    Ok people I have some mad dandruff and head & shoulders just doesn't flow with me. I asked my hair stylist but I get the feeling she's just trying to get some commission. My question is what do I try next?

    Maybe it's too much shampoo? I thought shampooing too frequently causes your scalp to dry out and get all ashy.

    head and shoulders, pyrithione zinc is very effective

    however don't use too much, target your scalp and let it sit on there for 3-4 minutes.

    don't get the ones that "tingle"...if they have one that's unscented that's your best bet...

    H+S is stupid in a way because they have great actives, but then fuck it up with all these fragrances and shit which are irritating and can cause more dry skin.

    dandruff isn't caused by dry skin, at least not in most cases...the scalp is has alot of oil glands and has the most sebum production second to the nose..

    it's usually caused by a fungus, or seborrheic dermatitis

    just asking cause omega3 deficiency can lead to over all increase in inflammation. didn't mean to imply that skin and dandruff cause.

    You might have dry scalp? That's what I have and I use a shampoo that has tea leaf extract in it and it's been working great for me.
