Default HELP!!! MY WEAVE ITCHES!!!

So i'm hiding my hair using a natural sew-in and for some reason my scalp is on FIRE!!! I had this sew-in for only about 3 weeks now and it's been itching since week 2 . I used to wear weaves all the time (braids, twist, sew-in, etc) and I might get the occational itch here and there but it would go away. I transitioned with weaves but i'm starting to notice that now that i am natural my scalp itches WAY MORE with a weave in my hair.
I definately try to keep my hair and scalp clean a moisturized whenever i wear weaves...
--wash twice a month with diluted shampoo and conditioner
--co wash atleast once a week with diluted conditioner
--moisturize hair with leave in with every co wash
--seal scalp with oil (EVOO, soybean oil, or coconut oil) with every co wash

sidenote: I don't really like coconut oil though because for some reason it makes my hair feel like straw and hard so i only use it when i can't find my other stuff.

This is more current with sew in weaves and i'm am about to go NUTZ!!!
I know the rule is to not "pat yo weaves ladies" in public but i find my self not even realizing that i'm tearing a hole into my scalp, eyes closed and all. and to make it worse when i finally get into the braid underneath to scratch one spot another spot starts to itch something fierce.
Has any of you guys experienced this? Could it be that maybe my head is not used to wearing weaves as often anymore? what else can I do!!??!?! I want to keep this in for a while but mmmaaannnn this mess itches... this junk has been itching through out me typing this message UUGGH!!!! (I think it knows i'm talking mess about it)
Current install afro curly

Did you wash the hair in ACV before installing it?

According to your regimen, it sounds like maybe you're not moisturizing enough. Its a bit more difficult to moisturize and/or oil your scalp when you have a weave but try to do it every other day or at least 3 to 4 times out of the week. Use a color applicator bottle or any bottle with a pointed tip to get in between the tracks and that should relieve the itching.

When I wore weaves, I used to just get one of those little combs with a metal pick on one side, get in between those tracks, and SCRATCH!

When I wore a weave there were only TWO ways to resolve it - either use ACV rinse after shampooing OR Sea Breeze. Another option is to use Dudley's Scalp & Skin Antiseptic.

If you were close by I would give you MY bottle of it since its unused.

Occasionally make sure to add about 5-10 drops tea tree oil to olive oil & apply to scalp especially before or after washing. Tea tree oil is anti fungal. Also try sleeping on silk pillowcases, not satin it has to be silk. Silk is naturally anti-bacterial & anti-fungal which means it doesn't hold dandruff or bacteria which is what is causing the itching in your scalp.

You're using conditioner (wax, glycerin, gummy stuff) and oil on the regular but shampooing only once/month. I'd shampoo more frequently and rinse very well. If you've washed uninstalled weave tracks you know they hold a lot of shampoo and conditioner - when this stuff is up against your scalp and product isn't rinsed out completely that can itch.

I'll first say I really like the style on you. What kind of hair is that?

Second, I'm sorry that you're experiencing the itchies. I know all too well the "scritchin with your eyes closed"

Are you sure you're rinsing out all the shampoo and conditioner when you cleanse? Try shampooing/co-washing and rinsing your hair in sections and lifting all the tracks and massaging to make sure it gets out of all the nooks and crannies in there. I think you may just have some residue in there from poor rinsing.

Also, just a though but maybe you should look into using a braid spray daily to your natural hair to keep the itchies at bay too and to keep some sort of moisture. I'd also suggest doing more moisturizing to your natural hair and scalp instead of 1x a week.

Oh yeah, before I forget, make sure you are soaking up that excess water from your braided hair underneath so you don't get mildew growths too. I didn't dry my hair with a dryer but I did T-shirt dry and try to soak up between every braid.

Last weave I had:
  • Co-wash 2-3x a week with Suave Coconut
  • Shampoo every other week w/ Liquid black soap OR Dr. Bronner's Peppermint
  • Leave In: SCurl
  • Moisturize: African Royale Braid Spray
  • Moisturize/Seal/Grease: EVCO
When I did take my weave down, after 10 weeks my hair was very very moisturized. Just make sure to take care of your hair underneath. If your hair does not like EVCO, then don't use it.

Pour some Sea Breeze on your scalp and get some BRX spray.

I'm actually going through with this exact problem. My weave is annoying the heck out of me but I have moisturizing every other day with a mix of premier rehydrant spray and diluted elsta qp intense conditioner (old formula) so it hasn't been so bad. I believe that my scalp has to get use to wearing a weave again since its been a year. I hope you find a solution to your problem.

Getting moisture to the scalp is the key...I have used water based for the braids/scalp underneath the weave...Infusium 23 or Fantasia IC....

Get some sulfur 8. You get growth and it will stop itch right in it's track. That's the only product that ever works for me when it comes to itching scalp. I get the regular original bottle. I used to think maybe any sulfur based products would work but I tried others and they didnt help with the itch.

I actually use a color applicator bottle and I use soybean oil or evoo to but i don't do it often like you said. so at least 3 to 4 times a week huh? that makes alot of sense cause my hair drinks water like it's dying of thirst.

thank you ms.blue... I also think my hair and scalp needs to get used to wearing weaves. i'm telling you when i was younger I used to always wear weaves and i NEVER had this issue. I also had a relaxer then as well but i don't know if that had anything to do with it..

I have some Infusium 23. do you think it would be bad to mix the infusium 23 braid spray and oil together? I only ask because it would really cut down on the amount of time it takes me to do my hair.

I mix a 1/4 cup of ACV to 3/4 cup of distilled (filtered) water. I also add EOs to make it smell good like 8 to 10 drops (each) of Tea Tree oil and Lavender.

Default Re: HELP!!! MY WEAVE ITCHES!!!

omg this info was like liquid gold!!!! I washed my hair at like 3 something in the morning cause i was dying lol. I washed it with diluted dr. bronners peppermint liquid soap shampoo and regular diluted conditioned then I did the acv rinse with the measurements that msteaze gave me. I felt like my scalp was tingling from the acv rinse. i was kinda scared at first but then i thought it could be killing the residue and other stuff. then i rinsed out the acv and to my surprise my leave out hair and my weave felt alot softer. could it be from the acv? I wonder why acv does that? oh well i'll just google it lol... but anyway back to the subject. after I was done I got a spray bottle and got to mixing. I mixed African royal brx braid spray, soybean oil, infusium 23, hollywood beauty tea tree oil and about 10 drops of peppermint eo. when i was done spraying it into my braids and scalp i instantly felt my whole head tingle and cool. it was soooo refreshing
let me tell you guys I was able to sleep like a baby cause my head didn't itch over night like it usually would. and even today my scalp didn't itch like it normally would ( i mean i do get a little here and there but nothing major at all) I am sooo up-ing my regimen. thanks again to all of you wonderful ladies for this MUCH needed help!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm def gonna moisturize more than 1x a week (prob like 3x a week) and wash every other week.
