I rarely use sulfates, but there are two reasons I used them today:

1. 2012 was a bad year for my family, what with Mom's cancer and all. (She's in remission right now. Yay!) So both she and I symbolically "washed away 2012" today Dec 31.

2. My seborrheic dermatitis has been so bad over the last few weeks that the no-poo / low-poos simply aren't cutting it.

I made a mix with sugar, grape seed, tea tree, and neems oils and scrubbed my head with it.

I then used Nizoral (sulfates low on the list) dandruff shampoo, along with Kerastase Nutritive shampoo and rinse-out conditioner. (Kerastase, in my opinion, not worth the exorbitant prices, but I won them through Allure mag.)

For my leave-ins, I used SheaMoisture Curl Smoothie with Kinky-Curly Curling Custard and twirled my curls ( la Tightly-Curly method).

I allowed my hair to air dry and, not only is my head itch-free right now, my shiny curls are happily bouncing around!
