The Best Shampoo For A Dry, Itchy Scalp?!

Welcome back to Haley’s Beauty Room! Today we are going to get up close and personal and discuss some things that make most of us feel self conscious.

Do not worry, we are all friends here and we will find a solution together. So what solution may that be? A solution to that dry, itchy, flaky scalp? The scalp that always has dandruff and is constantly uncomfortable? I think I have found our saving grace. This product is much better than Head & Shoulders and contains quality ingredients that are safe for the whole family.

So, are you interested in leaving dandruff and itchiness behind for a healthy scalp and beautiful hair? If so, then keep on reading!


Pura D’Or is an all-natural haircare brand that focuses on providing solutions to the biggest hair problems out there. They are best known for their hair loss prevention line. What I love most about this brand is that all of their products are free of harsh chemicals and contain no parabens or sulfates. They are also hypoallergenic, color safe, and gluten free.

Pura D’Or features key natural ingredients such as Biotin, Argan Oil, Pumpkin Seed, Hibiscus, He Shou Wu, Black Cumin, and other essentials oils. This brand would be great for those that have sensitive skin or are irritated by harsh chemicals. Plus, it is safe for the whole family!

Product & Claims

Pura D’Or offers a wide range of products. You can view their whole offering on their website, Today I just want to talk about the one I have been using every single time I wash my hair. This product has completely eliminated any trace of dandruff from my scalp and my hair has never been this shiny or thick.

The product I am talking about is the Pura D’Or Scalp Therapy Shampoo. This shampoo is meant to soothe dry scalps. It contains a blend of Aloe Vera, Vitamin B, Vitamin E, and other natural ingredients to nourish your scalp.

This product claims to:

  • Control Flaking
  • Relieve Scaling and Itching
  • Soothe the Scalp
  • Moisturize Hair

The natural ingredients provide these benefits in the product:

  • Tea Tree, Peppermint Oil, and Lavender Oil help calm itchy scalp due to dryness
  • Biotin encourages healthy, stronger hair
  • Vitamin B & E help keep scalp healthy
  • Cedar Wood & Patchouli Oil nourish and calm the scalp
  • Zinc helps prevent scalp from itching and flaking
  • Argan Oil helps heal and nourish scalp

Price & Where to Purchase

You can purchase this product and other Pura D’Or items from CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Kroger, Ulta Beauty, and other select retailers. Check out this store locator on Pura’s website to find a location near you.

I purchased my shampoo from Ulta Beauty for $19.99 and it comes with 16 oz. of product. Ulta occasionally has a sale on this brand for Buy 1 Get 1 50% off.


You need to apply this to wet hair and massage in to your scalp. The key part of this product is that you need to leave it on for 2 minutes. This ensures that your scalp can absorb the ingredients and they can penetrate it for best results.

Just a heads up, because this product is totally free of all sulfates (the chemical foaming agent), you will not get a lot of suds when massaging in. I like a lot of suds, so I just use a few extra pumps of the product and it works perfectly.

I follow up with either my Matrix Biolage Fiberstrong Conditioner or my Macadamia Ultra Rich Moisture Masque. I have also used the Pura D’Or Healing Conditioner (which is awesome by the way), and will be purchasing that product again once I run out of my current conditioners.

Final Thoughts

I totally stand by the claims of this product, as I have seen all of them first hand on my head. My dandruff is eliminated, which was the main goal. My scalp is also moisturized and my hair is soft and shiny. The itchiness is totally gone and I actually feel like less hair is in the drain after I am done showering.

It’s a great feeling knowing I am using quality ingredients that won’t irritate my skin. Also, I do color my hair and I have not experienced any fading or issues since using this product. It is marketed as color safe as well.

As I am writing this post I keep touching my hair, which I washed last night, and it still feels super clean and soft. I previously had issues with my hair getting oily not too long after I shampooed. Now, I feel that I can go longer without cleansing and my hair doesn’t get oily as fast.

All in all, this product is great and the price really isn’t bad on it. If you catch it on sale, definitely scoop it up.
