: Hi I have dry skin and hair. Well, I started seeing a change when my skin began to take on this dry look. So I began to wonder whether it was something I was using because I had a very bad dandruff problem at that time. I had went to the dermatologist about my dandruff and she prescribed some tar shampoo. She told me to shampoo with it seven days a week but to decrease it by one day every week until I'm down to using it once a week. So I did that and I noticed that my skin started drying out and so too my hair. My hair became thick and coarse and my skin became rough, cracked and dry looking. So I began to worry. I went to several dermatologist and they didn't to seem to see anything wrong with my skin and hair. They told me that I was just getting older and that my skin and hair was going to take on that effect. My dermatologist told me that my body is probably secreting less oil now and that this the cause for that effect. I don't believe these dermatologists because I still have a terrible problem with dandruff and I don't think that has to be a problem no matter what age a person is. Can you help me out.

::Try this for hair-->Apply warm (not hot) olive oil to hair & scalp, cover hair with warm towel or plastic cap for 3-5 min., rinse hair with luke warm water, towel dry. Experiment to find out the right amount of oil for your hair type; too much oil will make hair limp.
