I had a moment of crisis last week, my week old Senegalese twists started to itch, and when I say itch I mean within an hour I thought I was going to itch through my skull. I was so close to ripping out my combined 7-10 hours of work off my head just to get to my scalp and so that I could stop this itching.
Instead of destroying my beloved twists I turned to my trusty girls on youtube and found that this is a common problem, and we did have a hero to solve our problems! APPLE CIDER VINEGAR! So I ran out to the store bought a spray bottle and a trusty thing of this supposed super hero. Still skeptical about how this would work and how the smell would linger in my hair. I mixed 30 % apple cider vinegar and 70% water into my spray bottle. I then took each section of my hair and sprayed my scalp with this mixture until it was drenched. Once my scalp was drenched I took a wash cloth and ran my finger along each part between my twists. It was INSTANT refreshment! After I had cleaned my scalp I went back and cleansed it with water to rinse the vinegar. I felt like a new woman. So I am a believer, Apple Cider Vinegar is my hero. It saved my hair style and my hard work.
Since then I have gone through this same process twice, about once a week and my scalp has been itch free and happy! I have since become entranced with all the other things my super hero could fix, it turns out that it is more than just a hair hero, you can use it to whiten your teeth, wash your face to solve acne, clean your house with it, get rid of fleas off your pet and even more. I am so far just trying the tried and true scalp cleaning method, and giving the face washing a try, my face has been breaking out lately and I am going to see if this can solve this problem as well. So for any of you out there with dandruff or itchy scalp problems, even relaxed girls, and girls that don’t have their hair in braids, give ACV a try, it is a cheap and all natural solution that I have found to be quite refreshing.
To end this post I will show off some of my looks from this past week, I went back to grad classes this week after two weeks off so my hair and outfits reflect my teacher style more.
Have a wonderful week.
Love your do and grow that Fro
