hello again

Haven't been on here in a few months. I started CGM in March and in May I had some serious issues with dandruff. I made sure I scrubbed well and followed the other CG guidelines like no silicones and making sure polyquats and stuff were water soluble. I even tried sulfate free shampoo, but it didn't help. So now I use a silicone free coal tar shampoo from Neutrogena once a week. The rest of the time I cowash or use sulfate free shampoo. Much much better. I wish I could be full CG, but I figure sulfates once a week are much healthier than every wash. Hope all is well with everyone on here.:toothy7:
2b/2c, Med density, Med Porosity, Fine/Med width, Med length, layers start below ears. Just my shot in the dark for my hair properties. Growing out bleached highlights Fall 2012, growing out dyed hair March 2013. Makes for a confusing mix of properties. Learning how different processes affect hair properties. Using lot of drugstore products right now. Determining what's right for my hair in my climate. Pittsburgh has a little bit of everything weather wise. Modified CGM since March 2013.

    Don't have an official diagnosis. Never went to a doctor. Just started using the shampoo once a week and everything cleared up.

    If you get a formal diagnosis we may well be able to suggest CG friendly treatments that respect both scalp flora and hair health.

    Do review your diet making it as anti inflammatory and nutrient dense as possible, most scalp complaints have an inflammatory component, you can also modify the composition and amount of sebum you produce.
