hey guys welcome back to my Channel today I’m going to be showing you a quick and easy way that i cleanse my scalp in between washes. this is a method that helps me to control issues with dandruff or flaky scalp that may pop up in between washes or if I’m at a point where I need to wash but I’m in a pinch for time or my schedule won’t permit the washing or i might be just a little bit lazy then this is something that I do I wouldn’t say that this is something that you should make habit of but it is a good method to put your in your just-in-case bag. so just in case you don’t have time just because your schedule doesn’t permit just in case you’re from not feeling well and you can’t wash your hair this is something that you can do to maintain your scalp and just keep it a little bit clean in between your wash days. so while you’re here make sure that you go ahead and subscribe click the button wherever it is give this video a thumbs up if you’re interested in seeing more like this if you’re new thanks for stopping by my oldies and goodies thank you so much i see you i appreciate you so yeah so without further ado let’s get into it so first what you need is either a cotton pad like a cotton square, a baby wipe or facial wipe a gentle facial wipe or i would even advise like an old t-shirt and the good thing about old t-shirt is that you won’t get a lot of lint being left behind in your hair that you would with a cotton square you know what I mean? you wouldn’t get like I any fiber being left or at least not as much as you would with cotton so I like to use these old dried out pack of wipes. I save these I don’t throw these away because they do come in handy I will either use them on my face i will saturate them in either my micellar micellar cleansing water how do you say that? Micellar or micellar . let me know in the comments if it’s micellar or micellar. anyhow! my cleansing water or my rose spray i will saturate in that and then go ahead and wipe my face so I never throw these out but what they do come in handy for is cleansing the scalp I have one of them here and like i said this is a good sturdy one you can purchase wipes and stuff at the dollar store but you do want to be careful and just be mindful that some brands of wipes, facial wipes I find to be a little bit more sturdy but there are some brands on baby wipes are pretty cheap and they actually start to disintegrate as if they were toilet paper and they’re not even the flushable wipes I’m just talking about some cheap wipes that leave a lot of stuff behind so just be mindful of that and just be careful with that so your wipes and you’re going to need some witch hazel this is 86% witch hazel if you can find 1 that is higher in witch hazel content, 90 and above, the better because that means that you are dealing with less alcohol the higher the witch hazel content you’re already dealing with dry scalp sometimes you know the less alcohol that you are putting on your scalp the better this is the brand of with hazel that i have with me there was another brand i was using but I forget it has like a floral label on it i forget but I used that I left one in Barbados when I had it This is the witch hazel I’ll be using once you clean your scalp you just want to follow up with whatever your favorite oil is This is my home made mix that I just keep adding oils into this is my Nature’s Essentials “My Everything” oil. just literally those three things the wipe, the witch hazel and your favorite scalp oil so without further ado let’s get into this cleansing situation. so first I take my hair down and you can separate your hair into four sections and that would probably make it easier to work section by section i’m just going to separate into two sections here and put the back half of my head into a ponytail then split the front half into two sections and go from there next I fold the wipe four times and this is just me being a little bit methodical about how i use the wipe you can use as many wipes as you want but I only intend to use this one and this is just to make sure that as a section gets dirty I then fold the wipe, or flip it, use a clean section to wipe my scalp and I just go ahead and saturate and make sure that I get witch hazel all throughout the wipe and then I start to work so first I start near the temple and I just go in and rub vigorously with the wipe to start lifting the dirt off my scalp and i will saturate as i go through with witch hazel just to make sure that the wipe stays you know wet, stays moist. so I just work through and just keep rubbing back and forth making sure to really get into the parts and even under the locs and as you can see here there’s dirt so this slow mo[tion] is just to show you that once I feel apart of the wipe is dirty I flip it and use the other side to clean the scalp so I know for some people this may look like I’m really working in there like really getting it in but this doesn’t irritate my scalp at all the wipe is smooth and it doesn’t cause like any scalp burn or scalp irritation at least for me it doesn’t. here i hope you guys can see the bit of flakiness going on at the top of my head and the great thing about the wipe and it being moist with the witch hazel is that the witch hazel really helps to lift the dirt and the flakiness and dandruff and any residue off the scalp and really get the scalp clean you know in the meantime and between time. there’s the dirt to prove it again, once i feel like a section of the wipe is dirty I just unfold it flip it in another direction so that i am working with a clean section as i move along remember to keep reapplying your witch hazel so that your t-shirt or your wipe or whatever you’re using doesn’t go completely dry and here are the results right here on this wipe of all the dirt that was lifted off my scalp during this process I know gross… gross! but it works next i just go ahead and oil my scalp and i start by separating my hair into 2 sections straight down the middle and proceeding with oiling if you’re interested in what is in these oils you can go ahead and watch my video after this one of course on how i retwist my hair and style my hair in protective loc braids the link will be in the description if you’re interested in checking it out so just make sure to massage my everything that’s the name of the oil, the nature’s essential oil. i just make sure to massage that into the scalp and then next i on to my home made mix and just use a little bit of that to run through my hair and put it on my scalp as well because it smells really really good next I just proceeded with styling and I put my hair into two milkmaid braids and secured them at the back with a rubber band ok guys so that’s it after I did my cleansing with this now very dirty wipe i don’t know if you can see that. so after I wiped with that just let it [my hair] dry for a little bit and then went on to oil my scalp with my oils. your roots obviously won’t be fresh 2 death after this, okay? they’re going to be a little bit fuzzy but they won’t be completely unraveled if you have a kinky hair like mine or hair with a tighter coil they won’t be that unraveled. I can’t really speak to what may happen with a looser curl especially if you are palm rolling like i do so yeah it’s quick it’s easy it’s something that can tide you over in the meantime and between time when it comes to getting your wash in, if you can’t do that exactly when you should – the flakes are showing up but it’s effective and it’s good for what it is like I said don’t make a habit of this because if your witch hazel is high in alcohol content that may be a little bit drying on your scalp initially, if you get what I’m saying. but this is also good to maintain locs in the early stages when some people recommend that you don’t wash so much for fear of your starter locs unraveling or becoming undone so if that’s a concern that you have i would recommend witch hazel. i prefer witch hazel to those cleansing gels that are on the market because i do find those really drying. and guys another tip I would recommend oils that are good for the scalp so stuff with tea tree, peppermint rosemary, eucalyptus, lavender anything that really helps with antibacterial antifungal properties get some oils with those in it to help with the dryness and the flakiness that happens and …remember my ginger wash? click that “i” or a link in the description the leftover bit from that ginger wash if you do put in a spray bottle after you cleanse your scalp you might find it beneficial to spritz your scalp with that leftover ginger rinse after you cleanse with the witch hazel that would be a great time to go in with that ginger rinse that you put in the spray bottle Guys I hope that this was helpful or useful for you if this is something that you think you’d be able to try or that may help you with your routine let me know in the comments if you guys like this video please go ahead and give it a thumbs up don’t forget to subscribe check out all the links that are tagged here when you click on that I and don’t forget to follow me on social media I’m on instagram pinterest Periscope as LANOMRAH i am going to get back on Twitter eventually but definitely follow me there at those three visit the website where we usually have extra info and if the website isn’t your jam check the description Bar below where i’ll have a little bit more info on what goes on in the video so guys thanks again for watching and I will see you in the next one.
