I have dandruff. Not just little gentle snowflakes that no one can really notice, but sometimes flakes of skin that are as big as a coin (boak). I have tried most anti dandruff shampoos but it's still there. What do the wise people of mumsnet recommend?
I use a ketoconazole shampoo. I have eczema on my scalp and it clears it up. I recommended it to my mum who has always had dandruff and tried everything going and it cleared it up too Dandruff can be caused by a yeast overgrowth which the ketaconazole clears up.
I've had a flaky scalp problem since my teens - have tried countless shampoos over the years, medicated don't work for me any more, currently the only thing keeping it under control is Bioderma Nodé K "Keratoreducing shampoo". Bioderma don't sell their haircare range over here yet but I get mine on eBay (or in France). Not massively cheap but after initial course you only have to use it once a week or so, so lasts for ages.
