My Review

I always expect for a dandruff shampoo to smell like straight chemicals. I also expect for it to leave my hair dry, but I was shocked to find out that wasn't the case with the Head & Shoulders Clinical Solutions products. I really liked the smell of both the shampoo and leave-on treatment, especially the latter.

I made a point of lathering up twice on each of the 4 sections of my hair because I wanted to see if the shampoo would dry my hair out. Instead, my results were the exact opposite. My curls felt super soft! I even told my sister to feel my hair, and she was also amazed at how soft it was after using the Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Clinical Solutions Itch Relief Dandruff Shampoo.

The fact that the shampoo left my hair feeling soft and moisturized challenges everything I know about dandruff shampoo. If you have scalp issues like me and always worried about your hair drying out due to frequent shampooing, try this shampoo! The suggestion on the product's bottle is to use it two times a week, and that fits into my natural hair regimen!

1BlessedNatural: After washing my hair with the Head & Shoulders Clinical Solutions Dandruff Shampoo. My scalp was flake-free. I hope you can get an idea from the pic of how soft my hair was...

The morning after I used the shampoo, I applied the Head & Shoulders Leave-On Dandruff Treatment. It was a different experience for me because I stopped applying hair products (other than shampoo) directly to my scalp. Because the bottle has a direct spray nozzle, I was able to quickly spray in between my hair parts. The bottle says you can use the product 1-4 times a day, but I've only been using it once a day.

In all, my scalp is still flake free!  The Head & Shoulders Clinical Solutions Dandruff Shampoo has to be the best dandruff shampoo! The Leave-On Dandruff Treatment is a nice treat because it's the only store-bought hair product I've found to be able to put directly on my scalp to be flake-free. Plus, the claim is true. It works up to 24- hours until I apply it again. My hair has a really clean and fresh smell to it. I love it!

Grade: A+
