Affordable Hair Products for Colored Locs & Treating Scalp Eczema


Quite a few of my staple hair products have been either discontinued or I found a much better alternative for my scalp and hair.  The Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Color Protect line has been discontinued (insert crying face) so I ventured over to Herbal Essences, the maker of most of my shampoos and conditioners.  I have to say, I'm disappointed that the Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Shampoo and Conditioner did not make me or my hair happy.  The shampoo dried out my hair and made the surface of my locs / dreadlocks rough.

Overtime I've learned that sulfates rough up the cuticle of my hair.  I don't use dandruff shampoos for the same reason.  I stopped using Selsun Blue Itchy Dry Scalp Shampoo because it became too drying for my hair; it made my scalp feel amazing but it stripped moisture from my hair strands.  Instead, I use Shea Moisture African Black Soap Body Wash in it's place.  I shared my experiences using the body wash to treat scalp eczema in the following posts.




Currently, I'm still searching for a color preserving conditioner; I honestly just miss my Vidal Sassoon products!  (crying big tears)  The newest shampoo I'm trying for my hair strands (not my scalp) is Hask Coconut Milk & Organic Honey Curl Care Shampoo.  The brand caught my attention because all of their products are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, alcohol and artificial colors.  So far my hair feels much better after one use and has fully recovered from using the Herbal Essences Color Me Happy Shampoo that my hair didn't like.  Listed below are all the products I use right now, minus the discontinued products mentioned above.
