Even better? It only costs £4.99 (now 20 per cent off) to treat your head to some major TLC.

The top-rated shampoo from Neutrogena, which has amassed over 9,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, is loaded with coal tar, which is an ingredient proven to reduce inflammation and help treat itchy flaky scalp disorders. And despite having a strong medicinal scent, fans say it’s worth it for the exceptional results.

‘Results after first wash!’, one shopper wrote. ‘Strong scent – not everyone will like, kind of lingers after washing & drying hair. Day two and product has def soothed the scalp & reduced dandruff after first wash. Highly recommend.’

How to treat dandruff 

Use an anti-dandruff shampoo. There are several different types you can buy from pharmacies or supermarkets.

Look for shampoo containing one of these ingredients:

  • Zinc pyrithione
  • Salicylic acid
  • Selenium sulphide (or selenium sulfide) 
  • Ketoconazole
  • Coal tar

‘This shampoo quickly helps with itching and flaking of the scalp’, another user commented in their five-star review. ‘Hair is left soft, with a beautiful shine. As a medicated shampoo it has an aroma when being washed, but it soon fades away.’

A third shopper added: ‘Great product for someone suffering with itchy flaky scalp. Used twice and noticed an immediate difference.’

As the Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo effectively washes away excess oil and debris, other shoppers claim it helps treat and prevent troublesome scalp acne too.

One wrote: ‘I suffer from scalp acne, and this product has helped reduce it. It has cleaned my scalp, and it’s only been a week.

‘I definitely recommend this to others who suffer from scalp issues. However, it may not work for everyone.’

The Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo is recommended for those with scalp psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff, but it also effectively removes build-up from hair care and styling products and can be used for any hair type.
