So to begin with, I guess I should probably describe exactly what dandruff is. Well, when the films are essentially cells latest push your old skin cells on the head to the surface, making visible skin. So really, everyone has dandruff because not everyone shed his skin every two weeks or more. But what classifies an individual as having dandruff is the fact that they have a fungus on the head which essentially acts as a catalyst and speeds up the whole process, causing them to shed their skin at a great pace faster. For the treatment of dandruff, the best dandruff shampoo would suffice.

There are currently several dandruff shampoos on the market, and I'm sure many of you have heard and seen some of the commercials on TV. The trick with choosing the best dandruff shampoo is that it is essentially do one thing, and that is to kill the fungus. Some shampoos out there are not necessarily kill the fungus, but rather to reduce the visibility of flakes. One thing you should look for when buying your dandruff shampoo is a product that contains either zinc or ketoconazole. Why these two? Well, there have been many studies done on the effectiveness of these chemicals in eliminating the fungus.

Just as a side note, so you can have visible results of the use of these shampoos, you must leave the shampoo in your hair for at least 20 minutes, not 5 minutes on the package. Also, try not to use the same product continuously, but rather alternate between two or three different products to prevent your body from getting used to a particular type. There should also be aware that there are many cheaper natural alternatives that can be made in your own kitchen and are equally effective in killing the fungus.
