Thanks for sharing...
I used to have a lot of Dandruff months ago... and then I got a tip from my friend.
She said that before I wash my hair with shampoo, I should apply lemon's juice into my hair. It sorta burns but then I keep it on for 10 mins and take it off, when I wash my hair... And the dandruff just dissapeared.
