Recently we have told you how to know if dandruff indicates something more serious. In cases of harmless but uncomfortable dandruff, looking for shampoos with the right ingredients can be a great help.

According to Bustle’s website, to address regular dandruff Dr. Shari Graham Hicks suggests the use of products with mild cleansing agents, moisturizers, salicylic acid, light oils and anti-fungal agents.

In the list of useful ingredients the dermatologist also includes: zinc, selenium sulfide and ketoconazole. Occasionally you can still use a topical steroid product like hydrocortisone – which can be used for a short time to help relieve inflammation in the scalp.

If the problem persists or worsens even after changing your hair care routine including products with these ingredients, it is important that you consult a dermatologist to understand what is going on.
