peppermint oil with vitamin e oil baths.
using aveeno advanced body wash in the shower.
i have purchased some nubian hertiage products which are made of natural ingredients. the particular ones are said to have healing properities. i hope they help!
i have the and
it has been used once so far and what i will say is they both smell super yummy. and it took longer for me to start scratching again.
a thick lotion helps- like the one above or pure shea butter. also putting an oil like the vitamin e oil right out the shower then the lotion.
i'll report any new skin changes or a soothing alleviation if such arises.

I started with Hair One Tea tree oil cleanser and it was feeling so nice. Then did an oil rinse with avocado oil. Then I went on to use the cocoa butter conditioner last. This was my second time using this particular Organix brand. I very much liked the Shea Butter one so figured I'd give this one a try.
Well well well...my hair is NOT happy with the cocoa butter conditioner. After scrunching my hair with it in the shower and getting ready to partially rinse. the itching ensued again. Aha! the culprit is caught!!! I am not sure what is in this one that isn't in the shea butter one but I would say sensitive scalps be warned.
It has only been moderately relieved with my Doo Gro Anti-Itch Growth Oil and some scratching (yeah not advised lol).
The unfortunate part is sans this revelation, it is a pretty good conditioner. I like how it makes my hair feel and look. And the smell is very chocolaty.

But when I used this powder UNDER my foundation, it was much better! I was able to see it make my foundation go on smoother. And my skin was able to stay moisturized since my liquid foundation was applied next. I found that I did not get too shiny later in the day having used it (I sweat on my forehead and upper lip lol).
So all in all with primer it might stay all day. I would not recommend this product for everyday wear as they state. It has a very nice look in photos as shown above. And works best under foundation if a person of color and may work in more varied ways if fair skinned. Like it (after reworking it) but not in love.

Soft, cottony puffs make powder application flawless and easy. Great for quick touchups and eliminating shine.
Pros: Smooth Finish, Applies Evenly
Cons: Poor Quality
Best Uses: Powder
Describe Yourself: Budget Buyer
it is soft but it would be nicer if it were thicker. it can not really be considered a puff or any kind and is only thicker than paper. it goes on evenly (any powder i mean) but it is hard to use
