A mega-dose of a non water soluble vitamin would work great since you can store it in fat - like vitamin A. However, vit C and zinc are water soluble so you'd just pee out the excess and be deficient again in a few days without a regular dose. (more)

Some things to try: Coconut oil or olive oil before shampoo. Reduce the amount of baking soda you are using. I use a tablespoon to a cup of water but I think less would work. Try making sure you don't put the baking soda right on your scalp. ... (more)

What are you eating before bed? Night sweats can be related to low blood sugar at night. Maybe some protein or something before bed to keep things even during the night.
