Alright, I've had the worst dandruff ever for about 2 years now. Lately, it's been worse than ever and I really would like to get rid of it. I have Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner (although, I didn't that 2 in 1 garbage, my dad just picked it up and thought it was regular shampoo). I've tried everything to get it out lately (I've tried using the shampoo 1 day, then just washing it without shampoo the next, giving my head a good solid rinse for 5 mins just to make sure I didn't put in too much shampoo, etc.). Does anyone know how to get rid of it (and if possible, something I can put in it overnight or something so I won't have it at least for tomorrow).

And let all the skin flakes show? Also, to whoever recommended Selsun Blue, it didn't work too well either. The regular Head and Shoulders shampoo worked better, but it was no miracle worker either.

EDIT: And to the poster above me, I doubt it either. But you never know.

do you have actual dandruff or just a lot of dead skin on your scalp?

but I can't help you since the 2 in 1 head & shoulders stuff is what worked for me.

Get medical strength shampoo.

The active ingredient of head and shoulders is selenium, You can buy high concentration selenium based shampoos from a chemist.

Strangely the reason I know this is not because I had bad dandruff but because I had a fungal infection on my arm that needed high selenium to kill it off and the doctor prescribed the shampoo because it was the cheapest/easiest treatment.

Honestly, I have no idea. I just know that when I shake my head, it looks like it is snowing, and in school when I wear a blue shirt, you can see all the dandruff on the back of my shirt and collar.

EDIT: And to the people who tell me to go to a doctor, I won't be able to do that for a while because my parents will never bring me to the doctor's office unless I break a bone. I had to wait a month before I could go to get rid of my ringworm.

DOUBLE EDIT: To the guy who said the 2 in 1 worked for him, are you supposed to leave it in your hair for a little while before you rinse it? Because I hear that's what you are supposed to do with conditioner.

Um, you have a problem. Dandruff is generally white causing it not to show up on white stuff.

Get several kinds of dandruff shampoos and alternate them occasionally you don't need anything special.

Tea tree oil? Where do I go about getting this?
#20
It could be that the shampoo you are using is irritating your scalp. Get a special shampoo imo.

Are you sure? I'm almost certain it's pyrithione zinc.
You should get prescription shampoo though, it's must better than stuff you can just buy at the store.

Do you have longer hair, or a lot of hair? Because I've noticed that when my hair is fairly long that I have dandruff, but when it is short I have none, I think this is mainly because you can clean your scalp better if you have shorter hair.

Neutrogena T-Gel

It probably won't fix it but damn it helps a ton. But stuff is expensive (6 bucks a bottle)

The Walmart generic is like 3 dollars and just as good. But yeah I usually put it in my hair, let it sit for as long as it takes me to wash my body then rinse it out and do the rest of my hair stuff. Btw, the stuff smells like chemicals because it's main ingredient is coal tar.

Yeah, I mean, it's about as long as my eyebrows and thick. I've always had the same hair pretty much since I was in 1st grade. And to the poster above me, I'll pass on using it if it has coal tar in it. That just sounds degrading, but if there is a sample bottle of it that I can get for free some how, I'd probably be glad to try it, but not pay $6 for it.

see a dermatologist,

It's probably not dandruff, it'll be sebhorric(sp) dermatitis

It effects like 2% of the human population, i infact have it, it's incurable but very easy to manage (like herpies), but you can only get medicine for it via a doctor (like herpies)

Come to think of it, it's very much like herpies...but on your head lol

What an awesome thing to have...
