Dry scalp and other scalp and hair conditions effect so many black women worldwide. I personally feel that this is, at least in part, due to sisters using so many product on our hair that weren’t designed for our hair and are even dangerous for the women they were designed for.
I remember walking past women whose long flowing blond hair would smell of flowers and rush to the supermarket to get the most floral looking shampoo I could find. The box made it clear it wasn’t for my hair type, or even my hair colour at times, but as a 15yr old black girl in the 90’s, the supermarket shelves didn’t have anyone looking like me on anything but perm kits, so I was used to it. I’d use it and have wonderfully smelling hair, but how good was it for either of our scalps’ to use those chemical cocktails on our hair?
I now know that those shampoos as well as my lifestyle was a major factor in the dry scalp I lived with for many years, dry scalp I was hoping those very shampoos would help me was away.
Having a dry scalp, where your scalp is dry and flaky, can be annoying, embarrassing, uncomfortable and contrary to what I was told and thought as a teenager, the best way to deal with it, isn’t to slap on a thick layer of chemical filled pomade or use an anti-dandruff shampoo and nothing do else.
There are so many things that could be causing this symptom and many natural ways to alleviate it, but today I’m going to share 3 possible reasons your scalp could be suffering and 3 natural ways to help reduce the symptoms by addressing the causes.
They are exactly what I did plus more and I’ve seen just these 3 things help sisters I know with their scalp health significantly.
