Hello ladies, I have got dandruff and i am planning to wash my hair with tea tree shampoo to get rid of the dandruff. Can you kindly guide me on what do i do with my hair loss. I have severe hair loss whenever i apply oil in my head. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
I don't know anyone who oils their hair and they don't have especially dry hair. Why not use dandruff shampoo and just put conditioner on the ends. Make sure you run your scalp gently to remove the flakes.
I do have dandruff as there are pimples on my face due to them. I am currently using tea tree shampoo to get rid of the dandruff. I shall stop applying coconut oil in my hair,and hopefully the hairloss must be much less.
do you use a conditioner after shampooing? the best thing I had for hair loss was (don't laugh) shampoo and conditioner made for horses but okayed for humans too. mega tek stuff but mane and tail is also supposed to be good
It sounds to me as if you need to start again with everything. Most people don't oil their hair. I do now and then, maybe once a week, but it's not dry in between.
Are you sure you have dandruff?
What does this mean:
"I do have dandruff as there are pimples on my face due to them." ?
I've never heard of someone having pimples due to dandruff, possibly due to oily hair...?
There are plenty of dandruff shampoos without oil, so maybe if you're sure it's dandruff use one of those (not H&S, it's horrible), then use a nice conditioner. Then look into your skincare routine and use a cleanser morning and evening.
You could take fish oil capsules, they are good for dryness.
Then you need to think more about the hairloss - I doubt oil is causing it. Maybe your diet? I had bad hairloss when I had a problem with my gall bladder, due to lack of nutrition - iron can cause it, so maybe take iron (and you'd probably need to take vit C with it) bt that needs to be a long term thing.
What 'type' of hair do you have, is there anything else that could be causing hairloss - stress, over styling?
Firstly have you been to your GP to get a full blood count and thyroid function tests done? Nothing will work if you have anaemia or a thyroid problem. Are you menopausal with androgenic alopecia ? Let your GP look at your scalp and see if there is a problem there. He can run some blood tests or suggest treatment, I have had some pleasing results with Hubner's silica. Biotin gave me spots. I also take Perfectil Skin, hair and nails supplement (3 boxes for £10 in Asda). Although they don't fully solve the problem, they do help.
Hello ladies, I have been to the dermatologist and she said that I have dandruff. She has prescribed medicines,oil and shampoo. But even after a month I still have dandruff. Is there any natural way of curing dandruff?
