I have been noticing more dandruff. Which shampoo is right for me?

What many people do not know is that not all dandruff is the same. In order to make the right choice when it comes to cleansing your hair and scalp, you must differentiate between "oily dandruff" and "dandruff caused by a dry scalp".

"Dry dandruff" is a problem that is caused by a dry scalp. These small, fine flakes of skin develop when the scalp produces too little sebum, thereby losing its natural balance. This results in a dry scalp and dandruff. Dry dandruff is often accompanied by an itchy scalp.

Gentle, moisturising cleansing of the scalp and hair are recommended for a dry scalp. With its gentle shampoo formula, Alpecin Hybrid Caffeine Shampoo is particularly suitable. It moisturises the scalp and promotes its regeneration.

Oily dandruff produces large, plaque-like flakes. It is caused by a greasy scalp. In the first step, Alpecin Double-Effect Caffeine Shampoo loosens the crusted cells of the horny layer and thoroughly frees the scalp of dandruff. The effective anti-dandruff agents salicylic acid and piroctone olamine prevent the formation of new dandruff. In the second step, the caffeine complex recharges the hair with energy.
