Glovers Mane It Stinks So GOOD!

I have a very itchy scalp and it’s not just when I wear weaves, it’s also when I wear my hair pressed or in  braids and even a ponytail. I have tried many things to nourish my scalp, but  never really found anything. I just used a rat tail comb, scratched my scalp and kept it moving. Many of my clients suffer from the same thing and one evening before bed a little light bulb came on! I need to try Glovers Mane as an itchy scalp & hair growing solution!

Back in the day Glovers Mane used to be called “Dog Mange.” As my Dad told me, while my mother was putting this funky stuff on my head,  “I know that smell that’s that Dog Mange…They used to use that on the dogs when they would get mangy and lose their hair.” I was mortified I thought that my hair would stink for ever!!! Fortunately, it didn’t and the results were amazing!

Glovers Mane is an oil that is used for everything pertaining to scalp and hair; it helps with dandruff, itchy dry scalp, hair growth and scalp nourishment. Also it comes in a floral sent that is nothing like  the fragrance that my Dad remembered, “Dog Mange!”

Here are some specs on this best kept secret (Glovers Mane):



Glovers Mane can be used for a hot oil treatment, hair and scalp oil, or you can use glovers by pouring it in and mixing it in petroleum jelly (Vaseline) using it as a hair grease. I use it as a hot oil treatment in between my weaves, before my braid up and as a scalp oil before sewing my hair on. Does it eliminate all the itching? Of course not! Weaves itch and that is just a fact! However, when I use it my hair isn’t dried out and the product aids in growth.

I’m for any and everything that stimulates hair growth,  so I’ll be posting at least once a month a product that does just that!

Till next time stay beautiful!

  • Avatar jacqueline downey says:

    About every 5-7 years all of my hair simply comes out. My scalp literally becomes inflamed. I reach back into what my grandmother uses. Vaseline and Glovers Mane. I swear by this. It took 2 weeks for me to start getting a new healthily growth. The mixture I use is half and half. I use this and the shampoo. It works. Smells awful use at night.
