    I used baking soda and water as a shampoo for a couple of months, rinsing with a little vinegar and my scalp was really healthy. I only wash my hair/scalp once-twice a week though.
  • In addition to the suggested shampoo, start working on the stress and anxiety - yoga, swimming, meditation, lots of different things work to help relieve stress. Talk to your doctor. I had a girlfriend who was so bad, she is now on medication - and now she feels much better. Managing your stress for your overall health is worth it! Your family needs you to live a long life!

    My dad added some baking soda to his shampoo and that cleared up his dandruff and itchy scalp problem.

    My scalp drives me crazy in the winter. There are some new shampoos I have found relief with made by Dove and Head and Shoulders. My biggest find was Argan oil. I had heard good things about it for dry and wiry hair, but, my scalp tends to be oily, but irritated and dry during the winter. When I read about it online, I decided to give it a try. I first massaged it into my scalp and left it in for an hour. Then I massaged my scalp again, using my fingertips, not my nails, brushed my hair really well, and then shampooed it. A couple of days later, I just lightly massaged my scalp with the oil before showering. It's a "dry" oil, so doesn't feel greasy. Then I shampooed my hair with my dry, irritated scalp shampoo. I only used conditioner on the ends of my hair, since it's very fine and tangles, and I didn't want any build up on my fresh feeling scalp. I've been using it a week now, and for the first time this winter, don't feel like pulling my hair out or shaving my head!

    Start taking Stress B- complex vitamins and get a shampoo with anti-oxidants and anti- inflammatory properties like the one in this link.

    How about baby shampoo or prescription shampoo? You might try hypoallergenic shampoo. There might be a shampoo with tea tree oil that soothes. I think I've seen it at Trader Joe's. Avalon makes a lovely, very gentle lavender shampoo that might just work too. Take your Vit C. It's good for easing allergies. Good luck.

    I would work on the stress, it might be time to talk to your doctor about some anti-anxiety medication. And during a particularly stressful period in my life, I used acupuncture twice a week. Yoga and meditation, visualization are all techniques you can use with guided tapes, dvds, books and even streaming TV like Giiam. I especially like the visualization technique where I see myself laying on a white beach with my feet in crystal blue water waves lapping at them, and the sun warming me. I also have some calming DVDs that I like .... tropical rain forest, running water, birds chirping.

    Get a shampoo with Tea Tree Oil. My husband had the same thing and it worked well. Didn't help stop the hair falling out but the dry itchy and red scalp healed. I had a dog that had skin problems and tried it on the dog and it worked when nothing else would.
