salams
dandruff or flaky scalp have many reasons...consult a good Dermatologist...in certain scalp conditions oiling worsens the dandruff.

use it on alternate days after washing with plain normal shampoo...leave the foam of this medicated shampoo for7 to 8 min n then rinse the scalp with water....if effective use it for 1 month, otherwise consult after 15 days

plain regular shampoo should be used daily ... and... ketoconazole shampoo should be used on alternate days after washing with regular shampoo because superficial oil n dirt will be removed with regular shampoo...in this way regular shampoo will help medicated shampoo to provide maximum benefit to the scalp with medication in it.
