Choosing The Right Dry Scalp Treatment


When you’re buying a moisturizer, you probably have a favorite – you know what works and you use it time and time again. It’s no different with a dry scalp treatment – here’s how to choose a tried and trusted shampoo for dry scalp.

Stop dry scalp from coming back Yes, you can give your scalp a “quick fix” of moisture, but the best dry scalp treatment goes right to the heart of the problem. In a lot of cases, that’s dandruff.

Why dandruff is a sign of dry scalp

So choose an anti-dandruff shampoo – that way you’ll be tackling a cause of the problem, allowing your scalp time to heal without further damage. Every shampoo in the Heads & Shoulders collection is specially formulated to deal with both the symptoms and causes of dandruff, ensuring your hair is 100% dandruff free.

Give your scalp some moisture

As well as treating your dry scalp in the long-term, you want to get immediate relief too – so choose a shampoo that delivers moisture straight to where it’s needed.

We’ve developed a range of shampoos to do just that. One of our best hydration boosters is our Smooth & Silky shampoo, which treats itchy, dry scalp and contains three moisturizers to deliver a deep hydration you can feel.

Repeat, repeat, repeat

Unfortunately, you can’t “cure” dandruff – it’s what’s known as a recurring condition – so it will come back without regular treatment.

So to keep your scalp hydrated, you need to use a shampoo for dry scalp, like Head & Shoulders, every time you wash your hair.

The pH-balanced formula is gentle on hair, even if it’s been colored or chemically treated, so you can use the shampoo as a dry scalp treatment every time you wash.
