Talking hello again

Haven't been on here in a few months. I started CGM in March and in May I had some serious issues with dandruff. I made sure I scrubbed well and followed the other CG guidelines like no silicones and making sure polyquats and stuff were water soluble. I even tried sulfate free shampoo, but it didn't help. So now I use a silicone free coal tar shampoo from Neutrogena once a week. The rest of the time I cowash or use sulfate free shampoo. Much much better. I wish I could be full CG, but I figure sulfates once a week are much healthier than every wash. Hope all is well with everyone on here.

Don't have an official diagnosis. Never went to a doctor. Just started using the shampoo once a week and everything cleared up.

If you get a formal diagnosis we may well be able to suggest CG friendly treatments that respect both scalp flora and hair health.

Do review your diet making it as anti inflammatory and nutrient dense as possible, most scalp complaints have an inflammatory component, you can also modify the composition and amount of sebum you produce.
