My shampoo is drying out my canopy!

MHassonMHasson Posts: 46Registered Users
What the french toast! Soooo, I just got some sulfate free shampoo (Giovanni Tea Tree Tingle) and it's making my canopy dry! What the heck! I heard shampoo's strip the hair of it's natural oils . . .but DAMN!

I have reallyyyyy dry scalp, so I have to shampoo to get all that stuff out my hair. I only shampoo once a week, and I co-wash probably once between washes. I guess Im gonna have to start co-washing more and shampoo twice a month instead of 4! Big-o sighhhh

I am STILL in my transitioning process of growing out my heat damaged hair, so seeing stuff like this isn't really making me feel too good. The goods and bads of ""Trial and error".

Im thinking tho...could it also be that i might put too much shampoo or something on the top of my head?? ...bcuz only my hair at the top squeaks after I rinse it out....and its also the area where most of my heat damage is.

Any ideas ladies??

    TTT is a low poo (with Oleifin Sulfonate (Coconut Derived) and Cocamidopropyl Betaine), and perhaps that's too stripping for your hair in combination.

    One way to combat drying effect of shampoo (besides getting a new one), would be to make sure your rinse out is with a ultra rich conditioner and follow with a good LI conditioner to keep the hair hydrated.

    i suggest getting a new one. i actually love that shampoo but only use it as a clarifier once a month (at the most) because it does leave me with that squeaky clean feeling.

    Have you tried mixing a squirt of shampoo with a palmful of conditioner to make a moisturizing cleanser? I do this and I do not get that stripped feeling of the hair.

    I rotate between these two AWESOME cleansing conditioning products:
    1) Curl Junkie Daily Fix Cleansing Conditioner
    2) Wen Cleansing Conditioner- right now I have Sweet Almond

    I don't need to use alot of either one if I quickly put my hair under the water after applying it-- this distributes it well. My hair feels clean and very conditioned. I always use conditioner afterward. I will NOT be without these cleansing conditioners. If I had to pick just one I'd pick Curl Junkie. It is AWESOME.

    Also, I will NOT be without Blended Beauty Soy Cream Shampoo. I can do a shampoo then repeat it using that and it's still very moisturized and doesn't dry it out at ALL. I love that stuff for when I want more 'cleansing' that Daily Fix or Wen. I HIGHLY suggest it.

    My crown/canopy is my driest most unruly part too. The only thing that really calms that section of hair down is Hairveda Moist Condition 24-7 (just reordered the gallon salon size). It REALLY moisturizes it and takes away the frizz there. Most of the time I only put it on that section of hair.

    Try applying the shampoo directly to your scalp via a color applicator bottle. This enable you to clean your scalp without stripping your hair. It works very well for me.
