    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Oooh, I like that! I'm planning on experimenting throughout the week and I will definitely give that a try!

The shampoo I use now is a tea tree shampoo that I got from Trader Joe's and that it turns out is not sulfate free. I also use DevaCurl One Condition (which works well) and DevaCurl Light Defining Gel (which I have to use a LOT of for it to have any effect on my thick/coarse 3A hair).

    I've liked just about every "no-poo"* that I've tried, with the exception of DevaCurl's, which doesn't clean my scalp enough and therefore makes my dry scalp issues flare up. I've found some great cheap ones at Walgreens -- I believe they have their own line of curly products and they sell a relatively cheap argan oil shampoo that comes in a blue bottle**, that I like. (Side note: because of the aforementioned scalp concerns, I'm in the market for a sulfate-free tea tree shampoo or something else scalp-cleansing like that. Preferably one that's reasonably priced.)

    My personal favorite product is Shea Moisture's curl-specific leave-in "style milk", which I will return to once I've used up the DevaCurl Light Defining Gel. I also really like their shampoo, which makes my hair incredibly soft -- have not tried their conditioner though. All of those products also smell really coconutty and nice.

    **Edit: Was just reminded that the name of that argan oil shampoo brand is Renpure

    Oh awesome! I'm definitely going to look into some of these. I just needed a good starting place. Thank you very much!

    So, I've suspected for awhile that my seborrheic dermatitis was made worse when I switched to sulfate-free/generally milder shampooes a few years ago. I've now had it confirmed by a dermatologist that could be the case. Apparently I'm allergic to some of the fairly normal yeast that lives on skin, and thrives in oily places. I have a really oily scalp, and sulfate-free shampoo leaves more of that oil behind. Which is GREAT for my curls. So, I am now at a loss. Do I take care of my scalp, or my hair? Is there some way I can do both? My current shampoo seems to have caused an even worse flair up. So as much as I hate wasting things, I may just toss it and switch to this stuff. Still sulfate free, and not too pricey.

    I really have liked the professional Sebastian Penetraitt strengthening and repair shampoo that I have been using. It's been great for my curly hair, the seborrheic dermatitis is much better and I don't even need condition anymore. I just comb through my hair in the shower to get rid of loose hair, suds, etc. It isn't sulphate free, but I find I don't need much at all. It's also colour safe.

    Try asking @Lexicon. She doesn't have curly hair, but she does seem to know everything.

    All the money and time you'll spend looking after your hair will be wasted since you'll see it swirl down the drain along with your lovely curls...

    Please take care of your scalp, it's more important since untreated SD leads to hair loss, and it's pretty significant, you will notice the difference. It seems your hair only needs taming on the bottom, so why not put an oil on the ends and the dermatologist-approved shampoo/lotion on the scalp and the rest?

    Have you used 2% ketoconazole shampoo? I didn't particularly like the smell, but it certainly relieved the itchiness from the flair-ups.
