My scalp disagreed

Well.....It looks like full cg is just not in the cards for me. I'm fine with it, but my scalp rebelled and I was shedding a ton again. The only thing that ever stops that from occuring is my wen, so I went back to it. The amodimethicone doesn't nuild up on me but it does relax my wurl some. I'll sacrifice wurl for a happy scalp and less shedding, but I wish I could find a way to have both.

    Can't you just do moderate curly girl? Conditioner washing never worked for me.

    Yeah, I've pretty much always been modified but occasionally try total cg, but my scalp reacts to so many things. Wen is the only thing anymore I really DON'T react to and it only takes once with it for my scalp to be happy again.

    My scalp didn't like full CG either. I tried it about 10 years ago when my scalp was oilier. I went in for a trim and my stylist told me I had patches of cradle cap!! This was after 4 months of full CG. I probably wasn't doing it right, but I'd rather not scrub my scalp too hard.
    I have to use my Nioxin once every 7 to 10 days to reset back to zero and then a good sulfate free poo every other to every 3 days.
    I don't have issues with build-ip since I use the Nioxin every week or so.
    I use the scalp Therapy and treatment every shampoo.
    My hair did like full CG, though, so I try to do scalp only or CWC not shampooing the ends as much.
    I'm looking for more curl, body, volume, and shine-a miracle really.

    I can't do full CG either, for the same reasons. I've had mild seborrheic dermatitis since I was about 20, and CG made it soooo much worse. I've just found I have to use sulfate-free low-poos instead of co-washes.

    I too must shampoo, esp if using products. Without any products I could pull off a CO wash, but that wouldn't be as pretty. I love the SM fruit fusion as a weightless shampoo that cleans without stripping.... it's gentle. The irony is that WEN irritated my scalp, built up even with shampoo, and made my hair fall out.

    Shampoos: SM Fruit Fusion (mostly), Avalon lemon (to clarify). Occasional aloe vera and glycerin to wash.

    Wen did that to me, too! And my mom. And my sister....
