I've used it before on my son when he was a small baby, who is eleven years old now. I have a 3 week old son who suffers from dandruff and I remembered that selsun is the best and still works wonders
Highly recommended. It helped with my dandruff and I've recommended it to others that it has also helped. I only bought it because I review medical writing and this product is scientifically proven to work better than other dandruff products. I tested the theory and received results.
