I have really bad dandruff(my scalp is basically covered in a layer of dead skin). I have tried numerous different dandruff shampoos to no avail.....even expensive prescription ones. My dandruff seems to get even worse when I am pregnant, which I am right now. Anyone know of anything else that I can try? I hate having such bad dandruff, I can't run my fingers through my hair without flakes falling, it is so embarrassing!

Have you ever had a Dermatologist diagnose it as dandruff? It's possible that it may be Psoriasis or something more invasive than just dandruff. If it's diagnosed as dandruff, Try to avoid hash soaps, creams and greasy ointments..... As a treatment you can try Tea Tree, flax seed, primrose, or salmon oils to relieve the itching and inflammation and promote healthier scalp. Taking kelp, BVitamins,such as B6, B12 and Vitamin E for healthy skin and hair. Selenium, an antioxidant, may be taken to control drying of the scalp. Also, you can mix 8 Tbsp pure organic peanut oil withthe juice of half a lemon, blend well, apply to scalp and allow to work for 10 minutes, then wash with a mild shampoo and condition as usual, mix 2 ozs. vinegar with a glass of water pour this mixture over the conditioner and then rinse with warm water.
