My family uses Head and shoulders 2 in 1 Classic Clean dandruff shampoo plus conditioner. At first I wasn't sure about using a 2 in 1 formula because I am very picky about the hair products I use. My husband uses the product and swears by it. He has dry / flaky scalp and hair that kind of gets oily. Head and shoulders cleans and conditions his hair and scalp very nice. Surprisingly I even use it on my 5 month old daughter. She developed cradle-cap and we tried and at home remedy, but it seemed painful and left her scalp red and tender. When I asked the doctor what I should do, he recommended using head and shoulders when she bathed. After only a few uses her hair looked and smelled clean, besides the fact the cradle-cap was gone! Now I use it on her once a week or once every other week, and it has not come back as bad as it was. Of course I am careful not to get it in her eyes or mouth, but it works so quickly and rinses easily. I recommend head and shoulders for the whole family!

I have tried using this shampoo, Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Classic Clean, for about 1 month now.  I have found that it does help with my dandruff issue.  The complaint I have about this product however, is that it also makes my hair feel very oily after washing.  The conditioner part of the product is NOT very helpful, which makes me very confused about where the oily-ness is coming from.  My hair is still very hard to brush after washing.  I am not someone who has thick hair either, that might be normally hard to brush.  My hair is straight and not so thick.  This shampoo/conditioner makes my hair FEEL oily and LOOK oily as early as the day after washing (at night).   I also notice that it is not very blowdry-friendly either.  I have to let my hair air dry in order for it to not be frizzy, and this does NOT happen with other shampoos or conditioners.  I've decided in the past to use another version of the Head and Shoulders line, but no luck so far, as far as the oily factor goes.  They all seem to do the same thing.  I understand that a dandruff shampoo is suppose to help in moisturizing the scalp to prevent flakes, but my hair shouldn't have to suffer as well.  I also don't see ANY improvement in being able to brush my hair after use of any of the other products either.  I will probably not recommend this product to others or use it again myself.

    I have used this brand and style of shampoo for many years. It has always provided me with a crisp, clean feeling when in the shower. It has a nice smell and it builds in a good lather once hair is thoroughly wet. I think this product is a great value and would recommend this to both men and women.

      I've used Head & Shoulder's dandruff Shampoo for years and it has always worked well for me. Only thing I've noticed now that I've gotten older it sorta seems as if it may be taking a bit longer to get rid of my dandruff but I don't wash my hair daily so that might be the issue why it's taking longer to work. But I love this product it has always been my go to dandruff shampoo for years.

        I have very bad dandruff and this is the only shampoo that keeps it under control. I have tried many other and none work like this. This shampoo is worth the price. I would recommend this shampoo to anyone struggling to control their dandruff.

        Head and Shoulders is a great shampoo, helps with the itchiness of your head, keeps the dandruff at bay. Works swell on other parts of your body that might be itching as well.
        Smell is wonderful clean smell. Not over baring as other shampoos can be.

        Effectiveness
        Does what it is advertised for.

        Comments about Head & Shoulders Classic Clean (2 in 1):

        Around Christmas time when the weather gets cold and dry, it will really effect my dandruff and this is the only product which I know I can guarantee to sort it out effectively. I have tried many of the products that shops and hairdressers have to offer, some being a lot more pricey yet I always end up coming back to this product as it's simply the most effective. Other then using this product to reduce and eventually get rid of my dandruff I also find it very helpful in removing color from my hair. I dye my hair multiple times, often changing the color very often, and rather then using harsh chemicals to remove the previous color I find head and shoulders does this without ruining my hair a tenth as much as bleach would. All in all this product is a must in my bathroom cabinet.

        Effectiveness
        Gets rid of dandruff completely when used for a period of time. When used on hair without dandruff though it can be too greasy as a normal shampoo.

        Scent
        I love the original scent and the minty ones the most.

        The classic clean version of head and shoulders is my favorite. It washes your hair, while also fighting any dandruff and possibly preventing dandruff. It is the only head and shoulders shampoo that I use on a regular basis and whenever I get dandruff. It relieves your scalp from all that itching and scratching you want to do when you have dandruff.

        Effectiveness
        It's very effective at getting rid of dandruff. Usually within a couple of washes my dandruff is gone. It depends on how bad the dandruff actually is, but usually within a couple of washes. Sometimes it may only take one wash. It leaves your hair clean, smooth, and dandruff free. It is also a good basic cleansing shampoo that cleanses your hair of any oil, dirt, or mess.

        Scent
        The scent is clean and smelling fresh. It's subtle and not too overwhelming. It leaves your hair feeling fresh and nice. It also leaves your hair smelling clean for a long time.

        Comments about Head & Shoulders Classic Clean (2 in 1):

        Good shampoo for regular use but doesn't do much for itchy scalp or dandruff. I have used this when my head hasn't been itching bad or for just a regular shampoo plus conditioner.

        Effectiveness
        Doesn't relieve itchiness

        Scent
        Smells better than most dandruff shampoo brands.

        No More Dandruff with head and shoulders

        Comments about Head & Shoulders Classic Clean (2 in 1):

        I had awful dandruff since I was a kid. My brother and I hated when my Mom would make us sit on the floor so she could scratch it out with a comb. I can still remember the day she took us to our doctor and he told her to go buy some head and shoulders shampoo. I have been using it ever since and so has my brother. The way it just instantly stopped the dandruff was amazing. I don't have to worry about flakes of dandruff falling from my head onto my shoulders and me walking around with white flakes on my clothes. That's so embarrassing. But with Head & Shoulders I don't have that problem anymore.

        Effectiveness
        When my Mom first started using Head & Shoulders 2 in 1 when I was 15 years old I was not so sure about it. But after using it for a couple weeks I started to see the difference in my hair and scalp. My scalp was always so flaky and caked with dandruff, but with this 2 in 1 that was cleared up and has stayed away for the last 15 years. I will always use Head & Shoulders because if I don't I know my hair and scalp won't be healthy.
