I have extremely itchy scalp, no dandruff, and thinning hair; any suggestions?
By Carol from Aragon, GA
I don't know about the thinning hair part, but I recently tried Selsun Blue for Itchy Dry Scalp. I feel like I noticed an improvement after just a couple uses. Here is a link, so you know what to look for in the stores:
I hope you find something that works for you. I know it's no fun! Best of luck!
I had the same problem several years ago, and tried all kinds of different shampoos, including the dandruff shampoos because for the first time in my life I had what appeared to be an awful case of dandruff. When the itching got to the point that I couldn't stand the itching any more I went to a dermatologist and he said I had psoriasis. He prescribed a special shampoo and a lotion that didn't do anything for the appearance of my hair, but the combination sure helped.
It was almost completely gone within a few months and when I went back for a three month check up the doctor was amazed that it had cleared up so fast, as bad as it was. I still have some of the shampoo and lotion left and occasionally I feel an itch that is different than a typical itch and I use the prescription stuff a couple times and the itching clears up right away.
Hi! I had this problem and tried many shampoos that did not work. Finally, I got Desert Essence Therapeutic Tea Tree Shampoo. It solved the problem. You can get it at most health food stores or online. I am adding a link to where I purchase the shampoo. I have been very happy with this vendor's prices and service. Several family members have also tried this and are now using it. I have tried other tea tree shampoos, but they have not worked as well as this one does for me. Good luck! http://www.iherb.com/Desert-Essence ... t-Shampoo-12-fl-oz-355-ml/11538?at=0
T-Gell shampoo works for me. Good luck.
You are probably allergic to something in your shampoo. Try to find an "all natural" shampoo without any artificial fragrances or colors.
When I had that problem, the doctor suggested using a pine tar shampoo (Neutrogena makes one). It worked. I find my scalp is only itchy in the dry winter months. Good luck!
It looks like you have some great ideas for itchy scalp. I too have thinning hair and have started taking a vitamin called High Potency Stresstabs with Energy from Wal-Mart. This was recommended by a customer at my hairdresser's. She was remarking about how it had helped her hair thicken. I can see a difference already and my husband even mentioned to me that my hair seemed to be thickening. It will take at least 6 months to see a BIG difference, but I finally have hope for my thinning hair.
