One of the (many) downsides of having oily hair is that I often have to deal with dandruff. *sighs* But lately I’ve found a very loyal and trusted ally against this embarrassing and annoying condition: I Provenzali Shampoo All’Erba Cappuccina (Shampoo with Nasturtium). Formulated to fight dandruff, it contains Piroctone Olamine, an anti-fungal and antibacterial agent that has been shown to work well in concentrations as low as 1%.
And once put to the test, it didn’t disappoint. From the very first use, it reduces flaking and itchiness and in a couple of weeks, my dandruff was completely and finally gone! Yay! Of course I keep using this shampoo hoping it’ll prevent it from coming back (and so far it hasn’t) and because I really love how it cleanses my hair.
The shampoo is light orange in color and has a very liquidy and runny consistency, which makes it easy to pour too much product out so be careful when you use it or you’ll have to repurchase it more often than otherwise needed. It also produces a lot of foam but is quite gentle on the hair: it cleanses it well, removing all traces of dirt, impurities and dandruff, while leaving hair soft, smooth and smelling lovely.
I also noticed that since I started using this shampoo, I don’t have to wash my hair as often as I used to. Oily hair gets dirty so fast so I always had to wash it every other day or just use a dry shampoo that would absorb the oil and make it look decent. But now thanks to this shampoo, my hair stays clean for two days after washing, which is a record for me.

I Provenzali Shampoo All’Erba Cappuccina is an effective antidandruff shampoo. It cleanses hair well, leaving it soft and smelling wonderfully while reducing dandruff right from the first application. In addition, it keeps hair clean for longer so I don’t have to wash it as often as I used to. The consistency is very runny though so it’s easy to pour out more product than you need.
