Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Dandruff occurs due to oily skin , scalp infection . Dandruff in your case could be due to oily scalp.A shampoo is not just enough if dandruff is severe.I advise you to see a Dermatologist and he would prescribe you on examination the appropriate lotion like salicylic acid.Applying this will surely show good results.

Take care.
