As strange as this sounds, do you have nails? Long, hard nails? I don't even have a dandruff problem, but when my nails aren't done I hate washing my hair because it doesn't feel clean! I'll even have left over product gunk after. My talons get right in there, lol. I do have long hair so that makes a difference... Get your nails done and give yourself a wash and see if it makes a difference. You don't need to get talons, but a little extension (Shellac won't suffice because the nail isn't hard enough) and its a good excuse to treat yourself, :).
Not every problem needs to be solved with something dramatic like a prescription shampoo. Try something randomly different and see what happens!

I don't recommend using your nails on your scalp. If you have the same type of dandruff as I do, all you'll succeed in doing is ripping open scabs and making your scalp bleed. Rub thoroughly with your fingertips. Or there are hard, but gentle, plastic tip brushes specifically designed to rub shampoo deep into your scalp. You can find them online from for $4, or for about $12.

Whatever brand you use it really comes down to the medicated ingredient. So if Head and Shoulders doesn't work for you it's because zinc pyrithione doesn't work for your type of dandruff. There's coal tar, zinc pyrithione, tea tree, salicylic acid, ketoconazole (which can be found in Nizoral), and selenium sulfide. Some people find that they have to alternate between different medicated shampoos in order to see results. Also, always leave the shampoo on your scalp for a good solid 3 minutes at least. If after trying to see results after 3 weeks and still nothing, you'll have to go to a dermatologist for medicated shampoo.

I just read in one of my magazines a few days ago on this subject. The lady said to wash your hair as you normally do and rinse. Rub a capful of Listerine into your scalp, then rinse. The mouthwash helps kill the yeast that causes dandruff, leaving your scalp flake-free. It's the magazine First for Women and I get it at Walmart. I don't recommend scraping your scalp with your nails because that's only going to irritate it worse, plus open the pores and any bacteria can get in. I hope the Listerine helps and I guess it goes by your hair length also. Good luck-Ginger.
