Flakes In Hair

Everytime I look at my hair, I notice skin flakes all over my scalp. When I try to pick them out they sometimes stick to my hair. I don't know whether this is normal or not, and I'm beginning to wonder.

Re: Flakes In Hair

Could be dandruff which would be white flakes that also may show up on your shoulders. You also could have a Dermatitise problem like very dry skin.

Is your scalp very itchy? Watch what type of shampoo you use as well, as some are very harsh and can irritate the skin. Try using a conditioner and see it that helps. Obviously if home treatments don't work you should consider seeing either your regular Dr. or a Dermotologist.

Good luck...JJ...
