VERY flakey scalp = Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I started Accutane a little less than a month ago and the last week or so I am experiencing a VERY flakey scalp and I am really hoping that someone has an idea of how to stop this. I have tried using my head and shoulders but that doesn't seem to be doing much.

I know that it's a side effect of getting rid of my acne and I should just suck it up, but it is getting out of control. I mean they are everywhere, some big flake and a lot of little flakes. I've seriously considered dying my hair a light color so that they aren't as visible :-( but my work shirts are black.

Anyone have any input of products or anything else? This really sucks. Thanks in advance.

I heard mixing in some jojoba oil in with your shampoo works pretty good. Theres a post on here somewhere inregards to your question if you type in the search at the top right

When I have it bad I just rub a ton of babyoil (or whatever oil is available) in my scalp and let it sit for 10 minutes or something like that, then rinse off. Usually does the trick.
