Shampoo that won't make my scalp itch

Post by brothers » Sat Sep 15, 2018 4:47 pm

Lately, I have been using some shampoo that had been left behind by some family members who had recently lived with us for a short period of time. It's called dove. My scalp itches morning and night. It's got to be the shampoo. Does anyone have a recommendation for a non itchy shampoo?

Gary, we buy Pantene brand in the big bottles at either Sam’s or Costco. No itching and also, I don’t bother with conditioner. I think it’s good stuff.
Best regards,

I’ve used Head and Shoulders for years with no ill-effects.

Itchy scalp is a common Dove shampoo side affect. I have used The Body Shop Ginger scalp care shampoo for the past several years. It's excellent and has never caused me any itchiness or other side effects.

Best of luck finding a product that works for you.

Among the solid shampoo bars, if that's a choice for you, the ones with tea tree oil - such as Mike's Natural - are very soothing to the scalp.

First things first, I stopped using Dove! Currently evaluating the alternatives including all of your recommendations. This will take some time, but at least my main complaint has been addressed. Thanks for your help!
