Head and Shoulders

I don't have problems with dandruff but I have been thinking a lot about having a healthy scalp in order to have healthy hair. Some of Head and Shoulders products are getting better about different hair needs. Has anyone tried any of their products?

    I tried H&S many moons ago and I found it quite drying on the hair. I like Paul Mitchell tea tree line. It is not a cg friendly product but I got to use up what I have as it wasn't cheap. After that, I'm going to start putting pure tea tree oil in my cg friendly conditioners.

    My dad is a faithful use of Head and Shoulders. I haven't used it personally. When my scalp is itchy and flaky, I use Giovanni Triple Threat Tea Tree Shampoo.

    if you don't have dandruff, chronic itchiness, or any kind of skin rash on your scalp, you probably already have a healthy scalp.

    head and shoulders is full of chemicals formulated to keep skin disorders of the scalp at bay. it may be a step below getting a prescription shampoo for scalp problems.

    a healthier and more natural way to fight germs, bacteria, fungus and to restore the scalp to a healthy pH, is to do a cider vinegar rinse. since it sounds like you already have a healthy scalp, once or twice a month would probably be sufficient for you. you could also infuse herbs like rosemary, sage, and nettles into your vinegar rinse. these herbs naturally fight bacteria and condition the scalp and hair. i'd much rather do a natural rinse like this once or twice a month.

    I've used the one for dry and damaged hair - I did not like it! It left my hair quite dry and brittle.

    If you have a healthy scalp, don't use H&S. No matter how gentle the ads say it is, it is drying and harsh to the hair. Stick with natural methods to maintain a healthy scalp.
