I remember growing up in the Bronx, New York and being a city kid, we were always on the go. I don’t think there was ever a weekend where I was just sitting home doing nothing. However, I had an unpleasant surprise coming back from the park when one of my class mates told me that I had flakes on the back of my shirt. I remember thinking, “what are flakes” and where are they coming from? Back then I had no clue as to what dandruff was or even how to get rid of it.
Like most girls, I practiced good hygiene and washed my hair almost everyday, so why would I have flakes? What I discovered is that the dandruff or flakes are seborrheic scurf that forms on the scalp and comes off in small scales, so it’s not the hair that needs the attention, you have to treat the root. So, I decided to try some shampoos that were specifically made to get rid of dandruff to no avail. I was getting really discouraged, and just managed the issue as best I could by trying different combinations of dandruff shampoos and even coming up with home remedies such as lemon juice and rubbing alcohol. By the way, I wouldn’t recommend it. Not only will you burn your scalp, the combinations of smells is undesirable. What was I thinking?
It wasn’t until I was in my 20’s that finally help came. It was the best beauty advice I ever received and it came from my hair stylist in Richmond, Virginia. As the stylist was blow drying my hair she noticed that my scalp was extremely dry and as a result there were flakes flying everywhere, but I could have told her that. She asked me if I had ever used Sea Breeze on my scalp and I responded, “I thought Sea Breeze was for blemishes on your face”? She said “yes, but it works wonders on your scalp.” She shampooed again and this time rinsed my hair with the entire 6 ounce bottle of Sea Breeze. I felt a little tingle and my scalp felt refreshed. I continued to shampoo with Sea Breeze for a month and like magic 10 years later, I am still flake FREE!
Who would have guessed that shampooing with a bottle of Sea Breeze would cure dry scalp, but it worked great for me. However, I would caution you to do a test patch to make sure you don’t have a negative reaction from using Sea Breeze on your scalp. Sea Breeze can be purchased at any drug store or retailer for less than $5.00.
