    Comments about Kenra Professional Dandruff Shampoo:

    I have struggled with dandruff build up on my scalp for many years. And now my preteen daughter is struggling with it. This shampoo, although expensive, has helped our scalp so much! We only use it 2 or 3 times a week, which is how often we wash our hair. We are on our second bottle only because our build up was very bad. I can actually scratch my head and not have build up under my nails! That is huge to me, since I have suffered from scalp build up for so long!

    Good for itchy, but too heavy for fine hair

    By princessleia

    Comments about Kenra Professional Dandruff Shampoo:

    I used this shampoo for about a year. I get patches of irritated and itchy skin on my scalp. This shampoo took care of the itching, and it seemed pretty gentle. It has no silicones, which is great. A few months ago I noticed that my scalp around my hairline was extremely dry. I did a lot of research on dry scalp and decided to switch shampoos to a tea tree-based shampoo (yes to tea tree and sage oil shampoo) and I realized how much buildup I was getting on my scalp from this shampoo (the Kenra) that the new shampoo washed off. So, it took care of the itching, which was priority 1. But it didn't help the dryness, and I guess was causing some buildup on my fine hair. If you have medium to thick hair, or don't have a dryness problem, this is a great shampoo.

          Unfortunately this didn't work for my dandruff but did give me great volume. I like Kendra products and I feel like their volumizing line actually does what it says so I really wanted this to help with my dandruff too. It didn't work for me but I'm sure it could for others.

          Serves its purpose of eliminating dry scalp but best to use once a week. Supplement with other shampoo on other days.

            Comments about Kenra Professional Dandruff Shampoo:

            I have suffered with seborrhea dermatitis for a long time. I have used several different dandruff shampoo's that dried out my scalp and hair. Plus they did nothing for the dermatitis. A dermatologist recommended this shampoo. It's a little pricey but I figured that I had nothing to lose but the money if it didn't work. On the first use I had improved results. I would say that within the first week my scalp was healed. Finally some relief. It also doesn't strip your color treatment out, if you color your hair. I thought that I would use up the last of my old shampoo occasionally since I don't like to waste things. I started having the same problems immediately. I won't do that again. I stocked up on the Kenra and will use only this from now on. THANK YOU KENRA!

                      The Kenra Professional website says that the Kenra Dandruff Shampoo is formulated with Zinc Pyrithione, but that is not listed as an ingredient on the Ulta website. Does this product contain Zinc Pyrithione?

                        Yes it does contain Zinc Pyrithione. I apologize about that, it looks like that ingredient is missing on the website.

                        Platinum Revive Shampoo and Conditioner is best for removing build up in the hair, adding moisture and shine to over processed hair. It is specifically formulated for color treated hair.

                    • Q:

                      I see that this product seems to work well in regards to dandruff control but my question is this safe on colored treated hair? I get my dark hair colored purple and the color never lasts long in general and I also need a dandruff shampoo. Therefore will this dandruff shampoo not fade out my color? Any other suggestions on dandruff shampoo that doesn't fade out color?
                      Thanks!
