Help for ‘Severe Dandruff’ from Aveda and Saini Herb
from Mike

Hello:  I have visited your website many times but never posted.  I do not have psoriasis but I do have an extremely flaky scalp and it had been that way for years.  I finally found a regimen that has cleared it up.  I use Aveda “all sensitive” shampoo and have recently ordered a product called Saini Herb.  I was hesitant to post because you might think I am working for the company that makes this product.  They say it is good for hair loss and dandruff.  I don’t know how good it is for hair loss, but in the two weeks I have been using it, it has done wonders for my dandruff.

It has cleared my dandruff.  My scalp still itches a little but it doesn’t flake.  I just wanted to let you and whoever else know. 

I ordered a “free” sample — they charge about $11 for shipping but it was worth it for me.  I hope you find this information helpful and if you do order please let me know what you think.  I am the only person I know who has ever used it so I’d be curious to see if it works for just me or others too.  I only use it once a day and I dilute it with water.  It itself is watery but I use about a 50/50 ratio of water to product.  Anyway, hope this helps.  You can check out the website at http://www.sainiherb.com.  -Mike


Ed’s Response:  Thanks for the tips, Mike.  The Aveda All-Sensitive Shampoo is described as a non-allergenic product with “three extremely mild cleansing agents from coconut” at Aveda.com (link above).  Among the ingredients listed at SainiHerb.com (link above) is camphor, which may help reduce itching.  I’d be interested in hearing from any psoriatics who have tried these products.  -Ed
