Look at the ingredients on the back of you shampoo bottles. If you see ammonium lauryl sulfate. I suggest to discountinue use. Ammonium Lauryl sulfate. Is what they use to make the shampoo soapy. This causes dandriff, itchy skin, and burning. If will be hard to find a product with out this ingredient. Because 95% of shanmpos contains this. I would try looking for organic
I've heard that apple cider vinegar 1/2 cup diluted in 1/2 cup water will help. Another idea is to get a shampoo that is fragrance-free. Make sure you are drinking 8 glasses of water per day.
Dandruff can be associated with imbalanced scalp conditions. Many people have tried medicated shampoos and other nautral products (herbs). Imbalanced scalp conditions can also come from scalps that are over oily, and this was my problem, so i tried using a shampoo that treats oily hair, and this worked for me. My problem was not dry scalp, but rather over oily scalp and caused an imbalance so applying shampoo for oily hair worked on my hair...now i am dandruff free!!!
The answer and only answer to dandruff is to REMOVE THE CAUSE OF IT not just keep having to get it out of your hair and as much off your scalp as possible. Remove the fungus that is killing your scalp's skin cells. Use Nizoral shampoo. It's about $13 cad for a small bottle here but you only need to use it every now and then and it's good for 10- 30 treatments; depending on hair length, personally with long hair I just focus on covering my scalp not the full length of my hair. At the canadian website you can get a decent coupon and some free samples to try. Hope it hold true for the US to. You'll be convinced after using. Use your other favorite shampoo/conditioner for quite along time in between occasional treatments. You won't need luck on this one and you won't be chasing flakes anymore!
