The best dandruff shampoos, medicated or natural, are the ones that are formulated to fight the fungus which commonly causes dandruff in the first place. Now this is only true if the dandruff is from Seborrhoeic dermatitis, one of the most common causes of dandruff. What ever you find your individual cause to be, using a good dandruff shampoo when needed will alleviate the problems associated with dandruff while curing the reason it is present to begin with.
If you really want a good dandruff shampoo, you should make one yourself. Or at least start with an all natural shampoo and add to it what is needed. Either way, natural ingredients are the safest yet most effective way to treat any dandruff condition. The best approach is to first figure out why you have dandruff. In other words, what caused the condition? From the answer to that question, I can formulate an extremely effective remedy.
A good dandruff shampoo should have the correct agent needed to treat the cause. Not just the symptoms. Dandruff is caused due to a lot of reasons. Including build up of oil or sebum on the scalp, psoriasis, eczema of the scalp, incorrect food intake and more. Even a fungal infection could be your culprit. That could be due to hormonal imbalance, state of the immune system or stress.It is important to know the root cause when treating dandruff. This is the only way you can ever get rid of it effectively and for the long term.
There are name brand shampoos that are considered to be the best dandruff shampoos around. One I know of has been around since the 1960′s. Therefore it may be difficult for for a person to recognize that other, more effective treatments have come along. Once a brand name becomes a household name, it can be hard for someone to allow themselves to try an alternative treatment. Even though research confirms that there are better, more effective methods available today. Some of the best dandruff shampoos are not very well known and most don’t even have a brand name because they are made from home.
If you are currently using what you thought to be the best dandruff shampoo ever, you may be in for a rude awakening. When a person stops using some of these shampoos on a regular basis, the symptoms often return. Sometimes even with a vengeance. This is because only the symptoms were being treated and not the cause. So really, most of these shampoos are just a cover up and not a real solution.
Even with the use of a good dandruff shampoo, it is quite possible that a dandruff sufferer is still experiencing some embarrassing symptoms of dandruff. Their scalps may still itch consistently. They may still be constantly checking and brushing flakes from their shoulders. Waking up in the morning to find sheets or pillows covered in whitish dead skin cells. If you have been using what you thought was the best dandruff shampoo and are still experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t you think it might be time to try something else?
