Yup, probiotics have about as much health-benefits as taking multivitamins. Nothing concrete as far as we know now.

Want to treat your eczema? Take colder showers. Keep your living space clean. Get plenty of sleep. Eat healthier. Go to an allergist and figure out what you are allergic to (cannot stress this one enough). Keep your skincare routine simple, but effective. I basically only use a moisturizer and protopic when things get bad.

I use this moisturizer, Eucerin Original Healing Creme. I love this product because it literally only contains seven ingredients (Water, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Piroctone Olamine), none of which cause flareups for myself. Highly recommend it.

I also use this shampoo, and it's been working very well for me so far. No more dandruff or scalp itchiness.

I do not use any facial cleansers or body shampoo, mostly because I haven't found a good product for myself yet. My skin stays relatively clear even without using them too. Open to suggestions though if people have any.

There’s this :) No SLS! I haven’t used this specific shampoo, but have used other shampoos from this brand and they are very gentle...no fragrance, and very non-irritating.

Vanicream Free & Clear Medicated Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for sensitive skin - all hair types - maximum OTC strength zinc pyrithione 2% - preservative free - dermatologist tested - 8 ounce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WD8YQKL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_Qn9VAb56N0FJK

I have also tried the Noble Zinc bar, and it didn’t work for me either plus it irritated my skin (it has a very high ph, I tested it). It also has a lot of oils etc in it. I have the Vanicream shampoo in my amazon cart, as it looks to be more mild and doesn’t have all that oil in it.

Seconding seborrheic dermatitis, I have it and my symptoms are the same. My dermatologist recommended Neutrogena T-Sal and Neutrogena T-Gel (both western products) or prescription shampoo/topicals. I have also used Vanicream Free & Clear Medicated Anti-Dandruff Shampoo although I wouldn’t repurchase because it’s a milky/creamy feel and doesn’t wash out 100% on my fine greasy hair, I have to wash again with a separate shampoo to get it all out.

Some things I learned since I started CG Method:

  1. No sulfate shampoo. This subreddit actually helped me find a great alternative to Head and Shoulders: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WD8YQKL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_dgAZAbVEBQTD1

    The price is more, but you don't need a lot. It can be a little drying.
    This leads me to....

  2. Lots of (silicone free) Conditioner!

  3. make you're own leave-in conditioning spray. Fill a spray bottle with one-third of your favorite conditioner, the rest with cold water. Shake before use, and spray! I didn't believe it until I lost all hope!

    Hope that helps! My hair texture is similar to yours so feel free to message me on any other questions.

I buy it from Amazon

Great suggestions by everyone. Tried tar gel and nizoral, I think nizoral worked better for me but the fragrance was flaring my eczema. I do jojoba oil scalp treatments, as needed.

This is my daily shampoo these days and I think it has help to prevent a flaky scalp:

u/bearable_lightness · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I recommend trying a ketoconazole shampoo (if you haven't already) and going sulfate-free. For example, a solid routine for active dandruff is Nizoral (1% ketoconazole) a couple times a week and a sulfate-free shampoo like Free & Clear on the days you aren't using Nizoral. Once the active flare up is under control, you can cut back to one application of Nizoral per week for maintenance and then ultimately replace it with Free & Clear Medicated (2% zinc pyrithione - essentially sulfate-free Head & Shoulders).

I used this approach with my last flare up almost 2 years ago, and I haven't had a problem since. I probably only use Free & Clear Medicated every other week or so at this point. Previously, I had been to a derm who prescribed me a 4% ketoconazole shampoo, but I didn't get sustainable results until I switched my "normal" shampoo to a super gentle, sulfate-free option.

u/MakeMeMew · 2 pointsr/HaircareScience

Are you referring to the Scalp RECOVERY? If so, the active ingredient is 1% pyrithione zinc, so you’ll want to look for another shampoo with the same. I believe the T Gel has coal tar, which is why you didn’t like the smell. We like this one:

This is my Eternal Struggle. My hair is wavy and bleached and I live in a hard water area too, so I still struggle with dandruff pretty frequently, but it's much more under control than it used to be.

Shampoo - I'm currently alternating between Free & Clear's dandruff shampoo (sulfate free, but it still feels kind of harsh) and the new As I Am dandruff shampoo (which is hands down the gentlest one I've tried, but with less pyrithone zinc). Sciencey Hair Blog has a massive list of medicated shampoos with notes on whether they contain harsh or drying ingredients, although some of the links are out of date.

For hard water, look for a chelating shampoo and do a deep clean once every week or two. Chelating shampoos will be more stripping, so you'll want to deep condition afterwards. As noted at the bottom of that article, most water filters won't actually help with hard water anyways, so a chelating shampoo is your best option there.

For other ideas, check out this guide on the fungus that is thought to be behind sebhorreic dermatitis, which is the most common cause of dandruff. It's a LOT of info and it's focused mostly on facial skincare, but your scalp is skin too, and the rundown on what ingredients help and hurt may help you narrow down whether any of your current products are aggravating the problem.

I do and this is the only product that has worked for me: Vanicream Medicated

I use it every two days.

Read simpleskincarescience’s compilation of research and product recommendations for fungal acne (Malassezia): https://simpleskincarescience.com/pityrosporum-folliculitis-treatment-malassezia-cure. I suffered from pityrosporum folliculitis for years. Taking fluconazole for a few months is the only thing that finally cured it. I recommend checking the ingredients in your skincare to make sure they don’t trigger/feed fungal acne. The products I use successfully are: Aquanil cleanser, Glaxal Base moisturizing cream, Differin, squalane oil. If you’re open to trying a pyrithione zinc product, I highly recommend Free & Clear Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, which is fragrance free and non-irritating https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WD8YQKL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_BZJYCb873DHQV. You’ll wash your face with it, leaving it on for 5-10 min. and then wash off. Good luck, and I’m happy to answer more questions.

I know it's not the active ingredient you asked for, but Vanicream makes a good zinc pyrithione shampoo that might be worth trying?

u/walmartslayer · 1 pointr/malehairadvice

Wash once every three days with sulfate free shampoo (and don't use any other shampoos) so that it will have more moisture and not be so puffy/frizzy. (I like this brand a lot: https://www.amazon.com/Vanicream-Medicated-Anti-Dandruff-Shampoo-sensitive/dp/B06WD8YQKL/). But if it's a day when you're not shampooing, make sure you still rinse you're hair out every night, especially if you put product in it.

Don't comb your hair at all. When you style it, get your head soaked and let it air dry with a dab curl activator spread through out (DevaCurl works wonders btw). If you towel dry, it will make it frizzy. Don't guide your hair to a specific direction, let it do its thing.

Source: we literally have the exact same type of hair. When I wake up in the morning, it looks like yours. But when I style it, I can easily get it to look like the second pic.

PS: The cut is definitely important. I like to have a taper on the sides like you do but a little longer. I keep the top front hair to be the longest part. As for the top/back of my head, I like for it to taper into the sides and taper into the top front.
