Dry Scalp

Hey everyone!

I used to constantly get sick and would often have blood in my stool. About 10 years I really cleaned up my diet (I now eat mostly gluten free, dairy free, grain free, etc., but I may cheat a little on the weekends) and everything changed... except for my dry scalp. In fact, I feel as though it may have gotten worse? I almost never use shampoo. I try not to use gel (but believe it or not, that helps keep the flaking to a minimum!?) My hair is also super thick.

I know this the Paleohacks forum, but I was hoping someone would have some insight! I still feel it might be the little bit of sugar I may consume on the weekends, but I'm not sure. When I do have sugar, my face does get a little red and dry.

Again, any insight would be most welcome!!

Argan oil may help you....it's a really good, natural oil that can moisturize the hair and scalp.


I have also heard of tallow being using. I have a cousin that has a dry, flaky scalp and he's uses a little bit of the Eucalyptus & Tea Tree Butter Balm from Balm of Gilead...it is an all natural, grass-fed tallow balm sold by AllNaturalBalm.


A little bit goes a long ways, as it spreads really well and is absorbed quickly by the skin. If you find it to be greasy, then you've used too much.

 Hope that helps!

Thank you! I will look into both argon oil and tallow.

I am also going to cut out eggs and bacon for a month or two. (I probably have one egg a day and two slices of bacon)

Your advice is much appreciated :) :)
