I’ve been asked so many times about my hair routine, and honestly, I really don’t have one. I try a lot of products and just stick to the ones that work best for me. When I was relaxed, I tried Head & Shoulders for my dandruff, and it worked wonders. Why did I stop using it? I thought my dandruff was completely gone, so I ventured out and started trying other products.
As you can see, my flakes are back, and I have a lot of them!!! I don’t know if it’s the winter weather or the fact that my scalp is just dry, but my dandruff has gotten out of control. When I started my natural hair journey, I didn’t see any dandruff. Maybe that is because I kept my scalp really hydrated. I’ve been natural for the last 2 years and my dandruff just started to come back recently. I’m not sure where it’s from, but it’s not cute!!! I have to cleanse my scalp at least once a week. Normally, I could go 2 weeks without washing my hair. I needed something new….something moisturizing….something that would get rid of these monster flakes. I was beyond excited to try the Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection. It boasts to provide moisture for scalp and hair immediately and over time, helping to eliminate dandruff and leave you 100% flake-free. Flake free? Ok…let’s give this a try! But first, let me show you my scalp. Isn’t it disgusting?
The main ingredients include vitamin E rich almond oil, coconut essence and dandruff-fighting ingredient zinc pyrithione (ZPT). I wasn’t looking for an overnight miracle, but I needed something. I did notice a decrease in flakes after my 1st use. The instructions suggest you wash twice a week, but I already have an issue with washing once a week. To me, a lot of shampoos strip your hair of the natural oils and moisture, that’s why I prefer to co-wash. I used the Head & Shoulders co-wash during the week and restyled my hair.
My favorite piece of the trio is the Scalp Soother. This stuff tingles and has a minty feel to it. It just feels like its working and kicking some dandruff ass! I normally spray it on my scalp about 3 times a week.
This is just my initial review since I’ve only used the products for 2 weeks. I’ll come back in about a month and give you guys an update.
