There are several types of scalp issues, but dandruff and product buildup can be easily confused for one another since both can make you feel itchy. Dandruff is actually a form of eczema where dead skin cells are shed more often than normal. Product buildup is layers of residue on your scalp from using too many products. This can be common to chicas with curly hair since we don’t shampoo as often.

Davines has introduced two new styling products to their advanced For Wizards line, a Styling and Finishing Gel and N 12 Cement Powder (davines.com).

Hey, if you can’t get a grip on life, you can at least get a grip on your hair.

They felt dry, looked dry and were frizzy—not good.
