HOW SWITCHING YOUR SHAMPOO AFFECTS YOUR HAIR

Every time you switch your dandruff shampoo for a beauty shampoo, you’re washing away the dandruff-fighting actives. Find out how to make sure your shampoo is most effective.

When you think of treating dandruff, you probably think of the shower – but almost all of the dandruff-fighting action of your shampoo happens out of the shower.

That’s because after the dandruff shampoo has washed away the flakes, microscopic dandruff-fighting actives are left behind on the scalp’s surface to keep your skin protected against the factors that trigger dandruff.

Beware the beauty shampoo "chaser"
There’s a common myth that anti-dandruff shampoo is harsh on your hair. As a result, some people use two shampoos – first one to treat their dandruff, then a second wash with a different beauty shampoo.

But there’s a problem with that method: The beauty shampoo will make the anti-dandruff shampoo less effective because it washes away most of the dandruff-fighting actives and the protection they give.

Plus, it’s absolutely not the case that Head & Shoulders is harsh on your hair.
