Suave Conditioners irritating my scalp?

CurlyGrey3CurlyGrey3 Posts: 508Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I may have to switch from Suave conditioners for co-wash. I've noticed a very slight burning sensation on my scalp the last week. I've also had the recurrence of an eczema like patch on the corner of one of my eyelids. The last time I had it, the dermatologist told me to stop using the Suave body wash I had been using and it went away, but I never connected the two together until now. Maybe it's a chemical they use in both.

I'm wondering if the preservative in the Suave is the problem. I do have skin that can be sensitive to certain ingredients, but it affects me very rarely (I have to choose band-aids carefully, for example).

    Hmmmm ... now that I think about it, this might have started since I tried using the Everlasting Sunshine instead of the Coconut. I don't like the scent of the Everlasting Sunshine anyway. I'm happy for an excuse to get rid of what's left.
