Okay, I am a female with dry and damaged wavy/curly hair and I absolutely LOVE this shampoo. I've never had an issue with dandruff, but I use this because it's one of the few shampoos (and I've tried a LOT) that works wonders on my hair. It makes my hair noticeably softer and more manageable and gives the appearance that my hair is healthier than it actually is. I don't care that this is "for men," I will continue to purchase for myself. On that note, my dad uses this as well and he swears by it. He says he hasn't had a problem with dandruff since using this product.
