I'm back from my short vacation! Good visit, lots of snow, but I had a run-in with a nasty shampoo. I managed to run off and forget to bring my Jason's shampoo and conditioner. So, I used what was available, which was Pantene. I felt the shampoo sting as soon as it hit my head, but being stupid and stubborn, I went ahead and washed and then slapped conditioner on top of it. A couple hours later, I felt the welts on my scalp and around my hairline.
I just used the Pantene once and here I am four days later with welts and infected pimply things all over my head. I just want to cry. There is a trail of destruction going from the back of my head, down my neck and halfway down my back. Back in the old days, I used to use Pantene regularly. I had spots and pimples all over my neck and back, but the dermatologist told me it was just regular acne. It went away when I started using Jason's a few months ago. All those years I thought I just had crappy skin. Aaaagh!
Pretty certain the culprits for my burns and irritation are the MCI and MIT common in most shampoos and body washes. If I can finally heal from this, I swear I will never use any product with these ingredients ever again!
