Improve your scalp health

Dandruff is frustrating on its own, but can also be an indicator of scalp health that could lead to hair loss if not treated appropriately. The prescription shampoo we offer for dandruff treatment can improve symptoms in most cases within one month.

Common questions

  • What is dandruff?

    Dandruff is a scalp condition that causes dry pieces of skin to flake off of the scalp.

  • What are the causes of dandruff?

    Dandruff can be caused by multiple factors, usually by a common fungus called Malassezia (seborrheic dermatitis). But dandruff can also be caused by a reaction to a hair or skin product (contact dermatitis), a result of another skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis, or as a result of product buildup.

  • How does dandruff treatment through Nurx work?

    Simply answer a few questions about your symptoms or health history on the Nurx website or app, then share a few photos of your hair and scalp. There’s no appointment required and you can get started any time. One of our licensed medical providers will conduct a virtual assessment by reviewing your answers and photos. They’ll create your personalized treatment plan (if medically appropriate), then our pharmacy will send the medication directly to your door.

  • How much does dandruff treatment through Nurx cost?

    When you submit your request for treatment, you’ll pay an $80 consultation fee. Treatment options for dandruff range from $6-11/month. Shipping is always free.
