Dandruff is common nowadays. It is due to a combination of factors like oily scalp. Fungus normally present on scalp in the presence of oily scalp in presence of oily skin dead skin forms fungal infection called dandruff.
You can only cotrol it by using anti dandruff shampoos.
These contain ketaconazole or coaltar.
Regular use is a must
This can cotrol the disease but not cure it
Oil application to scalp may worsen it. Hence try to avoid.
Thanks for asking and have a healthy day
