little raised balls of dry skin on scalp

Hi Lebron, Thank you very much for your reply. It's such an annoying problem to have and I'm really trying to get it to go away. I'm trying different topical things like apple cider vinegar diluted 50% with water, which doesn't seem to work. I will try to use the olive oil though, although I think my scalp produces enough oil to keep it moisturized. I will try to look into the miracle splash as well, and see if that helps any. I actually started to see a naturopath about it, and I've been on a no yeast (so no bread or beer) and a no dairy diet for a bout a week now. She also recomended omega 3 fish oil which actually seems to help quite alot to sooth the itch. I'm also limiting sugar. Hopefully within a month it will be much better. I've been a week as of now without washing my hair, just rinsing it in cool water, and it is very oily looking, as im not using any tincture with alcohol in it that would dry it up. I'm not sure if the oil and sebum are the best for the hair, but hopefully when I do wash it, my scalp wont produce as much oil....I tried a few weeks back to go without not washing but I just couldn't do it. Now I'm thinking i'm gonna try to go for two weeks and then see what happens. How many times a week do you wash your hair now after going through that one month? Did the scalp oil really decrease after your process? Have you seen any of the hair that you lost grow back at all?  (Feb 4, 2010 | post #23)


little raised balls of dry skin on scalp

Hi Lebron, When you did not wash your hair for a month did you find that the itch somewhat subsided? As opposed to when you were washing it everyday? Also, when you werent washing your hair everyday did the little balls increase in number on the scalp? Im currently trying to go for a few weeks without washing to slow down the sebum production and after the month I plan to only wash a few times a week. Í'm concerned now, however, because I`m seeing more of the white balls on my scalp and they seem to be attached to the ends of my shed hair, which I wasn`t seeing when I was washing frequently. I hope this will subside as soon as I start washing again. I`m also trying to use ratio-ectosome and apple cider vinegar for the itch, but neither completely take it away. Could you please tell me exactly which tincture you were using. My theory is if I can get rid of the itch, then I can stop the scalp irritation and hairloss. I`m also on finasteride. Thanks  (Jan 3, 2010 | post #20)
