I love it when my dear other half goes out to specifically look for a product FOR MEN. I was over the moon when she bought me this great Head and Shoulders anti dandruff shampoo FOR MEN from our local shops when she went out by herself in the car for the first time. It looks no different really to the usual Head and Shoulders Shampoo we get (which my dear other half also uses) but the front of this bottle clearly states it is designed for MEN.
She bough the large sized bottle (500ml) and paid £3.99 as there was an offer on. I have used Head and Shoulders shampoos lots of times before and I always think they do a great job at helping my scalp to get better and get the dandruff under control. I even suffer from dandruff in my beard and use medicated shampoos on my face.
I have used this great shampoo a fair few times now. One of the great things about it is the smell. I pull back the top, tip it out into the palm of my hand and straight away I can smell that fantastic strong medicated smell. I think it might be every so slightly stronger than the usual Head and Shoulders, but really there's not a lot in it. The shampoo is greenish and quite thick in consistency and lathers up really very well on my head. I find it is strong but gentle enough for me to be able to sue on my facial beard.
My hair looks and feels good after I have washed in this great shampoo. I would say that I have to use it a few times before the dandruff will completely clear up. If I stop using it, the dandruff does eventually creep back but this shampoo helps to keep it under control and I certainly don't need anything stronger to keep it at bay.
I love this shampoo and I am pleased that Head and Shoulders actually make something marketed specifically towards men -It makes a pleasant change.
After staying at my boyfriends house the other day, I had no choice but to settle for whatever products were in his shower, and this was one of them - Head and Shoulders Anti Dandruff Shampoo for Men. Obviously, this wasn't my first choice of shampoo, and being someone who is quite picky with haircare products, this was a big step for me! I was however fascinated at how this was designed specifically for men, therefore I wanted to give it a shot on me and see if it is suitable for women also!
The packaging is similar to most of the Head and Shoulders products, which is with use of a white and blue colour scheme, nothing too appealing but a well known brand, therefore I was expecting a high quality. To use, you simply need to pull up the cap and squeeze out a small amount before massaging into head for a minute or two, then rinsing out with warm water.
One of my biggest fears was that this shampoo would have a very strong scent to it, considering it was targeted at just men. My ultimate fear being that it would have a lingering aftershave type scent to it, meaning that everyone around me would sniff me out. However, surprisingly the scent wasn't actually that manly. It was however kind of minty, and the kind of smell you would find in a hospital is the only way I could explain it. Not an appealing scent to say the least, so I wasn't too happy with this, and neither is my boyfriend!
Once you have squirted out the shampoo, you will notice that it is a strange green and white colour, however I still applied it as described earlier, and when washing it out of my hair, it did feel squeaky clean and like it had done a good job. After blow drying my hair, it was very soft and silky, and this shampoo had worked wonders for it, despite being a "men's" shampoo.
Even though all Head and Shoulders shampoos are targeted at people who have dandruff, and although I can not vouch for its effectiveness on this part, I do however recommend it as just a basic shampoo. My boyfriend however does suffer from dandruff quite bad, and since he has been using this shampoo, it has also worked wonders for him. If you are interested in this and are not male, Head and Shoulders just do an original shampoo which you are probably better off purchasing!
If you are interested in purchasing this shampoo, it is available at most supermarkets, and drugstores such as Boots or Superdrug. It retails at £4.79 for a 500ml bottle, or £2.55 for a 250ml bottle. Although this does seem a little steep, the bottles do last for a long time, so it is probably worth buying the larger one if you are going to pick this up.
Overall, this is a good quality shampoo, and despite it being for men I was happy to use it, and I will use it again in the future. However, I will not rush out to buy it over my fruity scented shampoos. Best recommended for men who suffer from dandruff. Thanks for reading.
Recently, I've had a rogue attack of dandruff invading my head, clothes and pillows, much to my annoyance. Normally my hair gets greasy quite quickly although my scalp is usually fine, but for the last week I look like I've been hit by a dessicated coconut missile. It seems like my normal shampoo of choice, Tresemme, wasn't up to the job of curing this wretched condition, so I went for this at the Temple of the Cut-Price Acolytes: Home Bargains. I found it for about half the normal retail value, which was a good start.
It smells, well, a bit medicinal to be honest, which isn't that attractive but then neither is dandruff. It lathers up pretty quickly, and once rinsed out is fairly odourless. It also doesn't cling to the hair too much, which is good, as I have long hair that reaches half-way down my back. It does however pack a painful sting should you be careless enough to get it in your eyes, as I did this morning.
The ingredients is an endless list of unpronouncable, scary looking chemicals, the only recognisable one being 'aqua' - why do all soapy products list 'water' as 'aqua'? The rest of the label isn't written in Latin, so why this one? They're not fooling anyone. Hic scriptor fessus est.
So far, I'm very pleased with the results. Three washes in, and it seems to have stemmed the horde of flaky scalp, so that's good. I've also found the added bonus that I don't really need conditioner with this, as it leaves the hair smooth enough on its own; a real advantage in my case, as my hair usually becomes an horrendous Medusa-like web of tangles and knots without conditioner.
With a well respected name and attractice new packaging, Head and Shoulders for Men should be a great product. And it is!
Everthings right with it. A good price with large volume bottle that will last for well over a month means that its cunningly practical. A white and blue colour scheme means it appeals to its target audience, and the info on the back is spot on. The bottle is ergonomic in shape and easy to use with a non-fiddly cap, perfect for big babies like me who don't like to open their eyes so that pesky H2O doesn't creep in. What a lurker it is.
I digress. The shampoo itself is light blue in colour, great for anyone who cares about retaining they're masculinity. It smells fresh, like any standard shampoo or shower gel.
Lather it up and wack it in your hair. The end product is simply really clean hair, light, airey and smooth. Use for most normal hair types.
So, it does the job with minimum hassle and a great outcome, all at a good price. Lather up!
Some brands are so synonymous with quality goods that they are recognised around the globe as a mark of excellence. For me, Head and Shoulders Anti-dandruff Shampoo for Men is one such product. I've been using it without interruption for nine years now and to be quite frank, I've not even considered looking elsewhere.
*So much hair, so little time*
My hair has always grown incredibly quickly (I was one of those babies born with a mane of hair) and it's also very thick, thanks to some helpful genes that were probably passed on by my very thoughtful mother. As a result, I found myself prone to dandruff from a young age. This was probably due to various factors (nasty shampoo, never letting my hair dry out properly etc.) but it was something that concerned me greatly as a young teen and could often leave my scalp feeling somewhat itchy.
For these reasons, a good anti-dandruff shampoo that keeps my scalp clean and my confidence up is a must have for my bathroom or toiletries bag wherever I go.
*Availability and (costly) cost*
Head & Shoulders for men is widely available from the usual outlets (supermarkets, Boots and Superdrug and online retailers) and if it didn't come in a generous 400 ml bottle I'd really begrudge the price. Please remember to decant some into a smaller bottle if you plan on travelling with shampoo in your hand luggage, as airport security will bin anything larger than 100 ml by volume.
Although the current offer listed with this review says that it can be had for £2.29 on Amazon, the typical high street price is closer to £3-4. There are occasional multi-buy offers on Head & Shoulders products in the larger chemists, but in my experience the male version is often and unfairly excluded from these.
The quantity provided lasts me for about two months, using a reasonable amount of shampoo and washing my hair once a day. While I have quite a bit of hair it's not massively long, so those of you with massive side-swept fringes might get through it a lot faster.
*Lightly fruity, lovely lather*
I find that this shampoo has a very pleasant smell that is far from overpowering. I suppose I could describe it best as 'lightly fruity', perhaps with a slight overtone of citrus fruit. It leaves my hair smelling fresh and clean and my girlfriend always approves.
It lathers particularly well, which I've always found psychologically important with personal care products as a good, rich lather has always made me think that I'm getting a thorough clean. In addition to this the copious amounts of bubbles mean that it's possible to give yourself some rather natty towering hairstyles in the bath! While I might be spending a little bit long bathing, I'm willing to bet I'm not the only guy out there guilty of this harmless form of bath time 'sculpture'...
*High tech stuff*
The list of ingredients on a bottle of Head & Shoulders is typically mind boggling, with complicated chemical names for everything. You know, the sort of label where water is called 'aqua'. The facts that are worth pointing out is that it uses zinc and some other chemicals to prevent dandruff and scalp discomfort and that it's PH neutral, which is always good for people with sensitive skin.
I've never suffered from any adverse reactions to this product, but would recommend looking at the ingredients before use to see whether there's anything included that you have a known allergy or sensitivity to.
