i think you have almost done every common tip you came across about your dandruff
but i am giving you information which may help you get rid of dandruff
1.wash your hair regularly
2.apply oil at night and the next day wash your hair(because it is better not to go out with oily hair as dust sticks to the hair )
3.certain conditioners also causes dandruff(think before you choose)
4.selsun lotion can be helpful ,talk to your doctor about this
5.using the same comb after hair wash carries the infection again so remember wash your comb each time you wash your hair
6.caps and scarfs also carry the infections so be careful
7.try to avoid hair dyes
8.stay away from hair styling gels and creams
9.try to get rid of dandruff first and later concentrate on hair growth (5%mintop lotion can help you with this)
application of lemon and vinegar helps you get rid of dandruff ,but your hair may turn dry so use it with caution

hope i answered your query
feel free to contact me for further queries
thank you
