    Did you start with coils or 2 strand twists? Sometimes that makes a difference. Also, I’ve noticed it may depend on your texture as well. I started with 2 strand twists and I have thick 4c type hair. A lot of different things play a role in it. Have you tried castor oil? I know it has helped my scalp tremendously with itching!

      I started with coils I have a number of textures mixed. I will def try the castor oil. She just said use a light weight oil.

        Good luck! Be sure to mix the castor oil with a lighter oil. Sometimes castor oil can be strong or harsh on some people.

    Hey chica, as one who frequently wears braids as a protective style, if your scalp itches, you can use witch hazel and a cotton wool ball to clean your scalp or there is waterless shampoo. You have options besides washing. If you must wash after two or three weeks, try using a stocking cap and don’t massage your hair too much to avoid fuzz and unraveling. Good luck. Hope that helps.
