I was suffering from itchy scalp sores for nearly a year. They kept getting worse. I tried Lavender and it calmed the sores down for a few days, but they'd come back. I added Lavender Mint Shampoo. They'd get better, but would always come back.

So for 1.5 months I would wet my hair and work the shampoo into my scalp, before taking a shower. I would let the shampoo soak for anywhere from 1/2 hours to 1 1/2 hours, adding a little water every 15 minutes or so to keep a good lather.

The sores disappeared and haven't come back in nearly 3 months now. No itching, no sores. I haven't done anything to my scalp since then and all is looking good - I still use the shampoo to wash my hair, but just a quick shampoo and out of the shower.
