ironed my hair because my mother (a.k.a The Ultimate Hater) said it looked uneven…It’s not, but I do need to work on my nape area, any tips? Anywho, I ending up rocking a low bun and a side bang, nothing special.
For now the itchies are at bay and I’ll update how my double dose of tea rinses worked out for me next week.
Having any “hair” issues this week?
