  1. Hi liz
    Shivi p here.
    Need your suggestion about scalp cleansing. I was facing severe hair fall problemishes from past many years and after starting back combing for 1 to 2 min daily my hair fall problem stopped. Now my concern is that if I stop combing my scalp hair fall will again start.So what should I do to clean my scalp properly

    1. Hey Shivani, We all lose 100 hair a day and that’s totally normal. So the days that you are not brushing your curly or wavy hair, this hair is stuck and not “falling”. You will find my article about scalp massages really informative because massaging your scalp with essential oils actually have a cleansing effect. Using clean and safe products without any bad ingredients also leaves your scalp devoid of product buildup. Even doing “champi” many times in the week may not be a good idea because excessive external oil confuses your scalp. A confused scalp will go in two directions- it may either become dry because it becomes dependent on the external and stops producing its own natural oil. OR it will go in the opposite direction where there is excessive sebum or natural oil production which leaves hair feel greasy or dirty. So here is what you do:
      1. Use safe conditioners with NO silicone or parabens or drying alcohol.
      2. Find ingredients of your current products online and paste them into this website called “is it CG” to know if thy are safe or not.
      3. Switch products if what you have are unsafe.
      4. Do scalp massages with essential oils to encourage hair growth.
      5. Deep condition hair at least once a week. I use Rawkyn but many people like to DIY.
      6. Do the bentonite mask as a shampoo to detox your scalp and hair.

        1. I cowash most of the time but I also need a shampoo but NOT for every wash. Sorry, I should’ve explained further in my last comment but ill share it now. I have to shampoo but only once a month, maybe twice if I use bad products. I love As I Am cleansing Pudding – It’s a sulfate-free cleanser, very moisturising. You can check out my review to learn more about that product. You can totally use that as a shampoo but I wouldn’t recommend it using more than maybe 2-3 times a month. I now discovered Bentonite Clay Wsh -it does the same job as a shampoo but BETTER because it literally attracts toxins from your body like a magnet, something ordinary shampoos can never do. You will have to read that article to learn more about that too. There are many ways to cleanse the scalp but my method is to avoid getting your scalp dirty int he first place and that is by using safe products. And when you have to cleanse anyway, use safe products or natrual DIY solutions that encourage hair health, not harm it like commercial shampoos, you get? Read these articles to understand the methods. BTW I love this! I’m so pleased that you would ask me and trust me, I feel honoured 🙂

          What is cowashing –
          As I Am Pudding –
          Bentonite Clay Mask –

    1. Ask me countless curl questions man 🙂 So ideally 3-5 minutes using your fingers – not your nails – is ideal. This helps to loosen up any buildup and then you rinse it ALL out. Some people who don’t rinse out the scalp properly have issues later. Cowashing is foolproof if you follow the method to the T.
      Here’s the method, with video:

  2. Hey Liz, this a great article I must say about hair care. Amazing facts you have given here I really appreciate you for that. Here I got an answer to many of my worries about my hair care but still can’t find to get rid of my hair loss. Please suggest me some best. Best Regards!

    1. Hey Giselle, Hair loss is contributed by many, many things especially the products you put on the outside and your health on the inside. If you’re transitioning then hair loss is a part of the damage too. Let me write a detailed post on this, offering my suggestions, backed by research, ok?
