@MichiganGirl24:  have you tried any shampoos specifically for dry scalps? My hair can get pretty dry year-round, and I use Nexxus Hydralight shampoo and conditioner. It’s pricey, so I’ve been experimenting with drugstore brands. Surprisingly, the Dove line is really nice.

@MichiganGirl24:  I had the same issue with the Dove a few years ago too! They must have changed the formula, becacuse I didn’t have that problem this time around. Go figure!

@MichiganGirl24:  I love Organix Moroccan oil shampoo. it’s sulfate-free and I barely need to use any conditioner afterwards.  it feels like an expensive shampoo but it’s not.

I don’t have the same issues as you, but I’m guessing that if you use anything with sulfates, it will dry your scalp and therefore make it itchy.

@MichiganGirl24:  In the winter- (actually year-round), the best I think do my hair/scalp is switch it up.  I rarely shampoo with the same bottle twice in a row.  I hve fine hair, so I can’t be conditioning all the time- but I can use moisturizing shampoos.  But not everyday.

 

Have you ever tried Dr. Bronner’s?  I can’t use it everyday- but I use the liquid kind (they have bars, too, which I keep in my shower, but generally use for body– and I don’t dilute.  I wash my hair with that once or twice a week.  Over all, it’s great for hair and scalp.

@MichiganGirl24:  I have really fine hair and I just picked up some John Frieda volumizing shampoo and conditioner last week, I love it! I also do moroccan oil treatments as well as hot olive oil treatments, you may want to try that.

I have the same problem. I use Shea Moisture Curl and Shine shampoo. It’s sulfate free but still gets my hair clean (I do need to clarify with a sulfate shampoo every once in a while though). http://www.amazon.com/Shea-Moisture-ORGANIC-Coconut-Hibicus/dp/B0038TXGL0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387290889&sr=8-1&keywords=shea+moisture+curl+and+shine+shampoo Using lukewarm water to wash my scalp also helps.

I can also wash my hair with egg yolks and olive oil if I feel like doing the work, and that makes my hair super shiny and helps with my scalp problems. It’s two eggs yolks (make sure to get as much of the whites as possible out, or they might cook in your hair if the water is too hot) and two tablespoons of olive oil in a glass of water, spread over the scalp and let sit under a shower cap for as long as you can stand (I do 30 min to an hour usually). Then rinse off by massaging a (preferably silicone-free) conditioner into your scalp and rinsing it out thoroughly. I use Tresemme Naturals Aloe Vera and Avocado Moisturizing Conditioner. I don’t need to use shampoo at all when I use this method. HTH!

I have very long, thick, wavy hair and what helped me out was when I stopped washing my hair every day. At first it was gross but then my body adjusted to it and now I only have to wash my hair 2-3x a week, unless I get a really flea ridden shunk sprayed dog, then I’m washing it lol. I also switch up my shampoos regualarly. Right now in my shower I have the Suave Professionals Almond + Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner along with the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner and a handy dandy bottle of Head and Shoulders. I also use the coconut oil to help fight the drying from the wind.
