If dandruff does not improve or gets worse after using anti-dandruff products, then it’s probably not dandruff but more likley to be dry scalp. The two conditions can cause similar symptoms, however treatments are very different.

Unlike normal dandruff, which is caused by fungal infections of the scalp, dry scalp dandruff is caused by underlying dry skin conditions such as eczema or contact dermatitis from external environmental irritants or chemicals in hair care products. Stress and sunburn can also lead to dry scalp dandruff.
