A 40-year-old member asked:
Do you think i can use a regular shampoo and conditioner to get rid of dandruff on hair?

Wash hair frequently: try tar shampoo followed by a cream rinse or lemon based conditioner. This remedy might not be as effective as using an anti-dandruff shampoo because these contain antifungal ingredients that kill the fungus (malassezia) that is associated with dandruff.
