Hello Abhinaya,
thanks for writing in.

Dandruff is a very common and frustrating problem.

The good news is that it can be controlled very efficiently with minimal medication. The bad news is that there is no permanent remedy.

Your hair care routine is good ( no oil, daily washing). Continue with it.

Along with this use a medicated anti fungal shampoo like 8X shampoo twice a week.

If the dandruff is moderate to severe, you may use Clotrimazole+Betamethasone lotion daily at night for 2 weeks.

This will give you good relief.
