    Hello Ladies and Gents,

    I am having a problem with my scalp. It seems to itch no matter what I do. I wash my oil-hot-oil-treatment\" class=\"hrln\">hair and scalp thinking it may be dirty, i no-poo as to not dry out my scalp and hair, I have moisterized, I have not moisterized, I tryed shea butter, but nothing seems to help. (i don't do all at once ^_^ ) my scalp always itches. Has anyone every heard of this or have had this problem? Does anyone have any ideas on stopping the itchies??

    How much water do you drink daily? Your scalp may be dry...

    Try changing products; you may have an allergic reaction to something you're using.

    Make sure you're rinsing enough after using poducts because build up on your scalp could cause the itchies.

    ITA with the suggestions already given by the other ladies.

    If all else fails, consider seeing a health care professional. You may have a medical situation that needs treatment.

    HTH.

    spritzing my scalp witha mixture of water, rosemary and lavendar eo really helped with the itchies when my scalp was healing

    check the conditioner you use to no-poo, it might contain chemicals you react to : I for instance can't bear methylchloroisithyzolinone, and I always stay away from silicones (especialy dimethicone and amodimethiconol)

    I agree that you should try to drink more water too!

    good luck!

    It may be allergies. I have the same problem and it always starts up when allergy season starts. I have hayfever, asthma, and eczema and my scalp has been crazy itchy for about the past 3 weeks since the allergy season began. By summer I'm back to normal and no more itchies.

    You might need to clarify with apple cider vinegar, that really helps me.

    I agree with Mahoganyqt. A good ACV rinse may do wonders. It could also be an allergy. I found out that I'm allergic to anything with a lot of mineral oil in it.

    Cosigning on the ACV rinse remedy. Also I spritz scalp with a glycerin/water/EO mixture on the itchy spots.

    I thought I was the only one!!!

    I've tried no poo, this shampoo, that shampoo, homemade, not oiling, then oiling with coconut oil, jojoba oil, mixing with this that and the other, AVC, rinsing with nettle tea ....I'm so tired of trying without the results.

    I want to start locing my hair soon, but don't feel that I can until the inching calms down

    I feel your pain whome_notyou, I hope you find a solution that helps you soon.

    I would try Nizoral. I used it for 2 weeks and it really cleared up my dandruff.

    My hair has the same problem.I've tried everything from no poo to no oil. I think I may jsut go without products for a while. Here is an interesting link I found though that may be a reason for the itches

    My hair has the same problem.I've tried everything from no...

    I agree.......my scalp used to itch so badly I felt like . The solution was to stop putting anything directly on my scalp! WOW! What a difference AND I don't use as much products either. (I currently wear twists using only wgo and a little condish when I originally braid -- not totally scratch free, but, close to it )

    Girl, I had the same problem; I mean, I tried everything from drinking water, spraying my scalp with water/oil, and oiling my scalp, but nothing seem to work until.......... I came across a product called "Sulfur 8 medicated anti-dandruff conditioner' and at the botton of the bottle it said it prevents dry itching scalp.

    Now, let me tell you, the day I sprayed my scalp with this, I felt a sudden relief. My roots felt so soft and shiny and it also eliminated the itchies. I brought this product at walmart. Give it a try, it might help.

    the only thing that helped this problem for me was
    1.) drinking more water
    2.) not oiling scalp
    3.) daily conditioner washes.

    Now my scalp feels so much better.

    THANK YOU!!! I have been going thru this lately with my protective styles (no products and plenty of water). I think my problems is that I am not cleaning my scalp when I wash. My hair gets clean, but I don't know if my scalp does. I am going to try the ACV rinse, and the sulfur 8 conditioner and focus on my scalp and not my hair!! Thanks for the tips

    I'm co-signing on the no products/oils and daily washing. I shampoo 2 times a week and do no 'pooing the other 5 days. My scalp is finally calm . -- Tryce

    Girl you probably got Scoriasis (sp). Go to the doctor so you can get some medicine for that head.

    Sulfur 8 spray and grease is good for medicating the scalp too.

    It could be something you are eating. keep track of when the itching flares up. for example, every so often I used to experience intense itching in the kitchen area - it was so bad that I would have to scratch and would end up with small scabs the next day. I later learned that this happens to me a few hours after I eat anything with MSG. It also happens after I eat raw tomatoes. Lastly, my entire head itched intensely whenever I used Suave Milk & Honey. It was unbearable. It took a few times before I realized it was the conditioner. So keep an eye on your food and products - maybe you'll be able to identify a trigger. If that doesn't work, try OTC Nizoral shampoo or see a dermatologist.

    There were some really good suggestions on here. I never thought that it could be something that causes an allergic reaction as far as something you eat.

    Right now I am using the ORS green lifting shampoo( I can't remember the name of it.) I was using this black soap by burt bees but that seemed to leave my scalp super dry (say that like you are walking through a desert!!!! ) Although I only used the shampoo once I saw a major difference in my scalp after my completely dried! I was sooo wonderful I was like whoa. Now as for the itchies, I am using this ORS pomade called No more itchies and it's working. I have some itchies because that is just normal for me but not the bad I think I am going to scractch my scalp off type itchies. Believe me I have had that feeling before.

    The ACV rinse didn't work for me completely. Maybe because my scalp was too dirty. Maybe now that I have gotten a good cleaning the ACV will work. I think I am going to use that shampoo every other week or maybe every three weeks.

    Good Luck
