    Yeah, I had looked at that thread and pondered whether to put in or not and leaned towards not. BUT...since you have the link there, people can check it out.

    I added this thread to the sticky one on TECHNIQUES, since some of the threads give tips on how to use sugar scrubs and rinses and etc for these conditions.

    Thanks! This is great! I think it would also help if there were a forum for people with allergies/sensitivies etc... :happy10: Just a suggestion!

    That would be nice. For now, just head to the "health-related hair" subforum. Start a thread.

    I didn't see anything related to removing allergens from the hair.
    If you have (or suspect you have) allergies to dust mites, dogs or cats, pollen, fungi (mold) -- things that blow around in the air and sit on surfaces, you will feel better if you at least rinse your scalp after exposure to those things! And at least during your allergy season -- unless you've got year-round allergies like I do. Allergies can cause itchy scalp systemically, but the contact with allergens in your hair and on your scalp can give cause itching etc. as well.
    It also helps to have an allergen-proof pillowcase and mattress cover and wash sheets weekly, either in very hot water (130 degrees, hotter than most of us have our water heaters set) or to add 30-50 drops of tea tree oil to the wash cycle to kill dust mites. (the scent goes away when the sheets are dry)
    Dust from roads and fields and calcium chloride used to control dust are also irritants that need to be rinsed off.
    Because some of these allergens will "stick" to your scalp/hair, sometimes a shampooing (co-wash... I'm not sure) is the only way to get them to go down the drain.

    I hope someone takes you up on it. Lots of us with allergies on here.

    The only WordPress I ever heard of is the blogging thing. :) Otherwise, I'd have helped with this.

    I have been CG for a long time now, and I have tried pretty much everything for my SB (medicated shampoos, oils, ACV rinses, exfoliating my scalp, black soap, medicated creams/steroids). I FINALLY realized key ingredients that cause my scalp to calm down, and even stop flaking. Lavender essential oil and raw manuka honey. Shea Moisture's manuka honey shampoo is the holy grail I have been looking for, and bonus-it smells great! My second pick is the Jessicurl hair cleansing cream in citrus lavender (the other scent is artificially scented).

    Natural oils is the best solution for sensitive scalp and damaged hair. Read more hereArgan Oil - Golden liquid for hair - Oil And Hair

    They are antibacterial so oils usually balances the scalps PH. Definitely worth to try!
