We’ve all been there before, a dry scalp which is both uncomfortable and irritating. Furthermore, dry locs can often be disheartening and challenging. But what causes dry scalp and dry hair?
In order to determine how to cure dry scalp and dry locs, we first need to explore what causes each condition. Once we investigate, only then can we come to solid conclusions and reliable solutions. Let’s have a look at all of our possibilities.
Causes and Cures for a Dry Scalp
Not only is a dry scalp uncomfortable and irritating, once you scratch the impossible-to-relieve itch, you wind up with flakes all over your roots, locs and shoulders.
The main culprits causing dry scalp are:
Some of the most efficient ways to cure a dry scalp is by drinking more water and eating a well balanced diet. A well balanced diet with heaps of vegetables and fruits will provide your scalp with the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay healthy. But that’s just phase one. If you’re living in an area with harsh water we recommend ordering yourself a filter that can be screwed on directly to your showerhead.
If the cause for dry scalp are weather conditions, or deficiencies, we recommend treating your scalp to an oil treatment and using more gentle shampoos. Massaging jojoba oil, coconut oil, or our Yaya Oil into your scalp will help relieve irritation and provide your scalp with all the nutrients it needs to stay hydrated and healthy. And finally revamping your products with all natural build up free shampoos and conditioners will strip the build up and dirt from your scalp without removing all those yummy oils your body produces for a healthy scalp and hair.
Causes and Cures for Dry Locs
Many of the causes and cures for dry locs are similar, if not identical to a dry scalp. If you’re experiencing dry hair, take a closer look at your diet. It’s important to make sure you’re eating sufficient protein, B12, iron and an abundance of vitamins and minerals throughout the day.
Dry locs can often occur when we don't hydrate our locs with a sufficient amount of moisture. Locs are certainly not a no-maintenance hairstyle and we all know that by now. If your locs are dry, look into the conditioner you’re using and see if it has the right balance of ingredients to keep your locs moisturized. Then consider adding an all natural pre-conditioner to your routine if you haven’t already. Pre-conditioners work wonders on the hair, especially for those in between washing days. You can use it throughout the day and revitalize those locs that are looking lackluster and dull. And finally, hot oil treatments all the way! We love any excuse to pay a little extra love and attention to our locs. Treat yourself to a hot oil treatment in the salon or in the comfort of your own home. Your scalp and hair are probably just drooling over the words: hot oil treatment.
Sounds like we are on our way to healthier and more beautiful locs this year, don’t it?!
