Hey madmum, I haven't had that happen. Did you switch brands by chance? I have heard good things about jojoba oil, but have yet to try it. Right now I am really loving almond oil. Sorry to hear you had an allergic reaction!

Jojoba oil and Grapeseed oil are awesome for your skin!!!

One can develop an allergy to anything , especially when the skin has already been damaged . One can try switching between different oils , one can go back and forth .

Thanks for your comments all :)
Michelle It's the same brand, nurse said that my p just got sick & tired of coconut oil, probably as I soaked my scalp in it nearly every night & washed it out every morning! I used jojoba oil last night, my what a change, stop the itches instantly YEAH!! plus you don't wash it out in the am, as long as you don't put too much on (a little goes a long way)

I also got some castor oil, but I'll use that next week, I'll change oils weekly so scalp doesn't moan again!!

Sweet madmum!! That's great it worked so quickly for you! Very nice :) Good idea to rotate oils!!

Childs farm baby moisturiser is good but end up smelling like grapefruit and less itchies
