Protective styles are LIFE but they can also be itchy! Here’s an easy Q&A to banishing an irritated scalp.
Q: My new-growth under my protective style ALWAYS itches at night? What can I put on my scalp?
A: This is pretty common for a protective style that’s been in for a few weeks. Between sweat, heat from exercise or showering, and potential product build up, your scalp can really get itchy. Try using your Head & Shoulders Royal Oils Nighttime Scalp Tonic Lotion. This lightweight, no-rinse lotion is formulated with hemp oil and peppermint oil to soothe an inflamed scalp. Apply it in between braids, twists or under a wig or clip-ins before bed. You’ll feel an invigorating tingle that keeps your hair from itching all night long.
Q: Should I massage it in?
A: Yes, you can massage your scalp and new-growth just before tossing on your bonnet or scarf.
Q: Can I use it every night?
A: You probably won’t need to, so we’d recommend sticking to using it every other night.
Q: Will it make my hair greasy?
A: No, it’s lightweight. You should also make sure to keep it on your scalp and new-growth, and not on your protective style.
