My problem is that I have dandruff, itching and flaking. I have seen a lot of stylists and they couldn’t help, so I keep my hair in braids. I would like to relax my hair, but I don’t want to deal with the flaking. Is there anything I can do? –Janetta
Your itching and flaking may be more than dry scalp or dandruff. Try setting up an appointment with a dermatologist to determine your true coif condition and then you will get to the right solution. There are conditions like eczema and psoriasis that produce flakes in excess, but they can be managed and controlled with dermatological solutions.
