Accutane and dry flakes?

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one getting dry flakey particles falling from my hair? Or is my skin drying up up there. It burns badly when I spray hair spray up there, does it mean it really dry? Is it the Accutane? Or me? sad.gif

It's the Accutane, it's drying your scalp and making your skin more sensitive. Try using a leave in conditioner and getting it down onto your scalp. Hot oil treatments might help, too. Try not to get hairspray on your scalp, and look to see if you can find a brand that's for sensitive skin - maybe the Dove hair care line would burn less. Or maybe do without hairspray if you can. Only wash your hair when you really need to, but condition it and your scalp every time you get it wet.

As a matter of fact I'm using Dove hair conditioning moisturizer. Problem is, I don't really concentrate on my scalp like I should. Anyway, glad to know it's not just me. thanks.
