Dandruff cannot be controlled by hair oil. In some individuals putting oil will only make the scalp greasier and give rise to more greasy flakes. So it is best to avoid putting oil on your scalp. Those with a dry scalp can use hair oil but to should apply it once or twice a week for an hour or two before washing it off. This will only prevent a dry scalp but not the cause of dandruff. To control dandruff, an anti fungal preparation has to be used either in a shampoo form or a leave-on lotion form.
