I'll admit it - when it comes to my hair I'm a pretty fussy guy. I like to try different shampoo's and so far find that of the off the shelf brands L'Oreal and Pantene are my two favourites.
This particular L'Oreal product is aimed at the snow shouldered dandruff market obviously - though this is a more tricky shampoo to get right I find as anti-dandruff shampoos tend to be a lot harsher and I have a sensitive scalp. The important competition here though is Head and Shoulders obviously and I must say I think this wins hands down.
I have always found head and shoulders to be far too strong for me and it has even burned my head in the past (much to my hair dressers distress). This product has left me with no worse a problem than dry hair though and with a good combination conditioner this would be easily solved I believe.
After a somewhat lack lustre hair washing routine recently due to much travelling I found that this product quickly took care of the first bout of dandruff I had for many years and am very pleased with it's effectiveness in this area. If you have some dandruff to clear up and a sensitive scalp then I would recommend this over the competition. If you don't have dandruff though I would find something more suitable that leaves hair less damaged.
Make sure you combine this with the appropriate conditioner for healthier hair!!
I remember back in the 80s (yes I'm old) hairdressers would refuse to perm people who use Head and Shoulders because it literally strips the outer folically bit off your hair, so the solution wouldn't take - thats why the hair loses its shine if you use it for too long M xx

not ever suffered but have used head and shoulders to remove permanent hair colour - it works and I also know people who have used it to wash out perms - back in day - that is!!
