Default Dandruff?

DD has flaky scalp. Hair stylist last month said it could be shampoo build up and talked about rinsing really well since her hair is so thick. Today she was brushing her hair in the fan and all these flakes were falling off!

She uses Head & Shoulders and only washes her hair about twice a week. A friend said she uses some kind of H&S spray. I just sent her a message asking if it was this. https://www.amazon.com/Head-Shoulder...gateway&sr=8-3


Do you have any other ideas?

Someone told me that tea tree oil can help with dandruff, so I got a shampoo that had it. Mine is Organix tea tree and mint shampoo. It's fixed my dandruff and my hair is generally healthier than it was when I was using medicated shampoos.

We used BWC tea tree shampoo and it didn't help. Will look up Oganix.

This is what comes up when I type Organix. https://www.ogxbeauty.com/shop/teatree-mint/shampoo-22/

I don't know how long she used that one, still had flakes.

Default Re: Dandruff?

I've used coal tar shampoo- I think Neutrogena. It smells horrible. But I also wash my hair with regular shampoo afterward to get rid of the smell.
I also was told that I have seborrheic dermatitis, which made my scalp itchy. I got a prescription for some liquid medicine to squeeze on the area, which definitely helped.
For hair product build up, I really like an Aveda shampoo that is designed to get rid of build up. It works really well for me.

That's the one I use. I figure what works will depend on the person, but it was life changing for me.

Default Re: Dandruff?

She could try using raw apple cider vinegar as a rinse. I know that has helped many people. It not only helps the scalp be healthy but removes build up.

It can also be a symptom of allergies so if she may have accidentally eaten one of her allergens, it might go away on its own. (Unless I'm remembering incorrectly, I think your kids have allergies?)

Default Re: Dandruff?

I use Sodium laureth sulfate/sodium lauryl ether sulfate free shampoo (Palmers Coconut Shampoo, but health food shops sells many others), plus a scalp massage every single time I shampoo. I also shampoo no more than every other day, often every 3rd time. If I wash in between I use conditioner only and don't forget the scalp massage... nice abd deep using finger tips.

Also helps to determine what causes dandruff.... can be an allergy, oily scalp causing skin to stick them flake off in bigger bits, dryness which is often smaller flakes, residue is sort of stickier flakes.

Nope, no known allergies.
