Dandruff keeps coming bac

Dandruff comes back in 48 hours. No matter what shampoo I use. Is there a 100% cure for dandruff or are all cures temporary?

Greetings. Seborrhoea capitis/ seborrhoiec dermatitis or dandruff is a chronic problem. Please note. Avoid using oils on scalp. This acts as food for  fungus causing dandruff. You can apply it only at the hair part and not the scalp for short durations if you wish to.  Secondly wash hair with antifungal / low strength corticosteroid based shampoos. Use maintenance shampoos regularly. You may need a course of oral antifungals if your condition is severe. See a dermatologist near you. Following the above measures may help you keep dandruff at bay. Hope this helps. Warm regards
