IOTW: Dry Scalp Cream from Head & Shoulders

ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product I’m currently loving. This week: Dry Scalp Cream from Head & Shoulders

IOTW: Dry Scalp Cream | STAINED COUTURE

For the last couple of years, I’ve been having to deal with dry, flaky scalp. However, depending on the time of the years depends on what causes it. In the summer, it’s usually due to product buildup – curly hair products can be very heavy. During the fall and winter, the dip in temperatures tends to dry my skin and scalp.

I usually try to combat my dry scalp by oiling my scalp, but some oils can be heavy. Recently, I decided to try a new product aimed to moisturize dry and itchy scalp. A few months ago, I heard that Head and Shoulders finally had a line dedicated to natural, textured hair. One of the items in the line is the Royal Oil Daily Moisture Scalp Cream. In the colder months, my scalp gets drier and flakier. So, this product immediately caught my attention.

Head & Shoulders is known for hair care products for dandruff and this line is no different. Formulated with Pyrithione Zinc, this scalp cream is hydrating way to treat dandfruff without having to wash your hair.

What I enjoy about this cream is the texture. Despite it being a cream, it’s very light and melts into my scalp. Also, it feels very soothing and instantly moisturizing. The directions call for you to apply this up to 4 times a day. However, I mainly apply it at night, as part of  my nightly hair routine. Applying it at night has helped me not have to wake to a flaky hairline.

The only downside I have with this scalp cream is when my hair is straighten, it causes it to curl up. I combat that by smoothing my hair down afterwards with a brush and scarf. #BlackGirlMagic

I will say that this cream has made me want to try other products from Head & Shoulders Royal Oils line. You can find this scalp cream and other items from this line at most retailers that carry Head & Shoulders products, including Target and Walgreens.

EMPTIES: Spring 2019 pt. 2

I’m not sure how this happened, but I’ve been going through so many beauty products lately. I was trying to do a new Empties post every season, but I have used up way too many product these last few months. Therefore, I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to take an executive decision and do  EMPTIES: Spring 2019 pt. 2. Using up so many products over the past couple of months is a good and bad thing. It’s good, because I’ve been cautious about using up products instead of buying new things. The bad thing is that I’ve now iut of different products, such as night creams. So, I have to start buying some new products soon.

The main way I protect and prepare my hair is deep condition my hair weekly. My favorite deep conditioner masque that I’ve been using and loving is Eden Body Works Split End Repair Masque.

Current Favorite Hair Products: Spring 2019

A couple of months ago, I was having a real love/hate relationship with my hair. Actually, I feel like this happens at least twice a year and I’m okay with that. So, I did what I usually do, buy a ridiculous amount of hair products with the hopes that some or all of them make me feel like Beyonce with a fan; fabulous. SPOILER ALERT: All of them didn’t work. Although, they didn’t make me feel like Queen Bey, I did find some new favorite hair products. I consider this a fair compromise, TBH!
