You need to manage the dandruff in a different manner.1st oil your scalp well with some oil you are comfortable with,then use a comb and comb out the scalp and hair well so that the dandruff flakes out.wait for half hour,then bathe your hair using anti-fungal shampoo(this is actually a fungal infection) like scalpe lotion or Danclear or Conaderm.Apply this to scalp,wait a minute then wash out the shampoo well.The important advise you must remember is to use a fresh towel,fresh comb and fresh pillow covers after each application of shampoo.From these you can otherwise get re-infected.Do this twice will be relieved.
