flaky dandruff on scalp

Hi everyone! 

I have been dealing with this awful flaky dandruff and I don’t know how to treat it. It got me to think about scalp care, any product recommendations for dandruff and for scalp care in general. Any products that also keep hair healthy would be awesome too! I really want to get into bettering my hair in general, so like hair care. Thank you!!


Re: flaky dandruff on scalp

Hi, @Romaissa03 !  Do you have dandruff or maybe you have product buildup.


For dandruff, I recommend Neutrogena T-gel or T-sal.


For buildup, I recommend 

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo 8 oz/ 236 mL 

amika Reset Exfoliating Jelly Scalp Scrub 4.7 oz / 140 mL (not the oil)

- #SEPHORA COLLECTION Apple Cider Vinegar Cleansing Scalp Scrub 6.76 oz/ 200 mL 


For hydration

Briogeo Superfoods™ Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Hair Mask 8.0 oz/ 240 mL 

amika Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask 8 oz / 250 mL 

amika The Kure Intense Bond Repair Hair Mask 


For scalp hydration, I recommend 

- #The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + Hyaluronic Acid Scalp Serum 


I've used all of these products.  I thought I had dandruff, but it was product buildup.  I now rotate among the clarifying products followed by rotating the deep conditioning masks.  To keep my scalp from becoming too dry, I use the hyaluronic acid.


I wash my hair two or three times a week.  You don't necessarily need to wash every day.  My regular shampoo and conditioner are

Verb Ghost Weightless Shampoo 

Verb Ghost Weightless Conditioner 


If you live near a Sephora, you should be able to request samples of most of these products to try.
