I can tell that the weather is changing. My scalp reacts! I get very dry skin, not dandruff, but cracking, bleeding, etc. It is quite unpleasant and I want to use something natural. My hair dresser last year gave me some chemically stuff for my scalp. I use Nature's Gate Tree Tea oil shampoo and conditioner and also a Jason's brand too. It seems like nothing works. I have tried the natural dandruff shampoo, but that doesn't help because my situation is not dandruff. I only have this problem when the weather starts getting cooler.

i have similar problems... both my skin and my hair freak out in the fall. it's terrible. i have found some stuff that helps. the first is taking flax seed oil. it's improves my scalp termendously. take the dose recommended on the lable. what i have also found helps is this totally natural shampoo;<br><br>
Nettle Shampoo<br><br>
This shampoo cleans your hair without stripping all of the natural oils, because it has none of the harsh detergents of shampoos you are used to. All natural ingredients! No artificial thickeners, so it is thinner than you've experienced before. I just squeeze a little directly onto my scalp. My hair feels thicker and stronger since I started using this nourishment for the hair! Distilled water, saponified Coconut and Olive oils with retained glycerine, nettles, horsetail, comfrey, calendula, irish moss, lavender, rosemary, clary sage, jojoba oil, aloe vera and shea butter. 8 oz cobalt squeeze bottle.<br><br>
it's made by sarah at herbsfromthelabyrinth.com i love it and think it's worth the extra cost to buy it. if you do get it realize that it's very diffeent than commercial shampoo, you need to pour it into something to get it to you hair (the cap works fine for me) and you have to resist the desire ti "wash it all out" as it does leave the hair feeling very different than regualr shampoo. but i LOVE the results and no sores on my head this fall, even though my face has broken out a bit. (she can also make you something custom, if you are sensative to anything in her formula)<br><br><a href="http://www.herbsfromthelabyrinth.com" target="_blank">http://www.herbsfromthelabyrinth.com</a><br><br>
if you do get some from sarah, tell her i sent you.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>

How often do you wash/wet your hair. I do the no poo method and only wash every 3rd day or so and find it not so drying. Jojoba oil rubbed into your scalp every day might help.
