Hello Christine and everyone else, So I have a question.... I have had a bad scalp for so long and a Doc said it was SD like so many other stories on here. I have tried literally everything under the son from shampoos to liquids etc. After reading this site I went out and bought ACV and a bottle to use to pour on the scalp. I mixed half ACV and half water and also added 2 drops of Peppermint Oil that I read about it's benefits in another site for the scalp and hair growth. I got in the shower and applied the mixture which actually felt good on my scalp! As I was allowing it to soak in as directed, the fumes from the ACV began to almost choke me! I could not breath and began to cough a lot, I opened the bathroom door to get more ventilation which seemed to help. I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem? Also, after my hair dried my sclap seemed to be peeling off very badly like the condition worsened. I want to give it a shot and try again as that maybe my scalp needed another treatment. What do you guys think? Thanks, Courtney

I just stumbled upon this website the other day and after reading all the fantastic results ACV had when curing dandruff, I rushed out and grabbed a bottle. I started the treatment last night. I couldn't find a spray bottle, so I just poured a bit on my damp hair. I waited several minutes, then rinsed it out, then shampooed as usual. When I got out of the shower, my hair felt quite a bit cleaner, but once it dried it felt dirtier. Not greasy, really, but I dunno, like I could almost feel all the flakes when I touched my hair, and they started falling out way easier. I was a bit worried. Was this just another treatment that I would try and try and get no results? I held my ground and tried again tonight, except this time I used a spray bottle and diluted it with water. Same results. Are these results actually showing that my hair is improving getting rid of these annoying flakes? Is this how it is supposed to be?

Please help. I'm so sick of suffering from this. I've had it for a while now, but lately it's just been so much worse. About a year ago I had a tamer version of what I have got going on with my dandruff now, and I was able to get rid of it all by just using tea tree oil and t-gel shampoo. I tried this a couple months ago when I noticed problems again, but it only seemed to make things worse. I then tried nizoral, but that made things much, much worse. So, please, please help. I will be very grateful for any feedback. Thanks.
