Hello there...., I went through your query... Following these steps would help- try using antifungal shampoos daily or every other day until your dandruff is controlled; then cut back to two or three times a week, as needed.... If you tend to have an oily scalp, daily shampooing may help prevent dandruff.... A diet that provides enough zinc, B vitamins and certain types of fats may help prevent dandruff....Kindly consult Dermatologist for further advice...
