Characterized by flaking of the skin on the scalp, dandruff is a common skin condition that affects adults and children alike. Dandruff has two main causes, seborrheic dermatitis, and Malassezia. Often referred to as “cradle cap” in children, seborrheic dermatitis leads to oily, red, and scaly skin that can flake off, creating dandruff. Malassezia, a yeast-like fungus that occurs naturally on the scalp, can become overactive and cause the skin on the scalp to clump together and flake off as dandruff.
Though irritating and embarrassing, most dandruff cases aren’t serious and can usually be curbed by an anti-dandruff shampoo.

Dr. Eddie’s natural dandruff shampoo is made with 95% natural ingredients. It combines FDA-approved Pyrithione Zinc for dandruff and seborrheic dermatitis, licorice root extract to soothe redness, and provitamin B5 to moisturize hair and skin. The formula is fragrance, dye, BPA, paraben, and alcohol free and complies with pediatric dermatologist recommendations for eczema by being a non-soap cleanser that is hypoallergenic and has a low pH. .

Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo & Body Wash is also a sulfate free dandruff shampoo. While sulfates are helpful for removing excess oil and dirt from hair, they are often too strong for use on sensitive skin as they can further irritate or inflame eczema, allergies, and seborrheic dermatitis.
The most common symptoms of dandruff are:
- Scaly or crusty scalp, mostly seen in children with “cradle cap”
- Itchy or irritated scalp
- Skin flakes on scalp or in hair, facial hair like beards and mustaches, or eyebrows
Dandruff doesn’t only affect adults. Children also get dandruff and exhibit symptoms such as:
- Dry, white flakes on the scalp or clothing
- Continuous itching of the scalp
- Oily flakes on the scalp or eyebrows
