I don’t get dandruff often. But when I do I normally reach for my The Body Shop Ginger Anti Dandruff Shampoo. I love it and I have been using it for years. But there is one thing; you can never skip using conditioner with this shampoo, as the shampoo tends to be drying. My husband is one of those people who rarely uses a conditioner, and hence started my quest for non-drying effective anti-dandruff shampoos. First stop – Himalaya Anti Dandruff Shampoo.
The product claims to “Himalaya Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is specially formulated with botanical extracts that help control dandruff and provide nourishment to hair shafts. Fortified with herbal ingredients our shampoos are effective, natural and gentle on hair.
Tea Tree Oil a natural anti-fungal agent effectively treats dandruff;
Aloe Vera softens hair and soothes scalp, thus controlling itchy sensation;
Chickpea a rich source of natural protein helps nourish hair. ”

My Experience with Himalaya Anti Dandruff Shampoo
Himalaya Anti Dandruff Shampoo is a pale white runny shampoo with a mild fragrance. The shampoo comes in a simple white pack with a green flip open cap. The packaging is sturdy and spill proof. The anti dandruff shampoo is also easily available and economically priced.
My husband has almost used up this shampoo and I personally tried this a couple of times as well. While the shampoo has goodness of tea tree oil, aloe vera and chickpea, it doesn’t seem to do much for dandruff. It does help a wee bit, but that’s all. The pack is almost over and I can barely see any difference in the dandruff. The shampoo is undoubtedly on the dry side and can leave hair feeling dry & frizzy. It doesn’t seem to help much with the itchiness either. I have tried this after oiling my hair and it took 2 washes to remove oil. Overall, if you are looking for a budget anti-dandruff shampoo that works well this isn’t the one.
