Explore our tips and advice on how to get rid of dandruff from choosing the best product to the perfect hair washing regime to tackle flakes.
The best way to get rid of dandruff is to use an anti-dandruff range that’s been proven to work against flakes, itching and a dry scalp.
To do that, you need one with the right active ingredient, like zinc pyrithione which you’ll find in all of Head & Shoulders’ anti-dandruff shampoos.
It works to tackle the root cause – the microbe Malassezia globosa which is present on everyone’s scalp.
By tackling the root cause of the issue, it breaks the cycle of dandruff irritation rather than just treating the symptoms like other shampoos.
But we’ve gone further than that. We also include a second zinc compound, zinc carbonate, to maximise the bioactivity of the zinc pyrithione, making it even more effective against dandruff.

Once you’ve chosen the right anti-dandruff shampoo, you need to make sure you use it properly.
Here’s a few tips to make sure your shampoo regime works as well as possible:
- Use it every time you wash your hair – use your anti-dandruff shampoo regularly to keep dandruff in check and keepflakes at bay.
- Choose the right conditioner – many ordinary cosmetic conditioners can wash out the active ingredient in youranti-dandruff shampoo. So choose Head & Shoulders anti-dandruff conditioner – it’s been designed to work hand-in-hand with ourshampoos so the zinc pyrithione keeps working to help get rid of dandruff.
- Choose the right treatment - all our hair foods, scalp moisturisers and instant scalp relief spray contain anti-dandruff benefits so you don't have to worry even in between washes.
