My husband and I are always battling dandruff. We use the shampoos and conditioners (T-gel, H&S’s etc) but it never completely gets rid of it. Surely there is a way! Does anyone have any treatment recommendations? Even natural alternatives? Welcome prevention suggestions too!

  • I found that Lush’s anti dandruff shampoo bar (available online too) was just brilliant.

  • Have you used a product already consistently and for long periods of time? My hubby has dandruff issues and he always washes with Head and Shoulders two in one. He doesn’t use anything else ever and has no issues with dandruff now

  • If everything fails I would probably consult a dermatologist

  • If all else fails, try tea tree shampoo available from supermarkets. It might help.

  • We use Selsun Blue when our dandruff flares up. The yellow version of it for when it’s worse. Regular use, as directed on the bottle, clears it up well

  • Wash in bicarb and water then rinse in apple cider vinegar

  • Moogoo lice treatment is a good one to use!

  • I find T Gel works but I do not like the smell too much but it does work

  • you can’t get rid of dandruff, only control it

  • There’s a herbal essences scalp scrub shampoo or maybe try the moogoo range

  • There’s a herbal essences scalp scrub shampoo or maybe try the moogoo range – it’s done wonders for me

  • Some really good advice below thanks I also suffer bad dandruff and I’m going to try the olive oil advice.

  • I think there is a shampoo called polytar. It absolutely stinks but I’ve heard it works really well for dandruff.
