The truth of the matter is that many, NOT ALL, women who wear a weave or braids don’t wash their hair at all or not enough. Sounds gross and some may even get offended but I don’t give a rat’s buttocks because you are nasty!
When I wore a weave my stylist washed and styled it as if it were my very own hair. Washing caused my weave to become loose but she was there with her needle and thread to tighten it up. One thing for sure my scalp, hair and the weave was squeaky clean. There are too many times on the metro women with braids are digging into their hair, examining the dirt removed from the scalp then tossing it. If you are close enough you may be grossed out even more from a nasty sour smelling aroma that smacks you in the nose.
Now if that is not enough to be considered dirty what is? The patting on the head that turns into loud pounding is very disturbing when all you have to do is wash your hair. Dry scalp may be the cause as well however you can fix that too with oil or dandruff shampoo. If that doesn’t work visit your dermatologist.
Everybody’s scalp will itch that’s normal. I just hate to “hear” then look and see someone digging for days that’s just nasty. I don’t know, maybe the long metro ride is boring so what else is there to do besides read a book, listen to music or time how long someone scratches their weave.
I always wondered if they made their scalp bleed.
