Unfortunately like a few others have experienced, this turned my hair to straw after one use. I only used it on my scalp, but obviously you can’t avoid it rinsing down the rest of your hair. I’m really bummed!

This is the only dandruff shampoo that has actually cleared my seborrheic dermatitis. I also have a patch of psoriasis that flares up from time to time and this helps calm it down. Would recommend if your scalp is struggling!

I learned at 35 that the dry skin in my T-zone is actually a dermatitis. So I tried this on a dermatologist recommendation and I love it. I’ve been using it for months and I don’t have any issues with dry skin in my T-zone anymore.

This product has 100% fixed my dandruff! I’ve had dandruff flare-ups for the past 6 years and always struggle to find a product that fixes it. Within a week or 2 of using this shampoo (and only using it once or twice a week) my dandruff is completely gone. I’ve gone through a full bottle and just ordered another! Also it’s such a good price.

This stuff is magic! I saw it shown by a dermatologist on TikTok (embarrassing I know) and figured it was worth a try. My son has what is basically cradle cap (but at age 6) on his head. We have battled it for years. Using this…. It’s literally gone. I’m so happy!

Great for fragrance sensitive kids! Cleared up our toddler’s flaky scalp within a few uses. She’s wildly sensitive to fragranced anything on her skin so this was an amazing find. Kept her curls intact and not dry like other dandruff shampoos.

This brand is all I use in my hair now. Every once in a while I get adventurous and think I can try a more salon type product and always end up with a dry, itchy scalp. This is the only thing that works to heal my scalp.

Vanicream Dandruff Shampoo

Brittbrat - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
This is the absolute BEST shampoo for dandruff I have ever used. I was having extremely bad dandruff that my scalp burned all day it was causing me so many problems, that I could not even get a good night's rest because my scalp always felt like it was on fire. I tried so many shampoos and was planning to go to a dermatologist. While making an order for their moisturizer (which is an amazing product as well), this shampoo came up as a recommendation, so I thought I might as well try it. Well, boy, am I glad I did. Within the 1st week of using this, the buring on my scalp was almost non-existent. By week 2, the burning was completely gone, and my dandruff was under control. 3 months later, there is still no burning and no dandruff. I refuse to put any other shampoo on my scalp!

Glad to finally have found a "clean" / "low tox" dandruff shampoo. I really like that there is no fragrance or perfume. I find the shampoo to be pretty concentrated, I only need to use just a little bit to get lots of suds! It cleans well and works effectively for the intended use.

I use this shampoo to treat malassezia folliculitis on my face and neck. It does an incredible job of calming and clearing the breakouts. (If you suspect you're dealing with fungal acne, give this a try.) After using so MANY other products with disappointing results, I'm happy to have found a winner with Vanicream. I appreciate, too, that this is fragrance-free and contains 2% pyrithione zinc.

This is an excellent dandruff shampoo without any smell! We can't use Head and Shoulders Shampoo anymore because of family members with allergies to the smell. But this shampoo has no smell and works really well. Thank you Vanicream! Hope this product never gets discontinued! if you are looking for an anti-dandruff shampoo that has no smell and works well, this is it!

I’m not sure what it is but vanicream products all give me a rash. I always here that it’s the best one for sensitive skin but Korean skincare has worked out better for my sensitive skin. I thought I’d give this one a try bc it’s for hair but it gave me a scalp rash.

Unscented help for tinea versicolor

MelJ1026 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I ordered this to treat tinea versicolor on my chest because it’s unscented and I trust the Vanicream brand to be really good. I apply to my chest with a very small amount of water and let it sit for ten minutes then rinse in shower. It is totally unscented and rinses completely. It has exceeded my expectations and I would definitely repurchase.

The active ingredient in this shampoo helps my scalp issues. I use it one or twice a week and it isn't too overdying. I wish my local Target would carry this and/or it was easliy availble through Target's wesbite. It always seems out of stock.
