I'm going through flakey scalp with hair loss, which just seems to get worse with stress and time..... I'm also looking for solutions. .....You need to find out if you're deficient in nutrients.... Have you been eating well? If you're deficient in zinc, you may experience hair loss, and itchy scalp. YOu could try 60 mg zinc a day in divided doses, but that's a lot of zinc, so take some copper also.. How is your iron? What about your thyroid? Are you taking enough B vitamins? what about a good multi? What's your ferritin level? I read somewhere that a girl's hair started growing in when she started taking 75 mg zinc/day..... sounds really good to me! {REMOVED}

My hair grew back, but you have to keep using the shampoo. Even if you think its mostly gone, use it once a week. Make sure you shampoo your hair everyday with some type of shampoo, don't let the oil bulid up on scalp.
My seborrheic got really bad and I had these patches of crusty yellow build up and some turned into sores. Nizoral shampoo works good, but it really dries out the hair and can cause breakage. I started using the New Head & Shoulders intensive solutions for severe dandruff prevention and seborrheic dermatitis (Dark blue bottle) and it works really good. I am about 90% free of scalp build up and flakes (2 week use) And my hair doesn’t seem as dried out, but I also use a good conditioner just in case.
I am also taking a multivitamin and biotin everyday.
