Every time you switch your dandruff shampoo for a beauty shampoo, you’re washing away the dandruff-fighting actives. Find out how to make sure your shampoo is most effective
When you think of treating dandruff, you probably think of the shower – but around almost all of the dandruff-fighting action of your shampoo happens out of the shower.
That’s because after the dandruff shampoo has washed away the flakes, microscopic dandruff-fighting actives are left behind on the scalp’s surface, to keep your skin protected against the factors that trigger dandruff.
Beware the beauty shampoo ‘chaser’
There’s a common myth that anti-dandruff shampoo is harsh on your hair. As a result, some people use two shampoos – first one to treat their dandruff, and then a second wash with a different beauty shampoo.
But there’s a problem with that method - the beauty shampoo will make the anti-dandruff shampoo less effective, because it washes away most of the dandruff-fighting actives and the protection they give.
Plus, it’s absolutely not the case that Head & Shoulders is harsh on your hair.
We infuse every shampoo with essential beauty shampoo elements, like rich moisturizers and nourishing ingredients , so you’re not only treating dandruff, you’re keeping your hair soft and silky.
For our most moisturizing wash, check out our Lively & Silky 2-in-1 or our Classic Clean Shampoo.
Make sure your conditioner’s working for you too
It’s the same with conditioners. That’s why we developed anti-dandruff conditioners that work with our anti-dandruff shampoos, keeping you protected long after you’re out the shower.
