Klorane Galangal Anti-Dandruff Range Review


Did you know that 15% of women in the UK are concerned with dandruff, while 25% of men are interested in looking after their scalp microbiome? If you can relate to these stats, then you’ll love Klorane’s long-awaited addition to their iconic hair care line: the Klorane Galangal Anti-Dandruff collection.

This fresh new range has been created to immediately purify and soothe your scalp using a blend of botanical-infused vegan formulas for dry hair and itchy scalps. Intrigued? Keep reading for my full Klorane Galangal review…

The Most Important Thing About The Klorane Galangal Collection Is…

New for 2022, Klorane has harnessed the full natural power of a medical plant called ‘galangal’, which removes dandruff 4x faster than zinc pyrithione (an anti-dandruff active found in most treatments), to eliminate up to 100% of dandruff in just five minutes. Using the natural powers of this revolutionary plant active, the Klorane Galangal range contains both a shampoo and treatment mask to immediately purify and soothe your scalp, rebalancing the microbiome for shiny and healthy hair.

The ultimate complementary routine, Klorane’s Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, offers a regular treatment that washes and eliminates dry and oily flakes to prevent the recurrence for up to seven days, while the Exfoliating Mask provides an intensive treatment that prevents the recurrence of dandruff for up to one month.

What Hair Type Is It For?

Dandruff falls into two clear categories: dry dandruff vs oily dandruff.

Dry dandruff is caused by damage to your hydrolipidic film, leading to a dry, flaky scalp with smaller flakes.

Oily dandruff is caused by the overproduction of sebum, which leads to an oily scalp and sticky, large chunks of dandruff.

Luckily for us, we don’t have to self-diagnose; the Klorane Galangal range
treats both types of dandruff as it’s packed with keratolytic, antibacterial and moisturising ingredients to target both forms. Plus, the collection is even suitable for pregnant women.

You Will Love This If…

Fed up with dandruff shampoos offering zero luxury and only a harsh medical scent? So am I! Thankfully, Klorane has granted our wishes with these natural botanical-infused formulas that blend luxurious creamy textures, scientific efficiency and an invigorating scent.

The Klorane Galangal Anti-Dandruff range is a great natural and effective alternative to zinc pyrithione dandruff treatments.


Hero Ingredients:

Formulated with 87% natural origin ingredients, the Klorane Galangal Anti-Dandruff Shampoo contains galangal, harvested through a 100% natural extraction process in accordance with GREEN MISSION (a carbon-reducing advisory). The galangal root works alongside lactic acid and gentle cleansing agents to eliminate dandruff from the very first use. In fact, 84% agreed they saw a reduction in flakes after four weeks of use.

The Galangal Exfoliating Mask for flaky scalps harnesses the same purifying, cleansing and antibacterial properties of the galangal root in a powder-mask treatment that helps eliminate persistent dandruff. Deemed the first-ever waterless anti-dandruff mask, this 2-in-1 treatment acts as a shampoo and mask treatment in one; it helps you achieve visible results from the first use.

What Does Each Item Feel Like?

The Anti-Dandruff Shampoo has a light and fresh gel texture that bursts into a rich lather but where it gets really interesting is with the Exfoliating Mask. Klorane’s groundbreaking waterless anti-dandruff mask starts as a soft powder before transforming into a hydrating creamy lather so you can easily work it into your scalp.


What Does The Range Smell Like?

The Klorane Galangal range has an invigorating and uplifting aroma with a sensual woody musk tone that lingers on the hair for an all-day refreshed feeling.


How Do You Use The Products?

The Klorane Galangal Hair Mask can be used twice a week for one month and gets to work in just five minutes. For best results, pour the powder into the palm of your hand and massage it into the scalp for two minutes before rinsing out with water – there’s no need to shampoo your hair after.

If you’re suffering from moderate dandruff, I’d recommend using shampoo between three and seven times a week. In cases of chronic dandruff, you can use the mask and shampoo together as a full routine. Want to add a conditioner? I’d recommend the gentle and soothing Peony Conditioner for a sensitive scalp.


What’s Special About The Design Of The Range?

The Klorane Galangal Shampoo is housed in a fully recyclable plastic bottle made from recycled plastic. The mask is even more eco-conscious; its reduced plastic design requires 70% less water to manufacture. I love the mask’s convenience – its compact size and waterless design are perfect for travel.



Both formulas in the Klorane Galangal collection are vegan, and the mask is biodegradable.
