Dear friends
light tiny areas of dermatitis seborrhoica(rearly) and dry dandruff on the scalp (often recurring) could be zinc deficiency?
The diet has helped me in many ways, but may be dairy and other avoids ( I am compliant at 80 %) also for me are scalp damaging !
Please on zinc, if someone knows he or she can confirm zinc role in scalp and skin condition.

Hi Maria,

zinc plays a large role in scalp/skin health.  Because it seems to be easily fixed by zinc, it is often used as the only one supplement necessary.  However, zinc is used in body processes in many ways ... so I will give you 'the better way' to supplement with zinc.  Use 15.0-25.0mg zinc + 1.5-2.5mg copper + 500mg of taurine (an inexpensive amino acid) .... [being an 0, adding some L-glutamine helps too].

The largest improvement in my skin/scalp health came from the addition of soy lecithin to my diet.

there are also other considerations too ... about selenium deficiency.  The fastest (and likely, best) way to supplement this is eating plenty of seaweeds.

sprinkle some granules of lecithin + seaweeds over salad or anything really .....

hope these ideas help

John

Hi again Maria,

just thought of something that may apply ......... skin and scalp/hair have small natural glands that secrete oils to keep skin soft.  Too often the detergent/cleaning action of modern soaps are so strong that these oils are washed away too.  I find it necessary to rinse shampoo out of my hair in about 5 SECONDS after it has been applied.  [I know one man to control his facial-eczema does not wash his hair ever!]

There are such 'soaps' as castille that clean by other means than emulsifying.  Perhaps, these may hold an answer for the long term.

John

I would have to disagree with the always part of this Lola. It doesn't work so well if you use hair products. Tried it and it left such a build up on my hair it weren't ( yeah I know) funny.     For people who don't use hair product, it's a great idea AND stretches your shampoo.

Same tip was given to me by my "famous" (to me) hairdresser. I did it for quite a long time UNTIL another hairdresser commented on the amount of buildup on my hair. That quickly explained the problems I was having. As I have the finest, straightest hair in the world {{ - okay, as I think of it, it's really not a laughing matter -   }},  I do have to use product to make my hair look even half decent. The fact that I have a truly awesome hairdresser, who can make my hair look like a half a million bucks w/ just a haircut alone {{the other half million comes into play w/ the product }}, is a miracle in itself.  Lo and behold, she even charges a decent amount. In St. Louis, it would cost me $35 to get a great haircut like this, she charges $18!!   I couldn't make an appt fast enuf!!

My hair is cut on the short side. It's shorter now than I've had it in a long time. It looks "okay" if I don't "fix" it when I'm tooling around the house. BUT if I go anywhere, I still have to spray, gel, curl, spray. Just a pain in the butt.  There really is NO hair cut, even as good as my stylist is, that is going to leave me product free.     Well, unless I got a crew cut.

I really like the apple cider vinegar rinse for residue build-up removal. Try it and let me know your thoughts. I use a mix of 1:4, ACV:water.

I've used this before, but always felt like I then smelled like ACV.  Maybe I'll give it another try as I just bought a whole gallon hoping straight ACV would kill the Japanese beetles. Don't think it worked, as they all looked like they were still "busy" when I last looked. No wonder we can't get rid of them, that's all they do!!

I have used various shampoos for dandruff, such as neem, doctor burt's" feelin flaky?" etc. and I always thought you had to leave them in a few minutes to get the effect...I just made that up, maybe.....so maybe I should wash them out real fast.....hmmmm, I'll try it.

I just got my haircut yesterday. I had hair to my shoulders but couldn't do anything with it. being as I can not use any of the hair styling/ plumping products. I just decided to go back to the cut I have worn for years, especially while I was in the military. Wash and wear type it is a 'pixie' cut or in the past a modified bowl cut. Believe it or not my husband prefers this cut to having mounds of hair that I can't do a thing with. I can actually let it go a few day without washing and not worrying. My current regimen for washing is Dr Bronner's Sal sads (a dimes worth) yes it it a house hold cleaner but it works to get the really nasty grime out so I use it about 2-3 times a week. followed by J R Liggets shampoo bar, or I use a mixture Imade at home from Natural Beauty book at Home. Final step is a Apple cider vinegar mixed with a peppermint teisane strong brew. This mix is especially for Dandruff or itchy scalp. It works quite well and leaves my hair nice and smooth and shiny too. Also I use luke warm to cool rinse after each step. Nothing toohot as this leaves pores open. I have also made a cold cream and a basic moisturizer.
Next project it to make a lip tint and replace most of my  housold cleaners with recipes from Clean House, Clean Planet.

Two questions:
1. what is a peppermint teisane strong brew?
2. Does the above help cut the ACV smell? I notice that for a day or two after using the ACV rinse, my scalp continues to small like vinegar, especially if I get hot.

A peppermint teisane strong brew would be a strong peppermint tea - or ?

My daughter came home from a camp this week - being out of reach from me -she had been swimming in the sea - but not taking a single shower in 10 days! Kids !

Her hair was soo greasy that it took 3 shampooings to get it more or less normal- the last rinse was with ACV - I added a bit of lavender oil and she smelled fine and her hair looked wonderful.

Thank you henriette for explaining tisane.

Drea no I don't smell like vinegar, vinegar is a natural deodarant. I have used it as a body cleanser and as a bath additive from time to time.  I use it to remove the buildup from my hair and scalp. this particular recipe is specific to dandruff and is to help strip it away gently and control the itch. I works rather nicely plus it has a nice wake up smell to it.

I hope this helps.
