We asked our friends on Facebook for their tips on managing seborrheic dermatitis. Here’s what they said:

    1. I wash my hair every other day with L’Oreal EverStrong Sulfate-Free Shampoo. Once a week I use Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo and once a month, an apple cider vinegar rinse.
    2. My son had a severe case of seborrheic dermatitis. We applied baby oil in the bath and used a baby comb flat to the scalp to nudge and loosen flakes.
    3. Neutrogena T/Gel Shampoo followed by regular shampoo and conditioner.
    4. Baking soda shampoo is the only thing that works for me! One tablespoon of baking soda to one gallon of water. I mix it in an old (well rinsed) milk jug.
    5. I use Head & Shoulders Shampoo — not one problem since!
    6. Neutrogena T/Sal Shampoo! It worked for my daughter and is odorless.
    7. Mine only affects my face. I use Vanicream products and ketoconazole mixed with locoid lipocream.
    8. Ducray products for sensitive scalp for my son. Works great!
    9. I use coconut oil for just about everything — pre- washing, etc. Also try a few drops of tea tree oil in some coconut oil and apply to the scalp periodically!
    10. I use McArthur Scalp Care Shampoo and Conditioner, it works great for me.
