Huge Cysts In Hair

3 posts in this topic

I just noticed I have some pretty nasty cysts in my head hair - completely unnoticeable, but recently one got huge. I've always had them, but ignored them. I don't get cysts anywhere else.

What's the likelihood this is due to the shampoo?

Recently I had a revelation the creams I was using were destroying my skin - which prevented me from getting perfectly clear.

I found this out when jojoba oil broke me out a few days ago clogging literally every single pore. Lovin' the OCM recommendation I got atm. I'm officially done w/ all products. After 13 years, no product or prescription has ever worked, and every product ended up breaking me out with prolonged use.

Anyone have some good shampoo alternatives?

Wash with baking soda in water, rinse with ACV in water. And check here:


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

^^ what alternativista recommended. If you are not having luck with homemade shampoo, give shea moisture shampoos a try. I switched my shampoo and all other products recently and have had no new breakouts so far.


Current regimen: garlic supplements [as needed], Enzymedica gluten blocker [as needed], nicadan [not sure if it works yet]. I try to simplify as much as I can. Don't take more supplements than you need....try one at a time and be patient.

The supplements that really helped me when my acne was at its worst: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements. NOTE: I do not recommend DIM for long term use, and I do not recommend hormonal creams without doctor supervision.

Lifestyle & Skin Care: acupuncture, regular exercise/ yoga, low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
