Brief Answer: use Nizral shampoo Detailed Answer: Hello, Dandruff occurs due to fungal infection of the scalp. This requires careful treatment. Initially, we begin treatment with topical Nizral shampoo every alternate days in a week for the fungus to be washed away. Then you can repeat the shampoo twice in a week, followed by weekly once. Also, you must condition your hair well to prevent the fungus formation. For this, oil your regularly. Do not shampoo dry hair. Use a good conditioner to your hair. With effective treatment, you should be fine soon. Regards,
