I can't figure out why it's happening. nothing i'm doing seems to be helping.
It looks like scales of dry skin. I don't think it's dandruff b/c it isn't oily at all- it's extremely dry. I've used Head and Shoulders and Selsun Blue and neither worked- only made my scalp burn. I bought some Desert Essence Tea Tree and Blue Cypress oil shampoo to use and it seems to do better but still not helping that much. I've tried oiling my scalp with olive oil, borage oil, cod liver oil (yuck), and tea tree oil. They all make the flaking stop for the day but then I wake up and it's just as bad as before I oiled it. I've been taking omega-3 and omega-6 supplements and high quality food based vitamins.
Could it be hormonal- I'm breastfeeding.
Anyone have any advice- I'll try anything
