February 14th, 2011, 03:36 PM
Thinking og shampoos , treatments, oils , brushes etc and for what reasons.....

February 14th, 2011, 03:52 PM
Shampoos? None. It makes my psoriasis flare up badly.

Conditioner includes Suave and Garnier Frustis Triple nutrition, I use the suave most of the time now and the garnier once a week in a deep treatment.

I use olive oil and coconut oil, not only for my hair but for my scalp as well. the EVOO is for when the coconut oil just isn't doing enough. The oils on my scalp calm my psoriasis and moisturize my hair, as well as causing my curls to clump nearly frizz-less when I CO wash it out.

That, and my wooden comb, are pretty much all I use for my hair in terms of "products".

What is EVVO? and dont you find your hair get very heavy when you have the oil in your scalp too?

I have psoriasis too but only very little in my scalp but got it inside my ears just to torture me and then you have it inside my tighs and going very intimate...
I abselutely hate it and i keep having to go to hospital, none of the creams and stuff i get work ....

A smooth wide tooth comb
Shampoo bar
Olive oil

These are the bare necessities

I don't have a "got to have" shampoo, but for conditioner I need the cone free Boots Essentials one and Aussie Luscious Long 3MM.
I can take or leave my commercial treatments, but need my castor and coconut oils. Even SMTs aren't essential.
I only use a Tangle Teezer to detangle.

Why? Because after years of trial and error this is the best combination I've hit upon for my hair. :D

Joico chelating shampoo for occasional deep cleansing. (the water quality where I live is problematic, I do think this helps)

For regular use:
Shampoo that's strong enough to cleanse my oily scalp

Conditioner for my length

Creme Rinse for detangling

In recent years I've been using George Michael brand products, but I have also used and liked Biolage's selection of products, and wouldn't really have any objection to going back to something from that line if I had to.

I got some camellia oil this winter, but got distracted with other haircare experiments and forgot to use it. Guess this is as good a time as any to go back to it.

Everything else if a nice addition, but I need the things listed above :p

1. Olive and/or Sunflower oil (extra virgin or just regular pure). Lately also coconut oil.
2. White vinegar.
3. Honey.
4. Simplest cone-free conditioner for COing, detangling and leaving in. I've tried three brands already and they all worked equally fine.

I use these:
-sulfate-free shampoo
-clarifying shampoo
-cone free conditioner (GF Triple Nutrition)

I cone filled conditioner for detangling. Garnier Frucis Damage Repair conditioner does the job well. That, a wide toothed comb and a hair scrunchy is all I need.

In order of importance:

-Garnier Fructise Tripple Nutrition Conditioner
- Inecto Coconnut Conditioner

My shampoo and conditioner (Goldwell)
My oil (Argan)
My wide tooth comb

February 15th, 2011, 02:13 AM
The most basic:

- Cone free conditioner (for CO washing)
- Extra vierge coconut oil (as a leave-in, detangler and deep treatment)
- Seamless plastic wide tooth comb (for detangling)
- Shower cap (for CO and deep treatments)

Very useful:

- Clarifying shampoo (to remove CO/mineral build-up)
- Honey (for SMT)
- Aloe vera gel (for SMT)
- Apple cider vinegar (for rinses)
- Wool hat/beanie (added heat for deep treatments)

And there's some other stuff I use sometimes (but easy could do without) beer for rinses, other carrier oils and EO's.

February 15th, 2011, 02:41 AM
My "must have" are:
- My shampoo and hair mask (cone & SLS free)
- My wood comb
- A hairstick (at least one hairstick to hold my updoes)
- A soft scrunchee (at least one scrunchee so that I can do a braid for sleep)

My "very useful" are:
- Catnip rince
- Coconut oil (for oiling the ends and for the pre-wash oilings)
- A shower cap and a warm hat (for the pre-wash oilings)

And my "good to have" are:
- My BBB
- Hairtoys! :D
