Yep This Old School Product Stopped My Itchy Scalp

So if you have been following me at all on You Tube you know I have been battling a itchy scalp. When I say I was miserable for months that is the absolute truth.  My miserable scalp is what started my transition to natural hair. I tried so many different treatments to stop the itch and some didn't work at all and others only worked for me a day or two.

Someone told me to try this old school product called Sulfur 8 . Who knew something so simple would work. I started applying it to my scalp every night and after a week I noticed that I had no itch. None whatsoever.  After a couple of weeks I started applying it a few times a week only.  I have been using it now for at least 3 months and it has completely stopped all itch. Now I only apply 1x a week on shampoo day. I'm so happy to finally find something that works.
Whats the negative ? Well it contains petroleum. I know that works for some but it doesn't for me. So I have to be careful and only apply it to the scalp. If you want to skip the bad ingredients there are tons of SULFUR base products on the market.

Of course I made other small changes like no sulfate shampoo.

Active Ingredients: Contains: Sulfur 2% (Antidandruff)

Inactive Ingredients: Petrolatum, Lanolin, Sorbitan Trioleate, Polysorbate-81, Mineral Oil, Menthol, Triclosan, Fragrance

I Can't Be Without This Product !!!

Keeping both my relaxed and natural hair moisturized during this transition is so important. The last thing I want is to have breakage at the line of demarcation . If that happens my big chop will come sooner than later. To be honest I want to avoid the Big Chop altogether. 

I'm so in love with the Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Anti Breakage Super Softening Butter.  I use it as a leave in and a moisturizer. A little bit of this product goes a long way. It makes my new growth and my relaxed hair so so soft . I just refuse to run out of this stuff.  It is a must have for me right now. The whole Dark and Lovely Au Natural Anti Breakage line (green tops)  is geared towards transitioning hair.  If your transitioning please give this product a try !

9 Months Post Relaxer

I can't believe I'm 9 months post already. This transition has been a easy one so far. I'm glad because I'm planning on a long transition . If I could transition for at least 2 years that would be great . Three years even better.

The last 2 weeks I haven't worn my hair units (wigs) maybe a couple of times. It has just been too hot !!!  I've been keeping my hair in these two french braids .  I style it on the weekend and this protective style usually last almost a week without restyling .  Even though I like to co wash or wash my hair a couple of times a week . I have been stretching my wash days out to at least a week.  I'm trying to do the least amount of manipulation as possible.

Even with all the shrinkage I can tell my hair is really growing.  I plan on flat ironing soon so that I can cut a inch or two off.  I'm just going to be stuck at this length for a while because I will be cutting my hair as it grows.  I'm passing on that big chop option .
