My scalp get dry in the back of my head.

Does anyone knows why is that and what can I use to take care of the dryness? I already try the shampoos at the drug store and they don't seem to help.

Thanks in advance!!

  • Do you wear a lot of ponytails? I like t/gel by neutragena.

  • Have you tried Tgel? Also you may want to try and switch to an all natural organic shampoo. they don't have all the wax and excess chemicals that others have. It could help with the moisture issue.

    I have Psoriasis on my scalp and use the tgel, 1-3 times a week(you should be fine with 1 per week but can do up to 3) and leave it on for 10 mins so that it really gets into the scalp. Then rinse and condition.

  • It could be. I tend to have a sore and dry scalp when I am wearing pontytails more than normal. I tgel is wonderful. You use it twice a week and let it sit on your scalp for at least 2 minutes. It doesn't smell the greatest, but it does work :)

  • I just read the comment above mine. My bottle says differently than hers...maybe a different strength. Just read the directions so you know the exact.
