Dandruff is a skin condition with different causes chief of which is allergy. In view of this, you will need to be patient and persistent in treating it. The itching and flaking of dandruff can almost always be controlled. For mild dandruff, first try daily cleansing with a gentle shampoo to reduce oil and skin cell buildup. If that doesn’t help, try a medicated dandruff shampoo. You may need to try more than one shampoo to find the hair care routine that works for you. And you’ll likely need repeated or long-term treatment. If your daughter has used these medicated shampoos regularly for several weeks and still has dandruff, she may need to see her doctor or dermatologist. She may need a prescription-strength shampoo or a steroid lotion.
