Oily Scalp treatment


#1

Does anyone have a regiment that “attacks” oily scalp? I absolutely have no clue how to combat this problem but it is literally driving me crazy. The itching is insane. This problem started about a year and a half ago (why now?). What, I have more DHT now than when I was younger? As of now I’m just using Nizoral, even though I have no signs of flaking and taking some saw palmetto in hopes that it will some how stave off some of this excess DHT… but I have to admit I’m at the end of my rope. I have even tried spraying antiperspirant on my scalp if you can believe that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

my scalp gets oily as well and i shampoo it everyday.

i alternate between a regular shampoo and nizoral 2% about twice a week.

you got to leave the nizoral in for about 5 to 7 minutes to kill off all the bacteria & fungus that might be causing the scalp infection. after you wash your hair, comb it with a clean comb or you are reintroducing the bacteria/fungus back into your hair. Don’t touch or fiddle around with your hair with your handds during the day.

another thing i’ve found useful is keeping the hair short. buzz it.

if that don’t work try a new anti-fungal shaampoo like Selsun Blue or Neutragina T-gel. But nizoral 2% is supposed to be good.

if i don’t shampoo every day, i find i get this itching/burning sensation where I’m losing my hair. i think the body’s immune system is attacking the greased up hair follicle thinking its a pathogen.

I think the best idea is to wash it every day to keep your hair clean. I also wouldn’t add any hair gels or products on your hair. I also keep my hair short which seems to help. I also wash my hair with a neutral bath bar like Dove to avoid any irritation from perfumes or chemicals that are in shampoos.

PTO and tea tree oil shampoo should bring things under control.

Whats PTO? I’ve already tried concentrated tea tree oil. Right now it seems baby powder seems to be holding out a little hope. I do wash the scalp everyday with Nizoral.

i get this also, i find that when my scalp is less oily and dry, hardly any hairs fall out, when my scalp gets oily and starts itching, the exact area where i am scatching, hairs fall out.

Once you deal with the inflammation topically and address what is upregulating the inflammation ie DHT/hormonal balance things should normalise.

I can see there being are some pretty interesting developments on the horizon in terms of topicals and regeneration !

I have a very aggravated scalp with build up and have tried 100’s of different ways to attack it - including expensive prescriptions like extina - basically nizoral foam.

The best thing for me to get a CLEAN HEALTHY scalp is to rinse my scalp with baking soda after shampooing then rinse it again with water to get the baking soda out.

I dont think baking soda has ANY effect in combatting hairloss - but I DO believe it will give you a clean healthy scalp to apply whatever it is you want to apply.

Please note - this really only applies to people with an aggravated itchy scalp.

IF YOU HAVE AGGRAVATED ITCHY SCALP WITH BUILD UP LIKE I DID - JUST TRY IT A FEW TIMES.

My hair dresser mixed me some custom made shampoo (I don’t know ingredients thou). It worked pretty good for my scalp.

Are you on any hair vits and minerals?

I found over 20 yrs of trial and error that my MPB and sebum and DHT was the culprit but the minerals and vitamins helped immensely, something in the Maxi Hair and the Amino Max that I take if i stop taking them i get itchy immediately. Also it is aggravated by sugar and fatty foods, especially hamburgers etc

I’ve had the same problem for ages.

Personally I’ve found just pure Aloe Vera gel (usually comes in a large container at Wal-Mart, not the cosmetic kind) on the scalp really soothes the scalp and reduces oiliness and itch.

It doesn’t smell too great though (smells like glue), so I usually just put it on 30-40 minutes before stepping into the shower.

I also use Nizoral shampoo.

Yes Hangin- I do take the Maxi hair along with Omega 3, Resveratrol, Vitamin D and an antioxidant multi. I was told from a dermatologist that it is probably Seborrhea. I am currently using T-Sal shampoo as soap, sometimes Nizoral 1% but I tel you the top of my head shows know signs of inflammation or dandruff… just an oily cesspit. I have also tried a natural sulpher soap from Whole Foods and Aloe Vera on the forehead area when it gets the “burns”.

Are you taking a good chelated multi mineral
I believe its something in the minerals that stops my itchiness, Kal Amino max is a good one and not too expensive at all
