I don't know if here is the best place to ask this one but here goes...

I have played around with shampoos (I have very, very dry hair). The latest one is lovely for my hair (Garnier Fructus) but I am getting a rash on my neck and because the rash is new and I haven't been using the shampoo for long, I assume I am allergic to it. Have tried expensive hair dresser ones like Nak and the same thing - allergic rash on my neck.

Is there a shampoo good for people with very dry hair and sensitive skin?

A friend told me recently the ingredient she is sensitive too is cocomide. It is in a lot of shampoos.
So we found a few without that.
We are currently using moo goo and it is great.

Alchemy shampoos and conditioners are good.  Their range is freed fo the things that usually make one's hair and scalp react, but they also have one specially for sensitive scalps.  Can find it at health shops, Priceline and several chemists.

I'll add my vote for MooGoo as well.
