If you've got dandruff and don't want to spend a bunch of money fixing it, listen up, because you need Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief shampoo (wow, that's a mouthful) in your life immediately. Dove's products are typically dope and best of all, accessible to most people as you can find them in the drugstore. This stuff right here? Yeah, it fits the bill.
It's a little embarrassing to admit, but my scalp can sometimes look like it's going through the first snowfall of the season if I neglect it. I spend so much time trying to define my curls and keep my frizzies at bay that sometimes I forget my scalp needs some love — until it's too late and my crown is out here looking like the North Pole. Such was the case when I first used this miracle product from Dove. After months of seeing zero flakes, they were back to annoy me and ruin my hairstyles. But Dove's shampoo helped me fight back. When I applied it in the shower, I noticed it lathered up a bit more than the shampoos I usually use. My highly textured kinks and curls usually don't take too kindly to a lather, but as I rinsed I noticed my hair didn't feel super stripped and dry, which was comforting.
I used this lightly scented shampoo along with the accompanying conditioner, which did the rest of the work softening my hair. And what a pair this is. I saw maybe one single flake for the rest of the week thanks to the formula's active ingredient pyrithione zinc, which helps remove and prevent the formation of irritants to the scalp. And I'm not going to count that flake because, who knows? It could have just been some lint I didn't realize was in my hair. What I'm trying to say is that this stuff works. Really well. And it's under $5, so there's no reason not to take it for a spin if you're someone who struggles with dandruff.
