      Although I don’t have severe dandruff, I do get the occasional flakes during the winter months, and I do get an itchy scalp when it’s really cold and dry outside. I have tried medicated shampoos in the past, and overall they are all good for removing flakes and moisturizing my scalp. What I don’t like is the medicine smell that most of them leave behind in my hair even after I rinse.

      Selsun Blue is a medicated dandruff shampoo that works pretty well for me. It’s main ingredient is selenium sulfide, which is the same as you will find in most dandruff shampoos. I have also tried less expensive store brand shampoos for dandruff and I think they all basically do the same thing.

      The thing that sets Selsun Blue apart


      from the others is that I didn’t notice the smell was as strong as it sometimes is with other brands. All dandruff treatments I’ve tried have a strong smell that isn’t exactly pleasant, more medicine-like. Selsun Blue seems to be less offensive in that way, although it still does have a medicated shampoo smell. But once it’s rinsed out, I don’t notice it anymore.

      The shampoo lathers up really well and you can feel it penetrating into the scalp. It leaves your hair feeling refreshed after you rinse it out. I always follow it with a heavy conditioner, though, because using the Selsun Blue too much leaves my hair feeling like straw. There are harsh chemicals in it, so I only use it occasionally when my scalp ...


      • is especially dry or itchy.

        The results I get from this medicated shampoo are always good. It gets rid of any flakes I may have and it soothes my itchy scalp. I have even found it to be effective on other parts of my body that might have dry flaky skin during the winter months. I have used it as a body wash on my elbows and knees and it seems to clear up the flaky skin there, too. I just put some of the shampoo in a washcloth and scrub the dry skin right off. I always make sure to follow up with a moisturizing lotion, too.

        Selsun Blue is one of the more expensive medicated shampoos out there. I paid about $10 for the last bottle I

        purchased, and I have seen it for as much as $13 for a bottle. But a bottle lasts me a really long time since I only use it once in a while. During the summer months I don’t need to use it at all since I never get the dry itchy scalp unless it’s cold out. I would say I purchase this product only about once every six months or so.

        Overall I like this product and for me, it does what it is supposed to. Like I said, my dandruff isn’t severe, so I can only say how it works for mild dandruff and scalp itch. For those things, it does a good job. I would recommend it to anyone looking to clear up dandruff and soothe an itchy dry scalp.

    Start by rinsing your hair, which would help to lather. Apply a quarter-sized amount to your hair. Let it sit for about 2 minutes. Rinse it out. Follow this same process again and rinse it out again.
