Ouidad=itchy scalp and thinning hair?

HoneybunsHoneybuns Registered Users Posts: 3
Hi,

I joined the site because I am desperate! I had beautiful thick hair that was full and healthy. I started using the Ouidad products and I absolutely loved them but since week one I felt the itchiness in my scalp. I thought I would just stick to it since my curls had never looked so beautiful and defined. Now my hair has thinned out so much it makes me want to cry and my scalp still itches. I am not sure if I'm maybe allergic to the silicones in it or what the problems is but has anyone gone through this experience? or can anyone recommend another product that will have the same effects on the curls but not the itchiness and thinning?

I would greatly appreciate you help... 8)

    Hi there and welcome to NaturallyCurly! We're so glad to have you.

    I've moved your thread; I think you might get more help here.

    I would guess you're definitely allergic to something in those products.

    Many people like the DevaCurl products or the Curl Junkie products. Also, a lot of curlies love Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions.

    I can relate. I have tried the Ouidad products with no success. I have also tried Curl Junkie and I should have stopped the moment I started getting itchy. I think there are some ingredients which you may be allergic too or perhaps, its causing too much build up and your scalp is not breathing.

    I found that after I started using Curl Junkie, I developed a really bad case of dandruff. I had to go to a dermatologist. I stopped those products.
    I've lost alot of hair and as of now I no longer have the itchiness I had.

    By the way, for me. I think the culprit is the aloe vera
    3b/C with nicer curls on the bottom!
    Hair: naturally very dry and VERY porous
    hair seems to be moody.
    Does not seem to like oils
    Does not like protein or too much?
    Does not like rich products

    So, I ask myself. What does it like? That is the question, and I'm on a mission.

    I’ve been using DevaCurl for a while now and thought I was crazy because I’ve lost a lot of hair. Apparently some of the ingredients clog the hair follicles causing the thinning issues. I’m going to try the Wellnesse line to see if I notice any changes.
