I’m not sure which makes me feel more self-conscious:
A scaly red rash on my face or dandruff flakes on my dark top?
Unfortunately, I suffer from both as do most of you.
I’m always on the lookout for something that will help my dandruff. OVer the years I’ve tried almost every anti-dandruff shampoo out there with some degree of effectiveness. Unfortunately they always leave my hair dry and brittle.
In the last half a year, I’ve been using my regular gentle shampoo with 1-2 drops of eucalyptus essential oil (read about eucalyptus oil for seb derm in this article) with some effect.
I the colder months, I could go 3 days before my scalp started to itch but in recent weeks, because of the humid Queensland summer, I needed to wash my scalp every 1.5 to 2 days!
By chance, I stumbled on The Blowout Professor on Youtube. Has anyone heard of him? He was talking about the double wash technique and a lightbulb went on in my head. Could this be the answer?!
I’ve tried it a few times and I’ve managed to pull my hair washing out to 3 days again despite 36 degree days and 90% humidity. Win!
The double wash technique is essentially washing your scalp with shampoo twice. You do everything else the same. It’s worth a try. It may help you.

My latest video is out at last! It’s about my skincare rules for seb derm. I go through your skincare regimen to protect your skin barrier and prevent seb derm.
See you next week!
