It depends: I have had some patients with mild dandruff help out after 1 use. Other with more significant dandruff get response in a few weeks.

How long does it take for selsun blue to completely get rid of dandruff?

Usualy 1-2 weeks: Dandruff (seborheic dermatitis) will usually clear with selsun blue in 1-2 weeks if the case is mild. Sometimes it is more severe and will require more aggressive treatment. See your doctor or a dermatologist if the selsun blue is not helping after a couple weeks.
