Listed below are top 10 anti dandruff shampoo in India which have been used, reviewed and accepted by the consumers.
Dandruff one of the most common scalp problems means small pieces of dead skin in a person's hair. Wikidpedia states that Dandruff is a skin condition that mainly affects the scalp.
In medical terms, Dandruff known as Seborrheic Dermatitis and an interesting survey shows that more than 70% of Indians have Dandruff. It also states that in India scalp is given low priority whereas more than 70% people across the world care for scalp.
One more interesting fact observed is that incidence of dandruff is more in winter compared to summer. The signs and symptoms of dandruff are an itchy scalp and flakiness.
The main cause of Dandruff is a fungus which feeds on skin oils. The fungus multiplies making the condition severe. Some other factors like Stress, Poor hygiene of scalp, over use or less use of shampoos, Chemical treatments etc. promote dandruff.
Human hair and scalp oil, sebum, has a pH balance of between 4.5 and 5.5. This natural hair acidity prevents fungi and bacteria in the hair and scalp. So if your hair has pH balance <4 or >7, there are chances that your hair can have recurrence of dandruff and even result in hair fall in long run.
Anti dandruff shampoos contain mild cleansing ingredients called Surfactants that remove dirt and serum. They clean the hair and reduce the food source for the fungus. Regular shampoos can wash the scalp well but leave it dry, most dandruff shampoos also moisturize the scalp to some degree.
The majority of dandruff shampoos use active ingredients to temporarily re-balance the scalp's pH balance. The lower numbers are considered more acidic and the higher numbers are alkaline.
The amount of hydrogen in a solution determines whether it is more acidic or alkaline. The higher the pH level the harsher the shampoo is on your hair. The best pH level for shampoo is between 5 and 7.
The primary ingredients of shampoos are water, a detergent (cleaning agent), surfactant (lather making agent), salt, fragrance (natural and artificial), preservative and food coloring.
Ingredients such as Selenium Sulfide and Zinc Pyritheone Nizoral or Kketoconazole, can be used with longer lasting results. The active ingredients include Coal Tar, Salicylic Acid and Sulfur, Ketoconazole, Selenium Sulfide, Zinc Pyrithione etc..

Listed below are certain steps which improve effectiveness of shampoo:
Shampoo is used to clean hair (remove dirt and hair oil). Shampoo can be used daily to clean your hair. They are acidic. It features both detergents and surfactants, a chemical that suds and grabs onto both dirt and oil in the hair, and on the scalp. Shampoo makes your hair feel drier once you leave shower.
People having short hair normally use only shampoo and avoid conditioners.
Conditioner is used to restore moisture to dry hair. Conditioners also supposedly make the hair softer, easier to comb/brush out, and restore shine, body and pH balance to the hair. Conditioners should be ideally used once in 2-3 days.
People in the age group of below 30 may avoid Conditioners. They are basic. Rub the conditioner between your palms first. Then start with the ends of your hair.
Conditioner is full of emollients, such as cetearyl alcohol. What are Emollients?
Well they are class of chemicals that reduces evaporation on the skin and hair, making it feel moist. Emollients work by either attracting water to the skin (humectants), reducing water loss by creating a film on the skin (as in mineral oil), or by restoring deficient materials (expensive skin care, expensive shampoos with "amino acids" or "silk protein"). Conditioner will make your hair feel more smooth and hydrated.
