Condition, Condition, Condition!
This is the most important thing for your hair as this area needs some extra love right now to get back on track. Create a schedule to make sure you deep condition weekly or after every wash. Explore leave-ins and oils (like Jamaican black castor oil) to help nourish your strands and heal your achy scalp. Don’t be afraid to mix at home.
In addition to deep conditioning, make sure that your hair and scalp stay as moist as if you lived in a rainforest. Seriously. Section that area out and moisturize daily or as necessary to keep your hair as soft and supple as possible. I personally spritz (not drown) my scalp daily with equal parts water, virgin organic coconut oil and grapeseed or avocado oil to keep it hydrated.
