Mild and natural shampoos containing tea tree oil help get rid of scalp pimples. A medicated antibacterial shampoo that is allergy resistant is another option for getting rid of scalp pimples. Antidandruff shampoos, scalp-zit shampoos and shampoos containing salicylic acid also help get rid of scalp pimples.

While many shampoos are available to help get rid of scalp zits, users should consult a dermatologist to determine the best course of action. Avoiding the use of a conditioner also helps in getting rid of scalp pimples. Further, people with scalp zits should avoid products containing benzoyl peroxide, as this ingredient may lead to hair loss.
