What ever you do, do not stand near an open flame...just kidding..sorry...I went through the same thing, amongst many other postpartum ailments...as far as I know, it's hormonal and until your bod levels itself out, you'll have to manage it. Try Neutrogena's "Clean" Shampoo (I think that's what it's called) or Charles Worthington's "Balancing" shampoo. THe charles Worthington one may be a bit tough to find (I can always find it at a Walgreen's near by...)But these worked well for me. Just be reaaal careful of the "claryfing" shampoos---the can be very drying and leave you with dry ends in addition to a greasy scalp! If you need to condition, use
a spray on detangler and leave the real deep conditioning for just once a week. If you lean towards more natural remedies, try any hair care product with peppermint- it has astringent properties that will help with the oils...body shop and burt's bees have some good ones...or make some super strong peppermint tea, get some cotton balls and massage the tea into your scalp. If anything, at least you will smell good! Anyways, hang in there and if you are still having problems, don't hesitate to talk to your doc. Often times, physical symptoms can be a manifestation of other problems. Good luck!
