Most anti-dandruff shampoos advertise that all you need is to use them for four weeks, and dandruff will never return. Then, a couple of weeks later, your scalp begins to itch again and the little white flakes begin to show. It’s a vicious cycle to get you hooked to their business model of selling more of their products to you.

Unlike what most people think, dandruff is not an occasional skin condition that you can get rid of forever. You can prevent bacteria from spreading and, hopefully, making sure that your scalp stays clean and healthy for a long time. But it’s not true that anti-dandruff shampoos can remove it forever. You need a shampoo that’s truly antibacterial, that leaves your hair looking shiny and healthy, and that you can use frequently. Most shampoos in the market are too harsh for your scalp. And those that claim to be gentle, well, those aren’t actually doing anything.

How do I know this? Because for years I had the most severe cases of dandruff and none of the brands in the market helped my case. And, yes, I have probably tried every single anti-dandruff shampoo out there. They promised miracles but none of them delivered. And they all failed two basic things: they didn’t prevent the bacteria from spreading and they didn’t respect the balance of my skin.

Then one day I found Facedoctor’s Hair & Scalp Doctor Shampoo, with sea buckthorn oil as an active ingredient. I knew the effect of this oil in people with chronic skin conditions like psoriasis and rosacea, so I was thrilled to try it out on a shampoo! Most importantly, I knew it would respect my skin’s balance while getting rid of bacteria.
It didn’t disappoint me from the first time I used it. I honestly felt it soothed my skin and I felt it thoroughly cleaned my hair and scalp.
