Dandruff affects more than half the global population. That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate anti-dandruff routine.

Dandruff is caused by a microbe called Malassezia globosa. This yeast-like fungus lives on all our scalps and lives off your scalp’s natural oils.

Unfortunately, during its life cycle it produces a by-product called oleic acid that more than half the population is sensitive to; in these people, that sensitivity leads to dandruff.

Tackling dandruff effectively, however, needs more than just a good anti-dandruff shampoo – although that’s a great place to start.

To get rid of dandruff and keep your locks healthy, you need a routine that will help your hair and scalp.

With help from Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner, you can quickly start getting rid of your flakes. Our shampoos and conditioners are gentle on your hair and nourishing, as well, so they’ll go a long way to keeping your scalp and hair looking healthy, soft and smooth.

Soft hair

Here you’ll find everything you need to keep your hair soft and supple while you take on the flakes.

Keeping the flakes off and your hair soft means combining great products with a healthy lifestyle, gentle care techniques, and styling that won’t hurt your hair or scalp.

Smooth hair

Of course, soft hair is only part of the puzzle – you want soft and smooth hair, that resists frizzing up in the middle of a night out.

Styling is particularly important here: unless you take steps to protect your hair, heat styling can be a one-way ticket to damage and frizz.

Happily, there are plenty of techniques that allow you to style your hair effectively while keeping it smooth, and a wealth of useful products to help things along the way.
