I have med length straight hair. Although my hair is healthy and I never get split ends.. I am an occasional suffer of dandruff.
I have tried many products.
Even the anti fungal Nizoral to no avail.
It gets bad sometimes. Even my eye brow and sideburns get it.. Its very annoying..
My question was if anyone knew of anything that worked for them?
Probably you may need to visit a good and qualified daermatoelogist...
Age may have a part to play in this.
Do you have back problems?
Why? Well, i have a pinched nerve in the 6th vertebrae and it turns out it is responsible for psoriasis problem in the scalp.
Your problem may be alltogether different, but it's just to tell you that it can be the result of a complex problem.
I have used head and shoulders shampoo for this reason, but I'm not certain if it really works. Have you ever tried it?
Head and Shoulders is the way to go. Get the citrus splash and youll smell like a dream. It's a sure snow stopper.
yeah i would suggest head and shoulders. they have this new thing now where you take a strip test and see if you have dandruff?? well I guess its no brainer if you see the flakes on your shirt.lol go consult a dermatologist if it is that bad.
First I would just like to say that I sympathize with your affliction. My head itches just reading your post. I think you best bet is to go see a pro.
I find using a good medicated anti-dandruff shampoo does the trick. Head and Shoulders is good for me because it usually clears up after the first wash - but not always.
I choose a medicated anti-dandruff shampoo with menthol because you can actually feel the shampoo working.
The important thing to remember is to apply the shampoo and actively massage it into the scalp for 5 minutes, don't just slap it on, rub it for a second and leave it.
You must be sure the shampoo must be massaged INTO the scalp not just left to sit on the scalp for five minutes.
Once I have finished I rinse with warm water, repeat the apllication and massage and then leave it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing a final time with warm CLEAN water.
This extra effort should make a difference. Plus when you spend so long massaging the shamppo in you actually need to use less shampoo.
So choose a good one like Head and Shoulders (T-Gel i supposed to be good too if you can get it but I have never tried it personally).
I also know people who use malt vinegar to massage into their scalp and swear by it.
my barber gave me a formula recently to solve my dandruff problem especially in winters.
He advised me to apply hair oil---any will do---at night and rub it deeply into the scalp and sleep and shampoo next morning.
Another quick method is to apply plenty of hair oil ten minutes before shampooing the hair.
And it works.
Another thing that works is aloe. Just apply and leave. It makes your hair look spike but if your not going out it really helps your skin anywhere. Also tea tree oil but its really expensive.
Thanks for the information and hope it can also help other people with the same problems[/url]
