A little while ago I discovered I suffer from chronic scalp eczema, which very painful, itchy and look shorrible. If I’m having a really bag flare up (as I am at the moment) I can’t wear any black clothes or they will be full of scales in a matter of hours after washing my hair.
I’ve tried a different million shampoos and when I saw this sulfate-free shampoo, promising to relief my irritated scalp in 8 days, at Boots, I didn’t hesitate to give it a go.
It’s formulated with Tea Tree and Lemon to protect against further irritation and Salicylic Acid to help reduce flaking. I wasn’t expecting it to miraculously cure me from my eczema. I’ve tried dozens of treatments, including prescription ones and nothing really helps in the long term and I’ve made my peace with it and am just trying to manage the pain and itchiness and this being sulfate-free I’ve never thought it would make it worst, but it did! Oh it did.
I’ve tested it for a couple of weeks and decided not to use it anymore. I was feeling some short term relief after a prescription cortisone treatment and about a week after introducing this bad boy to my hair I’m experiencing one of the worst flare-ups I’ve ever had and not even my usual fail-safe treatments are working.
If you don’t have any scalp conditions and are just looking for an affordable sulfate-free shampoo you ight want to give this a go. It is a good cleanser, it doesn’t dry out the hair and leaves feeling super soft.
Have you tried this shampoo yet? What are your thoughts about it? Do you have any tips on how to deal with scalp eczema? If so, please leave them below as I am getting desperate.
