I can't seem to get a straight answer. So I've had dandruff for the past 4 years. I remember that I got it before I started smoking. I head in one place that smoking causes dandruff, and other places say it doesn't.

Which is right? Share your experiences? While we're at it, anything I can do at home to help? Head and shoulders+Selsun+store brand stuff didn't work so I had to get prescription shampoo with very powerful steroids and it still won't work.

I'd honestly rather die than have to put up with this every day. It's really bad Help please. Store brands failed me, doctor failed me, google failed me. Your turn.

There's your problem, you shouldn't mix them, baby.

Yeah, just stop smoking. Or you might just have dry skin, or something. I don't know. Head and shoulders always worked for me if I had dandruff.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I used to have bad dandruff too . It came off in giant flakes.

I don't have dandruff anymore, but here's what I did:
1.) Drink a LOT of water. Dandruff is caused by dry skin . Hydration starts from the inside.
2.) Don't wash hair everyday. I washed mine every other day and it was fine. Your scalp will produce oils that will condition and hydrate itself.
3.) When you use conditioner, massage it into your scalp. Use one of those conditioners that are "moisturizing". Be sure to wash it out well though.

That's all I really did. You can also buy some light oils such as jojoba to put on your scalp and hair. A drop or two can work, and it doesn't make the hair look oily.

Shave your hair. It'll make dandruff less noticeable and easier to treat directly

Smoking is bad for your skin so it wont help but I smoke and I'm lush and dandruff free.

I have dandruff and don't smoke. I think I use Selsun Blue after years of trying to find some shampoo that works. shits good.

My physics teacher has dandruff really bad, and she's a heavy smoker. Don't know whether the two are connected, nor do I plan on trying to ask her.

I have terrible psoriasis on my scalp, which is probably what you have. Nothing helps

I shampoo and condition every day. Maybe that could help you out a bit OP?
