Common Questions and Answers about Dandruff shampoo safe for color treated hair


Avatar f tn i have just colored my hair in nov and i have dandruff. i am trying to find a dandruff shampoo that is good for African American hair and wont strip my color every time i use it. any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Okay, I couldn't get hold of the Suave Clarifying Shampoo as it's American and I'm from the UK but I got the Neutrogena shampoo for greasy hair and it's worked! When I couldn't find the Suave shampoo I tried the Listerine with my normal shampoo and that didn't work so make sure you get the Suave or Neutrogena! Thanks so much for telling us Suave & Listerine girls! I'm so glad it worked!!
Avatar f tn Before the hair loss began with Synthroid, I had long, thick wavy hair and I dyed my hair a few shades lighter than my natural color every 5-6 weeks. My hair was extremely healthy. After the Synthroid-induced hair loss began, and to this day, my hair is thin, dry, and though I rarely dye my hair any more (hair loss shows more on lighter hair), my roots take about 6 months to come through. Huge difference in growth rate!
Avatar m tn claims. Tinea versicolor does not cause internal symptoms--just color change on the skin. It can be treated with topical applications (Selsun Blue, for instance), but then it's widespread, that can be hard to do. Oral itraconazole and ketoconazole are safe and effective. You should discuss these options with your doctor. Thanks. Dr.
496771 tn?1209698358 One day I found a new one that I had not tried, it is Natural Match from L'oreal. This is the first hair color that has worked for me and I hope it will help others.
529981 tn?1212853666 Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I have since figured that if talc works to disguise it, I bought some Batiste dry shampoo which is brilliant (doesnt solve the problem but hair looked so much better) I also bought T-Gel for greasy hair shampoo. I have used the t-gel shampoo for 4 days and so far so good and havent needed the dry shampoo. I wash and rinse hair then condition the ends, then put some more t-gel on crown area while showering so rinse out after a couple of minutes.
1548538 tn?1293875433 When I found this thread about a week ago, I was actually relieved (to see so many others with same problems) and also even more frustrated (that there's no cure, or even a clear diagnosis. What I found interesting though, was that many people(not everyone) shared the same exact symptoms from the others. Like they had itchiness lasted for years, they have no patches or even dandruff but only the sandy balls, that they have weakened immune system, and some had depression, like myself.
Avatar f tn I HAVE THE SOLUTION. =D ( albeit temporary ^_^" ) I've just developed this same problem. Greasy/waxy "sticky" feeling hair at the crown, and am going to try a few remedies posted here to permanently solve it. My long blond hair has always been soft and flowing and even though i do have oily skin, this waxiness has never been an issue, and I'm still not sure why it's happened all of a sudden.
Avatar n tn Comb through while the may is in the hair (out in the sunlight is best so that you can see the nits and aren't reinfesting the house.) Wash out by putting a shampoo for oily hair DIRECTLY on the hair with NO water. Massage in.. add a little water to suds it up. Rinse. Repeat. I rinse with vinegar too. They WILL suffocate or at least slow down enough to get them out. Depending on severity.. you may have to do it the next day as well.
Avatar n tn I have been treated for depression and PTSD, but have never mentioned my compulsive picking. I have been prescribed both Zoloft and Prozac with Klonopin for the symptoms of anxiety and depression, but I still seem to pick at me head. The kicker is that I also do this in my sleep. I will literally wake up with blood under my nails. What treatment options are there other than medication? Should I tell my primary care physician or should I talk to a psychiatrist?
Avatar f tn I was also prescribed 2% Ketoconazole shampoo for my scalp but am terrified of it making my hair fall out or become dry and brittle... Has anyone ever tried Keto shampoo (Nizoral)? I would love to hear anymore thoughts on the scalp pain and also the seb derm. Thanks again!
Avatar n tn No one will believe my sister and she has cut her hair VERY short. Tried mayonaise, bleach, hair color, vasoline, vinegar, almost everything she can think of. I am so pleased to see that she is not the only one who has this she feels as if she is. She now has big bald spots on her head. We have been searching for help. She has been turned away from emergency rooms, hair stylists, specialists, dermatalogists, she cant take another dr telling her to go home she is crazy.
Avatar n tn ALSO i have had TERRIBLE hand eczema for years - this is also GONE!!!!! I have been using baby shampoo as soap and shampoo right now...until i brave up to try out a new soap...but i really think this was it....GET IT OUT OF YOUR HOUSE if you use it! and wash anything it touched! (soap dishes, shower caddies, bed sheets, pillow cases, hand towels....etc...) I know how awful skin issues are...especially on your face! I hope this helps!
Avatar n tn BUGGED OUT, I BELIEVE YOU! It has been suggested to me by a psychiatrist that I have psychosis because I'm plagued by bugs crawling & biting me but when I brush them away, I don't see anything! I have had this problem off & on for many years! However, after reading your post, I began checking my fingernails & hands when I scratch or brush the bugs away & discovered that there are actually bugs!
Avatar m tn I started that bath treatment w/ sun laundry detergent,color safe bleach, alfalpha tablets and i added a whole box of baking soda and soaked for an hour atleast... Try it and see if it works??? good luck...
Avatar n tn I actually wore a little eye shadow to work yesterday for the first time in weeks without any problems. My doctor said that this is a safe product FOR ME to use as long as I do not get it in my eyes. (I apply with a Q-Tip) Infact, since this started I have used Q-Tips so that I do not spread it anywhere else. He said I may have to use this twice a day for 2 to 4 weeks...applied very "lightly". I have no problem with that as long as it goes entirely away.
288415 tn?1231634102 I recently used a dandruff shampoo and almost immediately the running of my ears slowed down to a near halt but now I have scaly skin in the outer ear with incessant ringing and my sense of smell is stronger. Does this make sense?
Avatar n tn i was just putting my 4 year old daughter in for her rest. she pushed her hair out of her face and said "ouch" and then asked me if she had a mosquito bite. i looked where it hurt and there is a hard bump/lump behind her ear on the bone part (not on the ear itself). i touched it and it hurts. it's about as big as an eraser on top of a pencil or a pea. it is not red or anything (skin color). i get very worried about these kind of things and will give her dr.
Avatar f tn I made this profile just for you guys. i'm experiencing the same thing, I can see the little yellowish or white boogers. I believe I have body lice, ugh can't stand it. anyway, as my post above says(which was meant for one individual) parasites are nocturnal that's why it worsens at night. something i'm about to try is minimizing my problem area's. what I mean by this is, for example pick a few outfits out, bag everything else.
Avatar f tn I have been taking homeopathic pills from AZO Yeast (twice a day) and applying diluted (safe for face) tea tree oil (anti-fungal agent) topically to the areas at night. I have only been doing this for two days and my skin is pretty much completely clear (knock on wood). I've never written on these forums before, but know how frustrating this is. Give this a shot. Eat well, get sleep, try to stop stressing and try this. Hope it helps you too.
Avatar n tn i went to the gyno for the first time a few weeks ago and she said it could be because im a little overweight and she suggested using a good anti-dandruff shampoo. i've been using baby powder and it hasn't really done much, so off to the shampoo! :P im definitely gonna try some of these other things too. thanks!!
Avatar m tn its a strong pet flea powder that works, also you have to use it around your house and wash your bedding with hot clorox thats safe for colors. as far as it being on your skin and crawling around you have to use either witch hazel or green rubbing alcohol to kill it on your body. its very tough to get it off you. not recomended but ive heard that the amonia content in windex helps kill this disgusting flea/ bed bug infestation. borax powder i hears is also usefull.
Avatar n tn My GP was stumped, as was my dentist - the 'colour' was swabbed and tested and nothing, I was treated for a fungal infection and nothing - I would make it bleed to scrape the colour off. At one point I cut out all coloured food from my diet for a couple of days (water and pasta! no vits..) and it still happened so isn't colouring or caffeine. I had tests for my cortisol levels, which were too high (they thought they might be too low??) but the specialist thought that was still unrelated.
948349 tn?1294383837 Is your natural skin color fair/medium/dark? The reason I'm asking is just to get an idea of how well it will work for me. I have tan/medium skin and don't make much Vitamin D in the sun unfortunately. Also I'm wondering if this works for women with hormonal/cyclic acne.
Avatar n tn i have had for 15 yrs tried lots of therapy have lived in tropics and high desert...
Avatar n tn I soothe my scalp by patting my scalp constantly resulting in the breakage of my hair. There are no signs except for a very dry scalp and when I apply any type of grease, the itchiness gets worse. I've tried all types of shampoo's, conditoners, grease, and hair treatments, but nothing seems to work. If you have any ideas on how to treat this please feel free to let me know.

I was drinking a glass of wine when my face suddenly got as big as a balloon! My lips...the itchiness....i am 26. Am i destined to spend the rest of my life like this?

Avatar m tn Did you get treated for this? Did it take care of the problem? What symptoms were you having prior to being diagnosed?
