Dandruff solution #1: Wash your hair with a medicated shampoo
Although there are several different types of dandruff shampoos on the market, all with different ingredients, Nizoral is our recommendation. When washing your hair, leave the medicated shampoo on your scalp for at least five minutes before rinsing.
Why Nizoral? One of the few studies comparing several of the most common dandruff shampoos found that Nizoral, which contains the antifungal ingredient ketoconazole, was most effective at killing the fungus responsible for dandruff, particularly at the 2% prescription strength. Even the over-the-counter 1% strength was 10 times more effective than the other shampoos tested, which included Head & Shoulders and Selsun Blue.
