Of all of the hair woes people deal with in their lifetime, dandruff is easily one of the top five worst. Your scalp is itchy, irritated, and the flakes on your head and shoulders make you feel like you never want to leave the house again. Luckily, there are tons of products on the market formulated to put an end to your dandruff nightmares.

We’ve rounded up five dandruff shampoos that will soothe your scalp. They can help banish your flakes forever.

Redken Dandruff Control Shampoo

Formulated with pyrithione zinc, Redken’s specialized Dandruff Control Shampoo cleanses hair and soothes the scalp, leaving hair light and airy with a beautiful shine. For the best results, wet your hair, lather the shampoo, and allow it to remain in your hair for five minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
