6 Of The Best Anti Dandruff Shampoos For Men

“Is it snowing outside?”, it’s the dreaded question we’ve all heard. If you haven’t been asked this consider yourself lucky, but for many of us dandruff is a real problem. For that reason we’ve tried and tested a whole host of anti-dandruff products in order to determine which is the best anti dandruff shampoo for men.

What Causes Dandruff?

Before we talk products, we thought we’d give you a quick reminder that dandruff is very common and affects around 50% of people. It’s generally occurs in people with an oily complexion, and tends to appear more when hair isn’t washed on a regular basis (at least 2-3 times a week), but can also be caused by dryness. In most cases, frequent use of anti-dandruff shampoo should be enough to leave your hair looking nourished and free of those white flakes.
