One thing I've been doing differently is not using and tea tree or dandruff shampoo. I've been doing more co-washes because I wanted to stop using shampoos that stripped my hair of moisture and changed my curl pattern. I used apple cider vinegar and did not see any relief. So now, I'm experimenting with a home remedy I've "heard of" on social media: onion and ginger juice! I added aloe to the party because I'm desperate! Take a look.
|My scalp - June 22, 2014. Not pretty - this is 4 days after co-washing.|
I used 6 -7 inches of ginger and two medium sized yellow onions.
Step 2 - mix the ginger onion juice with aloe vera juice:
|Aloe vera juice, spray bottle and ginger onion juice|
|Aloe vera juice|
|Final mixture: ginger, onion and aloe vera juice|
Step 3 - Apply to scalp, cover and let the anti-fungal treatment begin! I left the cap on for about 1 hour. My hair is so thick, I just parted it and applied the juice to each section. I was boo hooing the whole time (it's the onions...the onions I say).
|After spraying before capping|
|The treatment was working....I could feel tingling....|
|After rinsing (scalp looks free of debris)|
|Pomade of choice! Applied before picking. My favorite styling product and you can pronounce all the ingredients!!!!!!!|
|Picked out afro...free style...no patting into submission...|
|Shrinkage!!!! Whoa mama!!|
The fungus saga continues..........stay tuned for more updates!
What else can I use to combat my fungus parties???
Peace and love!
