Dr. Debra Jaliman, MD (Dermatologist) answered

Dandruff is composed of dead skin cells that haven't exfoliated properly and accumulate on the scalp. When they accumulate, they can make your scalp feel very itchy and can flake off on your clothes giving you that dreaded dandruff look.

There are many effective over-the-counter shampoos that contain zinc pyrithione, including Head & Shoulders and DHS Zinc shampoo. Zinc pyrithione has antifungal and antibacterial properties that reduce symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis (a common condition where oily areas of skin becomes inflamed and produce flaky scales).

Tar shampoos are effective because they cause shedding of the top layer of the skin and decrease the itchiness of the scalp. Shampoos that contain tar include Tera-Gel Tar Shampoo, Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo and Polytar AF. You shouldn't use tar shampoos, however, if you have blonde hair because they will stain and darken lighter shades of hair.

Ketoconazole shampoo is also very effective, as it relieves scaling and prevents the growth of fungus. Over-the-counter shampoos that contain ketoconozale include Nizoral and RegenePure DR Scalp Treatment.

All of these products can work well, but I'd recommend that someone suffering with dandruff start with Head & Shoulders shampoo or Nizoral. These shampoos are mild and are excellent starting tools to alleviate dandruff.

In much more serious cases, prescription shampoos are necessary. Many prescription shampoos contain steroids and should only be used if prescribed by a doctor.

and it's not just the use of special products, when you wash your hair, use finger tips or knuckles if you have long nails and massage the entire scalp for 2 minutes. This gets the product(s) into the skin well. And rinse well. Left over product(s) will dry up on the scalp and cause more dryness and itchiness and dandruff.

I have acute dandruff problem since childhood. Couple of years back I discovered an Indian Ayurvedic product called SUHAGA. Looks like coarse salt, 2 table spoons of SUHAGA powder and 3 table spoons of any hair oil. Mix together in a bowl but you will see SUHAGA settles at the bottom of the bowl. Using your finger tips rub this mix on your entire scalp. Let it stay for 30-45 minutes. The scalp will itch a little. Rinse and wash with shampoo and conditioner. You will see the magic in one use. Once or twice a week application of SUHAGA will get your scalp rid of dandruff for years. I have used this and believe me I am dandruff free. I done need any anti dandruff shampoos anymore.

I didn't see this mentioned but dandruff is a fungus and it is contagious. You need to wash your combs and brushes with the dandruff shampoo as well. Otherwise it'll keep coming back. Hence all the products on the market...

Another solution i have --> empty a quarter of your shampoo (whatever it is) add max of 2 table spoons of vinegar to the shampoo, smell the shampoo and make sure it doesnt smell of vinegar  , shake well and use it on ur hair a couple of days , and you wouldn't find anymore dandruff

As Dr. Jaliman suggested, I used Nizoral for about two weeks solid of washing my hair every other day, and it cleared it up. Now I use it once every couple of weeks just to maintain. Love the stuff.

I've also used Head & Shoulders as well as Neutrogena's T/Gel shampoo and they've both worked wonders for my dandruff!

Ummm, I've basically used Head & Shoulders, most of my life, just because I didn't want to over think about shampoos, easy as that, BUT...the thing with H&S is that, the moment you stop using it, the dandruff appears, and it just...SUCKS, because, when I wanted to use any other shampoo, it just kept appearing, and it's awkward, the flaky thingys and blah...well, I just recommend to ask a dermatologist and see if you can use an special shampoo until dandruff disappears and you could use any othe shampoo you like :D

I've tried Head and Shoulders, and that definitely didn't do ANYTHING! But try that first, if that doesn't work try one of the Neutrogena ones.  I used the scalp build up one (it's different bc it has salicilic acid instead of prythozone zinc).  I used that for a while, but my dandruff came back.  Then I tried baby shampoo and it worked so much better! and didn't dry out my hair as much, I also went to the demotologist and are currently using drops on my head. they smell like alcohol :(

Why not trying natural solutions instead of all those chemicals on your skin. Your skin "eats" all the chemicals and thus, so do you. Maybe you could consider rinsing your hair with apple cider vinegar diluted in water (1/10) after washing your hair with a mild shampoo. You can then geltly massage your scalp for a minute or so, et voilà. The vinegar smell will vanish once your hair is dried. It's pretty natural and inexpensive! Try it for a couple of times and notice the difference. It's good for you and the environment and it's not good for the dandruff and the industry ;)

Great suggestion! I agree, to many people and "experts" suggest chemicals. So horrible!!
mckenziedove commented
I have horrible dandruff- the only thing that helps is a regular apple cider vinegar rinse! Plus with a little baking soda it cleans my hair better than most shampoos and my scalp doesn't get oily quickly, oil irritates dandruff.
DiamondsAndPearls answered
Don't use any products with sodium laurel/laureth sulfates they're horrible for scalps! Try to find an all natural or organic shampoo/ conditioner. You can find scalp scrub recipes online too which are great. Aloe vera on your scalp before bed is seriously soothing to any dry skin or any other scalp inflammation problems. 
I also like to do a hot almond oil treatment once a week ( but you can it more if you'd like) Just wash it out really good so you're look fabulous and not oily.
I've had scalp issues my entire life and these have really helped heal my scalp and make my hair go from seriously dry to extremely soft, vibrant and luscious.

my name is Robin Jane. I am really pleased with this service.

I never in a million years would have thought I'd be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Andrew in one of our stupid,fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.i read a testimony by a man called Taylor Borg about him saying that how dr. Trust help him to get back is EX wife within 48n hours.I quickly email him.and also get back my husband with his love spell. And when I was at my most desperate,he didn't take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don't know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!!
