I have pretty thick hair, and have tried to use different shampoos; Pyrithione Zinc, Selenium Sulfide, and a few others I cannot remember. None work. Essentially what happens is I will use them, it will actually hurt my scalp a bit, but like 15 minutes after I dry my hair, it is flaking up again.
Also, it sometimes irritates my scalp to wear a hat, especially the woal snow caps. Any ideas would really help. Thanks!
im So Glad i looked into this Forum this morning! i have been having a REALLY SUPER FLAKY SCALP for like a Month now and its driving me Crazy!!! someone on another website told me about going SHAMPOOLESS... have you ever heard of this? instead of using Shampoo to wash your hair, you just use Conditioner... i know it sounds weird... but i started doing this about 5 days ago, and it seems to be calming down... im going to keep doing this and see if it helps... I HAD NEVER HEARD OF GOING SHAMPOOLESS EVER IN MY LIFE and i thought How Weird... but its working I THINK... they also told me DO NOT EVER USE A BRUSH! ONLY COMB MY HAIR... and NEVER USE A REGULAR TERRY CLOTH SHOWER TOWEL TO DRY MY HAIR... only use whats called a MICROFIBER TOWEL... you can buy them Online, or do like me... i went to WALMART and went to the Auto Parts section and there it was! seems as tho these MicroFiber Towels soak up water like crazy and dont strip your hair like Terry Cloth towels do... maybe you should try going Shampooless for a little while and see if it works for you? they told me to just make sure to get Conditioners WITHOUT SILICONES... like V05 or SUAVE or WHITE RAIN... they are all pretty cheap too! you can get them at Walmart along with the Microfiber Towel and all for under $10...! cheap huh? try it and let me know if it works for you too! Best Of Luck To You!!!
