“do any of you have really really bad dandruff that nothing seems to cure?? I've tried a few different shampoos and a whole bunch of those damm home remedies and mothing works. The itching is getting to be unbearable I'll wake up at like 4:00 in the morning because I can't stop scratching sometimes my head starts bleeding!! anyone have any advice?? my head is starting to itch again just thinking about it, HELP!”
“time to visit a skin doctor... seriously. there are lots of skin issues that have dandruff as one of the symptoms..and they can be fixed.

“Have you tried the high priced stuff that looks and smells like tar? That stuff knocks out anything IMHO. A buzz cut works too.”
“sure it's not lice?”
“Ooh, ouch !!”
“I recommend shaving your head with a straight razor then applying a topical solution of rubbing alcohol and salt.
Let us know how that works, okay?”
“pamma-yes I'm sure it's not lice... owl-I'm flipping you off right now... divinity-I tried the jason products and they didn't work, I think I'll try the nizoral if the denorex I just used last night doesn't work, and thanks to everyone that helped so far.”
“oh dude I just watched the most awesome movie on sci-fi the other night called yeti he could just stick his hand into peoples chests and pull there hearts out, and he could leap like a couple hundred yards at a time, probably the best movie I've ever seen in my life so far”
“This one smells um, unique, but I've heard good things about it:
You might also want to google the "no poo" method of hair care. That's no shampoo. Hair washing is done with baking soda and apple cider vinegar instead. No more chemicals.”
“Oh, to live on.... Sasquatch Mountain....
(apologies to Neil Young, LOL)
Yeah, that was SNOW, not dandruff.
“already tried the vinegar method it doesn't work and when I start sweating from spinning or my P.E. class my head starts smelling like vinegar. "huh you smell what, I don't smell anything"”
I get a dry scalp in winter.. Was told it was from the electric heat and also something to do with not being out in the sun as much as in summer... I don't know...
Anyway, I was told to buy this stuff.. I use it, it works.. I wanted to make sure it was the product so I switched to another shampoo.. Dry scalp was back in a few days...
Now if only the stuff would grow back the hair that is falling out...

“It's psoriasis, I'd bet. It will prolly take a cortisone shot to clear it up, and shampoo with coal tar may help control it.
That's my experience. Haven't found a cure yet, but when it gets to be too much I get the shot. It all goes away and starts coming back a few weeks later.”
“what phils son said...see a doctor...they actually have prescription shampoos”
“hey, shot glass, your link just takes you to their homepage is the stuff you used the anti-dandruff or the tea tree??”
“Go into the classic section.. I use the anti dandruff stuff... It really works for me..
“Shampoo with salicylic acid in it helps a lot, along with a "dry scalp" conditioner.”
“Dandruff can be a yeast infection. Treating for dry scalp could be counter productive.”
