OneClickReview's take:

The first thing you will notice when you open the bottle of Himalaya Anti-Dandruff Shampoo is the fragrance, which is mild and pleasant. Due to its natural ingredients like Tea tree oil, Grapessed Oil, Indian Sarasaparilla and Aloe Vera the shampoo lathers well on wetting the hair and generously massaging it. Due to the absence of surfactant like the SLES, the oil removing effect is minimal making it difficult to remove it if your hair is heavily oiled, eventually you will have to apply twice the amount of shampoo to get rid of the oil and dirt.

Well, it doesn’t help you to get rid of the dandruff immediately but it does reduce the visible flakes on the scalp. It has a soothing effect on your hair, but the only drawback is that excess use of Himalaya Anti-Dandruff shampoo will damage your hair. The shampoo can be used twice or thrice in a week depending on how you spend your day outside. Regular and excess usage will not only damage your hair but will also make your scalp dry and itchy.

Our take on the Shampoo: Although the shampoo is mild, it does help you to get rid of the dandruff not entirely, but till some extent.

We have classified Himalaya Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Review within the following parameters:


The shampoo is pale white in colour and a little runny in consistency compared to other shampoos.

Hair Shine

The shampoo does get rid of dandruff to an extent, but the good part ends there. Himalaya Anti-Dandruff Shampoo doesn’t give your hair the shine which you require.

Hair Smoothness

It does a good job of conditioning the hair during the wash. There is no actual need to follow up the shampoo with a conditioner.


Himalaya Anti-Dandruff has a mild and pleasant fragrance. It smells of ripe guava, though they are nowhere in the ingredient list.

Customer Satisfaction

Customers are not so happy with the product. Due to its mild composition, the customer will have to wash multiple times get rid of the oil, dirt and dandruff.

Although, the shampoo is effective on dandruff due to its runny consistency and mildness the price at which it being sold is a bit high,  hence not value for money.
