I have used SO MANY shampoos over the years for my flaky, itchy, sensitive scalp. The doctor has recommended various types to me, like T-Gel and some prescription ones but to be honest, they didn’t do that much for me (or at least not in the long term).
I bought this shampoo from Boots on a total whim – I just happened to see it but hadn’t heard of it before. This shampoo is called Dandrazol – it comes in 2 sizes, I bought the small one which I finished, and recently got the big one which was around £9.
Dandrazol contains the antifungal ingredient Ketoconazole that treats the underlying cause of dandruff and helps restore the scalp back to normal healthy state.Dandrazol is an effective treatment shampoo that only needs to be used for short periods, and then only periodically to prevent dandruff.
This shampoo is used twice weekly for 2-4 weeks and you leave it on your scalp for 3-5 minutes each time.
For prevention use the shampoo once a week for 1-2 weeks. You can use your normal shampoo inbetween treatments and you can even use them together (use the normal shampoo first then the Dandrazol) – for example if you have long and thick hair or like to wash twice.
All I can say is this that this WORKED for me, totally. I’ve waited 6 weeks of using it to be sure, but this has stopped me:
1. Scratching my scalp
2. Getting flakies
3. Needing to wash my hair every day (I can do it every other day now).
I have tried numerous scalp shampoos and treatments and most have worked for a bit then stopped working. This has been the first one that has just been so…effective. I sat there on the way home one day and though huh…I haven’t scratched my scalp for days!
See, at it’s worse it’s not flakies that bother me, it’s the itching. It was almost an addiction at one point, to scratch. It makes your scalp sore, red, sensitive.
This is the shampoo. It has a mild medicinal scent, no where as smelly as T-Gel or Polytar.
It’s fairly easy to lather, I really work it into the scalp, leave it for a bit as I scrub up, then rinse it off. I condition as normal afterwards.
This stuff has been amazing and it’s a completely random find. I will keep on using this as it’s completely controlling my itchies.
I bought this from Boots, you’ll find it near T-Gel and other scalp shampoos in the medicine section. There’s 2 sizes, it was something like £6 and £9 for the bigger one.
Do you have any scalp issues? If so how do you remedy it?
