Scalp Detox For Locs & Natural Hair - Alternative To ACV Soak

Do you have dry itchy scalp? Do you suffer from Scalp Eczema? Do you have buildup in your locs that just wont get out? If you answered 'YES' to any of the above questions, then this post is just for you.

For folks with scalp eczema (or seborrheic dermatitis), we are told to use the medicated stuff the dermatologist prescribed and oil our scalp. However, sometimes that is just not enough. For regular dry scalp, they say oil your scalp and you will be fine. And lastly, for build-up in the loc or on your loose natural hair, the recommendation is to do a ACV rinse/soak. I personally have not found ACV soaks to be very effective on my scalp and here - but I will touch on that in just a second.

Why Detox on Scalp?

Our scalp goes through A LOT! We apply oils and products to our scalps and often times it is not washed thoroughly. On top of that, our scalp secretes sebum (its own oils) and lastly our scalp sweat and that can be quite acidic as well. Again, sometimes our scalp never fully gets cleaned properly. If you have scalp eczema or dandruff or any other skin condition of the scalp that flakes, then you have that to clear away from your scalp too.

So, doing a detox where the main focus is the scalp is very important. I am sure you do noneed me to tell you what the benefits are of a clean scalp. While doing a scalp detox, why not let your locs and loose natural hair benefit too? The mixture and steps I am sharing below should be done to your scalp and hair for maximum clean and detox. Frequency? I would say 3-4 times per year or when you have a eczema breakout or if see build-up.

Lets Get to Mixing and Detoxing!

What you need: (Make enough that can cover your scalp and hair length with the mixture)
  • Baking soda (I am sure some is in your refrigerator. Great Cleansing agent and exfoliate)
  • Cleansing Shampoo (I recommend Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampooj)
  • Tea Tree Oil (anti-inflammatory benefits) and Rosemary Oil (stimulates hair follicles which promotes growth)
  • Mix this up into a nice thick smooth paste
  • Apple Cider Vinegar rinse in a spray bottle

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs Hi Loves, I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation. In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs. Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?

Lupita Nyong'o Attacked by Dencia (Maker of Whitenicious Bleaching Cream)

Lupita Nyong’o, the gracious black beauty was an honoree at the Essence Women Luncheon a few days ago. In her speech, revealed her struggles being a black girl to womanhood and how images of the supermodel Alek Wek made her see beauty in herself as they both shared the same 'midnight' complexion. She then pulled out a letter a fan wrote to her thanking her for appearing on the scene just in time before she ordered Decia's Whitencious bleaching cream.  “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.” Who or what is Decia's Whitencious Cream you might ask? Dencia is the Cameroonian-Nigerian singer 'was' of dark complexion but been using bleaching cream to lighten her skin to a 'very pale' complexion. Now I urge you to look up FOOL in the dictionary and her pale
