Major Scalp Itchies

Yep you read it right, my scalp has been on fire!  Okay so it doesn't burn or anything but the itchy scalp I've been experiencing is like no other!  Now I may or may not have mentioned that I've been unbeweavable since Dec and no not the same weave! (really that's just nasty). Anyway about 2 weeks ago my scalp began to itch.  At first very mildly but day by day it got worse. It was only in the area of the weave, which was due to be taken out 2 wks later so I took it out and did my normal process, you know, relax the edges that I leave out, wash, d.c. etc. Well the day after I finally weaved it back up, not only did the weaved section begin to itch again, the hair that I left out and relaxed was now itching just as much and honey let me tell you it went from 0-60 in no time. It even woke me out of my sleep a couple of nights.  I felt like Beyonce, Pat your weave ladies...pat pat pat....the hubs had all kinds of jokes, said he got worried I might rattle my brain lol.  I tried applying to my scalp all my usual concoctions, sea breeze, witch  hazel and jbco but nothing helped.  Relief was temporary and I mean like 10 - 15 mins temporary and then it was itch city all over again.  I didn't know what to do.

Well thank GOD for essential oils. Relief came to me in the form of essential oils.  I decided to use Tea Tree and Rosemary E.O's as they have antiseptic and anti-fungal properties.  I used JBCO and Organic Cold Pressed EVOO as my carrier oils, mixed all together and applied with my Roots Only applicator bottle. I applied all up in those tracks, I meant buisness!  Now it has been just a few short hours but I must say that my scalp has calmed down TREMENDOUSLY.  I hope this is the long term solution I was looking for b/c it itched so bad it was hurting my soul...my whole body is saying AAAHHHHH.  I will apply again tonight b/4 bed and then every night until this problem is resolved.  I don't know who, what, when, where, how or why this happened in the 1st place but that itch was too much for one woman to bare. I hope this concoction is a permanent fix b/c I can't take another sleepless night!
