Have dandruff even after washing hair. Oil application causes pimples. Need solution

Hello Sir/Ma am, I am suffering from lots of dandruff on the next moment of the hair dry after wash(even after using costly shampoo s & conditioners). I don’t apply oil to the hair every day (just once/twice a week 8-9 hours before hair wash), as it results into the acne/pimple on the face. Does not applying oil to the hair results into white hair..? Please provide me solution to get rid of this dandruff problem and white hair. Your response will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Hi, thanks for posying your query

you are seeking a solution for dandruff and white hair . I shall try to help you

For dandruff apply a long contact lotion like noskurf overnight and wash with a mild shampoo next day . use it every alternate days , once the dandruff decreases, apply it twice a week and then once a week .However it is not possible to get rid of dandruff completely .

white hair result from lack of pigment formation within the hair follicle, it is not related to oiling of hair. so you dont need to apply oil as you develop acne. Apply a conditioner after shampooing as an alternative to oiling

For white hair you may take calcium pantothenate tablets by prescription

Hope this solves your query
