First Time Using Dandruff Shampoo and it's WORSE?

I haven't used dandruff shampoo since I was a tween and would run out of Aveda and have to scam some of my Dad's head and shoulders but, as an adult, I was diagnosed with a condition called KP (an over production of Keratin and an inability to get rid of it) and it seems to be causing a lot of scalp build up and itching so I decided to try using a dandruff shampoo to cut through some of the sticky mess.

Yesterday, I picked up a bottle of Head and Shoulders and had at it. Today, my scalp is much less itchy and much less oily*, but each time i look in the mirror or run my fingers through my hair it's Ally Sheedy a la The Breakfast club.

Is that a normal reaction and I just need to give it time or have I traded one bad problem for a worse one?

(*my hair is seldom oily, but the KP seems to make the skin on my scalp sticky and oily feeling*)

Have had itchy scalp, lots of dandruff, even red scales around my ears. I got a tip from Dr. OZ about NEEM shampoo, and it has solved ALL of my problems. Worth a try
