Thanks rmc2! I don't know how to multi-quote, so I will have to quote things one at a time. I do have a sensitive scalp, so I'm really glad you mentioned that. I didn't get to Trader Joe's last night anyway, so now I can think about it. Thank you for replying so quickly!

I could get away with just using Tresemme for everything, but I think I get better results using different products.
Hi CurlyInTheFog, thanks for your quick reply also. As I said, I don't know how to multi-quote. I think I might like to pick up the TJTTT, because sometimes I feel like my hair needs a switch for washing. My hair is on the dry side...do you find it to be a strong shampoo? Also, I am prone to seborheic dermatitis (well, can't find spellcheck either...). Do you think the tea trea oil would help with that if I used it every so often? If you don't know, that's okay too.

Starznthings: Tea tree oil can be effective if used in dilute form regularly on mild seborrhoeic dermatitis (UK spelling!). You may find some of the other oils and extracts in the Trader Joe's irritating tho, the tingle is a sign of mild irritation. Also the shampoo contains olefin sulfonate which can be stripping/ irritating.

Your entire routine is relevant, aim to use super gentle products at pH 4.5 to 5.5 to respect the skin barrier/ protective acid mantle/ beneficial flora. You probably already know to cleanse regularly. Options for sulphate free shampoos include
Best Hair Loss Treatments | Hair Growth Treatment | Treatment For Hair Growth (contains ketoconazole, same as in Nizoral)
Products - Komaza Care (pH 4.5 gentle scalp friendly ingredients)
Neutrogena T/Sal Therapeutic Shampoo Ulta.com - Cosmetics, Fragrance, Salon and Beauty Gifts (salicylic acid, harsher so perhaps better for more severe SD)

Also review your diet, aim for as anti inflammatory nutrient dense as possible - over time that can make a huge difference alongside a gentle routine by altering the amount and composition of your sebum, strengthening the skin barrier, reducing systemic inflammation.

Firefox7275, There's alot of info you gave me. I think I have a book on anti inflammatory nutrient dense foods...and I do notice that stress is a huge facor in the seborrhoeic dermatitis (that's probably the US spelling also....). I had to use the Neutrogena T/Sal and Nizoral stuff a few years ago, but it hasn't been that bad since then. I didn't know about olefin sulfonate being irritating/stripping, so I need to check my ingredients on a few things. I will also look into the Komaza Care. Thanks for all you input.

I have used Trader Joe's TTT, Tresemme, VO5 vanilla mint and kiwi lime, TJ's Nourish Spa, and a couple others. I honestly prefer TJ's Nourish spa for cleansing. I don't need as much as VO5 to cleanse, and it has awesome slip, just as good if not better than Tresemme. Its cheap (2.99) and natural.

For leave ins, KCKT was waay too light and I got some frizzies when applying. Satin Roots leave in is much better in my opinion. Its actually light, but at the same time provides enough moisture for my med-thick hair.

If you have Low-Med porosity and medium thick hair, look into these products. (For comparison: have 2B hair and can use mild protein treatments once every few months, its hard to over moisturize my hair.)

You are welcome: stress is indeed a huge issue in various forms of dermatitis. Stress is pro inflammatory, affects sleep quality, increases our need for all sorts of nutrients, and often dulls the appetite or causes cravings for sugary rubbish. It's a disastrous combination.

Best self care for stress: get your 10,000 steps each and every day, more intense formal exercise three to four times a week if you are able, pretty much the same as an anti inflammatory diet especially the oily fish, also magnesium rich foods for example chia, ground flax, pumpkin seeds, and yummy cocoa powder! I do this for a living and am prone to stress/ anxiety so let me know if I can help further on that in the future.
