Client has had itchy scalp but no flaking.
Enjoys Dr. Brown’s Healing Water for reducing inflammation and getting results.
Recommended Grapeseed oil 1oz with 7-15 drops of Juniper, Tea Tree or Ylang Ylang EO mixed with Lavender essential oil to lightly line scalp sparingly with fingertips and massage into itchy areas.
Why Juniper EO as an alternative to Tea Tree EO? Tea tree is medicinal and herbaceous of strong scent while Juniper is floral and herbaceous, woody of a soft scent with a high note. It can be used in the hair and scalp when you are going out and about or at work and you are around others who can benefit from the positive feelings brought about by smelling the aroma. Known for promoting spirituality and encouraging self-esteem.
Why Ylang Ylang EO as an alternative to Tea Tree EO? Ylang Ylang is that sensual essential oil that also happens to balance out the sebaceous glands in the scalp. Overactive glands and excess production of oils are another source of itching in the scalp although you may not see any flaking. Also known for relaxing the mind and balancing emotions. Great for managing frustration and anger. If you want the sensuality of Ylang Ylang, try it and then try the Tea Tree to see the difference. If you want strong, “get right to it” “out of the woods” type of scalp healing, Tea Tree is your oil. Otherwise, you can go lighter and still get the balance you seek with your scalp.
Always check into the qualities of the essentials you are using because some overlap in use and benefits but have different scents that may be more or less pleasing to you or others around you. Request a consult with Ahava Felicidad that includes essential oil introduction and you can also request custom blends. If you want to smell something right away, just drop by your local Whole Foods Market.
I highly recommend Young Living Essential Oils – top tier at Studio PURE and Simplers middle tier – both of high quality- top tier is food grade pure and organic sourced throughout the U.S. and internationally. Middle tier is organic – pure sourced in California by a small team of herbalists.
Consult with me on the use of different essentials together and their benefits for your body and the senses of others. You can have it all. Looking good, smelling good and feeling good and helping others around you do the same or at least have a more positive response in your presence.
Essential oils and you- perfect together.

Another natural beauty who knows how to maintain and style her hair through regimes learned through hair healing. Knew a lot coming in and continues to grow! She gets the twist outs that keep people WOWing and turning heads. Other clients have come in and shown me her hair and marvel at how great it looks after a twist out from a technique set and styles she manages and creates at home with just the right amount of product.
She then shares with me what she used and how she mixed and made to get her re-creations, creations and happy hair.
She also gives great hair tips for getting sand out of the hair when going to the beach – if anyone is traveling with the kids get out those nozzles this mom recommends the vacuum cleaner nozzle! How innovative!
Check back often because we have more client updates to share.

Hair healing and styling experiences at Studio PURE by Ahava Felicidad. Services range from individual and family consults for regimes, introduction to essential oils and natural carrier oils, product recommendations, sugar scrub for the scalp and hydrating hair techniques with process and structured water, events and more.
The style you see here is what I call a technique set. Naturals have varying needs which include for some wanting to do twist outs at home or get styles set that can transition through a time period. This set – created with an updo – was designed to hold baby’s breath across the crown and the locs were bantu knotted just right so the perfect curls would tendril down.
I do it all! Cleanse, deep and walk out with moisture, style setting for events, everyday, workouts, and style setting for those who want to leave ready for a night on the town, photoshoot, work and play.

CoWash & Style Tips
by Ahava Felicidad on Thursday September 5, 2013
With this fall’s crisp weather upon us, naturalistas everywhere are seeking classic styles that keep them warm and their kinks, coils, ringlets and spirals looking healthy.
Here are some tips that will help kinky curlies achieve the right conditions for classic trendy co-wash and go styling just right for the weather
Co-Wash & Style Basics
Always detangle from ends to root before condition washing with a natural detangling spray or a water bottle used with a leave-in conditioner to release the coils and make the co-wash process easier. I recommend Kinky Curly Knot Today for kinky curly or curly & wavy hair and Giovanni Leave-In Conditioner for kinky hair. Cream-based conditioners and your fingers loosen any knots before co-washing. Your spray bottle should have distilled or spring water in it. Tap water contains many contaminants that are not safe to drink and make hair hard. Hard water contains high levels of CaCO3 so you want to avoid using it for your spray bottle. Add structurally enhanced water like Dr. Brown’s Healing Water to your bottle 1-2 tsp to get maximum hydration. This helps your water to provide cellular repair directly to the hair strands which are 25% water.
Remove hair build-up without stripping the hair by using your own blend of handcrafted black soap diluted in 4-5 ounces of spring or distilled water or a cleanser like Shea Moisture’s Moisture Retention Shampoo. This is one of a few times you will see me recommend anything marked “shampoo” because this product is actually a cleanser. It is not traditional shampoo-just marked that way for consumers ease in shopping when new to natural.
Co-Wash and Style Conditioning Basics
One of the challenges with co-wash and styling hair is styling before hair dries. Using hair sugar provides a higher level of moisture for the hair and scalp and keeps the hair moist longer than regular co-washing so that styling of 20-30 minutes or more is easier and you may only need the spray bottle towards the end.
Use a Felicidad Hair Sugar or mix your own with 1 cup of sugar to ¼ or ½ cup of oil. You can use oils like avocado, olive, sunflower or even grapeseed by the tablespoon to start and work it through the scalp and hair with conditioner. Some curlies can skip the conditioner with this part.
Styling for the WOW!
Grab your Giovanni, Jane Carter or Kiss My Face mousse, section hair in 9-30 parts, two strand twist and Bantu knot then pump the mousse on each knot. Pat to saturate, air dry or hood dryer for 15 minutes on low or medium. Twist out in the morning. You can try this with Shea Moisture’s Yucca and Aloe Hair Thickening Cream (kinky and kinky curly) Curl Prep’s Sweet Buttah (kinky curly and curly wavy, wavy straight) or even Curls Curly Q Custard (kinky, kinky curly and curly). Remember to start with a tablespoon and add with fingertips bit by bit then add more as you go along as needed. Less is more.
The above look on The Natural Science Beauty of Ahava Felicidad Hair and Body was created with 2 strand flat twists and Andalou styling cream. Hair was set one day by Ahava Felicidad and twisted out the next 1-2 days by The Natural Science Beauty. Maintain with mini pineapples or pincurls.
