Best for: Dry, itchy scalp
If you suffer from a dry scalp or dandruff but don’t want a chemical-shampoo, this is the best luxury shampoo on the market for you. Anti-fungal ingredients Piroctone Olamine and Climbazole are said to be gentler on skin that ingredients used in cheaper anti-dandruff products. cultbeauty.co.uk
