I have had white flaky particles on the ends of my hair. But only in one area of my head. I dont seem to have lice or dandruff . This is something that I just started to have on my hair in the last month. I have diabetes and have been eating alot of protein to keeps my carbs down. I thought at first that I might be geeting to much protein, I dont know what this is, can you tell me what it might be?
