Ive been CG'ing for maybe 2 weeks now...never ever had any problems with my scalp before (always used a sulfate shampoo every other day). Why is it my scalp is now itchy, and at the moment, feels like its sunburned?
For the first week I used the low-poo on my scalp a few times and only used the Deva one c on the length. Then this week Ive just been using suave on my scalp----I dont think its an allergy b/c there isnt anything in the Suave Im allergic to
Should I go back to sulfate shampoos and just use the CG-safe styling products? I just dont want to create a problem with my scalp when I never had one before

Unfortunately my scalp can't handle rigid CG, so I periodically shampoo, sometimes just my scalp. You may consider decreasing the frequency you shampoo, and when you do, simply dilute the shampoo with water and concentrate on your scalp only; and cover your ends with conditioner during this process. Those squeeze bottles with the spout (that you use for hair color) are great for this. You can purchase empty ones cheaply at beauty supply stores.
edited to add: the purpose of the squeeze bottle is to directly apply your diluted shampoo mix to the scalp. I wasn't sure if that meaning came through or not...

When I initially started CG my scalp and hair loved it, but after about 3 months I had patches of very bad flaking and itchiness. It took a lot of trial and error to work out that what caused mine was leaving in most of the second dose of conditioner.
Now I rinse it out completely then use a leave in and my scalp is happy again
