So you need an anti-dandruff shampoo. Many products claim to get rid of dandruff, but you want it to stay away too. So how can youchoose the best anti-dandruff shampoo for you?


First, you need to get rid of the symptoms

Our shampoos are designed to do everything a good shampoo does, PLUS tackle all the symptoms of dandruff. So that’s:

  • wash away dirt and grease

  • get rid of flakes

  • treat irritation and itch

  • leave hair feeling soft

  • smell great all day long

But you want protection that lasts
Washing away loose flakes in your hair is one thing (and almost all shampoos can do that!), but the best anti-dandruff shampoo should stop flakes from coming back.

Dandruff is a recurring condition, so it can’t truly be cured. But use the right products and you can control it so you never see it again.

Why does dandruff come back?
Unlike some other anti-dandruff products, ours tackle the root cause of dandruff – not just the symptoms – with a unique pyrithione zinc (ZPT) formula that helps stop flakes from coming back.

Using Head & Shoulders regularly prevents scalp irritants from forming, so even if you once suffered from dandruff, you may never experience the symptoms again.

Why compromise?
It’s a common misconception that anti-dandruff shampoo can’t give you beautiful-looking hair.

We make our shampoos with as much care for your hair as we do for your dandruff – so we use all the cleansers, moisturizers, etc., that other shampoos do.

Plus, the pH-balanced formula is gentle enough to use every day so you can use it regularly and have beautiful-looking, flake-free¹ hair.

There’s a huge selection too, so you can tailor it to your needs. Want super smooth hair? Try our Smooth & Silky Shampoo. Or how about extra care for damaged hair? That’s our Repair & Protect 2-in-1.
