Have no fear! Your sebum is coming in, you feel oily... and you're well on your way, great job!! This us GREAT!!
Brush your hair. Really thoroughly. Like this. Do this every single day. For today though, follow with a nice hot shower to help melt the sebum, massage, preen, just do it. I personally have a fine toothed comb I use to help comb the sebum, scritch here and there, work it girl!!
Follow with an acid rinse if you want, I find it helps a little to cut smell, sebum, not sure, but I like it with WO. We call this AO (acid rinse wash)
Out of the shower, your hair is completely detangled, use this time to add some (essential oil) EO diluted in water, spray all over... Or... Add aloe vera gel to the scalp if needed for dryness and it's always a great deodorizer... Or just apply a few drops of EOs in your favorite oil directly to the length of the hair. Don't forget the ends!! And not too much. Brush or comb it through, it moves the debris from the scalp and from the hair on to your brush and that prevents bacteria making the scalp smelly.
Wash your brush so its clean for tomorrow.
Dry however you dry it. (Plop to get the best curls)
Ta daa! No sebum at the scalp means no smellies! The sebum has moved away from the scalp down the length of the hair, and you.... Look... Gorgeous!!!
Afraid to brush curly hair, here's why you need to.
