  • mine was sooo bad it was affecting daily life. i wanted to try selsen blue shampoo but it was expensive so i tried a few other things and nothing worked and the itch became intolerable. i bought the generic equate version of selsen blue and after the 2nd use the itch was completely GONE and zero flakes. i got mad at myself for not trying it sooner.

  • if my head gets really dry and itchy i cover it with olive oil, then blow dry it. it also works as an amazing hot oil treatment.

  • Garnier Fructis for dandruff. I don't actually have dandruff, but this helps a lot. Also smells pretty good, too :)

  • Flax seed oil or olive oil... it works wonders for your hair... also, try another shampoo or rinsing with vinegar to make sure you got all residues out... then conditioning....

  • Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Oil Shampoo or any organic shampoo with ecuplytus in it. And the woman at the salon told me a cheap way to do it is to rub olive oil into your scalp, let it sit for a couple hours and then wash it out with baking powder, which gets rid of the olive oil.
