Before coloring my hair earlier this month to mark my three year loc anniversary, I had a really bad eczema flare up! To combat the flare and to prepare my scalp for either hair color or all the rinsing that would be involved in rinsing out the hair color, I dedicated three straight days to caring for my scalp.
My shampoo of choice for eczema flare ups in general is Head & Shoulder's Classic Clean shampoo. It can be found at most stores that sell hair products specifically and at your local supermarket (Target, Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc.). I shampooed my hair nightly (my hair seems to do better being wet overnight versus during the day) and I simply rinsed my hair out with water and kept it moving. I didn't bother conditioning on day two and day three, because my hair shaft itself was not shampooed.
This method worked for me extremely well. The next time I experience a really bad eczema flare up, I plan to revisit this method! Hopefully now that Summer is in full swing, my allergies will not bother me as much. :) ♥
