In brief: Shampoos are helpful

Dandruff (seborheic dermatitis) will usually clear with selsun blue or ketoconazole shampoo in 1-2 weeks if the case is mild.
You may also find some success with salicylic acid or tar shampoos or a specific shampoo called dhs zinc. Sometimes it is more severe and will require more aggressive treatment. See your doctor or a dermatologist if the above is not helping after a couple weeks.
