I tried many anti-dandruff shampoos, but they are not giving a good result. Do you know any natural methods to get rid of dandruff? of Please suggest any good anti-dandruff shampoo.

You can try the head and shoulder shampoo or try the kerastase anti dandruff shampoo. If it doesn't work, try this. Massage the coconut oil on your scalp and leave for 30 minutes to an hour before taking a shower. Then use the anti dandruff shampoo for everyday use. You need also have a one month hot oil for dandruff, it works for me. I guess you are stressful and depression or sleep late, these are the cause of dandruff.

I read an article in a famous women's magazine about dandruff. It says that coconut oil will only give a feeling that dandruff is decreases as soon as we apply it, but it is actually bad for head and it will start ativating dandruff. I also heard from some of my friends that had and shoulders shampoo has some content which is not good for head.

The treatment actually depends on the type of dandruff. Yes - dandruff happen when you scalp is extremely dry or when your scalp is too oily (heard of acnes caused due to oil dandruff??). If you have a dry scalp oil is the best treatment. For oil dandruff of course oil is not the best remedy so you can try rinsing your hair with lemon juice. Dry dandruff means your scalp need more moisturizing where as it is the other way for oily dandruff.

i heard aloe vera is a good natural method to get rid of dandruff but in your case i think you really need to consult a dermatologist, like another said it could be caused by fungal infection and would need certain tests, she could prescribe you a better shampoo fit for you condition,my brother had the worst dandruff before after seeing a doctor he was diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis and give coal tar shampoo hes all better now :)

The first thing you need to do is stop using any oily products like styling gels or anything.You can use hair oils but make sure you thoroughly wash it away. Head and shoulders is very effective. If the dandruff is too much then go for the intense Head and Shoulders. The most effective natural method will be massaging your head with lemon juice. Cut the lemon into half and squeeze it onto your head and rub it onto the areas with dandruff.After you massage thoroughly leave it for about an hour. Now wash it your hair.You will have a dandruff free and shiny hair.

Had that dandruff problem before so I consulted with a dermatologist. It actually depends if you're dandruff is due to a fungal infection. You can have your scalp tested first. Its called KOH smear. I was prescribed to use Nizoral Shampoo for 2 weeks. Then to use Clear or Head and Shoulders Shampoo from then on. My derma said its good for the scalp because it has zinc. If your dandruff are those dark patches...you need to use Selenium Sulfide (selsun blue) on the area that has patches..leave it there 15 minutes before you take a bath...Do this for 2 to 3 days only. Hope this helps. :D
