Works very well and doesn’t make me itchier
I tried everything on the CVS shelves for anti dandruff, but they all made it worse. This stuff works very well and does not make me breakout in hives. I love it, and their other products, and have told many friends about them!

Amazing Shampoo
Thank you, Vanicream! This shampoo is amazing! I have seborrheic dermatitis + curly hair. My symptoms are always an itchy scalp with red patches. Oddly enough, no flakes. This shampoo takes care of the itch and also calms my scalp. It isn't too harsh on my curly hair, which is always a plus. I have tried other popular shampoos (one starting with N) that only made my itch and red patches worse!

Takes away itchiness
If you rely on head and shoulders with zinc and want to switch to a healthier option for your hair this product is for you. I tried several sensitive scalp shampoos, including derma e , nizoral , aveda , sulfate free shampoos , t gel and none of them took away my dandruff without giving me an itchy head. I would be dandruff free but my head would itch like crazy I because of my Seborrheic dermatitis or i would have dandruff with no itchy head or both in the worst case. I tried this shampoo and my head didn’t itch, i had no dandruff and my hair was not a frizzy mess like with some other strong dandruff shampoos, literally on the first wash. I freaking love it it’s great.
