    So sorry for the confusion. I bet though, if I (have the courage LOL to) dig out those volume shampoo bottles from Pantene that it is the exact formula wise on the sulfate deck. I can check very amply this weekend in my Lidl store as they have quite the range there. Well hey, I will & keep you guys posted.

    Oh Garnier is notorious for it, isn't it?

    I think I found the perfect combination for my hair: Pantene Repair & Protect shampoo, followed by the conditioner in the same range. My hair is clean and moisturized without making it limp.

    I'm pretty picky when it comes to hair products and almost never repurchase anything but I'm close to finishing my 5th bottle of the Garnier conditioner with shea and avocado, which has to mean that it's a Holy Grail for me! The ingredients are great for me (no coconut anything!), my hair gets soft and it makes detangling so easy. And it's only 3€.

    Honestly, Nizoral shampoo as needed and either Suave Coconut conditioner or Strawberry conditioner seems to be my go to. Cheap, effective at giving lots of slip when I detangle in the shower, and smells great (the Suave, not the Nizoral). I barely have any flakes anymore since using the Nizoral. It's great! For a while I would get bouts of scalp redness and flaking near my hairline and that's gone away entirely with regular use about once a week or so.

    I haven't found a great regular shampoo just yet. The matching Suave Coconut seems to be very harsh.

    I recently switched to a wooden pin bamboo paddle brush from the tangle tamer and I absolutely love it! I was getting tired of having to replace the teezer/tamer every year or two due to wear and tear. We'll see how the bamboo holds up.

    For me, but I know it's not the same for all, between "bouts" of SD, I find if I wash with a harsh enough shampoo, preferably SLS, SLES, &CB and not just SLES & CB, certainly not CB alone (awful), that I can keep it all very spotless & clear and itch & painfree (those red spots can hurt).

    Maybe that will work?

    I'm not familiar with the CB abbreviation. What is that exactly?

    The easy way out of cocamidopropyl betaine. It is a very veeery gentle cleanser. If that alone is in something, it is the gentlest it often can be.
