The product

Ah, dandruff. Yep, we’re talking about those pesky little itchy flakes. Often associated with having a dry scalp (although not always true), dandruff  is genuinely the bane of existence for anyone who deals from it. Well no longer do you need to reach for the overly ‘medical’ branded shampoos for ultimate results. DERCOS Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo for Dry Hair is changing the dandruff-fighting haircare game entirely. 

This Chemist Warehouse exclusive is melding the worlds of skin care and haircare with unique ingredients that really work. The dermatologically-tested shampoo range includes salicylic acid, the best chance to rid your scalp of dryness and dandruff. Oh, and did we mention DERCOS works to rid your scalp of dandruff long-term? Yep, these skin care ingredients work to completely rebalance your scalp’s microbiome in just a matter of weeks!

The panel

BEAUTYcrew sent the DERCOS Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo for Dry Hair to a range of members aged 25-34 with dry hair suffering from mild to severe dandruff.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the DERCOS Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo for Dry Hair.

The moisture-boosting properties: For the ‘dry hair’ variant of the DERCOS range our Review Crew® all started the trial with dandruff and a dry scalp on their ‘to deal with’ list. So the fear for our members was that the product would leave their hair dry and brittle, even if it dealt with their scalp dryness. However, they were thrilled to find that both their hair and scalps saw moisture-boosting benefits.

The refreshing scalp-cleansing benefits: The rise of the ‘skinification’ trend has seen the rise in demand for skin care-meets-haircare products in the dandruff fighting market. Our members loved that DERCOS had shaken up the ‘typical’ dandruff shampoo, with the unique skin care-like ingredients leaving them with a cleansed and refreshed (read: flake-free) scalp. 

The scratch-busting relief: Even if you don’t suffer from dandruff like our members, if you’ve dealt with a dry scalp you know how uncomfortable and itchy it can be. Well, add the extra itch of the dreaded white flakes and you’ll be wanting to tear at your scalp (like our reviewers). But with a few washes our Review Crew® were able to feel major relief from their former scratch-prone selves.

The verdict

“DERCOS Anti-Dandruff DS Shampoo for Dry Hair is a game-changer. Its soothing formula effectively tackles dandruff, relieving an itchy, irritated scalp. What sets it apart is the moisture it imparts to dry hair. It leaves locks soft and manageable, unlike other harsh anti-dandruff shampoos. The subtle scent is a bonus. With consistent use, it delivers long-lasting results, making it a must-try for those with dry hair and dandruff concerns. A reliable and effective solution in a convenient bottle. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a solution for dry hair and dandruff issues. Give it a try, and say goodbye to a flaky and itchy scalp!”

“This product, formulated to combat dandruff, has not only relieved my itchy scalp but has also effectively eliminated those pesky white flakes. One of the standout features of this shampoo is how well it lathers. Right from the first application, it produces a rich, luxurious lather that makes the whole washing experience feel thorough. This not only ensures that it's easy to distribute the product throughout my hair but also leaves me with a refreshing sensation. The most noticeable change for me has been the relief from the persistent itchiness I used to experience. As someone who has struggled with an itchy scalp, this product has been a game-changer. My scalp now feels cleansed and refreshed after each use, and I no longer have to constantly worry about itching or flakes.”

“This Shampoo really caught my eye. Generally, anti-dandruff shampoo can be generic and more catered toward the male hair. Thankfully DERCOS is made with formulas for different hair types. I have dry hair, so I must be picky with my shampoo. I also like the ingredients in this shampoo. Salicylic Acid is a great way to exfoliate the hair and remove dry flaky skin. My hair has been nurtured well. It feels soft, healthy and full. Not many shampoos can do that, so I am glad I gave this a try.”
