ISSUE: Curly, Highlighted Hair + Dry, Itchy Scalp

December 7, 2010 at 8:59 am | Damaged Hair, Dry Hair, How to Use, Troubled Scalp | No comment

Dear Philip,

I’m having a hard time figuring out the best product for my hair type. I have curly, long, highlighted hair and my scalp is dry, flaky and itchy. What is the best shampoo and conditioner to use? Also, which of your styling products do you recommend for a quick style and go? (I usually wash my hair, apply a leave in conditioner, a styling product such as AG Recoil, then hairspray, and let it airdry.) I’m looking for a simple routine that controls my curls and stops them from turning frizzy, bushy or crunchy.

The best thing for you would be a Rejuvenating Oil treatment.

  1. Put a generous amount directly on your hair and scalp (your hair should be dry) and massage it in to help dismantle the cells and flakes. Use a blow dryer to warm up the oil and help sink more deeply into your hair.
  2. After 15-20 minutes, apply some Peppermint & Avocado Clarifying Shampoo on top and massage it in for 3-5 minutes. Then get in the bath or shower and add a little water and lather up to break down any excess oil: Your hair will hold on to the moisture it needs.
  3. Follow with my Anti-Flake Relief Shampoo. It’s even more effective when used after the Peppermint Clarifying Shampoo, and it contains a moisturizing aloe complex. Together, that should take care of your scalp problems.
  4. Use the Light-Weight Deep Conditioning Crème Rinse on the ends.
  5. Also, the pH Detangling Toning Mist spray is a really important product for you – it corrects the pH of tap water and makes your hair and scalp feel good.
  6. As for styling: Crème of the Crop “Lite” is great for curly hair. Just rub a dab between your palms, run it through damp hair, style your hair with your fingertips and let it air dry. Your curls should come out springy, soft and shiny.
