My scalp and hair took a beating this winter. I suffered from scalp dermatitis and an allergic reaction to hair dye. My hairline suffered the most because it is finer than the rest of my hair.

I used Lamisil. The active ingredient is Terbinafine solution. It helped a lot! I am now using Dragon's Blood soap and Black Jamaican Castor Oil to keep the dermatitis from returning and to help my hair grow back.

Someone posted this link on the thin/thinning hair board: Treatment of Seborrheic Dermatitis - May 1, 2000 - American Family Physician
That's where I learned about Lamisil.

I have seborrheic dermatitis (affects scalp/hairline, eyebrows, around my nose, behind my ears, with flareups at times and other times that it's just regular non-flaky skin)

If it's bad, I'd suggest going to the dermatologist. You can try the ketoconazole shampoo Nizoral which you can get at a drug store--it can be rather drying, so trying to use it on your scalp rather than your hair is best. Right now I use Jason's Natural Dandruff Control, which I got online and works quite well for me. Also, after some research online, I found that application of Coconut Oil is supposed to help--I did that for a while, but stopped, so I can't tell you from my experience how well that actually worked.

I have been suffering with this BAD. To the point my hair was breaking off something terrible. So when thinking back before I went "natural conscience" I decided to go back to apply Sulfur 8 to the part of my scalp that was killing me. What did first was wash my scalp with ACV, deep condition and then applied the Sulfar 8. I have not had to itch in almost three weeks.

Default thank you for this thread

I struggle with this as well. Mine occurs throughout but hairline and behind the ears especially. Tonight while traveling I decided to massage tea tree and jojoba into my scalp. Ill see how it works. Ive been using a da˝druff shampoo that is drying my hair. I'm going back to modified cg and going to try scalp treatments.

Default update

so the tea tree and jojoba really helped for today. I will also say that the aloe vera gel from Trader Joe's set my hair quite nicely. I think I'll continue treating my scalp this way as apart of my weekly steaming regimen with my hair conditioner(which i have slacked on for months). In general what i tried worked so i am happy.

the key to fixing my scalp problems was more frequent washing, not cowashing. also, tea tree products like trader joe's or giovanni were wonderful.
