Everyday Shampoos for Dandruff

Dandruff can be embarrassing. Normal shampoos don’t target the underlying cause of dandruff, so if you have an itchy, flaky scalp, it’s time to try a more effective medicated shampoo.

A medicated dandruff shampoo is a quick and easy way to treat dandruff and keep your hair flake-free. Everyday medicated shampoo brands such as Head & Shoulders and Vosene are effective in mild cases, but if your scalp is very inflamed and your dandruff is persistent, try a stronger medicated shampoo containing the following active ingredients: salicylic acid, fumaric acid, zinc pyrithione, and piroctone olamine.

Many anti-dandruff products are available as a 2-in-1 shampoo plus conditioner.
