Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 May 2019
I am so thankful I tried this product!! I had very bad Dermatitis on my scalp which was causing sores and my hair to fall out from the follicle due to the stress. I was looking for a product which would remove the flakes without inflaming my scalp further and it is very effective. It is even more effective when used with other products and preventative measures.

For those suffering from an inflamed scalp particularly Psoriasis or Dermatitis here is my own treatment plan which I have had much success with (Please note I am not a doctor);

-Use Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo a few times a week to remove the worst of the flakes (It really helps shift them- I had big painful patches of these which were hardened lumps of skin and after 2 applications I already see a BIG difference)
-I used steroid (hydrocortisone) cream on the worst patches of skin once hair is dry (Dry on a cooler heat so not to irritate the scalp. Or let your hair dry naturally for as long as possible)
-I apply hemp oil to my whole scalp at night (make sure its organic and cold pressed preferably) and wear a hair net (shower cap, wig cap etc will do)
The hemp oil takes the itch away straight away. The hair net allows your scalp to breathe but keeps it moist and warm so that the hemp oil can soothe your scalp overnight. You will need a net otherwise the hemp oil could stain your pillowcases. Apply the hemp oil mask at night a few times a week or whenever you need to. Its easiest at night as it will leave your hair extremely oily, although if in discomfort apply during the day also.
-In the morning wash the hair with the Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo. It recommends doing this 2-3 times a week on the bottle and will remove more of the excess Hemp Oil from the evening before.

~Don't use steroid cream for too long as it can thin your skin.
~Patch test the Hemp Oil if you have not used it before and leave behind your ear for 48 hours prior to test for a reaction. You do not have to dilute it and it is a safe product to use.
~Don't use Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo too often as it will dry your hair out. Use it 3 times a week.
~I use Dr Bronner'S Baby Castile Liquid Soap in between shampoos which doesn't irritate my scalp. It is the gentlest shampoo I have found so far.
~If you have dry ends from the use of the Neutrogena T/Gel then Apple cider vinegar is a good substitute for chemical conditioners, so is coconut oil. Apply after you have washed the shampoo out.
~Avoid alcohol and citrus based shampoos which can irritate your scalp further.
~Avoid colouring your hair when you are going through a flare- it will only make it worse.
~Your diet can also have a big impact on your health - your skin is your biggest organ!

I hope this helps someone suffering from these!
Helen :)
