How To Get Rid Of Dandruff With Shampoo

Getting rid of dandruff is easier than you might think – with the right shampoo and the right hair care regime and you can say goodbye to flakes. So how do you get rid of dandruff? Here’s how…

1. Choose an anti-dandruff shampoo that works

There are plenty of anti-dandruff shampoos on the market, but they’re not all the same. To get rid of dandruff effectively, you need one with an active ingredient that’s proven to work. 

That’s where we come in – our shampoos all contain piroctone olamine. 

2. Pick the right shampoo variant for you 

Next you need to decide on the right variant depending on your hair & scalp type and related concerns. 

We’ve developed a whole range of products to meet your needs, whether that’s to treat a dry scalp, remove excess oil, get rid of itch itch*  or want or leave you with soft, silky hair. there’s a Head & Shoulders variant for you 

You’ll also find shampoos specially designed for sensitive scalps and helping to achieve stronger, thicker hair

3. Use anti-dandruff shampoo regularly

This is a key step. While one wash may get rid of visible flakes, to keep dandruff at bay you need to use an anti-dandruff shampoo every time you wash your hair

And if you switch back to an ordinary shampoo, you can actually wash away some of the active ingredient on your scalp, making your anti-dandruff shampoo less effective. 

4. Match it with an anti-dandruff conditioner

If you use a conditioner, make sure it’s designed to complement your anti-dandruff shampoo. Many ordinary conditioners can wash away the dandruff-fighting ingredients in your shampoo. 

That’s why we developed Head & Shoulders conditioners they complement the active the shampoo so it keeps on working to keep you flake-free. 

That’s it! Really simple – just keep on using Head & Shoulders and you’ll be able to get rid of dandruff**  and wave goodbye to flakes.
