Dandruff is the arch-enemy of human scalp. Not only it causes self-esteem problems; dandruff also makes your head itchy and uncomfortable. There are many people suffering dandruff all around the world. Common dandruff is caused by dry scalp, but chronic dandruff is caused by fungal growth. A sweaty and oily environment of a scalp means a feeding ground for dandruff-causing fungus, so make sure that you treat your hair properly. Fungus on your head indeed sounds gross. That’s why dandruff is a big concern. When dandruff occurs, you can always go to the drug store and purchase a dandruff shampoo. Talking about dandruff shampoo, Head & Shoulders and Selsun Blue will easily come to mind. (See also: Neutrogena T Sal Vs T Gel)
With intense marketing on various media (they even have Lionel Messi on one of their ads), probably Head & Shoulders is the most recognized dandruff treatment all over the world. Using Hair & shoulders is a pleasant experience since the odor is distinctly fresh and light. It lathers well, too. Meanwhile, Selsun Blue is not as famous as the Head & shoulders. However, you can consider Selsun Blue as the serious version of Head & Shoulders. It lathers more, and its odor is much stronger. The odor even still lingers around after you rinse thoroughly.
Head & Shoulders contains Pyrithione Zinc as the active anti-fungal material, while Selsun Blue features Selenium Sulfide. The stronger sensation when using Selsun Blue is not for cosmetical effect; Selsun Blue has been proven to work more effectively than Head & Shoulders due to its ingredients. Selsun Blue still works on cases where Head & Shoulders doesn’t show any effect.
