As I age, it seems that my scalp is becoming more sensitive, and I am developing more allergies. I have always had problems with Jessicurl products (even the frangrance-free ones) and Aveda, but now I can't use Devacurl, Re:coil
, or most Ouidad products. My hairline and everywhere my hair touches just breaks out horribly. Considering that my hair is past my collarbone when curly, this is a big problem.
For the Devacurl products and re:coil
the problem is the chamomile extract (I'm allergic to ragweed and they are related). The same is true for Ouidad's CC gel, which has been a consistent favorite of mine. There is also a preservative in several Ouidad products (the CQ line and the Boost line), as well as in re:coil
that makes my skin break out. I can still use the Balancing Rinse and DT, which is a relief.
This has really put me in a bind for wearing my hair curly. I need a gel and a moisturizing shampoo (sulfates and some cones don't bother me) that won't cause breakouts. My hair is fine 2b/3a. I need a gel with some hold, but I HATE crunch. The re:coil
/angell combo worked great, as does the Ouidad CC, except for my breakout problem.
As for shampoo the Ouidad CQ worked fine except for the breakouts, so something similar would be great.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
