My scalp is dry and scaly to a point I can pick the dry patches off my scalp. I also get a few for lack of a better word pimples but not tiny postules but a big almost like a lump kinda thing. Not many but from time to time,for the most part its just dry and flaky.
I use nizoral shampoo a few times a week,seems to work a bit but also makes my hair feel like straw. I am a male and starting to thin so its all the worse.
One thing I do notice is if I wash my hair in the morning, the scalp does no produce natural oil til much later in the day, around 5pm my hair starts to look semi normal/healthier. I have to shampoo everyday or my hair just lies flat and looks even worse.
Women are lucky, because male pattern baldness just intensifies the situation. I guess it could be worse, I am 47 and still have most of my hair,just starting to get a little thin.
