Its called t-gel (tge shampoo that looks darkish brown) it does work good, or try denorex extra strength (it doestnt burn like selsom blue, it just has a sligjt cool minty tingle. Ive and what I thought was dadruff most of my life but I found out that dandruff is actually a scalp condition that is caused by a natural bacteria that grows on ur scalp and u can use oils like tea tree, and eucaliptus to kill it and calm/get rid of dadruff. But u could just have dry scalp which is different. Try drinking more water (even tho we all have to pee more we still need drink lots...lol) and u cal try oil treatments like puting coconut, jojoba, almont, or even penut oils with vitamin E on ur scalp and let it soak for about 20 min then gently with light shampoo wash it out of the hair bit dont scrub it out of ur scalp if u can help it the condition from scalp to ends of hair pull it up on top of ur head to let it sit while u finnish ur shower then rinse well at the end. U could do that a couple times a week and see if it helps. If nothing really helps it cus u may have sesitive skin and could try shampoos and conditioners that have natural ingrediants.(or see ur derm) ive gone thu it all for yrs and ive studied it incuding having good discutions w/docs and derms even herbalists about it

Selaun blue is AWESOME there's also this stuff and I can never remember what its called but its tar something or the other and obviously its brown. I find mine at Walmart and they have an equate brand. It is also amazing. I personally like the way it smells (I'm weird I also like the way laquer thinner smells) anyway it smells like tar but girl.it is awesome too! I don't have dandruff but I have always had a sensitive scalp and too many scents in a shampoo male my scalp break.put in sores and these both always work for.me. They keep.my scalp well conditioned and make my hair smooth and shiny too.

I'm exactly the opposite. If I don't use a specific shampoo, my hair is filthy oily by the time it dries after a shower.

I'm gonna be 35 weeks and recently started getting it, so right now I'm gonna try using a Paul Mitchell product since my bestie works at a salon that her mom own but I'm pretty sure head and shoulders or selsun blue they are both dandruff shampoos.. the selsun blue works good!
