I went no 'poo about a month ago and I've been struggling with dry, flaky scalp. I tend to be dry in general, and i work in a high rise, and it's super dry in the winter here so all these things are combining to mean I have nasty nasty flaking happening, and a bit of itchy-ness, which I just don't like for obvious reasons. I read that doing a coconut oil treatment on the scalp can help, so I tried doing that tonight.
Fast forward to trying to rinse the oil out without using shampoo....ummmm, not happening with water for obvious reasons. I read on a "long hair" forum somewhere to use conditioner to rinse your hair. I didn't really want to use a commercial product at all, but tried it anyway. This also did NOT work. Sooo, I resorted to shampoo, just on the hair, trying to avoid the scalp. Ugh, not what I wanted to use but I didn't know how else to get the grease out!
For those that do some type of oil treatment, what do I need to do differently next time??
