You've all seen the adverts, you may have even used it.

BIG MISTAKE!

Head and Shoulders does get rid of dandruff... and half your scalp! The chemicals in it take off alot of your scalp and really isn't doing you any good. Also, once you stop using it, the dandruff comes back (making the company richer!)

I know what you're asking... So, xeroxed, what do we dandruff-haters do?

Simple!

Before you wash your hair, rub some vinegar (yes, i know it smells like s**t but it's worth it... no pun intended
) into your hair/scalp and let it dry. Once it has dried, wash your hair how you would normally. Repeat for the next 3 to 5 days and voila! You are dandruff free!

I agree, whenever I use Head and Shoulders I can feel how rough it is on my scalp. I prefer to use Pantene's dandruff shampoo, it isn't as strong but works well enough and it doesn't feel rough on my scalp.

I am not about to rub vinegar on my scalp. I have a bad memory tied to the smell of vinegar and it makes me really sick.

Have any proof to back up those accusations? I use Head and Shoulders all the time, and I've been dandruff free for around a year. I also use the Dry Scalp conditioner, which helps alot with the dandruff too. It works really well, wouldnt stop using it.

Well everyone has different skin types. I personally have sensitive skin, therefore I have a sensitive scalp ( a major reason I get dandruff in the first place) so yeah the harsh chemicals in the more potent shampoos irritate my scalp. You probably have a tough scalp.

Hey if it works for you and doesn't irritate you, then go for it!

I've used Head and Shoulders almost every day since high school, and my hair has had no problems whatsoever, and my scalp has been just fine.

Key words: "every day"

Have you stopped using it? You'll soon see that after you stop using it, the dandruff will return.

I have a really sensitive scalp, even when I dye my hair my scalp stings like $h!t.


dreamlandmafia, I'll do a bit of research later to support my claims.

Vinegar
Okay, I found a better method of using vinegar for getting rid of dandruff:

Make a mixture of 2 teaspoons of vinegar and 6 teaspoons of water and apply it on the scalp before you go to bed. Keep it for the whole night with a towel around the head. Rinse your head water in the morning.

Every day for six years, and the only reason it's not now, is because I don't take as good care of my hair as I did when I was younger. I have never had a problem with head and shoulders, in any way, shape or form.

THe smell of vinegar actually goes away completely once the hair is dry. Try it.

I actually used it a couple of times to remove buildup. It works but it makes my hair too squeaky clean and flying all over the place.

Vinegar also neutralizes the alkali left by shampoos.

Old thread, but I was perusing and figured I'd add in a little trick.

If you hate vinegar there is something just as effective and natural. Epsom salts. Rub about a tablespoon into your scalp - as an exfoliant - and then shampoo as normal. No stink

I hate to take a shower too.

But it is amazing how good I feel when I finally do take the plunge.

Thanks for making me laugh.
