My hormones are still all over the place post-pregnancy, 13 weeks down the line, and my scalp has become sensitive. I have heard that Aveda, MoP and Bumble & Bumble are good. Can anyone recommend a brand please? My hair is past my shoulders, fine, but there is a lot of it. Thank you!
Eucerin shampoo.I use it when i have a severely itchy scalp coused by psoriasis patches.It has urea in which rehydrates and soothes and calms down any irritation.I used Eucerin when i had long fine blond hair and it was fine.
I'd go for something SLS free. Liz Earle has a lovely shampoo but a bit pricey. I usually use something from Holland & Barrett - they have a wide choice of SLS free ones so you can see what you fancy. Body Shop is gentle on scalp but I found it didn't leave my hair very nice. I have scalp psoriasis so have to be careful with what I use. Anything with SLS makes me very itchy.
I've got a very sensitive scalp and the only thing that's worked for me is Philip Kingsley Itchy, Flaky scalp shampoo. It is a bit pricey but lasts months. I tried lots of organic sulfate free products but for some strange reason they seemed to irritate my scalp (and hands).
