It is this shampoo which always saves me when I have to fight a dry scalp. Please read further to find out my experience with this particular product.

My Experience with Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care with Almond Oil 2-In-1 Shampoo:

Where should I start? I have been using this brand for almost a decade now. My scalp has always been dry and it used to get really itchy during winters. Since I come from a hill station, you guys can imagine how cold and dry it gets during winters. I remember how I requested my mother to buy me an H&S shampoo and she said no as she was afraid that chemicals might damage my hair, but seeing my unfathomable desire for H&S melted her heart and she gave in to my demand and got me one! I had beautiful hair that time, supersoft, silky and dense. I still have the silky and soft texture, but my hair has definitely become much thinner.


My experience with H&S has been amazing since it has always given me a dandruff free scalp and now the presence of Almond oil makes it even better. Almond oil nourishes the scalp and helps control hair fall. The best part was that after the first wash itself, I felt the difference. It clears almost 90% of dandruff during the first wash. The itchiness has definitely reduced a lot. The shampoo lathers really well and leaves my hair soft and fluffy. Since this particular product is a combination of shampoo and conditioner, I need not use conditioner which also saves my time as it serves both the purposes, cleaning and conditioning. You may have to use a conditioner along with it only if you have too frizzy and dry hair.


It gives best results when I leave it on my hair for at least 3 minutes. I still remember how I instantly fell in love with the fragrance when I used H&S for the first time. Ohh the fragrance! H&S shampoo has the fragrance that no anti-dandruff shampoo can ever match. I am certainly not exaggerating in saying that this fragrance can fetch you compliments from someone sitting next to you. Imagine an anti-dandruff shampoo doing that!


The only thing that I discovered after using it for so long is that one must discontinue using it for a couple of months and then restart using it. I guess it’s the same with every product. If we use it for a long time continuously, we may feel that after a point it has stopped working for us.
Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this product. I believe that it is the best anti-dandruff shampoo available in the market currently and it is quite affordable too.

Pros of Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care with Almond Oil 2-In-1 Shampoo:

• Lathers really well.
• Helps reduce dandruff from the very first wash.
• Awesome fragrance.
• Serves as both shampoo and conditioner.

Cons of Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care with Almond Oil 2-In-1 Shampoo:

• Although it’s a combination of shampoo and conditioner, people with dry and frizzy hair may need to use a conditioner separately.
• It will not work for severe derma problems like seborrheic eczema.

IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
