Stimulate Your Scalp!

When it comes to taking care of our tresses moisturizing is key. I've been using SoftSheen Carson's Roots of Nature Stimulating Scalp Oil for the past couple of weeks and have been impressed with the results. The convenient nozzle allows me to part my strands while easily dispensing the semi-fragrant oil, which is enriched with shea butter and green tea to help prevent breakage.

Since I have a super dry scalp, it's imperative that I use products like this scalp oil that soothe and moisturize without creating that unwanted stringy, greasy look that so many other products create.


SoftSheen Carson's Roots of Nature Stimulating Scalp Oil available at www.drugstore.com for $6.99

What do you use to combat a dry, itchy, and flaky scalp? Would you like to try this product? Just leave a comment and two lucky readers will receive a bottle. The winners will be selected randomly and announced tomorrow.

i'd try it. i normally dont put anything directly on my scalp because it makes the rest of my hair all oily and stringy like you described. also, it thickens my hair at the root when i add oil there so i really dont like it. i want something that will make it lay down

mimieyes said...

I truly believe in shea butter. I'm look forward to try this product.

Chai said...

oh! Luv to try;-)!

dejoi said...

I use an olive oil-based product. I may try this too since it has shea butter and green tea in it.

I use coconut oil, but if you massage your scalp everynight, that dry scalp problem is alleviated tremendously-believe me!

Jeanie said...

it's interesting because hair oil is so important in the indian culture, too. almond oil, amla oil, and coconut oil are all popular oils for indian hair... i've never been a regular, but you've motivated me to moisturize my scalp this weekend :)

Tasha said...

I use a mix of rosewater and glycerin and sometimes coconut oil for my scalp. I am willing to see waht this new stuff is about though.

T said...

Good post. I haven't really moisturized my scalp in a long time because I pretty much wet and condition the natural tresses every day or every two or three days.

LOL @ antithesis, telling your roots to SAT DOWN somewhere.

I'd like to try I have a really flaky scalp and would love to try something that will not weigh down my thick hair.

Chrissy said...

I too have a horribly dry scalp. I would definitely love to try this product. I heard that green tea is good for the scalp.

FYI....Be careful with itchy and flaky scalps. I thought my scalp was just extra dry, but the dermatologist determined that I actually had a scalp fungus. He prescribed some meds and it soothed my scalp right away. Now I use olive oil to moisturize, but will try the Carson's too.

Coco said...

I would like to try it! I have the dryest/driest (have no idea what the correct spelling is and I hate being wrong) scalp known to mankind.

Thanks for the post. I haven't used this product before but I'd give it a try. Like another commenter on here, I use olive oil to help combat dryness...but just a bit of it so it doesn't clog the pores, weigh down my hair or make it oily and flat.

Khadijah said...

My scalp is extremely dry. Right now I'm using braid spray (even though i have no braids in..lol) but it moisturizes my hair like no other. I'd really like to try this product since I'm always looking for the next best solution to my hair woes.

I melt a little shea butter and put it in a bottle with a nozzle and apply it directly to my scalp. Sometimes I add a little tea tree oil to it too. It's an all natural moisterizer and it works great. My hair is never too greasy.

Charlene said...

i use coconut oil too, but i wud certainly love to try this!

Rebee said...

I have noy been able to find anything to combat my flaky scalp. Maybe I'll give this a try. Thanks BGG!

biancaR said...

Im definitely going to try this! I already have a really dry scalp and the fact that I workout and sweat daily doesnt help. Thanks for the tip!

K-Bear said...

BGG, I'd love to give it a try especially since you say it doesn't leave the hair stringy and greasy. There's nothing worse than having the greasies!

Thanks for posting on this product. I've been eyeing it the last two times I was in Wal-Mart(shameless plug). Normally, I concoct my own hair/oil/treatments by using distilled water, jojoba oil, EVOO, and almond oil and maybe some other carrier oil for a nice scent. I have loc's so its impertative that I keep my babies moisterized and the scalp clean and healthy.

Tiffany said...

I don't normally put anything on my scalp but this product looks good. I would love to try it.

faith said...

I would def try this. I currently use coconut & olive oil for my dry scalp.

Carmesha said...

I sometimes put coconut oil on my scalp, or spray a mix of water & peppermint oil when my scalp is itchy. I would definitely try this product

Yasmeen Christian said...

I should use something, lol.

Andrea said...

I would love to try this product!
