The Body Shop Ginger Anti Dadruff Shampoo Review

Hello Everyone


The Body Shop Ginger Anti Dadruff Shampoo+anti dandruff solution


I suffer from dandruff, on and off, for more than five years. I have tried everything available to control my dandruff. Last winter, my dandruff aggravated more…I’ve tried Head&Shoulders, Dove, Himalayas, Dabur Vatika and what not!! Thank God, I bought this shampoo.

I would say this is the best Dandruff Shampoo I’ve ever used.

My Experience with The Body Shop’s Anti-Dandruff Ginger Shampoo:

It is colorless gel based shampoo. Its consistency is neither runny nor thick.

Usually I get dandruff back on me the third day after I shampoo.. But with this shampoo, it extends for 4-5 days and the flakes appear less, sometimes no flakes at all.  To be more specific with 4-5 washes, my severe dandruff condition has changed to mild dandruff.  But with regular usage, I found my already dry hair is becoming drier though I used Rainforest Moisture conditioner after shampoo.

So I bought Rainforest Moisture Shampoo and when I used the mixture of both shampoos, my hair escaped from dryness.. As days passed by, I started using very less quantity of this Ginger shampoo along with the Rainforest Moisture Shampoo. Recently I have started to skip this Ginger Shampoo for every wash. I use it once a week or whenever I feel itchiness or flakes.


What I like about The Body Shop’s Anti-Dandruff Ginger Shampoo:-


  • Refreshing Ginger smell.
  • Reduces Dandruff very effectively.
  • Reduces itchiness.
  • Removes hair oil and dirt effectively and easily.
  • With regular usage, my scalp gets very less or no flakes.
  • Very little amount is sufficient; so the bottle lasts longer.
  • Easily available across the globe.
  • Not tested on animals.

What I do not like about The Body Shop’s Anti-Dandruff Ginger Shampoo:-


  • Expensive.
  • Dries the hair with regular usage when used alone. So need to use along with any other mild shampoo.
  • A conditioner is a must after this shampoo.
  • Contains sulphate, silicone and parabens.

My Rating: 4/5


Final Verdict:Body Shop Ginger Anti Dandruff Shampoo


I would recommend this to anyone who suffers from severe dandruff. However, I would not recommend to those with mild dandruff as it has a very major disadvantage of making the hair over-dry. But still if you want to try this, mix a few drops of this shampoo with any other mild shampoo and then use..

I cannot say this is a mild shampoo, so avoid using this daily. Never avoid conditioner after this shampoo; else your hair would look like paper strips.

I would repurchase this for sure (a backup). I continue to use very little and not very frequently. Also, I am thinking whether to go for Pantene Anti-Dandruff Shampoo which Erica has recently reviewed as my dandruff is controlled now.

  1. I love the rainforest moisture one alot..even I have dandruf but that shampoo can be used everyday and doesnt dry out the hair..generally anti-dandruff shampoos are strong and tend to dry out the hair so its better to use a normal shampoo on a daily basis..:)

  2. Oh I wanted to buy this next! :(, it dries out the hair… Dont wanna buy Lush too! It too contains SLS. Gawd! its so complicated!
