You'll know these past two or so months I've been complaining (almost daily - what fun) of my scalp troubles... things were bad, real bad.
I tried everything to help, coconut oil, mushed up avocado (the worst experience of my life) lemon, tea tree, lavender... basically everything I could think of or anything Pinterest recommended.
In the end I gave up with the treatments and stuck to keeping my scalp clean with good shampoo & conditioners. Luckily the 100% Pure Burdock & Neem Healthy Scalp Shampoo* entered my life and things started improve, it was a slow process and my scalp isn't completely back to normal yet but it is getting there.
The 100% Pure shampoo is a funny 'un, it's basically liquid in the tube, which isn't the best for application as it pours out at an alarming rate and then has a jolly good time running down your arm and then down the drain! I've taken to putting it straight onto my scalp from the bottle to avoid waste as this stuff is good. It smells like tea tree and foams up like any ordinary SLS laden shampoo (though obviously there is none) and leaves my scalp feeling fresh as a daisy. I think sometimes scalp specific shampoos can leave a lot to be desired for the rest of your hair but this is a good egg and my hair is soft and shiny too. I also have the matching conditioner* which is dreamy but as I don't apply it to my scalp I don't see the point of mentioning it here.
Last weekend on the fabulous #FieldTripTour in London I also picked up a coveted item off of my wishlist to aid my scalp healing process.. The John Masters Organics Deep Scalp Purifying Serum. I've wanted to try something from this brand for oh so long and was spoilt for choice but knew I would regret not picking up this particular bottle. This is a treatment serum for your scalp and helps relieve irritation, oily buildup and flakiness. It can also apparently aid hair growth and ease hair loss (but as I've only had it a week I have no idea on that one). What I do know is that this is like the biggest "ahhhh" feeling for your scalp, it's cooling and soothing and just feels amazing. The gel comes with a pipette and it's a bit of a farce to apply yourself but I just apply it to the worst areas and give my scalp a good massage. I want to say this has helped my scalp already after 3 uses but I don't want to seem to much of an eager beaver.. for now I just really love the cooling effect and will have to report back with a review... eventually.
Do any of you suffer with scalp troubles and have any tricks up your sleeves?
