Tip Tuesday: Leave the flakes for the snow.

Let’s talk real quick about dry scalp.
It happens.
And often in the winter, which is nice for some because “Oh, hey! It’s just snow!” but some of us live in the desert and are left without an alibi.
Either way you gotta git rid of it and I just happen to know the scalp secret weapon.


Philip B. Anti-Flake 
It really works and it works very quickly.
All I do is massage a small hand full into my scalp real good and let it sit for a couple of minutes and then rinse it out.
I usually only have to wash with it 2 or 3 times and the flakes disappear, but if your scalp is super dry it might take more, just use it until the problem clears up & keep the rest for next time (if there be a next time)


ps thank you for all of your sweet comments yesterday, so many good ideas and sweet words absolutely made my day!

    This is perfect timing! I have been scratching my head all day like I have lice or something. (Ew!) I’m in Utah and we don’t have the usual snow for me to blame it on… bummer. I have tried lots of products but haven’t heard of this one, so I’m crossing my fingers. Thanks for the recommendation! Your blog is my favorite. 🙂

    I had to chime in on this discussion. I’m a nursing mom and have dealt with oily scalp/dandruff for years. Embarrassed by it, I didn’t talk to a doctor about it until recently. He told me it affects 50% of people. He recommended the tar shampoo and other common chemicals, but said I’d have to use it for life. Those are stinky and not the best for your hair, so I looked for a natural option. The Aveda shampoo for dandruff didn’t do a thing for me. Next I tried one I found on Amazon, and I noticed a significant improvement after just one day. The product also is free of other harmful chemicals such as SLS and other lathering agents. The lathering agent it has is natural, safe, and works great. Anyway, had to share. I’m not compensated in any way. Just glad to have found a natural option that works. I do leave it on my scalp for 3-5 minutes in the shower. The product is by Maple Holistics, which makes several different options, so I’m guessing they have a dry scalp option too. Here’s the link to the one I used: Hope this is helpful to someone!

      Thanks for providing the link. The Aveda did not work for me, either.

    I get very dry scalp from the Oribe Dry Texturizing spray. I also notice that I have a lot more split ends since using it. I love the product, though, and hate to give it up. Anyone else have this problem with dry shampoos?

    YAY!!! So grateful for this post! I have a houseful of dry/flaky scalps, myself included. I’ve tried Wen with tea tree oil and have not had any success. Neutrogena makes a daily control shampoo that works pretty well to get rid of the flakes but does not heal the dry scalp and needs to be used often. Looking forward to trying this new product! Thank you!

    I had to go to the dermo for my dry scalp & dandruff. He told me to use a rotation of 3 non-prescription shampoos: tar (like Neutrogena T-Gel), salicylic acid (Neutorgena T-Sal), and Nizoral A-D. I did that for several weeks and it cured me. Now the only time the condition recurs is when I visit up North in the winter, but the shampoo routine fixes me up every time.

      BTW, I do color my hair and the shampoo may have hastened the fading a little but not dramatically. Wash your hair first when you get in the shower and leave the shampoo on while you do other things so it can work on your scalp for a few minutes.

        I went to the demo too and they gave me medicated shampoo after I did the rotation of the Neutrogena shampoos. The only 2 things that help are: Apple cider vinegar and Shea Moisture’s Tea Tree oil shampoo. If you do an ACV rinse for 7 days straight, your dandruff will literally disappear. To keep it away, do the rinse 2 days a week after that or just use the tea tree shampoo. The shampoo is only $9.95 at Target or Walmart.
