In the past the product samples were just that, small size samples. For most products I was okay with that but for hair care that posed an issue for me. My hair is long, thick and wavy. At the moment it reaches to the middle of my back. It was only possible for me to try products on the ends of my hair or just a bit on my scalp because there wasn’t enough!
Imagine my surprise and thrill when I received my Head and Shoulders sample, and it was full size! Seriously, that is awesome! I could now really try it over the course of several shampoos and examine long term if I liked it.
Now I have to admit to being biased- we are a Head & Shoulders loving household. At the time of this test we had 3 varieties of Head & Shoulders in our shower.
I do have other shampoos for myself that I switch out, but for my husband it the only one that he uses. He has naturally thick and curly hair with an oily scalp that can get itchy. I alternate my usage because while my hair is dry on the ends it can get oily and dandruff at the scalp especially in the winter.
NOW ON TO THE TEST!
I chose the Instant Oil Control Shampoo as my selection. These are the product claims:
Head & Shoulders has a fast-acting product for every hair type. Instant Oil Control is formulated with mango and citrus essence and controls hair and scalp oils for a clean you can feel.
Instant Oil Control Shampoo removes buildup for a clean you can feel instantly. Formulated with mango and citrus essence, it’s gentle and balanced for everyday use, even on colour or chemically treated hair. It fights dry scalp, calms itchy scalp**, relieves irritation**, reduces redness**, has a great scent, controls flaky scalp** and leaves hair looking beautiful.
*Visible flakes; with regular use
**Associated with dandruff
I have tried this formula a total of 3 times now as I wash my hair 1-2 times per week.
My usual preferred variety of Head & Shoulders is Dry Scalp Care which is very moisturizing and smells like Almonds.(yummm)
I found that for me the Instant Oil Control Shampoo did indeed make my hair and scalp less oily between washing. I did not smell any mango in it at and while it has a lime on the bottle it has lemon extract in the product. That was a bit of a disappointment to me as I love the smell of lime. Overall I found it to be effective for my scalp but a little bit drying for the rest of my hair. I had to use a lot of conditioner afterwards on the body of my hair to help untangle it. As a side note: Head & Shoulders in general lathers amazingly well and this one was no exception. I know technically they say you don’t NEED lather to be clean, but I really like lots of lather in my shampoo.
He has short hair and washes it every 2 days.
When I asked him if he like this new Head & Shoulders he said “Oh Yeah!” He said that since he has an Italian heritage he feels like he just “exudes oil!” and that “It tingles on my scalp when I am using it.” He explained that he really enjoyed the sensation because he said that he “felt like it was really working then” and he confirmed that it did reduce the oil on his scalp and in his hair. He said it felt very clean and fresh and he likes it better than the other Head & Shoulders varieties that he had been previously using.
YES. If you have an oily scalp/hair this product is for you. I also think it would be good for the summer months for anyone when we are all sweating more and want a refreshing shampoo.
