How to Fight Dandruff & Seborrheic Dermatitis Without Damaging Natural Hair

Mastering a natural hair routine can be tricky enough. Throw in a scalp condition, like seborrheic dermatitis, and finding the perfect wash day routine becomes almost impossible.

Lucky for me, brands like Head & Shoulders work to make products that are tough on dandruff, yet gentle on hair. And even luckier for me, I got the opportunity to test out and review the Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Clinical Solutions Itch Relief Dandruff Shampoo and Leave-On Dandruff Treatment.

  • Zinc pyrithione promotes a healthy scalp

My Results

The shampoo left my hair feeling clean without feeling stripped of all its moisture. The scent is pleasant and fresh. It did a great job at lifting stubborn dandruff. The leave-on treatment did a great job picking up where the shampoo left off, removing everything left behind. I’m completely in love with it.

As a curly girl, it’s not advantageous to wash my hair more than once a week. The leave-on treatment is perfect for spot treating in between wash days, allowing naturals to stretch the time in between washes without enduring an itchy or flakey scalp.

The Pros:

  • Not Drying
  • Works to lift stubborn dandruff
  • Relieves and prevents itchy scalp
  • Fresh scent


I really enjoyed using the Head & Shoulders Clinical Solutions Itch Relief Dandruff Shampoo and Leave-On Dandruff Treatment. I highly recommend it to curly girls who struggle with dandruff and/or itchy scalp as an affordable option. The products can be purchased for $12.99 each on Find them both here:
