    Shampooing is the most common  form of hair treatment to remove dirt, grease and debris from the hair, scalp and other parts of  body without damaging the natural gloss of hair and to keep the hair fragrant, lustrous, soft and manageable. The shampoo is prepared by using two Antidandruff agents such as Sulphur and Benzoic acid. The other ingredients used are sodium lauryl sulphate as surfactant, urea as solubilizing agent, sodium EDTA as chelating agent, guar gum as foam stabilizer and thickening agent, tween 80, distilled water is used as vehicle. It was evaluated for various tests and the ranges were in acceptable limits. The pH range was 6.3 to 6.8, physical appearance was pale yellow, The percentage (%) of solid contents ranges from 22.3 to 26.7, viscosity was in the range of 1209 to 1729, surface tension was 31.16 to 34.19 and foam value 143 to 171. The anti-microbial activity was done by using staphylococcus aureus, The zone of inhibition by 1% solution using Sulphur : Benzoic acid in the ratio of 1: 1.25 have shown 3.1mm of inhibitory action.  The present research emphasizes about the preparation & evaluation of synthetic antidandruff cosmetic shampoo.
