Lately I've noticed a few flakes from dry scalp. I guess it's that time of year. What have you guys done to cure this? I'm currently using Panteen shampoo and conditioner. I have rather oily hair and so I shampoo every day. Is a change in shampoo in order?

I think so. Try Nizoral AD; it used to be available only by prescprition, but you can buy it OTC now.

Can you post the URL of the site where you got the free sample?

The URL for the info and free sample is http://www.nizoral.com/ Look in the lower left corner of the screen. BTW, I went to the store and got some as well. I looked at all of the other brands of dandruff control shampoo and Nizoral is the only ones with Ketoconazole that I could find. This is the chemical that kills the fungus that lives on the scalp. I know this sounds disgusting but apparently everyone on the planet has this fungus living on their head and the flaky skin is a reaction to your body trying to get rid of it.

I take the approach I read about in Men's Health a while ago - attack the problem with several different products. Do some label reading in the dandruff shampoo section and you will see a few different active ingrediants touted. Which is the best for your particular problem? Hard to say. You might even have several things going wrong up there. So pick up two or three different products and rotate between them.

In my shower right now are Head & Shoulders Intensive Treatment shampoo with selenium sulfide and Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo with coal tar. I saw another brand with salicylic acid so I also sometime just use my Neutrogena face wash which has that all over my head. I keep my hair at less than a quarter inch so it's easy to work these products into my scalp. It also means I need to be dilligent about dry scalp as it will be immediately noticeable. Oh, and I top it off with a little moistuizer as well.
