Everybody has heard of head and shoulders. The company have re-invented this product through marketing several times over the years, but one thing remains unchanged:

>>> Head and Shoulders = Dandruff Shampoo!

No two ways about it. We've had jokes about Jaws leaving H&S on the beach, television shots of men with "half a bag of flour" in their hair, and more recently, partners departing because their spouse stops using Head and Shoulders shampoo.

I've only ever used two types of shampoo for any length of time.

1) Head and Shoulders.
2) Pantene Anti-Dandruff.

(The Pantene doesn't really count, because it is made by the same company as H&S - Procter & Gamble, and is basically Head and Shoulders with extra chemicals and a nicer smell :)

>>> Other products?

If there is one thing that really winds me up it is marketing spin for shampoos:
  • Makes your hair shine...
  • Makes your hair bounce...
  • Removes the frizz...
  • Prevents fly-away hair...
  • Doesn't make your eyes sting...

My answer to them?.... Liars!

I am unfortunate enough to have afro/wire-wool hair with a frizz that defeats anything except a pair of grade 2 clippers, and if I wanted my hair to shine, I would put glitter in it.

There are several products out there that meet some of their claims, but at the end of the day, shampoo washes your hair and scalp, and that is a fairly un-glamorous thing to have to put across.

>>> So why Head and Shoulders?

One of the reasons that I continue to use H&S is that it is one of the few "Honest" shampoo products available.
  • Washes your hair...
  • Prevents dandruff...
  • Stops dandruff coming back...

It even seems to manage to relax some of the wire-wool frizz out of my hair!

>>> Overall...

Hmmm... This opinion sounds a bit like "Victor Meldrew" ranting on... I know, this stuff is not going to be perfect for everyone. On the other hand:
  • They now do a range of products for most hair types.
  • They are a well established brand.
  • Even if there are nicer smelling brands out there, H&S is certainly not unpleasant.
  • It works on Dandruff.
  • It also seems to work in my horribly frizzy hair.

I will probably continue to use H&S as long as I have hair to wash.

I use different dandruff shampoos each time I come across one on offer. I only get dandruff when I'm stressed for some reason, well that must be all the time then...

You are fortunate enough to have hair! Even though I don't, I still like H&S because even without hair, your scalp can get dandruff and H&S works for me. Mike
