Manage, not get rid: Seborrhea / dandruff and its relatives are not curable but are easily managed. Ketoconazole shampoo may prove your best friend; alternated with coal tar, selenium, blue drugstore dandruff shampoo, sulfur or whatever works.

Consider allergy: In addition to Dr F's comments, consider allergy to chemicals in your current shampoo or conditioner. Try using [email protected] baby shampoo(unscented) and no conditioner for 2 weeks to test for allergy.
