Does Accutane dry out your hair?

Recommended Posts

I've done two courses of accutane and my hair is driving me crazy. It's always dry and unmanageable. Every time I try I try to grow it out, I have no choice but to cut it short because it gets too dry and frizzy. I'm wondering if this is a result of accutane or just genes. Any ideas?

Im a 19 year old male and I shower once a day and shampoo about every other day.

Yeah maybe wash it every 2 days or so, before I started taking an accutane generic my hair was nice and oily now I only wash it maybe every 3-4 days because it is so damn dry. Get a conditioning mask if you need too, they work wonders.
