(Cornflour only, no cocoa here) In the beginning, I had white-head from the amounts I used, Nowadays, I just put my first~second fingers into the flour pot(x1~2 times), rub that amount into my hands thoroughly to distribute it evenly (you don’t want flour clumps on your scalp/hair) and massage it in to the top of my scalp, or along the underside to the scalp and brush it through and rub the strands of hair until it’s all off my hands… Maybe once every 3 or 4+ days now and using a lot less. First month or two was hell, but it quickly got better after my scalp realized what was going on and started cutting back on oil production.
Flour at night before bed, so during the night your bedtime movements help the flour spread and absorb that grease. If it’s super bad in the morning, try using a hot hair-dryer or straighteners to encourage excess flour to come out (NOTE: I found after doing this, my hair was heavy and clumpy, let it cool before judging + blow it afterwards with cold air on the dryer).
If your hairs already oily, don’t add more oil, it’ll make it 10x worse to manage, look and feel horrible, as well as encourage a bad bacterial ecosystem on your scalp. I mean, your problem is oily hair, why add more? >_<
Combing in some water can help the oil move along and hydrate, oil’s there to help trap moisture into the strands, which in turn bonds to the keratin in your hair (forming new protein bonds) and making it stronger, if the top of your head is darker than the parts of your hair below the ear-line, you need to brush more water into the strands below the ear-line and then thoroughly brush from scalp to tip to encourage the oils to move along.
- Don’t add more oil.
- Only water it if dry.
- Make sure to flour massage the scalp just before bed: it has all night whilst you do nothing to work on your head - Easymode!
The challenge is building a routine that works for you.
