View Full Version : Figuring out a good deep treatment to do together with BF

May 13th, 2014, 10:29 AM
Long story short my bf told me a while ago that he would like to try doing a deep treatment on his hair.
He is almost clueless when it comes to hair care and asked me a lot about it,so I'm now a bit of a teacher :D We agreed on doing a hair treatment together when we see each other again,which will be in around two weeks time.

Since I know he is really is attached to his hair,I would be really sad if he was unhappy with the result.Then again,with the almost-benign-neglect routine he has,I think the right dt would really show on his hair and satisfy him.

A bit of info about his hair:
He has fine/medium,loose curls,probably gets weighed down easily (but I'm not sure). He had issues with ends sticking together after using conditioner.Didn't use any conditioner until recently (he bought it himself,so no I didn't force him to).He knows I use honey,eggs,coconut oil,various rinses and lots of conditioner so he probably expects to do a DT containing these things.
He has scalp issues (psoriasis and possibly SD) I don't want to aggravate.

I thought about just doing a simple oiling and scalp massage with coconut oil.Would this be okay to use on his scalp?Is there a way to avoid crunchy ends some report (note the above that he had sticky ends from conditioner) ? Any other suggestions?

Thank you all in advance and please excuse my english :flower:

My boyfriend has psoriasis on his scalp too, and we do weekly treatments together. All I do is put a very generous amount of olive of coconut oil into some conditioner (usually just suave) and I spend time massaging his scalp with it. Then I wrap it, and do mine. Then we sit down and watch a movie or a show we like together. before we get in the shower I use a fine tooth comb to scritch his scalp to really get the scaling up. It keeps his head flake free for most of the week. Then we shower together. :blossom:

Have fun!

Thank you Nadine ! It looks like scalp oiling might even work well for his issues... I just wanted to be sure.I know mixing the oil with conditioner will make it easier to rinse,but he knows I didn't have good results with conditioner on scalp,so that will make him suspicious xD We'll just use less.

Some report increased shedding when using oils on scalp, it is totally normal and ok just thought you might want to warn him in advance.:)

Is it in such amount that the shedding is visible -in other words,loss of thickness? Or just more hair in the shower? I doubt he really notices the latter,but he is balding slightly.
