In brief: Many together.
Tar shampoo is very effective, but you need to clean the scalp first with a mild shampoo, and then use neutratar or a generic afterwards.
Make sure you lather it and then let is stay on your scalp, perhaps 5m. I recommend the concommitant use of a zinc shampoo on your next washing. And alternate.

There are a variety of shampoo options.
Tar shampoo is an old favorite neutrogena is option but there are other tar shampoos to consider.
