No offense taken but I always wonder WHY someone comes out of the woodwork to try to say something I didn't. You just quoted me, so why couldn't you notice that I just said the routine doesn't work for SOME people because of wrong product choice??? Others may have a problem like you, however, I even saw curlies with oily scalps succeed with just CO when they chose one with essential oils that help that condition, they help stabilize their overactive glands. And frankly, unless people are into aromatherapy or decide to do research on essential oils, I don't think it's a subject of "common" knowledge to everyone.
