A few weeks back this shampoo was sent to me by Influenster to review. I’ve always wanted to try Head & Shoulders but never did. Well today I’m glad to say that I’ve finally tried this dandruff shampoo and I like it a lot! Read my review down below.
Head & Shoulders is a treatment shampoo used to stop dandruff. It has 1% pyrithione zinc to help treat dandruff at the scalp. In the past few years I’ve had problem with dandruff and it’s really embarrassing, especially since I wear a lot of black. I’ve tried other treatments for dandruff but they never worked for very long. The directions recommend using this at least twice a week to see results and to use every single time you wash your hair for ultimate dandruff control. I’ve been using this shampoo every time I wash my hair, which is also twice a week.
The shampoo is pretty thick and sticky. It lathers up nicely though. The amount I have in my hand is twice the amount I need for my hair length and thickness. In the shower I will lather it up, massage it into my scalp, squeeze the excess lather out and let the rest sit on my scalp for a few minutes. It tingles a bit but doesn’t hurt. After that I’ll rinse it out.
My hair is left a little dry but nothing horrible. Although this shampoo claims to be 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner, I would highly recommend following up with a proper conditioner. This shampoo is a little drying.
I’ve been using this for two weeks now and I can say my dandruff is starting to clear up! In the first week I didn’t see too much of a difference, but in the second week I’m starting to see the difference. My scalp isn’t dry anymore and the flakes are starting to clear up.
Do I recommend this shampoo? Definitely! This shampoo has finally helped clear up my flakes. The drying factor isn’t too bad as long as you follow up with conditioner.
