I WASHED MY HAIR!
Sisterlocks are not only teaching me to love me wholly, but I'm learning a thing or two about patience.... My scalp is very itchy and flaky..and I don't think its from the lack of oil because I haven't "oiled" my hair or scalp in months prior...but I've always had dandruff. Before SLs when I had dandruff, I just washed my hair...and that was about every 4 or five days....so...going from the 4th to now (yesterday) was torture! I couldn't stop scratching, and flakes kept appearing, even after the acv (which was a temporary fix). So, last night I decided to wash my hair.... It took me an HOUR and FIFTEEN minutes just to braid (twist in my case since my hair is so short) and band and clip. Trying ever so gently not to mess anything up...not to be too rough...trying not to mess up my little babies... I diluted the shampoo and spritz my hair and rinsed, rinsed, rinsed...and today, I've come to these conclusions... 1) I diluted the shampoo too much cuz my scalp doesn't look or feel clean at all. 2) I twisted too tight, didn't get shampoo into the sections, just on top 3) I think I have slippage in the middle back of my hair and the front, but none in the back 4) A lot of my ends seemed to unravel Hmm....I don't think I zig zagged enough....i think I was being so careful that all I did was put some water on my hair and not wash really. I did separate the locks and let them air dry. I awoke this morning to still finding flakes....I have huge flakes only in the top and sides of my hair, not really in the back....I just had to shake and go. Hopefully things get better.... Any suggestions??
