Alpecin Dandruff Killer Shampoo 250ml
Does what it says on the bottle.
I have been fighting a losing battle with dandruff for the past couple of years. It's embarrassing, unsightly and uncomfortable. After using various anti dandruff shampoos and resorting to organic treatments and oils, I was ready for giving up and going back to nature and not washing my hair at all.
I saw this in my local Boots and thought I may as we'll try it as it's new. The price isn't too bad based on other treatments I've tried. It looks like any other AD shampoo so I thought I'd leave it on for 10 minutes to let it sink in.
My scalp started stinging after 5 minutes then it drained into my eyes and there was some swearing. Boy, it stings your eyes!
I looked on the packaging and it contains a mild acid to get rid of the flakes in your hair, as well as 2 other ingredients to kill the bacteria that cause dandruff and treat your scalp.
After 2 days I noticed a decrease in my dandruff, and after 5 days it had gone!
I'm using it every day in a small amount to keep the dandruff at bay. I might start using it every other day and see what happens, but for now - result! Extremely pleased with this shampoo. Just don't get it in your eyes.

I usually suffer mild dandruff, but after using quite a few new hair products lately I've noticed my dandruff getting more noticeable. So decided to treat my scalp to a more intensive dandruff targeting shampoo.
After trawling the shelves in Boots this one seemed to offer what I was looking for in a shampoo. Upon using I noticed it didn't lather that well and tried my best to work it into my scalp and left it on there for a couple of minutes. After rinsing my hair felt quite dried out and coarse so I had to use an intensive conditioner on the ends to perk it up.
When completely dry my hair still didn't feel normal and still had some dandruff. I really wouldn't recommend daily use of this shampoo as I continued with it and it left my hair looking really dull and prone to split ends. I've since used another dandruff treatment shampoo that is cheaper and works so much better.

Fantastic can feel the difference after first use.
I cannot recommend this product enough. Recommended by a friend as I have a dry flaky itchy scalp when I am stressed. Started working after 1st use. Have used it every couple of days and my head is flake free and itching has stopped. Won't use any other shampoo now. Brilliant stuff.
