Dandruff :: Selenium is the first course against dandruff

Dandruff cannot be cured but can be controlled with certain medicated shampoos and creams.

Despite the dry, scaly appearance, treatments for dandruff are not products for dry skin but rather products that diminish shedding and decrease the fungus on the scalp.

First try a shampoo containing selenium sulfide, such as Selsun Blue or Exsel. If this does not work after several weeks then try shampoos containing pyritione zinc (such as Head & Shoulders or DHS Zinc) or salicyclic acid (such as X-Seb or Sebex).
