How to get the most out of your anti dandruff shampoo?

on September 02, 2023

There are two simple tips that you must follow when using an anti dandruff shampoo. The first tip is to understand that the product is meant for the scalp and not the hair. Accordingly, you must use your anti dandruff shampoo on the scalp and not on the hair!

The second tip is kind of like a reverse spin on the first one. Since the best performing anti dandruff products are customized to work on the scalp and usually have a higher pH, they do not provide the best conditioning benefits for the hair. Therefore, you may find that your hair is rough when you use only an anti dandruff shampoo most of the time.

This is kind of easy to understand when your anti dandruff product has a name like Arcolane scalp solution you intuitively know that you must leave this product on the scalp, and you probably will need additional cleansing shampoos for the hair. So you use this anti dandruff lotion on the scalp, wait for a few minutes, and then wash out all of the scalp and the hair with another conditioning shampoo!

Arcolane Scalp Solution

Where it is not so easy to understand is when your product carries a name like Bioderma Node DS+ Shampoo! Since it is mentioned as an anti dandruff shampoo, we understand that there is some cleansing and maybe some conditioning also available. However, since the dandruff is on the scalp, you will still need to allow some contact time on the scalp, even with this shampoo. On washing out the product, assess how your hair feels.  If you experience any frizziness or excessive dryness of the hair, you may still need to follow the same method as for the Arcolane scalp lotion. Use the anti dandruff shampoo on the scalp for a few minutes, and then wash it out using a regular shampoo.

Always condition the hair after every wash- you need this with regular shampoos, but you cannot skip this when you use an antidandruff solution, which is known to frizz out the hair! 

Hair is a non-living object (yes, that is why you don't experience any pain when you have a haircut), and it depends on us to provide the right care to prevent weathering. Add a few drops of the light detangling fluid like Child’s Play to condition and reseal the cuticles of the hair. Child’s Play hair serum is best applied about 15-20 minutes after washing your hair, when your hair is half dry.

Anti dandruff shampoos and solutions work great to keep the scalp healthy and clean. However, if you see persistent dandruff or notice flaky patches on the scalp, you may need to get some help from your dermatologist!
