I am always on the hunt for a great shampoo and conditioner that will treat my sensitive scalp. While I usually only have a few seborrheic dermatitis flare ups a year, a good scalp care line is key to calm the inflammation and irritation I usually experience. For the last two years, my scalp cure go-to has been Aveeno’s Nourish + Dandruff Control line. While I still like this particular product, I recently swapped it out for Head & Shoulders’ new moisture hair care line. My sister told me about the line first and had been raving about it non-stop for weeks, so when I had an opportunity to try it as well, I jumped at the chance!
Their new moisture care line consists of the following products:
Formulated specifically for “textured hair,” I excitedly tried Head & Shoulders’ 2-in-1, their co-wash, and the scalp soother. Admittedly, I’m always a little reticent to use 2-in-1s. They usually tend to cleanse my scalp really well and leave my strands über dry or are overly moisturizing at the expense of leaving my scalp still sullied with a week’s worth of product and debris. Ick! Who wants that? Not me! So, I have to tell you, I didn’t expect too much from this particular product. In fact, I knowingly had a moisturizing conditioner at the ready prior to taking a shower so that I could ensure that my strands received the moisture they needed. To my surprise, I never needed it! The 2-in-1 thoroughly cleansed my scalp, yet my hair felt extremely soft. I’m not sure how they did it exactly, but my hair was cleansed, moisturized, and conditioned all in ONE step. Talk about a hair care time-saver! In fact, my tresses felt so amazing, I even skipped my usual deep conditioning session! I’ve never had a product that allowed me to do that … Ever!
The only other thing I did was use the scalp soother. Unfortunately, the first time I used the product, I doused my scalp with the product (since I had been experiencing a really bad seborrheic dermatitis flare up for the last two weeks). After applying the scalp soother, my scalp felt like I had started a bonfire on my head! Once the excruciating, burning sensation ended, I still felt uncomfortable … like I had emptied a case of peppermint patties on my crown. I immediately texted my sister to ask if she had experienced the same thing. When she texted back and said that she hadn’t, I panicked!
I reached for the scalp soother bottle so that I could read the instructions. (Yes, I know I should have done this prior to using the product so liberally.) According to the instructions, I was only supposed to use 15 pumps. However, I had expelled closer to 25! I was in such a panic, I almost started to rewash my hair. Fortunately, I was able to tough it out, and my scalp returned to “normal.” The next time I used the scalp soother, I actually followed the instructions and COUNTED the “pumps.” This time, the product had a cooling, calming effect on my scalp that I enjoyed (instead of feared)! So, definitely don’t go overboard like I did the first time. Believe me, 15 pumps is MORE than enough, even if you have a scalp condition like I do.
The following week, temps where I live soared to the high 90s, and the heat index was almost 120! Due to the immense humidity, I had used much more product than I ordinarily do just to get my hair to behave. As a result, I decided to try Head & Shoulders’ co-wash mid-week to “refresh” my hair prior to my normal weekly wash. I really liked it. My hair felt amazingly hydrated after using it. The co-wash is my sister’s personal favorite! She enjoys using this throughout the week in-between washings as well.
As a result, I definitely plan to buy more of the 2-in-1, co-wash, and scalp soother prior to running out. And, as soon as I polish off the last of my Aveeno Nourish + Dandruff Control, I intend to replace it with the products I tried from this line permanently. They work that well!
