A while back, I posted that while I love wearing head wraps, my scalp was quite itchy on some days, especially when covered with a headwrap. I didn't intially know what the deal was, but after a bit of experimenting, I realized it came down to two culprits:
- Oiling the Scalp/Hair Immediately Before Wearing the Head Wrap: A close friend actually got me privy to this. The morning when I would oil my scalp or hair then immediately don a wrap were the days when my scalp would itchy like crazy.
- Not Wearing a Satin Scarf Underneath the Wrap: The four wraps I own are beautiful and I love the look. The material leaves a bit to be desired. My favorite has some sequins on it, which I think contributed to quite an itchy scalp. I am now wearing a satin scarf underneath the wrap at all times.
