5 Top Anti-dandruff Shampoos

Ever had that feeling when everyone seems to be looking at you but it’s not for the right reasons? It could be because of dandruff. There are many shampoos on the market that can treat dandruff effectively and efficiently and thanks to advances in modern technology, there is simply no good excuse to have it.

1. L’Oreal Elvive

L’Oreal, a manufacturer of beauty products, is not the really the expected choice when it comes to dandruff control but believe it or not, they do make one of the best. Not only is this shampoo an anti-dandruff mixture that will send those little white flakes packing, but it also smells good, leaves your hair shiny and it is not very expensive. Perhaps the only downside to buying this shampoo is that it contains selenium disulphide, which is an anti-fungal component that has been known to cause hair loss in the long-term.

2. Neutrogena T/Gel

A global company that has received awards for its excellence in skin care, Neutrogena makes hair products too. This anti-dandruff shampoo is very effective and the maker stands by its claim that this is the best shampoo for dandruff control as recommended by dermatologists. Within two weeks, it will clear up your dandruff, but may require the use of a conditioner to keep hair from becoming dull or brittle.

3. Nizoral

Another great choice for those suffering from dandruff, this shampoo is easily available and contains ketazole, a fighter of pityorosporumovale as its active ingredient. For those of us who don’t speak the language of chemists, pityorosporumovale is widely recognised by dermatologists as the main cause of dandruff and the fact that this shampoo has the power to fight the cause and not just the symptoms makes it a very good buy.

4. KP Namboodiri

The aryuvedic anti-dandruff shampoo made by this brand is one of the best in the world. Though it is not easy to find, unless you live in India where it is made, it is one of the best. It contains amla oil too, which as many Indian women know, is an oil that keeps hair soft, shiny and healthy. Though it is not 100% natural, it is a very effective.

5. Blossom Kochar Aroma Magic

A herbal shampoo with excellent dandruff removal properties, this product is another from the Orient that may be a little bit tough to find in the States. One thing it does have that so many others don’t is a very pleasant aroma and in addition, it actually works. Though it claims to be herbal, there is actually no way to prove this, but it does work and it is not very expensive. It also ensures that the hair is left in a good state, which should make it a lot more alluring to those who have tried dandruff shampoos in the past and found them to dry out the scalp.

Don’t forget that when using dandruff shampoo, you should not wash your hair every day, as this strips it of the natural oils secreted by your head.
