Unclog "Clogged" Hair Follicles? How To Do It Right?

Post  FredtheBelgian on Tue Aug 09, 2011 10:07 pm

I see it on my hairline, where a hair is supposed to be, you know where there was a hair before, now, instead of the hair, I see, a little black dot, a blackhead I think, which I think is what we can call a clogged hair follicle, but, even if I read a lot that clogged pores has nothing to do with hair loss, I'm very disturbed by this black dot I see instead of a hair on mine.

So my question is: what can I do to make them go away, how do I do this right? thank you in advance Smile.

Some of the guys over at OMG's were using TCA peels on their scalps, which is way dangerous, IMO. TCA's can cause bad scarring, which is the opposite of what we want. We want to get rid of fibrosis, not increase it.

I tried bromelain on my scalp, and didn't feel like I was getting much of anything out of it (I can't get the bromelain powder to dissolve properly in any medium), so I started using on my scalp the same hydroxy acids I use on my face. I alternate 40% lactic acid and 5% salicylic acid every other week (that is, one or the other once per week). Women have reduced acne scars, unclogged their facial pores, and generally improved the integrity of their body skin with these acids for decades (thousands of years if you count the use of the whole foods like milk that the acids are derived from), so I reasoned why not for scalp?

I haven't been doing it long enough to get results (or definitively say it doesn't work) yet, but just thought I'd throw that out there, as the issue of fibrosis in hair loss (and possibly reversing hair loss by getting rid of fibrosis) is one that intrigues me.

Fred--this doctor recomends highly refined mineral oil to dissolve sebum plugs. I think Jojoba oil works in a similar fashion though.

This woman used a B5 gel (on her face) and says that the plugs were coming out all by themselves after 8 to 10 hours.

Do you think I can make my own B5 gel with the B5 powder contained in my B5 capsules? :p

Well--that would be something I would try--maybe mix it with water first and then mix that into some good aloe vera gel or something.

Fred--I've been digging into that healthboards site a little further to see if I could find out more information about the B5 gel - the brand is Acne Miracle b5 gel and apparently it is a 20% B5 preparation that has some niacinimide and biotin in it and it has some sort of oil in it too - that information could be helpful b/c the oil could be an oil that dissolves sebum, like the jojoba or mineral oil. The recommendation is to use is two or three times a week, overnight. I tried to find an actual list of the ingredients but couldn't find one.

I put the thing on my scalp, nose and other T-zone, on the blackheads, so let's see if it works, I have a pretty healthy skin/scalp so I hope it will help the blackheads to get out of my nose/front/scalp Smile. Thank you very much, I don't have much money right now so I'm gonna keep doing my own B5 gel with Aloe Vera Wink

Heck, I have most of those ingredients at home--except DMAE, niacinamide and manuka oil (but I have tea tree).
