Choosing the best dry scalp treatment for you is easy. In fact, there are just 4 things to look out for …

1. Tackle dandruff – yes, really!
Okay, so your first thought is probably that you need to moisturize (see point 2) but really, you need to start with the underly in cause. In many cases, that’s dandruff.

Dandruff damages the scalp. It causes changes in your outer skin cell (and we’re not talking healthy ones!), disrupting the skin’s natural moisture defenses and allowing moisture to escape.

So it follows that if you treat dandruff, you’ll be treating the root cause of the problem so your body can focus on healing the damage.

Without it, your dry scalp problem may keep coming back.

2. Moisturize your scalp
Now for the moisturizer. If you’re tackling the root cause with an anti-dandruff shampoo you can get immediate relief from the dryness by choosing one with added moisturizers.

It means you can give your scalp the extra moisture it needs while your anti-dandruff shampoo gets to work tackling the root cause.

3. Clean all the dirt, dust and grime
It’s still a shampoo, so it needs to do what all good shampoos do – keep your hair and scalp clean.

4. Smooth and condition your hair
For great-looking hair, it’s important to condition too, so look out for a dry scalp shampoo that delivers.

Our Dry Scalp Care 2-in-1 does. The added conditioners help to smooth every strand to keep your hair soft and healthy-looking.

And if you prefer a separate conditioner, there’s always our Dry Scalp Care Conditioner that works hand in hand with the shampoo to lock in its dandruff-fighting action so you continue to tackle the root cause.

Head & Shoulders does all that– our anti-dandruff shampoos have been proven to work against dandruff and, with our Dry Scalp Care ranges, you get extra moisture to provide relief from dryness.
