#1: Dry Scalp
I thought what I had was dandruff, but no dandruff shampoos are helping. I use a generic version of prescription Nizoral, and it seemed to help it first, but now it's just making it worse because it dries my scalp out more. I guessed that I had dry scalp from the beginning since I have dry skin all over. I can deal with a dry scalp, but I also have light flaking. It's not as bad as it was in my teens, but it's still flaking. what can I do other than drink more water? I've heard that moisturizing the scalp is actually bad because the product lays on the scalp and makes things worse. I use a gentle sulfate shampoo, Nature's Gate Lavendar and Aloe, but is there something else I can do, maybe with my conditioning? I've tried Neutrogena's Dry Scalp shampoo, but it didn't help. Anyone else have this problem?
