After i wash my hair it feels really sticky and it sticks together, i had the problem for 2 months now it goes and comes, after i wash it the next day the stickiness disappears but when i wash again the same thing happens i read that some fungal infections can secrete something like that on my hair, is there anyway to find out if i have a fungal infection by myself and how do i fix it

Hi Anon,

Try a rinse of 1 part Apple Cider Vinegar and 6 parts water on your hair after you shampoo. The apple cider vinegar acts as an astringent and clarifier for the hair (and is a homeopathic treatment for dandruff and minor fungal scalp infections). Use the ACV rinse every time you shampoo and condition for at least a week.

If this doesn't seem to work for you, then you may need to visit a dermatologist to prescribe something if it is a fungal infection-- try not to wait too long because some fungal infections can eventually lead to hair loss.

Best of luck to you!
