Help! Hair problem!
Hello! All looks very different, I haven't visited for a while! Wondering if someone could help with some advice for my daughters hair. She 's mixed race but has quite a tight curl which would turn to dreadlocks within a week if left to it's own devices. I've always been quite proud of the condition of her hair. We oil it and plait it in 4 plaits and that usually keeps for 3-4 days and then it needs doing again. She washes and conditions it once a fortnight usually. This has worked just fine for the last 10 years but all of a sudden we seem to have got this terrible build up of oil that I can't get rid of. Before when we undid her plaits her her would be silky and soft, nourished by the oil. But now when I undo the plaits it's hard and sticky - it's really horrible. I wonder if it's because for the last six months or so she's been washing her own hair in the shower and maybe she's not rinsing properly. But anyway i've tried soaking it in bicarb and apple cider vinegar which was a remedy I found on the internet but that's not worked. Also when I 've done that it really feels as though it needs more oil, even though it's still sticky, but then I'm loath to put more on for fear of adding to the build up I still haven't got rid of. I feel like the only option would be to cut it all off and start again! We've used various oils over the years but for the last three years have been using 'Kids Organics' Hair and Scalp Treatment. Hoping one of you might be able to help. Unfortunately my husband and his family fell out when his mum died so we don't have that resource any more. Thanks
