I have and oily scalp and a good anti-dandruff shampoo is required to keep the scalp clean and flake free.I was quite happy with my old favourite – The Matrix Anti Dandruff Shampoo but was not able to get my hands on it ,guess everyone else was loving it too !
So I wanted to experiment a bit and tried this new shampoo when there was a sale (Pssst – It is still available on flipkart at a big discount , here !)
Price – Rs 800/- ( but I got it for Rs 585/- !!! ). I know its sounds unbelievable 🙂
PROS of Schwarzkopf Dandruff Control Shampoo
1. Good value for money – It feels expensive but the thick consitency means that not much is needed per wash and one tube can easily last more than two months if you use only once a week .
2. The packaging is traval friendly and I like the clean white tube .
3. No strong fragrance
4. Very effective in clearing of sebum (greasiness ) and flakes .
5. It also soothes (because of allantoin and zinc )the scalp for a long time .I felt no irritation or itching even after three days of using this shampoo .
6.I did not suffer from hairfall ,but I am sure it should be able to reduce hairfall too as it is quite effective in controlling the dandruff and irritation and oiliness , which are the most common causes of hairfall .
CONS of Schwarzkopf Dandruff Control Shampoo
1. Some may find it expensive .
2. It is not easily available everywhere .You will either get it at salons or online .
3. It lathers less so you don’t know how much is enough to clean the hair .
4.The worst part is that it made my hair very rough and I have to use a repairing conditioner and serum to help save my distressed tresses .
FINAL VERDICT – I rate it a 3.8/5
A shampoo that is effective on scalp irritation and controls and prevents dandruff very well but takes away the smoothness of your hair .The best way to use would be once a week and then on an sos basis so that the hair does not get damaged .
