Scalp Dandruff Gone With Coal Tar Shampoo

Posted by Jofo, 23 March 2013 · 763 views

I try to make individual blog posts for each experiment and successful remedy that I try, so I wanted to make a brief post about this. I have been dealing with scalp dandruff on and off for a long time. I don't know whether or not it's related to my seborrheic dermatitis, but I suspect it might be. Recently, for the past several months, my dandruff has been particularly stubborn and hasn't responded to my Head and Shoulders shampoos. As an experiment, I tried going two weeks without shampoo, which only made the flaking worse.
 
A few days ago I decided to try the coal tar shampoo that I had been using on my face (unsuccessfully), and after two or three days my dandruff almost completely disappeared. So the coal tar shampoo worked where two different types of Head and Shoulders shampoos failed. For reference, I just used a generic store brand shampoo.




i have such an incredible problem with dandruff now im on accutane, and im wondering what coal tar shampoo you used?

I used a store brand from a local grocery store called Publix, It's just a knock-off of Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo. Dandruff isn't always caused by the same thing, however, so there is no guarantee that coal tar will work for you. In my case I was probably dealing with a fungus, but in your case it may just be dry skin. If it is dry skin, you can try not using any shampoo for a week, which is effective in stopping dandruff for some people.
