Nizoral Shampoo (I get it from Amazon but they sell it in Boots) actually cures the problem rather than just clearing that day's flakes. Also, Oilatum Intense does a similar job. I alternate these with the Body Shop Ginger Shampoo, or another "ordinary" shampoo and the problem is gone.
Ginger body shop shampoo is brilliant! I have seborrheic dermatitis (yuck I know) which got to the point that it was making my hair fall out! A cocktail of shampoos sorted it out but the ginger one was one of the best.
Otherwise, Alphosyl, Nizoral, Selsum....well, I can't remember any more but there's lots out there to try. Try French pharmacy products too. I haven't used them in so long because they work so well, that's why I can't remember them but I assure you I was an expert
One good tip I came across was to keep your scalp on its toes a bit- keep changing shampoo so it doesn't get used to whatever the active element is.
I tried all dandruff products on the market but T gel finally worked, though it took a few weeks. It's horrible when you can't get rid of it, but persevere with a product for a few weeks before trying something else.
