Q. For several months now I have had a problem with a scaly flaky scalp. I finally went to the doctor who prescribed medicated shampoo and mometasone topical solution. Nothing worked. Then a friend suggested I try Miracle Whip. I rub it into my scalp and leave it in a couple of hours. It has worked wonders and I now have a flake-free scalp. Any idea why?
A. We checked the ingredients in Miracle Whip. They are: water, soybean oil, vinegar, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, modified food starch, egg yolks, salt, mustard flour, artificial color, potassium sorbate, spice, paprika, natural flavor and dried garlic. We can’t imagine why any of these compounds would clear the flakes from your scalp but others have praised Miracle Whip as a good hair conditioner.
