I've been dealing with Dandruff for about 3 months now and have tried selsun blue, ive tried ion shampoo and ive recently tried Nizoral. I thought the nizoral worked after the second time using it but now it no longer is working. And another thing about it, the nizoral is peeling my face away its incredibly weird. It isnt bad but you can definitely tell my face is a lot more dry and flaky. I am so nervous because i start school soon and dandruff looks fucking terrible. I have brown hair so the white shows up even more. Is there anything I can do to get rid of this fucking shit?
Actually, when I put my hand on my stomach or chest and brush down you can see skin just come off of it. Is that normal? Like for skin to just come off to the touch? The same is for my face I could press on my face and you can look at my finger and just see skin. I dont think this was ever like this before. What is going on?
You use conditioner too right?
Shampoo and then leave the Conditioner on for a good while.
Try a hair conditioning mask for 10 minutes from sally beauty if you want to see what you've been missing.
ALLWAYS CONDITION AFTER SHAMPOOING. otherwise you'll destroy your hair.
im in/was in? still m in? the same boat OP
your solution selenium sulfide 2.5%
same dandruff, same dry skin on NOSE area, will peel
nothing regarding my chest or stomach though
youll need a doctors prescription
however you can buy selinium sulfide 2.5% on ebay, costs 20 something ish bucks, ships from thailand
i was skeptical, but the flakes and peeling are annoying. i ran out and am buying some
downside: after using selenium sulfide, if you stop, the stuff comes back within 3 weeks
good luck anon
buying some more**
the selenium sulfide w/ prescription is upwards of $100 per refill, ebay came in clutch for me to be honest
i believe the 2.5% is the strongest dose they have as well
as i said before, good luck
Conditioner doesn't hurt if you have dandruff, it helps, a lot
What you have doesn't sound like dandruff. I'd go to a derm and get it checked out if I were you. I've had dandruff most of my life, recently it just stopped. I just use regular shampoo now and I love it.
Do you know what happens when you instantly put aloe on severely burnt dry skin?
It flakes off to heal.
YOU HAVE TO CONDITION EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU USE SHAMPOO OR YOU'LL DAMAGE YOUR HAIR FOLICLES AND GO BALD.
Your scalp is probably shedding a damaged layer until you grow new skin on your head that is kept in an appropriate conditioned enviornment.
You shampoo, rinse twice, condition, wash body while waiting, then rinse your whole body.
Also don't take long hot showers, opt for mildly warm and wash your face with cold water and a cleanser at the very end. Dry and apply a facial moisteurizer lightly.
Oh i did not know this, should I shampoo every time? Or how can i avoid this continuing to happen? I am gonna shower here soon I was gonna just put more conditioner on it but please tell me what to do
This should be your new routine to achieve the best results. Mind you, you have to heal from the damage you've done by fucking up for years. You might not be able to repair anything you currently have on your head, but you can groom for a better future head of hair.
I just want the flakes to stop, you think this will work? Should i shampoo every time i shower? should i never condition without shampooing? Should i never shampoo without conditioning?
How frequent do you shower?
You shouldn't have to do it but once every like two days, you look dark but not black enough to probably get greasy every day. Even if you do sweat up a storm every day, you shouldn't have to shampoo and condition your head that much unless you swim for sport or sit in a sauna.
So I have this Ion shampoo and conditioner here I got from Sally's that is suppose to be good.
Or I have suave morrocon oil shampoo and conditioner
So there is potential for you to need it every day.
But start with a mild routine since your scalp needs time to adjust to having it's natural oils back. And it's ok to go for like 5 days and not wash your hair after a round shower routine. Rinse with water if you must go every day with a shower. Don't neglect your body either. All skin needs moisture. Find those man scented body washes like Irish Spring with shae butter or Dove for men, something conditioning.
If you do go to Sally's check their bulk upscale brand knock offs. $20 for a three or four months supply is the best deal they have. Yes, those liter bottles are the best. I like the minty one in the summer and the deep conditioning one for the winter.
Here's the other one in an actual liter bottle
Don't shampoo every day!!!!! I can't stress it enough! And never ever use suave, that shit is the absolute worst!!
Shampoo once every three days. At first, until your scalp heals and goes to normal, shampoo twice a day. But if you're using dandruff shampoo, you only want to use that like twice a week.
Ion is a really good brand, I used to use that. When looking for conditioners, which you absolutely should use everyday, it is what helps moisturize your scalp, make sure it doesn't have mineral oil or sulfates in it because that'll fuck you up.
Which could actually be your problem. If you're still seeing flakes after a few weeks, try a clarifying shampoo instead.
And I mean skip the whole shampoo and conditioner, do not just condition or just shampoo. And certainly don't fall for those two in one products because they are a lie.
I used to have dandruff and get greasy hair. Then I had 3 weeks off from work and decided not to wash my hair with shampoo for two weeks. At first my scalp was itching like crazy and my hair was greasy as fuck, but after that it all went away and now my hair looks much better than it did when I used shampoo and my scalp no longer itches. Just try it out, now I wash my hair with shampoo like once every two weeks.
Okay so to summarize, dont shampoo every time, try not to condition every time if i shower every day, but maybe every other day condition and shampoo? I am trying to understand this part. Especially in this phase where im trying to get it to heal
