Default dandruff - what to use???

I color my hair, and my hairdresser wants me to use shampoo without sulfites, to prevent fading My doctor has recommended natural olive-oil based shampoo for dandruff. My hair is combination A and B, and I want to use products that enhance my curls. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks -

Many curlies have found that by cutting out sulfate shampoo their dandruff and itchy scalp improve, so your hairdresser's recommendation is a good one for your scalp as well as your color. You may want to give CG a try.

I had the Keratin Complex treatment by Coppola done a couple months ago, of which requires using no sulfate shampoos. I had to find a sulfate-free dandruff shampoo for my hair, and I came across a product called Jason's Tea Tree Scalp Normalizing Shampoo. I bought it from here http://www.drugstore.com/products/pr...97&catid=10349
and I can say it works pretty well, you can even check out all the positive reviews. Leaves my hair clean, and plus it's all natural, has no sulfates, and says it's safe for color-treated hair. Hope this helps

Any product with Vitamin E should do it.

Add some Tea Tree oil or Neem to your conditioner (or put it directly on your scalp) and massage your scalp, then rinse it out.
Nappy is not an 'N' word.

i love that new Loreal Ever Pure Sulfate Free line of shampoos and conditioners.. stick to the moisturizing one though. Wasnt too impressed with the smoothing and the volume one tangled my sisters curly hair. LOVE love the moisturizing one though, and the conditioner is great as a leave in, not too heavy or sticky. The scent is minty but idk if its actual oils or just fragrance.. i thought about adding some tea tree to my conditioner maybe that will help w. your dandruff, try it its great!

This thread is really old!!

I'll add my recommendation though - glycerine.

Based in the UK. 2-something (2b?) hair. Very porous, fine and brittle/fragile

Hair loves: Drip drying, glycerine, shea butter, oils
Hair hates: Plopping, any kind of gel, most conditioners (scalp issues).
