Before doing these steps, if your scalp have symptoms of shingles, fungal infections and other problems, then you need to make a appointment with your doctor to treat it well first.

If not that serious, have a check whether your skin was sunburn. In the summer, especially the first bright days of summer, it’s easy to get a sunburn on your scalp. Just like anyplace else, as your skin heals, it gets itchy. If the itchy cause by this reason. Use an aloe vera shampoo or conditioner to alleviate the itching.

Also have a check for head lice. Have somebody check your head for bugs or their eggs called nits which usually attached near the base of the hair shaft. If there are head lice on your scalp, don’t worry, use a medicated shampoo as directed, wash all bedding and clothes you’ve worn, in very hot water, then dry on hot for at least 20 minutes. Dry clean all non-washable items, vacuum carpets and upholstered furniture. Soak hair-care products (combs, brushes, scrunchies, barrettes etc.) in rubbing alcohol or medicated shampoo for an hour.

 

2. Treating the Synthetic Hair With Vinegar And Water Mixture

Before installing the synthetic braid and or synthetic wig, it’d better to pretreat your synthetic extensions, soaking them with the vinegar and water mixture will break down the alkaline solution.

Put a 2:1 split of water and vinegar (or apple cider vinegar) into a bucket, and saturating all the synthetic hair extensions for about 15 minutes, then rinse the hair in warm water and add conditioner to soften hair. Rinse again and air dry the braids or synthetic wigs.

But if your hair is already installed, you can fill the vinegar mixture with a spray bottle and spray directly onto your hair and scalp thoroughly, let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out. You’ll be happy during the process, the itchy will be gone, and this step can be use time to time, it’s helpful to dandruff too.

 

3. Change Your Shampoo and Hair Conditioner Regularly

Don’t have apple cider vinegar? You can also try washing the hair with regular shampoo to rid of the alkaline base. This may require a bit more more work to get it all out. Make sure to condition hair, too.

Trying a new shampoo and conditioner for two weeks will help remove any build-up that has resulted from constant use of your traditional brand.

Another thing you can use if you’re broke or don’t want to buy another shampoo is get olive oil, mayonnaise and broccoli; mix them together, and rub it on your scalp. Olive oil actually reduces oiliness, mayonnaise hydrates and gets rid of lice and adds luster and shine, while the broccoli can clean deeply. You can also use an egg for nutrients. But remember to eliminate any hair products that contain alcohol from your hair care regimen. Alcohol is a powerful drying agent, and can easily cause an attack of the itchiness.

 

4. Dry Your Hair Thoroughly

Damp hair will cause product buildup, and your scalp will be subject to the drying action of evaporation, which in turn can lead to itching. Even worse, mold can grow in hair! You definitely want to prevent that.

MelodySusie® High Quality Dark Brown Long Full Curly Wavy Glamour Hair Wig Fashion Review

41CxlaXFRFL

Let me start by saying that, this is my first time ever buying or putting on a wig in my life.

I like it! I have no hair, I bleached it to death and just decided to shave it all off in an attempt to regrow my natural hair and have it be healthy again. I am a month in and I already miss having hair so I bought this.

I combed it out (the comb sucks) I gave up and did a big no no and brushed this sucker…some of the curls held up perfectly, some didn’t. If you like to flip your hair from side to side or play with it a lot(like I do)…prepare for ratty tangles. In my opinion, the tangles kind of make it look more like real hair, so that’s a good thing.

The part is a little funny, but nothing a cute head band or some distraction/styling can’t fix..I stuck a bow on it and called it a day ;) It’s really cute in a low pony tail, and the length was not outrageous (I am 5’1 it came down to about an inch above my belly button) but I trimmed it anyway to underboob length. I’m a short fat girl so it just made me look shorter and fatter at that length. This would be even cuter if it was cut into a bob. I might even buy another one just to do that. The hair is soft…but it doesn’t really feel like human hair, which is fine by me..it isn’t overly shiny like some wigs are. I’m a rambler so I’m just going to stop right here and make a pros/cons list to save us both some time.

Pros:
Looks believable if you get it on your head just right and you’re not LOOKING for signs of a wig (aside from the part)
The length and curls are nice
The adjustable strap was fantastic ( I THOUGHT I had a big head, but I have it on the smallest setting and that is perfect)
Even when you brush it (violently) it holds up okay
The color was pretty ( I got dark brown, it’s more of a medium/dark)
Easy to throw in a low pony tail and forget it’s on your head.
Fast shipping
Decent packaging
Soft(mostly)

Cons:
Tangles easily
Strange part
A bit itchy, but this might not be avoidable (see above: Wig Virgin)
A bit hot (USE THE CAP) I have no hair and it still felt so much better with the cap on
Might have to trim
Sheds a little (but I’m pretty rough, so it could just be me going barbarian on it with my brush)

All in all, for the $18 I spent on my first wig, this was a great deal!

index

Don’t waste your money in this terrible, silly fake ponytail hair extensions. Don’t consider it a good chance to save your money by buying a very cheap ponytail extensions, don’t trust any positive review written on the product pages. They are all fake, just like the product.

The extensions is vey fake & synthetic looking. It can not even match my natural hair a little bit! My natural hair is very healthy & shiny. When under light, it looks even more fake. After I received the extensions, I once thought about returning it to get refund back. But it took me several days to argue with the onwer, and no result was made before I gave it up.
