    Good afternoon. Is there flaking of your scalp also? You should change your shampoo if possible and try to wash scalp/hair at least twice a week with shampoo. Also, oil your scalp everyday.

    I'm guessing by 'flaking' you mean tiny dandruff looking things that fall off when I scratch the hair? In that case then yes. I don't use any shampoo at the moment, and i rub hair cream on my hair everyday. Soulmate to be precise. I feel like the hair is malnourished. LOL. Is that possible?

    Hello. If it flakes, it's just a case of dry scalp. You have to take care of your hair everyday to combat dryness. Get a good shampoo and use as advised earlier.

    What do you mean take care of your hair daily? Wash it everyday? Cream it? I already do that. But I'm most likely doing something wrong, which is what i'm trying to find out. And I dont know a "good" shampoo. It'll be nice if you could recommend one.

    Hello. If in need of a prescription shampoo or drug like steroids which maybe used, you need to consult a Dermatologist. Otherwise just visiting the pharmacy and getting a good shampoo for dry scalp will help. And yes, washing your hair with clean water daily and shampooing like I already mentioned will also help.
