What is "scritching" your scalp?
When I scritch, I gently scratch my scalp with my fingernails before I brush at night. Sometimes bits of scalp release (gross), sometimes I find little blemishes, sometimes I find sore hair follicles maybe because I pulled my ponytail too tight? Maybe I missed brushing the area?
I don't do it long, I use both hands and scritch from my crown to the outer edges like I'm drawing lines like a knit cap, does that make sense? I only do it at night and it tells me where to brush or massage more, and where to add aloe vera gel to fix dry spots.
I must also say that my brushed are generally pretty clean until close to wash time.
