Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo

Best Budget Shampoo for Dandruff

Why people love it
  • Works great
  • Keeps itchy, flaky scalp under control
  • Fast results

There are those that can’t handle the smell; it is quite strong.


There are pros and cons to this shampoo for dandruff. On the plus side, the price is right and it has enough backing from real users as evidenced by its status as Amazon #1 best seller. There are also plenty of rave reviews to back it up (particularly interesting is the story about one woman’s cat who appears to be addicted to the smell).

On the downside, this doesn’t work for everyone, nor does it work for every condition. Though it’s supposed to control dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis, not everyone achieves the same results. On the upside, when it works, it works fast – in just a few washes. So, it’s not as if you need to wait around for ages just hoping for a result. But, and this is really important, it’s crucial to follow the directions if you want results.
