Hi. This is my scalp routine I've been doing since I was a teenager. I used to put aquaphor in my scalp since I was a young child but I didn't like my hair being so greasy. Now every two days, in the morning, I vigorously massage baby oil in my hair to loosen the scales. I have a fine plastic comb to immeadiately comb out the scale. I rinse my hair with a moisturizing shampoo and lightly re-apply a little mixture of baby oil with a few globs of Tazorac. This keeps my scalp from drying out until I repeat this two days later. This works because my scale is ready to release after two days. Others may have a different time frame. Let me know if this helps.
