Dry Scalp

Hi,

What can I use for dry scalp? I''ve tried all different shampoos on the market, but still have this dry scalp. My hair will be freshly washed, but there will always be flakes once its blown out. Please help.

Hi Judy

It may be more than just a dry scalp, and may even be related to eczema or another scalp condition. If normal moisturising shampoos and conditioners did not prove effective I'd suggest trying a shampoo containing coal tar (eg Denorex) or an anti fungal like NizShampoo may me a good place to start. Otherwise you'd have to speak to your GP regarding a steroidal scalp application.
