Hello, I am experiencing such bad dandruff and dry scalp. I’m 12 weeks pregnant. Has anyone had this and what products did you use to improve it? Thank you

Hoping on to say I have the same. I'm 13 weeks pregnant. Terrible dandruff and dry skin in general. Hoping to get some recommendations

I had this around that time in my pregnancy, nothing really helped only massaging oil such as coconut oil, leaving then washing out did a bit. Mine went away after a couple of weeks, I also had dry skin around that time so probably linked. The joys of pregnancy!

Head and shoulders Clinical solutions shampoo is what you neeed, it's about £4.99 for the smaller bottle. Not the normal head and shoulders (that's crap).

Yup I had horrible dandruff around this point! It was during the full on lockdown stage, I was avoiding supermarkets and was impossible to get home delivery, so I ended up googling natural remedies... anyway ended up gently scrubbing my scalp with bicarbonate of soda and rinsing with apple cider vinegar (these were the two things I happened to have in the cupboards - I've heard good things about coconut oil as well). Sounds bonkers I know, but cleared it up a treat.

Thank you. It’s so bad. My scalp is so itchy so will try different solutions smile

Try the MooGoo stuff. Very natural and has transformed my head completely. But direct from them and they send lovely free testers too.

Uhh yes!!! Child’s farm shampoo is amazing!! Couldn’t recommend it anymore!

I found using kids L'Oréal shampoo worked best for me, there is something within the formula to help with cradle cap - I'm assuming this is why it works (maybe not but it definitely helped me anyway)

I second Moogoo! It's been great for my dry itchy pregnancy scalp.
