Dandruff, or "Pityriasis captis", is caused by overactive production and shedding of the skin cells. It is also thought to be stress related. To deal with this, he should use an anti dandruff shampoo and also apply an oil conditioner or conditioning cream to the scalp.

Dandruff is caused by bacteria. If you kill the bacteria then you will stop the dandruff. Something as simple as household mouthwash can be used to stop dandruff.

Get a Head and Shoulders shampoo and conditioner, and make sure he uses it religiously. Also, be sure he is washing and rinsing correctly. Lather the shampoo and massage into the scalp. Really get the shampoo into the roots of the hair. Most importantly, be sure and rinse out all the shampoo from your hair.
