    Default Hair Gel/Pomade For Styling Hair with Seborrheic Dermatitis

    Hey! I have hair that needs a little bit of styling when not wearing a hat, and I'm looking to switch from the current product I use (Kevin Murphy, green box, forget the name). Has anyone found a product they like?

    I found this article, however, the only ingredients I'm aware of is oil. http://www.menshaircutadvice.com/17-...-and-Aloe-Vera

    If your Kevin Murphy green box etc. works OK, why take the risk of changing to an unknown?

    Using different products to the ones you know are suitable carries the risk of all sorts of adverse reactions which, with something like SD, may have a very prolonged recovery period.

    I mean I have flakes in my hair, and I'm not sure if it's helping. It has a pretty lengthy ingredient list.

    Have you tried just straight, all natural Aloe Vera? Stuff dries pretty solid in hair.

    I have not! Is it too much, though? I like to not look greasy, and have some volume.

    Aloe Vera Gel will allow you to style your hair, just a little. The edible kind of Aloe Vera Gel has a pH of about 4.5, because citric acid is used as a preservative, which will make hair slightly strawlike. Adding about 1% baking powder will raise the pH to about 5.5, but then you have to keep the product in the frig, or it will oxidize and turn brown in a week or 2. Hair has a pH of about 7, but isn't affected by a pH down to about 5.5 -- anything lower than that is too low.
