In brief: No best

Many good choices, but key not to get in kids eyes as they can irritate.
Ingredients to look for: salicylic acid, zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide and ketoconazole. Best to rotate between these different ingredients for better results. For example when finish a bottle of one ingredient, next bottle can contain one of other ingredients listed above. Dandruff chronic problem so no cure.
