I was once told by my Grandma I think that ur scalp itches when ur hair is growing.  I neva start itching until my new growth starts coming in and I wash twice weekly so I know my scalp is clean.  I think ur scalp does itch thought while ur hair is pushing up out of it.  But that's just my opinion and the only thing I could think of that seems so true to me.

I think it has to do with mental state as well. Anxiety. Sometimes I go months and months without a relaxer, averaging inches in growth. Only when I start thinking about getting the relaxer does it start to itch. I know I am not supposed to scratch because it will burn. You know what they say about temptation of the things you know you are not supposed to have or do. Anyways, after all those months it starts itching only when I'm about to get a relaxer. When I shorten my stretch period by a few months, the same thing happens when I choose a relaxer time.

My hair doesn't really itch when it is just growing. I'm not so sure that growth is the reason for the itch. (Not in my case anyhow) Hair is always growing and my hair and body would be itching all the time as I too am a mammal, (like all other humans). We have an entire body covered with tiny hairs which are  growing, dying, and falling out all the time. Your hair is growing even as you get the relaxer and every single day afterward up until your touch up. I just don't know.

Edit - This might be a reason. Just as when people trying to detoxify from drug usage have withdrawal symptoms, the itch means you need another hit of them chemicals in your system.  That is some deadly stuff in those relaxers.
