Top Products for an Itchy Flaky Scalp17:00
I have a fussy scalp. Full stop. For a long time I struggled to find products that didn't irritate my skin and in return I ended up with a scaly scalp and a flaky scalp (dandruff I curse you!).
After struggling with my scalp for months, searching high and low for helpful posts, I took myself to the doctors who diagnosed a couple of products, to work alongside my faithful products, that have been working well to finally sort my scalp out and reduce the scaly-ness and flakes - hallelujah!
I have featured T Gel in the past and prior to my trip to the doctors this shampoo helped to keep my scalp as calm as it could be and to reduce the itching. I use the Sensitive Scalp Variety and the Coal Tar one. These can be found in Boots and Home Bargains.
Nizoral Anti Dandruff Shampoo (available from your Pharmacy)
This, as the doctor advised, I use on a weekly basis to control the scaly-ness. I have noticed a visible difference in my scalp and a little of this lathers up well.
DiproSalic Scalp Application
This was prescribed to me so I don't know if you can find it over the counter however I have been using this at night, probably every other night, applying a small amount to the itchy areas of my scalp and massaging it in. Your hair can look oily with this but that can be controlled by using a tiny bit.
Overall these 3 (4) products have been keeping my scalp calm and overall improving it. If you have been having trouble with your scalp perhaps give these a go or take a trip to your doctors!
