A bic razor worked wonders for me Smiley Wink


On a serious note @ellieclarke1989 i used to use a shampoo called Polytar, I don't know if it is still available but it worked great

Luckily I don't really have that much dandruff but I do use pantene shampoo and haven't had any problems with It.

A coal tar based shampoo, like Neutrogena T-gel, should be left in for at least five minutes, then followed by a tea tree conditioner. Scalp flakiness can also be down to stress and exposure to extremes of weather, so try meditating and wearing a wooly hat.

I use Dove shampoo and conditioner. Always remember to really massage the scalp when washing your hair to improve circulation. x
Don't worry about the things you can't change, only the things you can.

It could be diet related also. I agree with @madscouser69 Polytar is brilliant and so soothing.

Try a jar of coconut oil just put in on your fingers massage into the scalp, leave it as long as you possibly can but try washing your hair in baby shampoo
