I usually shampoo about once a month. It is now 15 days since my last shampoo, and my hair and scalp feel fine. You can see a lot of gray hair rolled up onto itself. It may look like lint, but if you look closely, it is loose gray hair. Also, my hand is holding a bundle of my Locs out of the way so that you can see my scalp.
No flakes. I have a pretty normal scalp. Not too oily. Not too dry. The flash on my digital camera seems to be causing my gray hairs to reflect again looking like lint. However, it is not lint.
I have more gray hair coming in.
Many people are always trying to connect the "loc look" and the "scalp look." I wanted to tackle both in this article. I have a resistant, coarser hair. As my hair has grown out, even I have been amazed by the uniqueness of my hair. I hope to shampoo soon because I want to do my wet loc check-in. I am at Day 15 post shampoo/wet set. I am still holding on to my style. My maintenance is different from those with scalp challenges. I honestly can go a few more weeks without shampooing, and my scalp will still look normal. Anyway, I have been enjoying my loc challenge postings. I hope to start capturing my clients' hair again next month to share.
