Dry sculp and Dandruff!

Recommended Posts

Hello!
It's unfortunate that my post comes with such lame news but I desperately need advice.

My sculp seems to be very dry that despite properly washing it and changing my shampoo to a one specifically used to help dry sculp, it still has those white flecks the very next day. I washed my hair on Friday and now on Monday, it's already so itchy and just flat.

Not to mention my hair doesn't keep the smell of the shampoo. It stinks right away the minute I sweat a little bit and I've been told I have stinky sculp. How do I cure this? D:

I just want my dandruff to go away and my hair to actually smell nice after a wash T.T

I am not a professional but I really feel for you so here goes:

I googled "why does my scalp smell?" and found

  1.  healthcare-online.org/Why-Does-My-Scalp-Smell
  2.  medhelp.org/posts/Dermatology/Head-Smells-Bad/show/715039
  3.  top10homeremedies.com/home-remedies/home-remedies-smelly-hair

What I use as my scalp tends to get sweaty when I work in the garden. For 5 weeks I use  Australian  Tea Tree Organic deep cleansing shampoo & conditioner and on the 6th week I use Pro Naturals, a hair repair system.  I do however use the argan oil leave in treatment after EVERY shampoo and this is only applied to the very tips and only half the length of my hair. I find that the argan oil does not make my hair oily but it does protect it from heat damage, stops frizz and static. 

 

You will have to work out what is best for your own hair but rest assured you are not the only one with your problem. I hope it helps you just a little.

@@ohelizabeth I normally have to wash my hair daily - I know it's not the best thing to do for your hair but if I do 48 hours without washing my hair my scalp becomes itchy and greasy.

 

Does your hair get greasy quickly?

Hi..

There is no perpetual cure for dandruff, however it is certainly controllable when taking the best possible measures

So no problem neem can help you regards dandruff and additionally numerous other hair issues like scalp skin inflammation, irritated scalp, and hair fall productively, You have to do one thing Heat up a modest bunch of neem leaves in some water.

Use this decoction as a hair flush a few times each week.

@ohelizabeth I have a great news for you. I have the same problem with dandruff and I know how you are feeling. I tried something that did work for me and I hope it does for you, too. First I need to tell you that my hair is thick & coarse and not oily. Before I wash my hair I apply on my scalp olive oil and I massage my scalp, too. I let it on an hour or so and than I wash my hair as I would normally do. I didn't change my shampoo or anything. That is all I did and I'm impress. Although I need to mention that you need to apply this "mask" every time before you wash your hair, at least a month. 

PS: I am not sure if it works with fine & oily hair.

I think of this problem you should apply the such kind of shampoo which is suggested by most of the dermatologist in the world.

 

  • L’Occitane Anti Dandruff Shampoo for Sensitive Scalp
  • Vosene Original Medicated Shampoo
  • T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo
  • Head&Shoulders Apple Fresh Anti dandruff Shampoo

Dandruff is annoying! But you have to fight it. The fact is that you cannot completely get rid of dandruff and its effects. Reducing the effects is possible. First, try to moisten you dry scalp and stay away from doing things that suck the moisture content of your scalp. For instance, using a blow dryer completely sucks the moisture from my hair, leaving it dry and frizzy. Now that you already have a dry scalp problem, you can stay away from using blow dryers. 

 

Oil your scalp regularly to keep it flecks-free and moisture-intact. Make sure, you stay away from thick oils that worsen your dandruff condition. Use mild and gentle oils for your scalp. Baby oils, argon oil and the like would do. When you choose shampoos, never buy ones with sulphate and paraben content. It's not good for your already affected scalp. 

 

Also, try homemade packs like yogurt and egg white pack; harmless and highly effective. Apple cider vinegar is also good to treat your affected scalp. Lemon also fights against the dandruff virus. And, proper diet is a must. 

 

Here are few articles that might be helpful in dealing with dry scalp:

Well what I usually do to my customers is that I take some coconout oil and I mix it with a lemon juice(50:50) then I apply it to the scalp and make a few minutes of massage and I wash their hair after atleast 20 minutes.

Sounds very relaxing, do you think it will work with jojoba oil instead of coconut oil? My hubby sometimes suffers an itchy scalp and he doesn't like the smell of coconut. TIA

You can also use fractionated coconut oil which doesn't have the coconut smell. I'm not a fan of coconut smell so I like to use fractionated coconut oil instead.

I gave up cereal and that seemed to do the trick. I have sebborheic dermatitis. It got so bad that a stylist at Supercuts reduced me to tears with lots of unhelpful suggestions about my "disgusting" condition.  Believe me when giant scales start falling from your scalp the first thing you do is google home remedies.  I know them all and they are only mildly useful. For years I was using different types of prescription and over the counter shampoos.  Then I tried the Special K challenge and started losing hair instead of weight.  A light bulb went off and I stopped eating cereal all together and generally avoid bread products. Now I barely touch the Nutrogena t-gel under my sink and haven't seen a dermatologist in years.  This isn't to say this will help everyone, but it might be worth a shot.

yogurt is the best choice for dandruff and olive oil is the best choice for dryness

Yogurt along with egg white is my fave. This combo gives definite results for me. All you need to do is, apply this mixture weekly once and it'll just kick off those irritating dry flakes. But this pack, how much ever great, doesn't work wonders for people with extreme dandruff issues. Getting rid of dandruff is not all that easy, which is why you need tons and tons of patience. If you want to try shampoos to treat dandruff, please prefer ones that have either zinc or ketoconazole in it. Besides, one can also use oils like castor oil, baby oil, neem oil, tea tree oil .....these oils will keep your scalp moist and avoid dryness which is the root of those dandruffy flakes.

Try vinegar from apples! You know this type of vinegar ,not from wine!

It helped me a lot for the itciness.

Wash your hair after with regular shampoo.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
