  • Damndruff is just dry skin on your scalp. We control it by using as a hair conditioner skin lotion - lubriderm has tons that have worked for us, but if it's excessively oily feeling don't use that one. We don't use hair conditioners because they more make hair, we've found, more soft and bouncy but not addressed the dry skin scalp. Also, neutrogena shampoo without tar we use as shampoos. After YEARS YEARS of fighting this condition and trying all sorts of shampoos and hair conditioners, the skin lotion as scalp conditioner and neutrogena shampoos without tar help us. Just give it a try, you'll love it!!

  • My husband has trouble with it esp. in the winter. He likes good old Head and Shoulders. If it gets realllly bad he uses Selsun Blue.

  • Use ADVANCE TECHNIQUES 2-in-1 Anti-Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner from Avon. It works well and cost half the price of any of the good dandruff shampoos you'd find at the drug store. You can get it at code fsany for free shipping! GL!
