I am currently using Burt's Bees Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet Shampoo and More Moisture Raspberry and Brazil Nut Conditioner. I turned to burts to find sulfate/paraben free product. I have 2b hair, not overly pourous, short and average thickness. It is color treated, but not overly so.

The shampoo is weird to me. When I put it in my hair it just totally seizes up. There is no slickness at all, I can't explain it, it's like my hair goes from soft to tough mass as soon as the Shampoo hits it. The same for the conditioner, it doesn't move around at all and my scalp is becoming irritated. Also I shed BADLY when I use these too.

Is this a protein sensitivity? I admit I am at a loss to figure out just what exactly my hair doesn't like about this product or am I off base..is this how sulfate and paraben free products feel in your hair?
