      reliable shampoo that works but costs quite a bit

      Sorry about the pun ! I use Head and Shoulders not because it is an anti-dandruff shampoo, but because it is a bit like Fairy washing up liquid, I know I only need a small amount to get the grease off, and I can rely on it.
      I use the normal Head and Shoulders and the citrus one and also another new Head and Shoulders one for damaged hair that I got from Tesco for 1.25 down from 2.99 for 250 ml. The citrus and the standard one were 2.99 when I bought them for 250 ml.

      I wash my hair about every other day and shampoo it twice normally and condition it. At least with Head and Shoulders I can leave it a day and it looks okay. This citrus smell is nice and I prefer it to the bland smell of the standard shampoo. But I wash that off with the conditioner anyway.

      I first used Head and Shoulders when I was about 18 when my hair and skin went a bit mad, and my skin was all flaky ( sorry if you are eating ! ). But I was given coal tar shampoo by the doctor and all kinds of strange things, eventually I just bought this and my hair seemed to look good.

      The amount of lather you get with this depends on a few factors of course, but generally I would say it is generous. I get more lather up here with soft water than in the hard water areas of the south east. Also the first wash I do normally does not generate much of a lather, that is why I do two washes as the second one is where the useful cleaning gets done.

      This shampoo stops flakiness and itchy scalp as well as dandruff, I do not get these , maybe as I always use the shampoo, as I did have problems when I was younger.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I have half a pack left that I've no intention of using unless desperate. Avoid.

      I've been a long-time user of the Head and Shoulders range, without ever really giving much thought as to which particular variant I was purchasing. I've tried the classic, the 'for men' the menthol etc, and never really found one that would stand out against the others for any particular reason. So it was that one time when this citrus fresh brand was the first thing that caught my eye, I placed it in the basket without much consideration.

      This was a mistake.

      Next shower, things are proceeding as usual, the smell from the opened packaging is fairly non-descript and the shampoo itself looks roughly the same as the other variants, maybe a slight yellow tinge as opposed to the usual mild blue. It smells of a mild citrus tone and the lathering process in the hair is the same as usual. Until I feel that my eyes are twitching a little, from some kind of irritation. Shortly after, I've found that I'm pretty much having to keep my left eye clamped shut while peering slightly through the right one to find the shower gel and see what I'm doing. It's only when the shower's off and I can wipe my eyes with a towel that the comfort returns. At first I figure maybe I just got something in my eye and it's just a coincidence. But then this happens again the next shower. And the next.

      I'm not sure if it's the vapours, the citrus or what exactly, but all I know is that it only happened with this kind of shampoo and when I went back to the others, I've never had the same issue.

      I guess maybe it could be used as a wake-up call, but generally just... not good.

        H&S Citrus Fresh

        ==Head & Shoulders Citrus Fresh Conditioner for Greasy Hair==

        As my quest to find a Shampoo & Conditioner that solves my Greasy Hair problem might have come to an end, I decided to search through the Bathroom Shelves & review all of the products that I have spent money on in the past few months. Products that have claimed to resolve Greasy Hair in a matter of washes, products that are actually quite expensive, products that I wish I didn't spend my hard earned cash on, considering that they're now going into the Car Boot stuff to be sold on! But anyway I read some reviews on this before going out to purchase it & most of the people who reviewed it were saying how good it was at tackling Greasy Hair & how it left a nice smell on the hair afterwards, etc. Except all I can say is that I didn't get any of these benefits from this product whatsoever!

        Head & Shoulders is a trusted brand of Shampoo & Conditioner that can be bought in Supermarkets, Drug Stores, Pharmacists, even the local corner shop! They have many different types of Shampoo & Conditioner, including Colour Care, Damage Rescue, Ocean Spa (which is lovely!), Sensitive, Volume Boost & of course Classic Clean & Citrus Fresh. H&S have been around since 1961 & started out in the UK as the only anti - dandruff shampoo on the market. Since then H&S have expanded to other countries such as Spain, Australia, Brazil, America, Germany & Holland. As H&S is used in many countries throughout the world they have become a trusted Hair Care brand that can be found almost anywhere.

        Head & Shoulders Shampoo comes in 250ml & the Conditioner is 200ml. Most Supermarkets have H&S Citrus Fresh from £2.79 - £2.99 for 250ml / 200ml & it's around £5 for 500ml. Wilkinson have H&S for £2.69, that's for 250ml / 200ml. I bought my 200ml bottle of Citrus Fresh Conditioner when Wilko were clearing it out a few months back, then it was only £1 for the 200ml size & £2 for 400ml. I thought this was a bargain price & that it couldn't hurt to try it out as I was saving £1.69 off the original price. It is perhaps a good thing that I didn't pay RRP for this as I only used it for approx 4 uses anyway! The lid of the bottle is facing downwards & is coloured blue whilst the bottle is white & is hunched the one side. It's the opposite on the Shampoo which stands a little higher than this bottle but they both co-ordinate eachother nicely enough. The label is yellow & has a cut lemon in the picture. We are told that this is anti-dandruff conditioner & that it's for Greasy Hair. It apparently has a new fragrance & is supposed to leave out hair light & fresh.

        The smell of this product is one thing, the performance, however, is another. This product has a nice smell & it's not powerful, just a nice clean, pleasant scent. Overall it smells very much like Classic Clean H&S, with a slight mix of Lemon Juice. The scent does linger on the hair for an hour or two after, but it dosen't last long at all. The bottle is easy to grip in the Shower & the lid opens nicely enough. The consistency of this Conditioner is thick, & it resembles Hair Masque. The Conditioner is easy to apply to hair & hair is easy to comb through with a wide tooth comb when wet & when the Conditioner is rinsed out of your hair, (it only takes a minute or so before the water runs clear) then you can feel that hair feels soft when wet & completly clear from Conditioner. After hair has been towel dried, my hair feels nice & clean, refreshed, & tangle free. When we've finished off with the Hairdryer, my hair feels nice & soft, plus that Citrus Scent is there!

        However, the fact that H&S claim that this Conditioner is suitable for Greasy Hair, is what really lets it down. Approx 24 Hours after washing, my hair is already starting to look limp & flat, almost untouchable. This normally means that I have to follow with the Dry Shampoo, perhaps that night & the following morning.

        ==Summary==

        This Conditioner is not worth using if you have Greasy Hair, but if you have normaly hair, then it's fine. It smells nice & everything, & is worth a try for hair that's not Greasy, but for what's it's intended to do, it dosen't work. If you have Greasy Hair cheap Shampoos & Conditioners such as Apple or Coconut that you can find in Wilkinson or TESCO for 72p / 75p & 88p are worth a try as they do work for Greasy Hair, so plump for these instead of expensive ones that cost an arm & a leg!

        Disadvantages

        Yet another good Head and Shoulders shampoo

        Head and Shoulders is a brand I have used and trusted for years. They sell high quality shampoos and conditioners for hairs of all different quality and types and the latest product of theirs I have been using is this Citrus Fresh Shampoo.

        I've always had very thing hair since I was a young girl and while it had thickened up a bit, it only takes a day and my hair immediately begins to look greasy and lifeless. I think perhaps this is because of my hair type and as such I do like to buy high quality brands too keep my hair light and healthy looking. This shampoo, I have found, is particularly good for greasy hair and having used it for a few weeks it definitely slows down the 'greasing' process as it were and keeps it looking cleaner and shinier for longer.

        Although I know this often exacerbates the problem I am prone to washing my hair once a day mostly because I happen to be showering anyway, but also because of my self consciousness at the greasy appearance. This shampoo lathers up really well and I find that applying is super easy. Sometimes, particularly with some cheaper brands, the shampoo is a little too liquidy and this means I often waste a lot of it as I end up having to rinse it out of my hand before applying because it would simply be too much. However, this is not a problem I have had when using this shampoo. The trouble with this however is often the more creamy solutions leave my hair looking even greasier as they add another layer to it, but with this particular variety of Head and Shoulders I have found this doesn't seem to happen.

        The scent is the perfect balance between strong enough to fragrance the hair, but not strong enough to become overpowering. I don't often hairdry my hair and yet when using this I did feel like it gave my hair more body, and it also made it a bit easier to brush which is a godsend for my hair as its often so tangled particularly because of my hair type.

        Another positive of this product is that like all Head and Shoulders shampoos it has anti-dandruff qualities and while I don't necessarily suffer from dry scalp often it doesn't hurt to condition the head as well as the hair! Also, and perhaps this was a bizarre tip at the hand of my doctor, I have been advised to simply grab a bottle of anti-dandruff shampoo to help clear up a mild eczema complaint I get on my chest and this always does the job (as does their Sleek and Smooth variety which is another product I frequently use). Its always good to get an extra use for your money's worth!

        However, in spite of its success at making my hair a little less greasy, it hasn't prevented me from having to wash my hair once a day. Now perhaps this is as a result of the cold weather which often leaves my hair quite lifeless and greasy looking, but I still thought this worthy of note.

        Overall I think this is a good product that is effective at cleaning and reducing greasiness to your hair. It cost me £2.50 in my new local Morrison's store and I suspect it would cost about the same in other supermarkets. I think this is a reasonable price for an item I get daily use out of and that I have found to be of quite a high quality. It does the job, leaves my hair feel soft and healthy, and reduces the greasiness to a greater extent than some other products. I would recommend.

          Head and shoulders citrus fresh

          Head and shoulders works really well on my hair and this citrus fresh variety is a really nice pick me up for my hair in the morning.

          I sometimes get quite a dry scalp and a bit of flakes and so when this happens I use head and shoulders for a week or two to get rid of the dandruff. When I went in to buy most most recent bottle I was just browsing and saw this citrus fresh variety. On the bottle it says that, "If you have dandruff and oily hair, would you treat one and ignore the other? No way. Head & Shoulders Citrus Fresh Shampoo does both, thoroughly cleansing scalp and hair with a bright, breezy scent. The result? Dandruff free and care free."

          I have quite greasy hair if I don't wash it frequently so I thought this would be perfect for my hair and at the same time it could really sort out my flaky scalp too.

          The smell is lovely, quite zingy and fruity without being over the top and it does give you a nice fresh smell all day if you wash your hair in the morning. The shampoo is quite creamy and easy to use and I found it quite easy to comb through after I had a shower.

          I like the results I achieve with this shampoo. I can wash my hair every other day and in between it is not as greasy as it normally is and hence it looks better and I can style it better too. The shampoo works well on my dry scalp and I find I have no flakes after a couple of days use so a shampoo that works on two conditions is one I definitely recommend.

          A 500ml bottle costs £4.99 in Boots and is well worth a try in my opinion.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great product, just a shame about the company's testing ethics.

          I like to vary the products I use on my hair regularly, as I find I am prone to product built up if I don't. My other half often uses Head and Shoulders shampoo and when we last purchased it this is the 'flavour' that we bought - Citrus Fresh. Our bottle is 500ml, and currently costs £4.99 in most shops and supermarkets, but it's very rare not to find a multi-buy offer on Head and Shoulders in at least one shop (3 for £10, 2 for £7 are currently on it Tesco/Waitrose). A matching conditioner is also available at the same price.

          The shampoo comes in a white bottle with a yellow label which contains the product information and description. The bottle is shaped with one curved edge and one flat side, the conditioner bottle mirrors this so that the two can stand flat sides together. There is a blue flip top lid on the bottle, which has a lip making it very easy to open and close, even with wet hands.

          I always find that Head and Shoulders have a distinct 'shampoo' smell, no matter what other scent is added in. Citrus Fresh is no different, but it doesn't have a nice subtle citrus scent. It's not sharp or overpowering though, and quite subtle compared to many other citrus products I have smelt. The shampoo apparently contains containing extracts of grapefruit, lemon grass and green tea, although these three extracts and not listed in their simple form on the ingredients list if it does! This shampoo is also designed to help greasy hair, which is great for me as I find my hair gets greasy quite quickly due to being put up and down very often for work.

          The shampoo is designed to be an anti-dandruff shampoo, so it should help to tackle dandruff and well as preventing it in the future by relieving dryness, itchiness and the tight scalp associated with it. I have previously suffered from dandruff and found that head and shoulders helped hugely to clear it up and keep it away, after it had subsided I was able to alter the products I used on my hair again without the dandruff returning. Head and Shoulders does this as it contains. The active ingredient in Head and Shoulders which helps to fight dandruff is called Zinc pyrithione. This zinc compound had antibacterial and antifungal properties, and is also used to treat many skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema and ringworm to name a few.

          To use the shampoo you simply massage it gently into your scalp, and work through your hair. Rinse thoroughly and repeat if necessary. I don't tend to apply a repeat application after I have rinsed the shampoo as I find it works very well on the first application and eel it would start to dry my hair out if I started using it twice per wash. However, if you have very greasy hair, or a lot of dandruff then a second application may be what you need. The shampoo is meant to have a gentle pH-balanced formula which makes it suitable for use every day. I usually follow the shampoo up by using the matching conditioner.

          I find this is a good mainstream, and easily available shampoo to treat dandruff and help reduce the greasiness of hair. It's simple to use, smells nice and does it's job. It's neither cheap nor overaly expensive and is widely available. Head and shoulders is manufactured by Procter and Gamble, who have often come under criticism for testing on animals, this isn't something I know enough about to go into detail but is something that I am not comfortable with and does put me off purchasing from the company and loses a star for me.

            Does the job and smells nice!

            Forget the old head and shoulders with it's strange smell, this is the Citrus version!
            I've washed my hair every day since being a teenager and I tend to use an anti-dandruff shampoo about once a week in order to prevent dandruff. Using it in this way does seem to keep it at bay. I tend to have about four or five shampoos on the go in the bathroom and alternate between them on different days - my hair seems to get used to a shampoo quite quickly and if I use one for too long it starts looking greasy.
            This shampoo smells lovely and seems to do a very good job of keeping the dandruff away. It's not the most sophisticated looking bottle in my bathroom but this isn't a problem for me. It leaves my hair smelling fresh, clean and doesn't weigh it down.
            My boyfriend is quite happy using this shampoo too - he often dismisses the toiletries I buy as being too girly but he's happy enough with this.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great men's shampoo ( women can use it too)

            I have tried many different shampoos in the past few months as since I have been writing and reading more reviews it is nice to go out and try new things! I recently purchased this as I noticed a had a small amount of dandruff and my dad has always used head and shoulders for his hair. This product Is specifically on the market for men and women with dandruff and that's why it's so nice and refreshing for a product to be specific for us! I have tried so many girly shanpoo's but always wanted a more masculine one that tackles grease and dandruff.

            Price:

            I picked this up on boots and it was on offer at 2 for £6. I think this is rather expensive, the only reason I bought it was because it know how effective it is with dandruff and grease. Each Bottle is 500ml, so £3 each isn't too bad I suppose. I have always used much cheaper products, but it's something as important as this it can pay to use a better product.

            My experience:

            I was reall shocked at how the product smelt, it was lovely and really fresh! I like nice smelling products that are not perfume like or too girly. This is a citrus smell but somehow it is masculine and if a women smelt it on you they would like it (my girl friend likes it). You only need a very small amount and it lathers up nicely and quickly. It produces an extremely thick lather which you can feel get all over your scalp and head. I tend to massage it in for a while to make sure It is treating the dandruff. It rinses out well, I tend to wash and repeat so my hair is softer. I have noticed a considerably better scalp and less dandruff since using the product, my hair is never greasy and it has such a fresh scent. It's really nice to use in the mornings and wakes me up nicely! It has a nice bottle which is white with a nice image of an orange on it, the bottle is easy to use and when you are running low of shampoo you can leave it upside down and it will all go to the end.

            Overall:

            A great men's shampoo that worked for me. I would recommend this to any guy as it left my head flake free and soft. It has a great smell and it's for men! Really happy with this and will be using it again. 5 stars from me! Thanks for reading :) josh

            Great stuff

            The last few weeks we have been using Head and Shoulders Citrus Fresh Shampoo. My dear other half has a lot of scalp and skin problems and she has a chronic dandruff problem but she also suffers from greasy hair to boot. A friend of hers suggested Head and Shoulders and as it is a brand we have used many times before we decided to give this a try.

            My other half used it first and then I used it after her as she had left it lying on the rack in the shower. I was pleased with the smell of this shampoo as it is very fresh and natural and citric - which shouldn't really have been a surprise. I was also expecting a thick off white coloured cream shampoo when actually this stuff is a nice shade of bright green - not unlike the colour of our Fairy Liquid!

            The first time I used it I was quite impressed that it lathered very well and I didn't have to use a great deal. Like all shampoos, I used this all over my body and on my facial beard and I was pleased with the results on my all over body hairiness, not just the hair on my head. I have used it several times since and so has my other half.

            The shampoo rinses off very well and afterwards we are both left smelling like a couple of lemons - but with nicely clean and fresh hair. The smell lasts a long time after the hair has been dried and I find I am generally in a good hairy condition after I have been dried off. My other half is also impressed as she says that her dandruff has improved since she has started to use this and also her hair does look in slightly better condition (but only slightly, she still has a long way to go).

            Personally, it has done wonders for my beard (which is 47 inches long) and it no longer flies off in all directions but I am finding that it has become a lot more manageable. Many people have even complimented me on my beard as well as my hair at work lately, and I think that this is since I have been using this great head and Shoulders Citrus Fresh - so it must be doing some good.

            It's not expensive, at less than £2 a bottle and it lasts a long time because as I say, you don't actually need to use very much.

            Overall, I am very pleased with this great shampoo and highly recommend it.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Why wouldn't you buy this?

            Every man in my family has been known to have greasy hair and therefore I have been looking out for many years for a shampoo to help me combat this. I actually have fairly long hair for a man which probably doesn't help my situation and therefore I normally have to wash my hair every morning despite knowing that you're not meant to and that it takes the 'natural oils' out of your hair. Mix in the odd occasion of dandruff that I occasionally get and well we both know that I am going to need some sort of miracle shampoo to sort my hair out.

            Many years ago now my dad bought some head and shoulders shampoo and recommended it to me as it seemed to solve his greasy hair issue and it said it was an anti-dandruff shampoo. After using it I immediately noticed a difference in how my hair felt just after the first wash and since then I have never used anything but head and shoulders. Some say that using the same shampoo on your head repeatedly is bad for you but I have never really had an issue with this.


            ---USING THE SHAMPOO---
            It is fairly simple to use this shampoo - just apply a small amount onto wet hair and rub it in. Then after a good rubbing (and possibly agitation of the scalp if combatting dandruff), just rinse out the shampoo and you're done. Some head and shoulders products are even shampoo and conditioner combined to save you time and hassle. If your hair is particularly dirty you can repeat this procedure but I find that I rarely have to do this unless I have dust, grit or something actually in my hair. The shampoo itself is quite pale in colour but that's neither here nor there. In consistency I would say that it is quite runny which is good as it makes getting it out of the bottle easier and it always seems to lather up really well, even in hard waters where a kettle lasted less than a month before succumbing to death by lime scale. (South of France if you're interested).


            ---THE BOTTLE---
            The bottle that you will find you are squeezing this shampoo from is plain white with a slanted blue top that is slightly transparent. I find that this bottle is much better than other bottles of shampoo as it stands upright or upside down easily. The bottle itself is also fairly pliable to get the shampoo out easily and the blue top can be taken off easily to get every last drop of shampoo out of it. All in all a practical but also quite stylish bottle in my opinion - plain and simple but to the point.


            ---THE SCENT---
            The scent of this shampoo is nothing special but I do find that head and shoulders shampoo scent does seem to last longer on my hair than other shampoos and coincidentally leaves my hair smelling better for longer. This product in particular has a subtle citrus scent that is pleasant but doesn't leave your hair smelling like the washing up. It is fresh and suitable for both sexes, as with most head and shoulders products.


            ---OVERALL---
            To summarise I would say that this product does exactly what it says it will very well. It certainly has worked wonders for my family's hair and actually for everyone that I know who uses head and shoulders. Another great product from P+G that comes in many different forms and scents. In fact it is now even sold in the pound shop so there is no reason not to buy or at least try it!

            A great effective shampoo

            I personally find that i have very greasy hair and along with Tresemme is one of my favorite shampoos. I tend to find that if i don't wash my hair daily it really does show however this is one of the very few shampoos that i can use worry free.


            The shampoo comes in an average sized bottle and is a fairly good size and shape to balance on your rack in the shower or just place on the edge of a bath, when opened you can immediately smell the citrus scent of the shampoo and it it is quite a welcoming and pleasant aroma, not very strong like some shampoos.


            The actual texture of the shampoo is pretty thick and white in colour, similar texture to a watered down version of lime original source shower gel. One lathered up and rubbed into your hair you can feel it makes it feel initially much smoother than usual and smells great at this point. After a quick rinse and was out i find that it is obvious when in comparison to other shampoos, what it has done. After using this i can actually miss washing my hair a day and not worry about it. It also appears more smooth and sleek. I also have mild dandruff which i find an annoyance and although the head and shoulders shampoo does not eradicate the flaky scalp it does keep it at bay and prevent it from being excessively bad and obvious to others.


            In conclusion to this i really do think that this Head & Shoulders line does perform, especially much better than some of it's competitors. It does make you feel much better and gives better performance than some others and alongside Tresemme, this would be the first shampoo that i would recommend someone if they asked for my advice.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Would I recommend it? Yeah I would, its a great shampoo and it doesn't cost a fortune.

            Generally I have combination/oily skin and hair that is to say the least... Highly a pain in the bum. With my hair getting oily just the next day I wash, I've started to wash my hair everyday. Before I get many lectures, don't get me wrong, I know all the drawbacks of washing your hair every day and how it can be damaging almost, but I cannot stand greasy hair. Even on the second day when I've used dry shampoo and done my very best to cover up the oilies, it really does become visible and I get very self-concious.
            I first heard about this shampoo (& the conditioner) from a girl on youtube. She had the longest hair ever and it looked so beautifully shiny and smooth. Keep in mind that I do want to grow my hair out (since it's only shoulder length at the moment) I do want to keep it in the best condition as possible, but I have to do so, whilst washing it everyday because I can't stand greasy hair.

            Enough about the background, lets get into the review..

            *Details*
            The Shampoo and conditioner is available nationwide in many shops; boots, superdrug, supermarkets etc. Currently the 400g bottles retail for between £4-5 each. For me, I think that's a really good price considering shampoos and conditioners from other high-street brands such as John Frieda, Andrew Collinge, etc retailing at around the same price but for much less product.
            Growing up the whole family used to always use head & shoulder. It was the stable products in the bathroom and no-one really thought anything of it really. Since then, things have changed and I never really gave them a second glance in the stores. I just went straight to the other brands in thinking it would be better for my hair. It just goes to show that sometimes you need to go straight back to basics and you'll be good as new.


            *Pros*

            -Cleans my hair really well. After washing, it makes my hair feel squeaky clean but not TOO clean to the point where it feels almost dry and all the moisture's been sucked out of it which I find with most other 'greasy hair' targeted shampoos.
            -Smells very nice. As the name may suggest, it does have a hint of a citrus scent, although not overwhelming. I tried the itchy scalp shampoo of theirs not long ago and they smell exactly the same to me but.. at least it isn't a bad smell, right?
            -It lathers up quite nicely. Now, although I don't have very thick hair, sometimes I find that the shampoo can miss the inner layer of the hair and so I do tend to shampoo twice. I was told once from a hairdresser that it's best to wash the hair twice. Firstly to break down all the dirt and grease (gross I know..) and then the second time to completely wash it away so your not left with any residue. That's also one of the reasons why with partnered shampoos and conditioner, the shampoo bottle is slightly bigger.
            -oh, since this is an anti-dandruff shampoo after all, like all others, it contains 'Pyrithione zinc'. Not only is this the medicating active ingredient, but it had been said that it's great to promote hair growth.


            *Cons*

            -Although it does help with the greasiness a little, I'm afraid it wasn't enough for me and I'm still washing my hair everyday. However, since I been washing my hair everyday for the past month or so, one of these days I might train my hair so I can go back to washing my hair every two days. This on the other hand takes time, and I would have to go around 2-3weeks of having that horrid greasy second day hair..


            It hasn't miraculously stopped my hair from getting super greasy straight away, but I really DO like this shampoo a lot. I have tons of different shampoos in my cupboard, but this is the one that I've been reaching for the most lately.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good shampoo, especially for greasy hair.

            My hair tends to get very greasy and my hairdresser recommended I use a shampoo specially designed 'for greasy hair'. That's why I chose Head & Shoulders citrus fresh.

            I feel very uncomfortable when my hair is greasy and have to wash it every day for it to look good. This shampoo does exactly what it says on the bottle: it makes your oily looking hair look more natural again. I also think citrus fresh smells really good. Not too strong as some shampoos do, but strong enough so that it leaves your hair smelling nice and fresh, and lemony. It is also good for people who have problems with dandruff. It apparently really helps. If you get it in your eyes, it does sting quite a lot (more than some other shampoos I have tried) so I'm always careful not to let it get anywhere near them.

            I buy it from the supermarket and it costs me just under £2.50 for a 250ml bottle which I think is reasonable seeing as it usually lasts me around 6 weeks (about 45 washes). The bottle itself is quite a nice shape. Fairly simple and it fits in your hand nicely. I do however find the top a little hard to open but I guess that's so it doesn't spill when it falls over.

            If you have greasy hair or dandruff problems I would definitely recommend it, and even if you don't, it will always leave your hair clean and smelling great.

            A great wake up call!

            Head and Shoulders Citrus Fresh Shampoo is the best out of the Head and Shoulders range. Whether you are using this product because you suffer from dandruff or whether you just use this as your daily shampoo, it makes your hair soft and revitalised! This shampoo is suitable for both men and women and all hair types. It is great in morning to use as the scent of citrus fresh wakes you up. The shampoo has a creamy texture and is easy to lather into hair and easy to rinse out. Afterwards, your hair will feel soft, shiny and manageable. The price of this shampoo starts from around £2 and it can be bought in the likes of Superdrug, Boots or even the local supermarkets, the sizes are either 200ml or 400ml. The only downfall to this product is the very plain bottle, it is not very attractive and is a bit boring. But overall brilliant shampoo!

              Citrus Fresh Head and Shoulders

              When I was a young teenager I did start to suffer with a little dandruff and good old mum started to purchase Head and Shoulders which is probably one of the best known anti dandruff shampoos on the market and has been for a while. From the time I started using it until now I can really say that I never seem to have any trouble with dandruff whatsoever and so the brand really does live up to its claims. I have used the original and menthol varieties and most recently I have been using the type known as citrus fresh.

              This version of the classic shampoo is very similar in its dandruff fighting ability to the other two I have tried; the only real differences are that the colour of the product seems to be off white whereas the classic version is light blue. Also the label on the bottle reflects the scent of the shampoo with it featuring two sliced lemons sliding down some kind of green lime coloured waterfall. The lid for the bottle is at the top which I think makes it more difficult to extract the remaining product when the supply is getting low, I like it when the lid to access the liquid is at the bottom as then any dregs can run down and be squeezed out easily when it is time to use it.

              To use this you obviously squeeze out a small amount on to your hand and then gently massage it in to your hair and then rinse thoroughly, you can repeat this process but I tend to do it just the once, this product will last a fair while if you use it sparingly. Like I said previously this brand really does fight dandruff which is fantastic as I think this problem does look unsightly and can be very embarrassing for an individual who suffers and struggles with it. In addition to this characteristic you are also left with the fresh citrus smell in your hair which is very pleasant and I think this is suitable for male or female humans. Johnson's shampoo this isn't though and if you get any in your eye it will sting like crazy so be careful and if that does happen wash and rinse your eyes thoroughly.

              A 250ml bottle of this currently costs £2.44 on the Tesco website and it is such a good method for fighting dandruff, cleansing greasy and oily hair that I wholeheartedly recommend it.
