Itchy scalp

Recommended Posts

My scalp has recently started itching and my hair stylist said I had some dandruff, but she said that dandruff shampoos are really bad for hair. Is that true? If so, then what should I use? Thanks ladies!

Depends... I've seen it work great sometimes, other times... nothing. I've heard that rinsing Listerine through your hair helps. I haven't tried this personally.... but I've heard a few people have and it actually did work. Posted Image

Sometimes it could be dandruff or seborratic dermatitis(I had this)..had to see my doctor and he recommended Nizoral OTC and was prescribed a shampoo called Steiprox which is really gentle. I always thought dandruff shampoos were harsher on hair-Head and Shoulders etc, but I think that they have become better over the years. A another good shampoo is Neutrogena T-Gel, the clear stuff (not the coal-tar version) and it is gentle as well.

I have used the Listerine method before and it seemed to help. I used the original one (the yellow one) and using a cotton ball, I would saturate it and part my hair and aplly some of it. It stung a bit but it was bearable. I actually do this everytime I color my hair.

Tea tree oil can work wonders. It soothes, disenfects, deep cleans, and relieves itch. Just apply it straight to the scalp with your fingers, massage it in, wait 30 minutes (or leave it overnight) then shampoo. You could also just add some of the oil to your favorite shampoo. I'm a fan of tea tree! The scent is strong and takes some getting used to tho.

 

A book I have called Beauty 911, suggests dissolving 15 aspirin in a regular sized bottle of shampoo. Aspirin contains salicylic acid which can help slough off the flakes. I haven't tried this method myself but it sounds worth a shot, since I love how the aspirin mask exfoliates my skin.

 

A new product I am wanting to try is Neutrogena Triple Moisture for dry scalp. They have a shampoo and conditioner with the active ingredient pyrithione zinc which is the #1 dandruff fighting ingredient. They are designed to be very moisturizing, nurturing, and gentle for the hair. I plan on trying these soon, I'll let you know how they work!

Where do you get tea tree oil?

I've actually heard about the aspirin in shampoo thing. I might make a separate bottle of it so if it messes with my shampoo, I won't ruin all my expensive shampoo!

Apple Cider Vinegar! It works really well and you actually end up not having to use it that often after the first few times. Just soak your hair in it for a few hours and shampoo and condition per usual. Your bathroom might smell like a Greek salad but your scalp will feel much better!

I have had this problem for years and I have tried so many products you wouldn't even know! What I have ultimately found are a few useful tricks:

 

*Wash your hair every other day instead of every day (it dries your scalp out)

*When rinsing your shampoo out of your hair, use a medium toothed comb (it helps separate strands of hair to really get all of the shampoo out of your hair)

*Blow dry your hair, never sleep on wet hair! (bacteria and fungus can grow in your hair if you do this!)

 

the most important thing is to not leave any shampoo residue in your hair! It irritates your scalp, causing it to itch!

 

I use head and shoulders shampoo and it works fine on my hair.

 

hope this helps!

 

Cheers

    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  My Advent calendar has been nice, but my week was unlucky. First there was the broken water heater, then my brother had a flat tire, my father had a flat tire, and my brother had a mishap where he hit the mailbox at my work with his car when he came to pick me up  - I am so ashamed. My work is slow so they cut everybody's hours. The paychecks are going to be low, It's just for the holidays, they said. But who knows. This all happened in one week.  I don't know if I will be able to pay off my credit card by the end of the year as I wanted, and if I will be able to do the January goal I had planned. At least I finished my Christmas shopping and mailing for friends and family! I found it difficult. This weekend I need to clean and make a Plan B.
