Shampoo Allergy & Their Causes. Common Chemicals Causing Shampoo Allergies.
I believe that most shampoos you see in the grocery store are a chemical cocktail.
At that point the allergic reactions to shampoo can manifest themselves in the most unwanted of ways. Itchy dry scalp, dandruff, skin rashes and in some rare cases, even hair loss. How do you know what to look for and what to avoid?
Fragrances and perfumes can be found in virtually all of the mainstream shampoos. This chemical ingredient that can cause itchy rashes. Check the label for the ingredients. If you have an itchy scalp the fragrance is probably to blame. Even the "fragrance free" brands may not actually be "fragrance free".
A chemical cocktail? Take a look at these ingridients. They might just be listed on the shampoo and conditioners you're using.

Honestly, you don't even need to wash your hair every day. Unless you're getting really dirty in construction or are somehow profusely sweating each and everyday, there's simply no need to use shampoo 6 - 7 days per week.
Doing this will strip your hair of its natural good oils and leave it vulnerable to thinning and brittleness. Check your local health food store or talk to a herbalist who deals with this particular allergy. They can be a wealth of information and may recommend some good hair care products that are safe, natural, and effective.
Switching to a more natural shampoo with better ingredients may be the missing link in your allergy symptoms. If that doesn't work you'll need to contact your doctor or dermatologist. They can run a battery of tests to determine the best course of action to take.
