I've been casually looking for sulfate free shampoos so I checked out Mane n Tail, it does have sodium laurel sulfate. Anyone have suggestions for sulfate free labels? Lush?
My mom swears by it too, but Head n Shoulders is not working for my winter dry scalp. I'm currently trying Selsun Blue but it's too soon to tell. When I was a teen, I ended up with a prescription dandruff shampoo for a while, but my dermatologist told me last year that OTC shampoos were basically as good these days. I think the T-Gel will be next on the list to try...
I'm probably the rare hair type who can use a 2 in 1 shampoo, but I prefer not to - I can get away with far less conditioner to get the tangles out, though more doesn't leave my hair greasy.
Other standard advice for dry scalp is to use warm, not hot, water - hotter is more drying. I don't subscribe to that theory myself, too addicted to steaming hot showers, but it might work for some. :-)
