    Yep, and feels super dry... I did a CO wash between that too-clean wash and now, but it only helped marginally.

    I tried to massage, pull and preen between washes this week. Yesterday and this morning, my hair felt very greasy close to the scalp, and I feel like I was able to bring it down to the ends of my hair to a certain degree. In the end, I applied some oil to where the greasiness stopped, and that felt great! After washing my hair today, my hair definitely feels less dry than the last couple of washes, even though I didn't use a moisture mask this time. I'll continue doing this!

    Awesome!!! I'm so glad it worked out for you
    I've been going super light on the shampoo, watering it down a little bit in my hand before applying,
    And only applying it to my scalp. Then loading up on conditioner. My hair seems to like it.
    I always scritch and preen before my washes, too, and am still massaging daily.

    I started daily-ish head massages and (straight up) scratching (with my nails, uh I know) and before washes I used to do oil massages. Felt so good! And my baby hairs just sprung up! I'd really need to get proper head massager, something plastic or wooden with bumbs, to get myself out of the bad habit of scratching half of my scalp's skin off
    from all of the colors of the rainbow to virgin hair to henna head

    I massage my scalp a little every day and every time I'm in the shower. I use "kneading" motions and circular motions all over the scalp -- I have noticed improvement in growth rates. I used to get a half inch per month, but now I get just under an inch. I think other things may also be contributing (diet, etc) but the massaging can only help.

    Plus, it just feels so darn good.
