Are you wondering what the best dandruff shampoo is? Dandruff can be quite embarrassing but luckily now not that hard to get rid of with the help of a good dandruff shampoo.
There is nothing worse than getting all dressed up in a beautiful black suit or a stunning black dress and then you notice all the little white flakes settle on your shoulders. Oh No!!!!
Especially when you out on a hot date and you are trying to impress the new person you with your hot good looks.
I have heard my kids shout a few times, "Oh my God I got dandruff!!!"
So... off to get an anti-dandruff shampoo but which one do you choose?
The first thing you need to do is find out what the cause of your dandruff is. The main cause is just simple having a dry scalp but some of the other causes can be Minoxidil, HIV, sun burns and other medical related issues.
The pharmacy usually sells medicated shampoos for dandruff so ask your pharmacist which would be the best to use for your unwanted scalp problem of you could go to you local salon as they may sell anti dandruff shampoos.
1) Redken - Scalp Relief
I usually recommend Scalp Relief Dandruff Control in the Redken range which is a shampoo specially designed for dry, flaking scalp and hair.
This is a great shampoo for dandruff control this has pyrithione zinc in it which is a highly effective anti-dandruff ingredient.
This will help soothe your scalp and make your hair beautiful and shiny.

8) Home Health - Everclean Anti-dandruff
This is an unscented shampoo whihc will eliminate itching and flaking.

Not only will it help with your dandruff it will also nourish and strengthen your hair, as well as add Vitamins A & D.
If you are big on herbs then this might be the shampoo for you, it contains herbal extractsof Horsetail, Henna and Rosemary.
If these shampoos don't help with your dandruff problems another option would be to seek medical attention and go see a dermatologist.
I have had clients in my chair having haircuts literally turn my black comb white. I find dandruff more prominent in men then in woman and also in teenagers.
Perfume in your shampoo can cause an upset in the natural balance of your scalp, so natural options might be the best option for you when choosing your best dandruff shampoo.
