As some of you may or may not have read in previous blog posts, I've had issues with dry scalp in the recent(and not so recent past). Some of the flakes WERE product related and I cut those products out of my rotation, which helped tremendously. But NOW it's happening again, and it's WAY worse than before. It always seems to favor one side just a bit more and the flakes seemed to have been friggin injected with steroids or something because it was/is RIDIC! You're not supposed to scratch your scalp because you're basically injuring it and all it will do, as a defense mechanism, is flake up again. Now, I literally HAD to at least gently remove those flakes because all of the scalp massages in the world wouldn't have removed them, but at gentle as I was, it caused that same section to flake up again, although not nearly as bad as it was Monday.
So now I need to determine the source:
- Is it product related? I just started using Ori Organics(a couple of weeks ago), although I just tested some new products this week. I really hope it's not because of those products, as they have provided some of the best moisture to date. On a non-related note, those new product reviews will be posted in the coming days.
- Is it hydration-relation? I have done a poor job of keeping hydrated over the last couple of weeks. Working weird/busy hours hasn't helped. No bueno. I've been upping the water intake as a result. Gotta do better.
- Is it diet related? Again, this ties right along with hydration. My diet has suffered over the last few weeks to a month, and it's showing(fatigue). Making a conscious effort to make changes.
