    I have small white flakes in my hair, but I also have these big greasy kind of translucent flakes. The bigger flakes seem to peel directly off my scaIp. I don't know what the cause is- is it just dandruff, dermatitis, or could it be from minoxidil foam? Are there different treatments for each one or is just a good dandruff shampoo sufficient? Thank you!

    try a shampoo with ketoconazole it - it's good for treating fungal infections which it sounds like you may have - the scalp is sensitive so when you have a lot of stuff going on your scalp you can easily get inflammation and infections. Let us know how it goes.
