Hello Beautiful Ladies,
We often love to flaunt our beautiful hair, but we do have those “problems” that restrict us from doing so. Dandruff is one amongst them! I still remember during my teenage years, I had this nightmare and I tried a great number of things, from homemade to chemical treatments to get rid of dandruff, but somehow, it kept coming back! One of my friends suggested that H&S shampoos are good and on trying, even though it didn’t give me immediate results, I felt it comparatively reduced the problem within 3 months of regular use. Later, one of my hairstylists told me that H&S shampoos are very strong and she recommended on using some mild shampoo. From then, I discontinued using H&S shampoo. Around 2 months ago, I started having dandruff again and I had to get rid of it as soon as possible and then I found this aloe vera variant and picked up this one. So, here is my review:
A mild, gentle anti-dandruff shampoo which relieves your sensitive scalp, and leaves your hair soft and manageable. Gentle formula suitable for everyday use. Contains aloe vera extract. Leaves hair up to 100% flake-free.
How To Use:
Apply the product to wet hair, massage onto scalp. Rinse and Repeat if required.
I picked this one at the drugstore for 2.99 Euros for 300 ml.
My Experience with Head and Shoulders Sensitive Aloe Vera Anti-Dandruff Shampoo:
I have dry scalp and oily hair, and shampooing every other day is a must for me or else my hair gets very limp and thin. As this one is mild enough, it’s good for frequent use. Like most of the H&S shampoos, this one too comes in a creamy white texture and the fragrance is kind of a milky odor and is something that I do not like.
I have been using this for more than a month now, and it is mild and reduces itchiness on the scalp as it claims. Aloe vera present is an added benefit. There is visible reduction in dandruff within 2-3 times of use. I also noticed that the hair becomes a little soft without using a conditioner. It lathers less compared to the other variants and you have to make sure that you do not use a lot of product. Even though it doesn’t claim anything for hair fall, I noticed the strands in my comb were getting lesser and lesser.
But along with the goodness, there would be a flaw! Well, this product is not great if you have oiled your hair. It doesn’t remove the oil completely and you need a lot of product to get the oil removed and doing so, it weighs down your hair making hair look limp and thin!
I have wavy hair texture, I love it! 🙂 but using this product, made my hair ends straight and my hair looks weird the day I shampoo. As it has a milky odor, I have preserved this only for my dandruff days and I use another shampoo for the normal days. I use this instead of a shaving cream as it has aloe vera and I noticed that there is no itchiness after shaving without a cream, so this has a dual role of a shampoo and a shaving cream.
So summing up:

No, I would try another variant of H&S.
