No I don't think I am over-shedding at this point. I think the thinning out happened when I was still on birth control. My scalp is dry and itchy and sometimes there are flakes, but dandruff shampoos didn't make any difference. Some days my scalp feels fine and other days it feels worse. It definitely feels dry, though.
If it is due to build-up should I use a clarifying shampoo before I transition to cowashing? Or should I just transition the regular way by using a sulfate shampoo, then cowashing and then only using clarifying shampoos rarely? I am also not sure if it will be too much for my hair to use a sulfate shampoo, then cowash, and then add the moisturizing conditioner all in one wash. Should I spread them out to make the transition better for my hair?
