Not oily, but very of itchy flakey scalp


So about 2 years ago I started to get a really dry, itchy scalp (I think it was stress induced as it was during my exams). It would be so bad that I would itch it in the night that my scalp would end up bleeding.

I was prescribed an anti-fungal shampoo by the doctor which didn’t help.

I started to manage my scalp issues a little myself using certain shampoos and conditioners - but am definitely still suffering.

My routine was washing my hair every other day. If I left it any longer my scalp would get incredibly itchy and flakey - but not greasy.

I am now trying the no-poo method. I’m 2 weeks in, and I have been massaging my scalp and brushing my hair with a BBB every other day. My hair hasn’t really been greasy at all but the itchiness and flakiness hasn’t really changed. I have low porosity, thick, wavy hair. I have been alternating between washing with ACV and water twice a week. I was wondering if anyone has any advice?

Hi Lucy,

Check out The ebook you can find there gives great advice!

Good luck!
