Thanks for writing to us.
To treat dandruff, you would get best results with ketoconazole based anti dandruff shampoo like triatop or keraglow AD. Use the shampoo every alternate days. Once the dandruff is under control, use the shampoo once in a week. As dandruff can lead to hair fall, once the dandruff is controlled your hair fall will reduce too.

As far as home remedies are concerned, using hot coconut oil with lemon juice, application of XXXXXXX cider vinegar, application of tea tree oil mixed in coconut oil or application of soaked and mashed fenugreek seeds may give results in mild dandruff.

Hope that answers your query. Take care
