Selsun Blue Deep Cleaning, Dandruff ShampooAs the seasons change and the air dries out, I find myself having to care for my skin differently. This means more moisturizer, thicker creams and it’s back to anti-dandruff shampoo for me. I actually purchased the Selsun Blue Deep Cleaning, Dandruff Shampoo a while back, because it was a decent price at Target. I thought I might like it better than Head and Shoulders or Fructis’s anti-dandruff shampoo. It’s a new product and I probably wouldn’t have purchased it had I not seen the product.

Selsun Blue Deep Cleaning, Dandruff Shampoo comes in a blue bottle and is a clear gel with “micro-beads” for scrubbing. The beads themselves are soft and not scrubbable at all. Maybe they’re supposed to be the bursting type like in some body washes. All I know is, they’re useless.

That’s not to say that the product is bad as a whole; however, it’s also not as good as I’d like it to be. This shampoo works only if I use it every day. Things get ugly the day I stop using it. This is problematic for me because some days I like to use my good smelling shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo doesn’t smell bad just not especially good, either. It smells clean and not as feminine as I like to smell.

But when I stop using it for a day — bam! — flakes. Eww. I’ve used shampoos before that effectively stopped dandruff in its tracks and remained effective for at least a day (but usually more) so I could use another shampoo when I wanted. Come to think of it, Head and Shoulders smells better and offers shampoo/conditioners combos. Looks like I’m not a convert this time.

Another thing, the bottle has a ton of nooks and crannies and it may just be my hard water, but gunk likes to collect and grow there. Gross.
