10 Best Shampoos for Dandruff and Hair Fall in Malaysia for 2023

We've already shared with you the best shampoos for hair loss in Malaysia for 2020, now we're turning our sights to hair fall and dandruff. It's a noisy world out there, especially when it comes to shampoo product advertisements. Finding one that works for you, however, can be easier said than done. But we’re here to help.

Dandruff is common condition that causes flaky skin on your scalp. This skin often falls off, leaving white flakes on your shoulders.

Some people with dandruff go on to develop hair fall. Is dandruff to blame?

In most cases, dandruff doesn’t directly cause hair fall. However, the itchiness it causes can lead to scratching. This can injure your hair follicles, leading to some hair loss, though not complete baldness. In addition, dandruff can increase hair loss in people with androgenic alopecia, a condition that causes male- and female-pattern baldness.

If you haven’t already, try using a medicated shampoo designed to help with dandruff. Look for products containing any of the following ingredients:
  • pyrinthione zinc
  • salicylic acid
  • ketoconazole
  • selenium sulfide 
For mild cases of dandruff, you may only need to use medicated shampoo for a few weeks.

If you have light-colored hair, you may want to stay away from selenium sulfide, which can cause discoloration.
