So its been about a week and a half since I’ve installed my yarn wraps and my scalp is itiching like crazy. So I figured today I will give my scalp a nice cleanse. Now its like 5 degrees outside and I know I do not have all day to allow the wraps to dry so I’m going to skip washing my whole head and just stick to the main culprit….MY SCALP.
So after searching Youtube for some ideas, I came across BlackOnyx77’s channel and her video for Washing and Scalp Cleaning Routine – Yarn Braids. In it she describes what she does to cleanse and clarify her scalp when it is in a protective style. She initially does a baking soda scrub, where she uses baking soda and water and with the help of an old toothbrush, scrubs her scalp. She then follows that with an ACV rinse. I then plan to dilute some conditioner and JBCO in an applicator bottle and rinse my scalp with that.
I shall be back with my results…
In the meantime, here is the video that I watched. 🙂
