Any home remedies to get rid of this or at least lesson the dry scalp? I have been using Neutragena shampoo for dandruff and only works ok.

  • okay.. there are two things you have to find out first... how big are the flakes? FIRST try shampooing twice and really scrubbing your scalp.. keep conditioners off the scalp and limit the amount of product you use on your hair. this can cause flakes, but it's from product build up.. not dandruff.

    Dandruff is actually a medical condition that is caused by a fungi called Malassezia. The only way to really cure it, is to seek a physician. It is highly contagious and shouldn't be treated in the home any different than you would treat lice.
