Just Annoyed...

Omg, I'm sooo frustrated with my hair right now! Well, actually more frustrated with what my hormones are doing to my hair. I hate how greasy it gets when it's close to that "time of the month". Seriously, I just clarified it yesterday, and it already feels like it needs it again! :angry4:

Does anyone else have issues like this?

    Hi - I don't have that issue, but you might want to consider using a mild sulfate shampoo at this time. I like Deva Lo Poo and No Poo but when my hair gets very greasy I use a mild drugstore shampoo with sulfate.

    I know if you are totally cg it may seem like going over to the dark side :toothy7:but you could try it once and see how you feel about it.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    Curlypearl, it does feel like I'm converting to the dark side, lol. I finally couldn't stand it anymore and used a clarifying sulfate shampoo the other day, and it seems to have helped a bit.

    IAgal, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with this issue! I've been trying to tolerate it, but there's times when I'll touch my hair (especially the under-layers) and think "Ewwww!" I clarified my hair again today with a sulfate-free shampoo because I couldn't stand the greasiness anymore. At the moment, I just want my hair to behave. :(
