I hope you've had a good start to the week! Today we bring you tips of how to avoid an itchy scalp if you wear protective hairstyles with synthetic hair.
Marley twists is a hairstyle that gives a great naturlista vibe. However, unfortunately, the material of the twists can feel itchy against the scalp. Especially when they’re freshly applied.
But, don’t worry. We have you covered! Here are some tips to help a prevent dry, flaky scalp.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar - Before installing synthetic hair to your hair, you can soak the extensions in apple cider vinegar. This can help to remove the protective sprays pre-applied to give the hair extensions a sheen. This spray can sometimes irritate sensitive scalps which can cause itchiness.
2. Natural oil- Applying our naturalgrow-it-long scalp serumto your scalp helps to nourish your scalp when in protective styles. It helps prevent dandruff. The nozzle is an easy guide for you to apply it in between braids.
3. Wash Your Scalp –Whether your hair is in a protective hairstyle or out of it, you must make sure to wash it regularly. I am constantly surprised at how many ladies think protective hairstyles are a no-go for washing. When in a protective hairstyle, you should not wash your hair any later than 6 weeks. This helps keep your scalp fresh and able to breathe with limited product-build up. If you didn’t wash your face for more than 6 weeks, can you imagine the build-up of grime or bacteria settling on your skin? It’s unthinkable! So, you should apply this same practicality to washing your scalp. After all, it is an extension of your face. This will eliminate an itchy scalp and help aid with hair growth. Also, washing your protective hairstyle can be a gentle process with you simply massaging shampoo in-between braids. It doesn’t have to be as harsh as you may imagine.
I hope these tips help you avoid a dry scalp.

I absolutely love the back 2 school kit, I was actually quite dubious about it working at first but oh my gosh it's perfect. The honey rain juice is a must and perfect for daily use. The fact I'm not putting so many products in my sons hair daily makes me happy, it's not greasy nor does the product feel like its building up. I really feel like I've found the one :) another bottle of rain juice on order sonic don't run out.
I have tried so many products. I can hand on heart say that this is the BEST product we have ever used! It leaves my child’s hair soft and refreshed. I’ve never felt it so good. I have been using these products for a few months now and I’m still so happy.
