This research data set contains data related to a shampoo that cures dandruff by using extracts from the leaves of Aloe Vera, Ocimum Sanctum, and Withania Somnifera herbs as an advancement of Ethiopian local herbs via formulation. The presented data gives information on the optimal formulation process for making an herbal antidandruff shampoo. Ethanol-extracted oil from Aloe Vera, Ocimum Sanctum, and Withania Somnifera leaves was used to create three different formulations: F1, F2, and F3. The formulated antidandruff shampoo was evaluated for its solid content, foamability, viscosity, dirt dispersion, pH, wetting time, and organoleptic properties. Additionally, the data set includes information on the antifungal activity of the shampoo against Malassezia furfur, as determined by disc diffusion and colony count tests. The active chemical components of the leaf-extracted oil were also measured using FTIR spectrum.
