I have a client who has Seborrhea Dermatitis of the scalp. She has been using tea tree oil, rosemary as well as coconut oil. Products are not working. Does anyone know of any ingredients in a formula that might work? Thanks!

I tried everything for my dandruff (close to the same as seborrhea dermatitis thing from what I understand), and I found that the KGF serum plus a little white willow bark extract worked well. I also started using good 'ol dandruff shampoo (with pyrithione zinc) and I haven't had a single bit of recurrence since.

She might want to try plain sea kelp bioferment.

Girl paint what is your routine for that? How do you use it?
Do you put the serum on at night, wash it in the morning? Thank you

Just want to add a thought to those of you who are dealing with scalp issues/
I have had problems with scales that so covered my scalp that my derm prescribed an oily scalp treatment called Derma Smooth FS (very messy)which I was to apply at night and wash out in the am with a shampoo (don't remember name). ANYWAY, none of that really worked for me. I can't wash my ehtnic hair in the am and get to work on time so I adjusted accordingly and got minimal results. OH, he also prescribed OLUX foam for the itching. Why do I bore you with all these details???? I have used - exactly three times - a plain yogurt mask (15 mins) before shampooing, after shampoo follow up with a light coat of SeaKelp on the patchy areas. Yesterday, I went to get my hair done. My gal could not find a flake!!! Think about it. Oh and BTW, your scalp will think you sent it to a spa!!

Guin, what would you do without your white willow bark...

Just food for thought. When I added SKB to my shampoo I developed seb derm on the scalp. When I removed it after two weeks the seb derm went away. Not able to believe it, I added the SKB again after two weeks and it came back. I have no idea why this is because SKB is supposed to help - I must be unusual. Anyway, your friend might not want to go whole hog on the SKB experimentation until she's clear it works for her. Maybe just add a little bit at a time or something.
When I had seb derm on my scalp in the past I always found that regular use of a dandruff shampoo with pyrithione zinc (as Girlpaint said), helped. When I was living in Africa and couldn't get my hands on this because I was in a rural area and I was having a flare up, I added tea tree oil from my first aid kit to my shampoo and then rinsed my hair with diluted vinegar that I had in my cupboard. This worked for me. I think apple cider vinegar is supposed to be the best for this (although I used regular stuff).

You may have an allergy to sea kelp.
