  1. Which shampoo is best for dandruff?

    Whether you’re dealing with just a few flakes or a chronic dry scalp, the good news is that it’s possible to tackle dandruff and boost your confidence with the right shampoo.

    But before you kick-off your search, it’s worth knowing exactly what causes those pesky flakes in the first place. A major contributing factor to dandruff is scalp issues, which can lead to itching and flaking. They are typically caused by an overgrowth of yeast or bacteria, which thrive in oily environments. Other factors like shifts in hormones, diet or the environment can also contribute to dandruff.

    To fight off flakiness, look for shampoos containing anti-dandruff ingredients like salicylic acid, ketoconazole or pyrithione zinc. These ingredients work to break down dead skin cells and purify your scalp, helping to reduce flaking, itching and irritation in the process. The right formula will improve scalp comfort and clear it of flakes and skin cell build-up, while leaving your hair feeling clean and soft.

    If your efforts fall short and problems persist, we recommend seeing a specialist who will be able to identify the exact cause of dandruff and make recommendations for the right treatment.
