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.

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

This product helps my hair feel less dry, less tangled, and more smooth to the touch. I use it every other day, and my hair has improved so much. I have noticed a drop in dryness and an increase of the quality of my hair.

Scent
The smell is so good. It's not like other anti dandruff products that have a heavy medicated scent

Best overall shampoo and conditioner in one

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

This is my go to shampoo and it's a bonus that it is a two in one with conditioner. I have a sensitive scalp but not so sensitive that I have to use expensive stuff so this shampoo is perfect. It is soft on my skin but leaves my hair clean and not oily or over dry. The smell is a nice subtle fresh scent that is not overpowering. The price is also great and affordable for every day use especially since it is a two in one. I have tried to use other shampoos and conditioners but I always go back to this stuff. I think I have finally realized that this shampoo is the best for my skin and hair.

Effectiveness
This shampoo thoroughly cleans my hair and leaves it soft. My hair does not get excessively oily or extra dry with this shampoo.

Scent
This scent for this shampoo and conditioner in one is fresh and clean. I find that shampoos are either too fruity or overpowering like Axe. This scent is subtle but not so subtle that my hair is lacking a clean smell.

My old standby

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

This is my very favorite shampoo, especially since it is a 2-in-1! The Classic Clean always smells so fresh and good, and it keeps me smelling great all day long. I also love how it keeps my hair feeling light and fluffy and does not cause it to turn greasy by bedtime. It does wonders in soothing my dry, itchy scalp (especially when the weather turns cold) and in keeping dandruff at bay. I highly recommend this for just about anyone - even if you don't have dandruff or itchy scalp, it's a good go-to for a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner.

Effectiveness
I have always had great luck with this 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner. It works so well and delivers on all its promises, plus it makes my hair look and feel great and does not weigh it down at all!

Scent
I think this shampoo smells really lovely. It's not a masculine or feminine scent, so anyone can use it, and it smells so fresh and clean. It lingers long enough to last all day.

This product, although it may be very effective, is ok. The problem with this product is that the item does not help the breakout my husband has around his head. Acne continues to grow but then again the break out is less than normal. The smell of this product is amazing but if a product doesn't do all the work that needs to be done then it isn't worth buying over and over.

The Head and Shoulders Classic Clean (2 in 1) product is an okay product, but I would not buy it again. The smell is off-putting and doesn't smell good to me. Also when I use it, I find that sometimes I have white things in my hair. I would actually recommend for you to use Pert Shampoo. After switching to this shampoo, my white spots in my hair vanished.

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

Everyone in the world has dandruff, no matter who they are. I, myself had a bit of excess dandruff in which my head was itchy and dry flakes were visible in my hair. I was very irritated by the flaking that I looked online for reviews on ways to fix my dandruff problem.Eventually I found out that one of the most popular products used in fighting dandruff was Head and Shoulders. After purchasing the shampoo at a nearby store, I immediately proceeded to try the product out. First of all, the smell of the classic clean Head and Shoulders is wonderful, with a clean, refreshing scent. When I first rubbed it into my scalp, the itchiness from the dandruff and the dry scalp started to fade away. After rinsing thoroughly and drying my hair, I proceeded to go about my daily activities. One thing about my day was different though. I wasn't itching my hair and seeing dandruff in my hair! Overall, Head and Shoulders is a very good product that I recommend the whole family can use!

Works if you must use a 2-in-1

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

2-in-1 products don't really do a fantastic job of washing or conditioning your hair, but this one does as good a job as any. It doesn't smell super great, but neither does it smell awful. The lather is pretty decent. Solid, but not fantastic. In terms of what it does for anti-dandruff, you'd be better going with either a proper dandruff shampoo on it's own or a proper dandruff conditioner on its own, not the two mixed together.

Effectiveness
As I said above, it works ok. It doesn't work any better or worse than pretty much any other two in one shampoo. For anti-dandruff, it works better than some things, but not as well as others. T-gel by nutregena works better, as do the standard smapoos from head in shoulders.

Scent
It smells…like Head and Shoulders. They aren't known for making products that smell really good. It's not fruity or floral or anything like that. It honestly smells a bit like minty melted plastic. But again, if you wanted good smells, go with Herbal Essence or The Body Shop. Head and Shoulders works better for dandruff than for positive smells.

My husband uses this shampoo and I ventured to try it one day when I had a dry scalp. It felt so amazing while I was washing and worked after just one use. I even used it on my baby's head when one of her washes dried her scalp and it was even gentle enough for her!

Perfect for dandruff, but makes hair dry!

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

This shampoo and conditioner in one is great if you have dandruff, but if you also have hair that is somewhat dry, this product will make that problem worse. You will notice it drying out your hair after the first use. Also, if you are female and you color your hair, this shampoo/conditioner will strip the color from your hair almost immediately. The one good thing about this product is that it does live up to its name; it is a great dandruff shampoo. If you are not really worried about dried out and fragile hair, then this will work for you.

Effectiveness
As far as dandruff shampoos go, this one is great. It definitely gets rid of dandruff and you will notice a difference after the first use.

Scent
Head and Shoulders scent is not bad, but I found it a bit too manly for my taste. If I still continued to use Head and Shoulders, I would hope that the company would produce a more feminine scent for their shampoo/conditioner products.

The best shampoo for dandruff!

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

I gave Head & Shoulders classic clean a 10 because I always had bad dandruff. I was always embarrassed to wear black to work because my dandruff was so bad. I was always scared people would think I have lice in my hair. In my family we all have problem with thinning hair. When you have dandruff it makes thinning hair worse, so I new I had to find a good dandruff shampoo. My sister said to try Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner, that it works great for her. Since I been using this shampoo, I have no dandruff and my hair has not been falling out as much as it did before. I also use Head & Shoulders conditioner to and it makes my hair so soft. I use this on my daughter hair, so she don't start getting dandruff.

Effectiveness
It helped my hair to stop flaking after two weeks of using it everyday and it makes my hair so soft after everytime I use it.

Scent
The scent has a nice smell to it and the scent stays smelling good all day long.
