The Best Anti-Dandruff Shampoos: 1MM Reviews

Based on 1,034,210 Influenster Reviews

Oh, dandruff. This scalp condition that causes those pesky flakes is such a pain in the butt. It often makes your scalp itchy and you can't wear black without checking your shoulders in the mirror. Not to mention, it's far worse in the winter! Dry heat destroys scalps and can leave them red, irritated, scaly, and flaky. The loss of skin cells is normal to your skin's life cycle, but excessive flaking is a common problem that millions of people face. This condition can also rear its ugly head as a form of eczema, called seborrheic eczema.

We don't want you to have to deal with this topical issue, which is why we've rounded up a list of the best shampoos to treat dandruff, based on thousands of Influenster reviews.

I used this product in place of my usual dandruff shampoo for three weeks and decided that I really did love the results! Not only did I have to use it less than my other shampoo, only twice a week instead of every other day, but it didn't make my hair feel dry or straw-like afterwards. I like that it has a soapy, clean smell with not much of a fragrance. I felt I was able to style my hair and wear a fragrance over it without worrying about any kind of a 'dandruff shampoo/medicinal' smell to hide. I did not have to use much to get a good lather going which is also a plus because you know that the amount you use twice a week will make the bottle last a long time. I would recommend to people who are limited to less time to treat their dandruff or for people like me who are sick of treating it too frequently!

I cannot live without this shampoo and the conditioner! My hair has drastically become longer and softer plus, since I have eczema, the anti dandruff soothes my itchy scalp. I would recommend to everyone and anyone!

I have to start off by saying that I have oily hair/scalp and I battled with dandruff for a long time until I started using this Equate shampoo. I have tried Head and shoulders but that did not work for me. I highly recommend this to anybody with oily hair. I also don't put conditioner on my scalp only at the ends because it makes me greasier if I use it on my scalp. This Everyday Clean was the one that worked for me I tried the Equate 2 in 1 and it didn't work for me.

I have dry skin. I'm not sure if my scalp being even dryer than usual had anything to do with the winter, but my scalp was bad. I was embarrassed. My cousin who's in hair school suggested I try this and the first week I used it twice and it helped my scalp tremendously! And I now use it once a week and that works for me. My scalp is no longer dry, flaky or itchy. I didn't use the shampoo for two weeks and noticed my scalp flaking badly again. The scent smells a bit medicated but after washing and drying my hair it smells nice. This is my scalp saver!
