BALAKUBAK! My battle against dandruff.
« on: Oct 20, 2007, 11:53 PM »
Advertisement
I got rid of it but I had this problem like mga 1 year.  I tried all sorts of anti-dandruff shampoo - Gard, Head and Shoulders and Nizoral kaso bumabalik pa rin.  Sobrang tindi at desperado kong matanggal, pumunta ako ng Reyes Hair-cutters, Nagpascrub at nagpa-hot-oil din ako dun (take note, semi-kalbo ang gupit ko ha).  Nawala nga ang balakubak, puro sugat naman ang anit ko.  After 2 days, bumalik na naman 'yung dandruff - may libre pang sugat.

Sabi ng nanay ko, hindi daw ako nagbabanlaw ng ulo maigi. Pambihira, binabanlawan ko nga ng limang minuto 'yung ulo ko hanggang "squeeky clean" na wala pa rin.  Bumabalik pa rin 'yung dandruff.

Nagtanong ako sa doctor sa clinic namin ang sabi Ionamil.  Nde ko binili kase mukhang mamahalin.  Nagdadalawang isip ako kung magpapadermatologist ako, kaso mukhang mas mahal 'yun.

Meron ding mga alternative solutions 'yung messenger namin.  Kalamansi daw.  Sabi naman ng masahista namin, virgin coconut oil. Sabi naman nung isa pa naming masahista, "Sunsilk Blue," kaso wala na daw binebentang ganun ngayon.  Nung araw, 'yun daw talaga ang pang-tanggal ng dandruff.  Isip ako ng isip, ano 'yung "Sunsilk Blue..." Selsun Blue pala.

Ewan ko ba, ang dami kong pinagtanungan. Ang daming prescription, mukhang hindi naman effective.

It's really embarassing.  Kasi, baka isipin ng tao madumi ako sa katawan.

Until I found a cure...

Actually sa sobrang banlaw nyo po nakukuha yang balakubak, hindi advisable yung squeeky clean kasi mas lalong gragrabe. Your dandruff is the result of dryness na nag-flaflakes po yung scalp.
try nyo po 4 consecutive days before you go to bed...Virgin coconut oil or baby oil. massage nyo po sa scalp till covered, then try to observed nyo po kung nag-normalize na yung scalp condition nyo po.  :hello: this is what i do kapag pansin ko dry yung scalp ko at nag-flaflakes.
kapag ok na po, gawin nyo pong shampoo is Johnson baby shampoo which is Mild for the scalp at mabango pa amoy baby :hihi: and use it 3 to 4 times a week lang
it worked for me siguro po it may work sa inyo  :hello:

I use 1 tbsp. olive oil and 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise plus half teaspoon ng kalamansi. mix it all together apply ko sa scalp and hair then leave it for 30 minutes before shampooing. I do it at least once a month as a form of hot oil treatment.

By the way.  Hindi ako promoter ng product ah.  Pero effective talaga.  Ginagamit ko ngayon Clear.  No dandruff talaga.

^... hindi daw promoter.. :hihi:  
it's good to hear that you found the right shampoo.

share ko lang po... tungkol po kasi sa mga gamot ang course ko sa college...  

ang dandruff po, maraming causes... pwede pong dry scalp, pwede ring  bacteria, pwede rin pong oily scalp (because after some time of treating an oily scalp, flaking may occur)

kaya dapat po, pag pipili ng anti-dandruff shampoo (or alternative cure), yung naaayon po sa dahilan ng problema.  what may work for one person may not work for another.

sometimes,  just switching to another shampoo (even if it's not an anti-dandruff shampoo) can cure dandruff.  basta po yung shampoo kayang i-address yung condition ng scalp.

to prevent dandruff naman po, dapat po magpalit ng shampoo kapag nagbago na yung condition ng scalp... meron pong mga months na prone to dryness ang skin and scalp, and meron namang months na nagiging oily.  hindi po pwedeng parehong shampoo ang gamitin dito.

mahirap nga lang po makahanap ng right shampoo for a scalp condition... madalas, trial and error po talaga...

I agee with sapphrene. Susuportahan ko lang sinabi niya.

Actually from what I know of is that dandruff is the layman's term for excessive shedding of the scalp's skin. In short, sobrang "libag" ng scalp. It is normal for some flaking to occur as the topmost layer is continuously replaced by new skin cells underneath. But excessive shedding or dandruff is not. Which brings us to the next question, what causes this?

One cause is infection, usually fungal, less commonly head lice. That is why we have the most commonly prescribed antifungal shampoos, such as Nizoral and Head and Shoulders, Gard, Clear.

Another group of cause is your allergies (seborrheic dermatitis) and autoimmune diseases (psoriasis). One thing common to these two diseases, is too much immunity. In short, your body's defense system (immune system), as a reaction to different factors (trigger factors) as extremes of temperature (too much heat), chemicals (shampoos-even antidandruff), stress (emotional, physical) and etc (yup,pwedeng kahit ano) rapidly kill the skin cells of the scalp resulting to a rapid cell turnover (kasi ang mga libag are actually dead skin cells).

So how do you treat your dandruff? First know the cause. It's the dermatologist who would take a sample of your scalp skin to know if this is fungal or not. Kung ayaw naman, then trial and error na. If it turns out to be not because of fungi (sabi ng derma or di umuubra ang nizoral, head and shoulders, etc) then, it must be a form of allergy or psoriasis (being the former the most common).

If it's allergy then, look for the trigger - seasonal changes, your current shampoo, stress, etc. So, look for the right shampoo (the one you won't have any reaction with), avoid stress, avoid too much humidity, heat or cold, etc.

Finally, nizoral contains ketoconazole, while head and shoulders & pantene pro-V contains zinc pyrithione. I would assume Clear has the latter component, too (check na lang). But studies say its ketoconazole that's better.

Yes, may pagka trial and error talaga.  Even my derma prescribed several anti-dandruff shampoo for me.  Papalit-palit din.  Right now, Clear seems to be working for me fine.  Pag medyo severe, I use Nizoral.  For a while, Head and Shoulders is ok for me.

Teka, di na ba uso ang Selson Blue?   :D

winter baby ang anak ko at dahil asian tayo hindi nakadesign ang balat natin sa sobrang lamig so nagkaron siya ng rashes sa mukha dahil sobrang dry at halos patchepatche sa buong katawan at dahil ang ulo ay may balat din naturalmente dry din skin nya dun, para sa mukha at katawan binigyan cya ng emolient, pero para sa ulo ang sabi ng Dr. ay extra virgin olive oil... yup... ung nasa kitchen nyo, kasi medyo kumunot ang noo ko eh kasi inisip ko  baka may special n extra virgin olive oil para sa balat hindi ung pangcooking kasi newborn siiya eh... pero hindi, yun talagang nasa kitchen  ... at opo effective ito ... kalbo din baby ko eh kaya after ligo apply ng olive oil, awa naman ng Diyos ok na cya at malamang pagbumalik ngayong winter, yan uli gagamitin namin.

isa pa kaya ko shinare sa inyo ung ginagamit ng baby ko eh ito na ata ang pinakamurang effective na gamot sa balakubak... kelan mo pa ba mauubos ung isang maliit na bote ng extra virgin olive oil sa murang halaga lang (cguro wala pang 100 pesos yun) at available pa sa lahat ng supermarket sa buong mundo...

Ito sa akin simple lang,
kahit anong klasing shampoo pwedi basta ganito ang opinion ko naman:

- According sa nabasa ko nong napadaan ako sa national bookstore, medyo matagal na 'yon nong nasa pnas pa ako, pag may balakobak daw indikasyon yon na insufficient ang vitamins mo sa buhok.  hindi ko na matandaan kung vitamin C, or A not sure (?). at kung minsan nan lalagas pa after that.

-  Pag nag apply ka nang shampoo kunti lang and you have to mix with small amount of water just enough to cover your scalp para hindi matapang. Then, i apply agad evenly sa scalp at wag patagalin banlawan agad kc ang purpose lang naman luminis ang buhok, then apply small amount of hair conditioner and that's it. whatever type of brand.  At please, wag gumamit nang sabon, kc sabon is formulated para sa balat at hindi sa buhok and Shampoo is for hair talaga.

For me its practical and very effective.  Kaya buhok maintain talaga.

    Apr 18, 2017, 03:09 AM
  • MPeralejo: Very bad management service. I purchase unit in the 18th floor with expected turn over on 4/2016 which was delayed until 2017. I was told that the balance has to be paid off before turn over in January 2017 and paid the balance in full 3/9/17 with request to expedite. The same with my mother in-law's unit at 15th floor which was paid 2 weeks before mine. Until now, they will not turn over the unit and can only provide excuses that the engineering dept. is working on it. My aunt who is our representative/interior designer only has till May 14th to stay in the Philippines to get the units ready for my vacation in Jun 1st but they are now telling me that the turn over will be May 22, 2017 plus 1 week. They have receive our money since 3/9 and my mother in-laws in February, yet they want more than 3 months to turn over. By then, i am out of representative/interior designer that I would have to hire another and not only that, my family and I will not have a place to stay on our vacation therefore, i would need to rent elsewhere. SMDC is not willing to cover my losses nor do they know the meaning of "EXPEDITE". This company is a scam! They want your money and not willing to deliver on time. Is the government not regulating this kind of SCAM! I would rather receive a full refund than deal with this company. Don't buy from SMDC. It will be a nightmare for you!
