The Ten Best Dandruff Shampoos

Dandruff! Go away, you. A common problem (especially during winter) dandruff happens when oil from your scalp causes the cells to clump together and look like those little white flakes we all dread so much. This can cause itching, flaking, and a headache for anyone who prefers to clothe yourself in the color black. Now that we’ve grossed you out, we’ll help you out with the top ten dandruff shampoos out there. Banish the white, flaky monsters and get the shining, lustrous hair shampoo commercials are made of with any of these great dandruff shampoos. Dandruff means that you should wash your hair more often instead of less (a common misconception) so get to it with any of these great products.
