I have some dandruff, not severe, but still annoying. I bought some Head and Shoulders, but I hate the way it smells, so I don't use it often enough. Any suggestions?Can you recommend a dandruff shampoo that doesn't smell bad?
head and shoulders is really good and they got some new smells that smell good and if u dont like those smells just mix the head and shoulders shampo with any other shampoo that u like and there u go and if dont like that idea theres always selsun blueCan you recommend a dandruff shampoo that doesn't smell bad?
Try Neutrogena Triple Moisture, or the new Head and Shoulders. I don't have bad dandruff, but they seem to work well and smell pretty good. :)
did u try selsun blue
Actually I was going to say that Head and Shoulders has a new fragrance out that actually smells quite nice. Stay away from the original.
i buy selsum blue or selsum salon. it works really good and smells good (not great but it might work!)
you can use vinegar or vodka to help with the dandruff just add to the shampoo and or rinse your hair with it before you use your new shampoo
I actually kind of like the smell of Head n' Shoulders :)
Ice Cap shampoo and conditioner its from Graham webb
dove sothing anti danduff shampoo with 1/4 moistures n milk

There is a new Herbal Essences called Hello Hydration. It's not a dandruff shampoo, but it helps to hydrate your hair, and worked to get rid of my dandruff. It smells like coconuts, I love it.
A person can use Scalpicin, which is not a shampoo but a treatment that can be directly applied to the scalp, it has virtually no smell...and it works!
Seabreeze antiseptic (yeah, the kind you use on your face.) can be used as well...
To take care of the issue in a more out of the box way you can try:
Black currant/evening primrose oils Add black current or evening primrose oil to your diet. These oils contain gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid hard to get in the diet that helps hair, skin and nails look healthy. Many people who are on low or no-fat diets lack essential fatty acids. Start with 500 mg twice a day. If the dandruff starts to clear up, cut the dose in half. It may take up to two months to begin seeing results.
Vitamin E To relieve itching and reduce scaling, rub vitamin E oil into your scalp.
Aloe vera Thoroughly rub a thick gel of aloe vera leaves into the scalp; leave overnight; shampoo in the morning.
Apple cider vinegar Apple cider vinegar will help restore the proper acid/alkaline balance of the scalp and kill a bacteria that clogs the pores that release oil to the scalp. The clogged pores result in scales and crusts being formed. Apply apple cider vinegar diluted 50% with water to the scalp and let dry. There is no need to rinse. Another similar remedy suggests pouring two tablespoons into a cup, applying the straight vinegar to the scalp, and leaving it on from 15 minutes to three hours before shampooing. Lemon juice may also be used. It is the acid in these remedies that helps bring the scalp back into chemical balance.
Coconut oil Rub some pure coconut oil in your hair daily. The dandruff should clear up in a few days.
Grapefruit seed extract Mix 7-10 drops with the normal amount of shampoo you use. Massage into your hair and leave on for at least 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water, avoiding contact with eyes.
Listerine For mild cases of dandruff, use the mouthwash Listerine. It has antiseptic properties. Do not use on cases where the skin is broken as the Listerine can be irritating.
Ginger Combine olive oil and ginger root and apply to your scalp before shampooing. If your dandruff is really bad, put the mixture on 10-15 minutes before shampooing.
Rosemary Rub rosemary oil or a mixture of olive oil and crushed rosemary leaves into your scalp and leave on for 15 minutes.
Tea Make a tea of either sage or burdock and use as a rinse after shampooing.
Thyme Make a rinse by boiling four heaping teaspoons of dried thyme in two cups of water for ten minutes; strain and allow to cool. Massage this tea in your clean, damp hair; do not rinse out. The oil from the thyme has antiseptic properties.
I found this on the web, hope it helps...
