FOUND: a fix for a dry scalp!

Friday, March 18, 2011

A few months back, we reviewed Diane Lai’s Rejuvenate moisturizer, and I thought I’d give a quick update on it! I’ve been using Rejuvenate more as a cure-all than a regular ‘ol face moisturizer recently, and it’s been absolutely amazing. Because it’s so lightweight, I can do a lot more with it than I can with, say, German Nivea (which I adore, but it’s just so darn thick!)

Of course, I’m still not a fan of the strong lavender scent, but I am loving it for my hair and scalp. Like the rest of my skin, my scalp is quite dry, and it’s uncomfortable a good 98% of the time. I was convinced for the longest time that I had dandruff, but in reality – I just have phenomenally dry skin.

(The difference: dandruff is caused by a fungus, and produces large, sticky flakes. Instead, my scalp often feels tight, and I get tiny dry bits, like when you have a dry patch on your face.)

For the past little while, I’ve been massaging Rejuvenate into my scalp before going to bed once or twice a week (two pumps of product usually does the trick) and showering it out as normal in the morning. The result? No more dry bits, and my scalp – for once! – doesn’t feel at all tight and uncomfortable.

Right now, I’m feeling like Rejuvenate is my own little godsend, so (of course,) I had to share it with all of you! It’s the only product that’s helped my scalp so far, and because it’s ‘cone-free and lightweight, it doesn’t irritate my scalp or make it break out (TMI, but yes, really silicone-y things have made it do that in the past). It’s also making a great leave-in hair lotion during the day (I work in a half-pump to a pump while my hair’s still pretty damp), so I’m a happy camper.

For all of you lovely ladies that have gone off silicones with me, this is a must-have!

  1. That is definitely not TMI. My scalp breaks out, too, so that's incredibly helpful info.

  2. It's nice to know I'm not alone! :) Going off silicones has made SUCH an improvement for my scalp – it took a good 3-4 months for my scalp to finish "adjusting," (which drove me crazy), but I can literally count on one hand the number of blemishes I've had on my scalp since then. So, so worth it ^^

  3. I need this! I have exactly the same problems! Thanks so much!

    Ha ha, at least you found a new use for that moisturizer! I, personally, still wouldn't be able to use that. I just cannot handle lavender. It's like the smell of citrus, except citrus is ten billion times worse (long story. Involves the many, many EEGs and EKGs I endured as a child). I recently switched back to my HG shampoo and conditioner team (thank God I did), but I forgot how much the shampoo reeks of orange!!!!! I gagged when I opened the shampoo in the shampoo a few days ago. I'm still trying to adjust to it. At least my hair is back to it's hair model shininess and not leaving giant lumps in the bathroom drain (thank God, thank God, thank GOD).

  5. Aww, you're welcome! I hope it works just as well for you :) x

  6. [...] a clean ingredients list, and perform well.  I’ve also seen these used as hand creams and scalp treatments (I tried the latter,and it worked marvelously), so there’s more than one use for them.  If [...]
