How to get rid of scalp acne causing bald spots

Scalp acne occurs when skin has been neglected to a very large extent. However, it is not common for scalp acne to cause bald patches. You have to be certain that your bald patches are being caused by the scalp acne before you begin to try treatments to cure the same. In most cases, the acne is caused due to excessively oily hair combined with improper care of the scalp and hair. If your hair is excessively oily, it is important to ensure that you are maintaining a clean scalp with it too. This will help out to a very large extent. The first myth that you must shatter is that you cannot or may not wash your hair daily. This is not only incorrect; it is also not good for your scalp. In cases of those who have an excessively oily scalp, this is actually required in order to maintain good scalp and hair health. The only thing is that you must make sure you are using a mild shampoo that is formulated for everyday use. You should not be using an anti dandruff shampoo. This is actually the worse thing you could do with scalp acne. Anti dandruff shampoos are not only extremely harsh; they also have a tendency to only show effects as long as they are on their hair. Which is why most people who sue them notice that they need to wash their hair more frequently and yet do not get positive results.

Using a hair pack about once or twice a week to begin with will help you greatly. Once your condition improves with daily hair washing, you can use a hair pack as well. It should take about a week for your condition to improve. To make a hair pack, use a mixture made of Fuller's Earth, lime juice and rose water. Apply this evenly to your hair and scalp. You will feel the difference after one use only. After that, you can use it once a week as a rule and more frequently if you like. However, remember that if you are using it more than once a week, use less lime juice and more rose water. This is because while lime juice is a great cleanser, it is also harsh in nature and can actually weaken your hair strands if used excessively. Follow these methods as a part of your daily and weekly routines. Your scalp acne will disappear and fresh hair will also emerge.
