I'm going to give you a no-frills, straight up view into how I take care of my hair and scalp.
I know it's hard for readers and consumers to digest sponsored content. I know, I know. But like I've said before, I don't post something I don't actually use. And I have been using Head & Shoulders for YEARS.
Head & Shoulders is really, truly awesome for all heads. I'm ecstatic to be partnering up with a brand I have been using for over a decade.
You probably know me for my crazy dyed hair. Before I recently went brown (and now, black), I had been bleaching my hair for about 12 years. The first few years were ROUGH, because I was naively going to inexperienced people who gave me chemical burns on my scalp and made my already very sensitive scalp very dry and flaky.
When you wear as much black as I do, this is bad news. Dandruff flakes on your shoulders are pretty unsightly and embarrassing. I turned to dandruff shampoos for help. I tried many other competitors but Head & Shoulders Instant Relief Shampoo was the best one to provide some serious help.
The instant relief formula with a cooling effect helps itchy scalps on contact, and it washes away flakes with ease while preventing future ones from forming.
After continual use, I didn't need the power of instant relief anymore and moved onto the more fun scents (Head & Shoulders Green Apple Shampoo is my favorite and the one I still use today).
Some may argue that Head & Shoulders Instant Relief Shampoo is bad for colored hair because it may not retain color as well as other color-specific shampoos. I did a lot of research on it years ago (I get really anal about researching best routes haha) and decided to stick with Head & Shoulders--the reason being that with colored hair, you're not supposed to wash it that often anyway. And also, when you don't wash your hair often, your scalp gets a bit flaky no matter what, even if you have a healthy scalp. Head & Shoulders targets these issues for all levels of scalp health. The benefits greatly outweigh anything else.
Now, I have a healthy scalp (no more chemical burns after going exclusively to my beloved Miju's salon, thank god), but I still have the hairwashing habits I had when I was bleached/pastel-colored (2-4 times a month) except I have black hair, which means even one flake will instantly show. I tested out not using Head & Shoulders Instant Relief Shampoo for a wash and that was a mistake: I needed to wash my hair much sooner the next round. I won't stray again.
