Most Helpful Positive Review For serious dandruff
I was having a hard time getting rid of my flakes, it was embarrassing. I usually used Selsum Blue once a week and that would work, but for the past months things got worse. It was to the point I thought I'd have to go to the dermatologist. One day I'd have a clean scalp, the next day I'd have pieces of flakes to take out of my hair. I asked the cashier what they recommended for bad dandruff and they suggested this product by Redken, the price wasn't bad if it truly worked and it does! I'm so happy with this product! It has a light and fresh scent, nothing medicine like about it. I've had it for a month, use it once a week and I have yet to see ANY resemblance of what I had going on before :D I will definitely repurchase!
Most Helpful Critical Review Dandruff or Hair Loss?
I decided to get a dandruff shampoo after noticing flakes on my pillow. I was told by a stylist not to use Head and Shoulders, and the natural shampoo I tried helped with the itchiness but didn't rinse out well. The good reviews made me want to try this one.
After the first use, my scalp felt cleaner, which was a plus. However, I also noticed I was pulling a lot more loose hair out of my comb than usual. Thinking that was possibly from skipping a day of washing my hair, I decided to try it again the next day. Same thing, plus I'm noticing a burning/tingling feeling in some spots. I've also had a few pimple-like sores pop up, but I'm not sure if they're from the shampoo, the conditioner I used, or the combination of the two.
Bottomline, this is going back.

Okay so I'm a cheap-o and mix this product in with my purple shampoo & another nice/less expensive shampoo. I follow the instructions and leave it on my scalp for 5 mins prior to rinsing. It has helped drastically reduce my itchiness/flakes. Before this I was using Selsun Blue, but you get what you pay for- this is much higher quality.
This product saved my scalp
Dee from Santa Rosa, CA
I (unfortunately) have struggled with dandruff for years. I had also used head and shoulders for years. I recently got my hair done, and needed a color safe option to combat my dry scalp. This product SAVED my scalp! I'll admit, the first two washes were rough. My dandruff got worse than it had ever been and I was so embarrassed. But I stuck with it, and now my dandruff and itchy scalp don't bother me at all. I use this product twice a week, and my scalp has never looked better. I have to admit it is a little drying on my hair, but I'd rather deal with that than dandruff (especially because I can go longer between washes now)!
I have been using this for over a year!
Izzy from San Antonio, TX
I use this every time I wash my hair. I still remember the first time I used this and the results came immediately!! It got rid of all my itchiness and flaking and it still has yet to come back.
I would buy this product again and again and over and over

my uncle in australia is using this product for his salon and he recommend it to me, the results was just fantastic and i think i'll keep using it for a lomg time, and this product is that great for scalp relief
Good as a dandruff shampoo
Debra63 from Bloomington, IL
I would use this Redken dandruff shampoo when my hair & scalp feel dry. I would use it for a couple of times, then go back to other shampoos.
Would purchase product again!

My husband has scalp issues where he has a lot of flakes, and his scalp is always itchy. He got a shampoo from the doctor and tried others as well but it doesn't soothe the itch for him. He has used this shampoo for two weeks now and he really hasn't been scratching! It works great!
Gets rid of flakes fast!
marker from CT
I randomly started getting dandruff so I picked this up since I really like other Redken products. I only had to use it twice to immediately notice a difference. Thanks to this shampoo I am flake free!
I would never buy this product again!

Need the original formula; will not buy this again!
overpriced head and shoulders
Jord from 08742
it's literally the same thing as head and shoulders, but more expensive. if anything head and shoulders works better lol
For stubborn oily hair
Sakura_neko from Reno, NV
I have tried several dandruff shampoos and this is the only one that eliminates my dandruff and clears up my overly oily hair. I tried "training" my scalp for a year to produce less oil, and nothing worked. I came to accept my oily hair. I am the type of person that has to shower everyday and by 5pm my scalp is oily again. This shampoo has worked wonders. I can now shampoo my scalp every other day and use "Big Sexy Hair" dry shampoo(red bottle) on the days that I do not wash my hair. This shampoo is also really great at clearing up "buildup" on my scalp from my dry shampoo.
One Use & Flakes Are Gone!
A. Marie from NH
There is no question that dandruff is embarrassing. I have never used a product before to eliminate dandruff, as mine is seasonal & typically doesn't stay around too long. After it being prevalent and increasingly worse for too long, I decided to take action. I researched ALL kinds of products & decided to try this. O M G.. after one use my flakes were gone ( which I was not expecting ). My scalp feels so relieved, so fresh & I can finally feel more confident.

Doesn't help dandruff at all. It has a nice smell but that's it.
Not safe for color treated hair
RosieA from Los Angeles
Totally stripped the color from my hair. Would not recommend if you have color treated hair and saw little improvement to dandruff.

I keep buying and keep using as needed with good results.

Helps me and my husband with the dry winter dandruff.
Finally found a great dandruff shampoo
ymd from Phoenix, AZ
Love this shampoo! To be clear, it's not an instant miracle - it took a few uses and follow the directions. I'm a wash, rinse, repeat kind of girl so, on the second wash I scrub it in to my scalp really well and let it sit while I carry on with my shower to let the medication really work. After about the third use, omg the difference in my scalp!
Does the opposite

This stuff literally gives me more dandruff lol

The best dandruff shampoo.

This stuff works!

I have sensitive skin and scalp and love this product. I trust Redken products and this is just another of their products you can count on. Thank you
Quazel from Maryland
I have trained my hair to only be washed once a week. Dandruff shampoos that need constant use won't work on my hair. My stylist told me dandruff shampoo is really a scalp treatment, not a shampoo. His advice was to massage the shampoo onto my dry scalp before getting in the shower, leave it in 5-10 minutes, then wash it out in the shower. I then use my regular Redken Magnetics shampoo on the length of my hair. Following these instructions, I only have to use Redken Scalp Relief once a month. Using a different brand, I had to use dandruff shampoo every wash. My colored hair and scalp look and feel great. Love this stuff!
Anna from California
I bought this really hoping it would work because I've had dandruff for years now. The sensation is nice when using but didn't really do anything for my dandruff. It felt like it really dried out my hair also.

My son uses this for his dandruff and it has helped so much. I would always recommend redken products.
Yes! A dandruff shampoo that leaves your hair looking great
Style it! from San Jose, CA
If you have a dry scalp and need to use a dandruff shampoo to control dry skin, this is it! It works like any good hair product to clean and condition your hair and leave it looking soft and manageable.
JB from San Diego
I suffer from mild to medium dandruff and itchiness. I've tried dozens of dandruff shampoos. So far the best is Phyto's Pytheol Intense but when I use a dandruff shampoo for too long it stops working so I tend to change it up when the bottle runs out. Redken brings minor relief to a major problem but doesn't solve my dandruff problem. I have highlights so I don't wash my hair everyday, maybe every other or every two days. When I do was I use this product exactly as directed. In 3 weeks I've seen a minor difference but the dandruff is still there. It didn't do what expected, which is get rid of the dandruff completely (like Phyto) and stop the itchiness. I'm going to TRY and return this product.
