How many of you ladies have dealt with these irritating symptoms? My skin has always been a bit sensitive, but lately it's just out of control! I've had to stop using regular shampoo (I use a solution of baking soda and water, followed by a 50% apple cider vinegar rinse), and I feel like I'm losing handfuls of hair every day (and I don't have thick hair). My scalp has also been very itchy and I've developed a case of dandruff that got a little better after the new regimen, but is still making me feel hesitant to leave the house! I know this is most likely from the hormones (I am not under any unusual stress lately), but I just need some reassurance. Better yet, if anyone has any ideas for a remedy, I'd love to hear it! I'm thinking of trying baby shampoo every other day or so, just because I know it's gentle. I'm not sure it will actually do anything to improve my condition.

Thanks for listening.

I have not, but I've had many friends and clients deal with that. So sorry you're going through it If it makes you feel any better I think I would rather have dandruff then the horrible tooth pain I had in the first trimester with both my kids.

You're right. It definitely could be worse. I should be grateful I'm not miserable! Did your friends/clients deal with this problem throughout their pregnancies, or was it just temporary? I'm definitely hoping for temporary.
