As a post to add to the memories - a lot of people seem to have problems dealing with Dandruff, and as someone who's been down that road many times, here's the advice that I've been giving on the board:

For Dandruff problems

Step One:
Do a vinegar rinse to balance your scalp to start with. 1 cup of apple cider vinegar (or white, I find apple is a bit better) to 8 cups of water: soak your head in a bucketfull for a couple minutes, then take your head out and let the vinegar sit there for about 3 - 5 minutes, rinse well.

Step Two:
If your scalp is really itchy, apply a small amount of tea tree oil to your scalp at night, about an hour before bed so it has time to absorb a bit before laying on a pillow. Doing this between washings can really help with scratching, and calm down your scalp.

Step Three:
If these aren't helping out as you thought they would, you can try an over the counter Shampoo such as Neutrogena T Gel.

Step Four:
If nothing is helping, go see your physician to make sure that there's nothing serious going on with your skin - if there is a more serious problem your physician May direct you to a dermatologist.
