<p>I have been dealing with this for awhile and it is driving me nuts!</p>
<p>I feel like I have tried everything...the tar shampoo, traditional dandruff shampoos, tea tree oil, rosemary oil, etc.</p>
<p>Basically, I have very dry skin, extremely flaky on my scalp and then my hair will get really oily about 1-2 inches from the root. So annoying. So when I have put coconut oil etc on the scalp, it seems to help my scalp, but then my hair is so oily and it takes forever to get it out.</p>
<p>Ugh! Suggestions?</p>
<p>TIA!</p>

<p>Yuck - I had this problem, too. My scalp issues were form candida, so I had to deal with that to heal my scalp. It was not simple and I still have to stay on top of it, but as long as I follow my diet and take my supplements it is fine. The greasiness I fixed by switching to no-poo (no - shampoo), where I use a paste of baking soda to scrub my scalp, rinse, and then rinse with a splash of apple cider vinegar in water. I do this only about twice a week or less and that is all I do to my hair.</p>

<p>I have been wondering about candida. I am pretty ignorant about it, will need to look into it.</p>
<p>I will have to try the baking soda stuff.</p>
<p>What is your diet like?</p>
<p>I appreciate you responding!</p>

<p>I am now gluten, dairy, soy, egg, and sugar free. I would love to have some dairy back  - I actually can tolerate small amounts but dd is VERY sensitive to trace dairy. I like Healing By Bee for candida help (although I didn't do her diet, it has good info) and there is also a great thread in the TF forum:</p>
