Is Head & Shoulders harsh on hair?

Our anti-dandruff shampoos have been designed to be gentle enough for everyday use and are even gentler than some baby shampoos

Some people think only harsh products can combat dandruff, but nothing is further from the truth.

Our scientists have spent 50 years perfecting Head & Shoulders for everyday use.

A great dandruff shampoo should do more than fight flakes. Because healthy locks are important, Head & Shoulders infuses every shampoo with essential beauty shampoo elements, like rich moisturisers and fresh fragrances.

Our products are always tough on dandruff, but gentle on hair.

In fact, we went head-to-head with baby shampoo to see which one was more gentle on hair – and Head & Shoulders was the clear winner
