I want to oil my scalp under my sew in, but I have on a net and when I do do this my weave gets all oily and nasty looking!!  If I wash and rinse for a friggin hour, the oil seems to lock onto the net or braids and when I wrap my weave at night it just kind of saturates the weave and then i get a mess!!! 

Does anyone have suggestions on how to oil hair under a net weave without the weave getting greasy?

I know this sounds crazy sweet... but I don't.
I've noticed that my hair grows quicker when I don't add all the oils to my scalp and such. What I do however, is maintain my scalp by using clear solutions and astringents such as: squirting  seabreeze :water : leave in conditioner mixed in a needle nose applicator, or using Optium Oil Therapy Scalp treatment or something like that.

Sweetcake....I hope someone gives you the answer....that is why I had to take my install down...I HATE GREASY HAIR, but I want to have hair, so it was either a fabulous weave or have damaged hair...
 
someone suggested giving the moisturizer time to "soak" into your real hair before you do much with the weave...like wait 30 minutes, but that didn't work for me....
 
Good Luck though!

It depends on your hair type and scalp type. You honestly may not need to oil your scalp, instead you may need to just make sure its well conditioned along with your hair before you braid.


If you do have a really dry scalp I suggest using a light oil, nothing greasy, which can clog your roots up and actually make your hair grow slower. And use an applicator like this:



or this:


That has a small enough tip to fit between the net. I think you can find them at CVS or rite aid or walgreens or walmart or something lmao. Im trying to start paying more attention to oils, I plan to do some research on the oils indian women use to grow their hair. Anyway, use the syringe to suck up the oil and then put little tiny drops on your scalp under the netting. Dont use much at all, because it will soak your weave, and that is not hot.

What are you using to oil your scalp??
 
I use a nozzle applicator bottle for installs with OR without nets.  I think the key is the type of oil and how heavy you apply.  I have decreased my Mega-Tek/teatree/essential oil combo to 2 days a week since I am wearing straight hair.  Clarifying will remove product buildup (I use a clarify poo and sometimes Apple Cider Vinegar).  My hair isn't "oily" at the moment but I can tell the oils from my mix and wrapping is on the hair(good to prevent dryness). I expect to poo in the next 2-3 days.

I had the same problem and here's what I did:
 
1.  I found Talia Waajid medicated conditioning spray  and I put it in a color applicator bottle. It mosturizes, and soothes when my scalp starts itching (it has a tingly peppermint feel to it), and it smells really good. Here's a picture of the bottle.
 
Medicated%20Bodifier%208oz
 
 
2. I  also use an applicator bottle for my Megatek mix (I saturate my natural hair with it before I do my installs, I use this on my edges about once a week, and on my scalp about once every 3 weeks b/c it itches like crazy.)
 
Hope that helps.

the color applicator bottle works wonders for curly hair, but for straight hair it may give u the greasy, because the oil comes out quickly.

This is SUCH a great idea. I have a bunch of syringes from the drugstore. They will give you a few for free.

Hey - I don't know where you live, or if you have a straight or wavy install, but I have found that cowashing my weave daily works wonders for keeping my hair and scalp moisturized.  I use my OCT daily and it allows me to put a new application on my scalp daily.  HTH.
