Thanks so much for posting this article Laura Lee! Scalp health has always really puzzled me. Hair I'm starting to get, but skin? No way! lol Anyways, I noticed I had less dandruff--oh wait dry scalp--after switching to CG, and I bet it was because I wasn't drying out my scalp with all those sulfates. Did this happen to anyone else?
I still have some dry scalp issues now though. It's not bad, but right now if I scratch my scalp I have a little white flake on my fingernail. Does anyone know if that's normal? I'm going to try to not cowash as much, but I seem to think that made it worse in the past. My scalp would feel itchy and such. I always though massaging my scalp helped get rid of buildup, old skin, and dirt. Now that I think about it, maybe the conditioner is the culprit. Hmmm.... help?
P.S. There is a girl who sits next to me in band that has severe dry scalp. It's rather noticeable since she has black hair. I think she relaxes her hair, but I really wouldn't know by sight. I think I will direct her to this site, as I can't think of a polite way to broach the subject otherwise.
