well its better if you use some home remedy like ,you can apply lemon or curd to your hair .it helps.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Packriswamy Sambangi's  Response
Hi,
Dandruff occurs due to infection by bacteria and fungus.
Do not use any branded shampoo.
Washing your hair with Green grams powder everyday. Apply shikakai paste is another remedy.

Hello sir. I am having severe dandruff problem since last couple of months. Normally I used to encounter seasonal dandruff. Whenever season changed, I used to get dandruff but that used to go away with a wash or two with anti-dandruff shampoo. This time, it has been almost an year but I am not able to get rid of it. Please suggest something.

Hi, i have dandruff and it usually comes and goes. But it also worsens. My dandruff comes in large flakes and even if it touches medicated shampoo it becomes extra dry. I think its seborrheic Dermatitis but its not exactly red. rather white. Flakes fall off easier too? What could it be? Just really bad dry scalp? And what treatment can i use? The more i shampoo the worse it gets...even if i shampoo one a week its still reacts, though not so much. I heard if i shave my head it will heal its self. Thats what some with similar experience inform me...recommendations?
