Head & Shoulders works just fine.

Now, when DD was about 9 or 10, I thought she had bad dandruff, so while at the dermatologist for other reasons, I asked the doc to look at her head, and it wasn't dandruff. She just wasn't washing all the shampoo out of her hair and it was shampoo flakes. Ew.

I don't remember the ratio but basically a mix of ACV and water.  After shampooing you rinse with the acv/water mixture.

Tea tree oil in your shampoo helps, but make sure that your shampoo doens't have chemicals / toxins in it that can counteract the benefits of the oil.  My daughter had this problem and started using a shampoo with tea tree oil in and and it went away and the shampoo leaves her hair feeling so soft and looking healthy!

I read you can crush 2 aspirins and put it in the shampoo you'll use each time.  I don't know if that works though.
Also you can wash with baking soda instead of your shampoo for a few weeks.  I have not done either of these though.
