Does your itchy scalp make your want to pull your hair out?
I must admit, it bothers me so much to see women patting their heads. When I see this, it honestly looks like a case of head abuse! LOL
Some may read this and say, HUH? Well, instead of scratching some prefer to pat their heads in a fast motion (Remember, Beyonce’s *Pat yo weave ladies.. pat pat*) for itch relief. I wouldn’t say that this is the best site to see. Don’t be that girl!
Nonetheless, there are oils and itch relief concoctions that can be used to help with that problem.
