I would love to know if anyone has a shampoo that works for them. I have tried so many shampoos it's just crazy and not one of them has worked for me. I spend $10 to $20 bucks on a product and always end up disappointed :( I just want to wash my hair is that so wrong?!?!?

There are a couple of shampoos that I can safely use:

Shikai Everyday Shampoo (make sure it is their "everyday" shampoo...others have corn)
Nature's Gate Biotin Shampoo

I have also given away hundreds of dollars worth of shampoo because of reactions. When I find one that works I tend to stock up in case they change the ingredients on me.

Some people with other allergies as well as corn (i.e. coconut which is often used in shampoos) have resorted to washing their hair with baking soda and rinsing with apple cider vinegar...sigh...

I can use Neutrogena Unscented soap on my face with no problems...I use it every day.

Fantastic! Are you in Canada? My health food store here has not been able to bring the Shikai Everyday Shampoo in (from the U.S.) lately, but I've also been having great success with the Nature's Gate Biotin shampoo.

Keep your fingers crossed that they don't change any ingredients!

I used one particular brand of shampoo for over 15 years and thought I had an endless supply of safe shampoo. The company suddenly went out of business and I was in panic mode. Luckily I had stocked up on it and had enough until I found something else.

I use a Fantastic Sams Shampoo. It works for me, but I can't guarentee that it doesn't contain Corn.

I do have problems with a lot of different shampoos. At least the Fantastic Sams Shampoo doesn't burn or make my scalp itch.
