Hair tangled after shampooing and conditioning

my scalp as been dry and flaky for the last month and i read that tea tree oil helps with this.

i went to the local store and picked up Jason Natural's Tea Tree Scalp Normalizing Shampoo. I washed and conditioned with the same haircare line and when I rinsed my hair my hair felt super dry even when wet.

It's supposed to be gentle and contain no sulfates in it, but why in the world would this make my hair feel like straw? I do regularly color my hair because I have this white hair patch that I hate and have had since I was a teenager. I know my scalp gets dry as a result usually right after I get colored, but it goes away in a few days.

I have 2c/3a type hair.
Some of the sulfate free shampoos can still be really harsh on your hair. I had a similar experience with Aubrey Organics. Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue products helped when I first cut out the silicones. I still low poo, rather than cowash. I would suggest doing a DT to moisturize your hair. The MGA conditioner is good.

The other thing you can do is just out a few drops of tea tree oil in your conditioner. It is good for your scalp. I also like doing an ACV rinse when my scalp gets itchy. I prefer to use Braggs Organic ACV.
Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
I massage some Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree scalp oil on my scalp the day after coloring, before bed, and let it soak in over night and wash it out in the AM. It has also helped my son with his dry scalp. I rub it on his scalp an hour before his shower.
It may also help to skip washing for as long as possible (4 days to a week!) before coloring, the natural oils will help protect your scalp.
I have found my scalp is much more sensitive to dye since going CG, not sure why, it has never been sensitive before. But my scalp stopping hurting/itching after the HBTT.

You might want to rub some regular oil on your scalp. I normally have a terribly dry, itchy scalp, and I tried some Apricot Kernel Oil on my scalp, and it was like my miracle cure. It relieved my itchies and helped control some of the dryness. You could try it with a different oil, too, if you wanted. HTH!
