thank you geek chic!

here is the info:

I washed my hair and scalp very carefully in no silicone sulfate aplenty safeway brand dandruff shampoo (seems like my dandruff problem is going away with CG!).

I tried CG years ago and failed. My hair felt greasy and nasty and my scalp was itchy. Looking back, I was using an amo…cone thinking it was a water soluble silicone and also not scrubbing well enough with co-wash.

Leave in:
(so far, this product is a keeper. my hair is lighter and bouncier than it has been in a long while).. but still dry =(

Headress Thickening Leave-In Volumizer, with exclusive time-released technology, helps build thicker, fuller hair.
Ingredients
Water (Aqua, Eau), Panthenol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Cetrimonium Bromide, Stearalkonium Chloride, PEG-75 Lanolin, Fragrance (Parfum), DMDM Hydantoin, Alcohol Denat., Disodium EDTA, Limonene, Linalool, Amyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Propylene Glycol, Phytantriol, Polyglyceryl-3 Distearate, Polysorbate 60, Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Extract, Stearic Acid, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Palmitic Acid, Myristic Acid, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Verbena Officinalis Leaf Extract, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Flour Lipids, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide, Ceramide 3, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Tocopheryl Acetate


the co-wash
the Suave coconut. I was very careful to scrub my scalp well. A week and in half into co-washing, my scalp began to feel a bit greasy..

so I thought to try a sulfate free -poo.
I found this disappointing and very drying (more so than the sulfate dandruff shampoo I was using before!). The squeaky clean squeak I was not wanting.
