There’s no other way for me to describe my itchy scalp without being dramatic. Lets just say, I don’t have flees, I just need to be treated. It was wash day Monday, and my scalp was on E. It had been through its daily slick back, sloppy bun, and finally, the day had come. I had stretched my comb over look alike purposely for my special delivery, Lisa’s Hair Elixir. This line was created to promote healthy hair growth in a 4 step curl cocktail.
Before any and all processes, I detangle and section my hair to prevent shedding or breakage while maneuvering. I started with the dynamic duo “fortifying scalp spray + restoring hair oil“, I separated my hair into sections using clips to expose my scalp. Using the spray, My first focus was on my problem areas- my sides, and crown. Not only are those the driest spots, they’re the sensitive spots on my head.
Picking up the spray, I immediately read what it was used for, opposed to just knowing it was something to relieve my over due scalp. It has ingredients like cedar leaf to soothe the scalp, camphor oil to stimulate blood circulation, and rosemary oil, to strengthen the scalp. LIFESAVER! When the spray and my scalp met, I could hear the choir singing!
Tipping over the oil onto my scalp using the nozzle, I felt it the oil running along my scalp soothing those problem areas. It was almost like the cherry on top. I then gave my scalp a pick me up by massaging it all in activating the Basil Oil which is an ingredient that promotes circulation, along with Peppermint Oil, and Clary Sage that I learned moisturizes and soothes itchy irritated scalp.
Allowing this to settle in, and take its course, I washed dishes, and began to go through my products that I am sure I won’t be using any more in preparation for Saturday’s product swap. Starting from the scalp, and working my way down the strands, I made my way to step three- shampoo! This shampoo was a shocker. It lathered! I literally did the Home Alone jaw drop mid wash! I’m used to a co-wash situation. You know, the soak up, section, rub, and rinse. Not today! The shampoo, sulfate-free of course, has a about two handfuls of ingredients that I was just happy I didn’t have to chuck down as a supplement. I don’t need any more surprises. Although it lathered, I didn’t have much detangling to do prior to conditioning. The shampoo glided down my hair like water on windows.
The conditioner? It was a complete match made in heaven. Although the spray and the oil were pumped up with relievers for the “Itch and Co.”, the conditioner set it off! I am a stickler for a conditioner that makes my scalp feel like its breathing. I had a moment- a moment to exhale. I feel like my scalp sang a song. After reading the label, I realized that it is filled with oxygen and omega for hair growth. That’s all I needed to see, it basically told me, it has a voice of its own. How clever!
