Hey Guys,

Summer is right upon us. And during summer, I tend to face dry, itchy and flaky scalp. So, on my last visit to a supermarket, I picked this shampoo because it claimed to treat dandruff and flaky scalp and has cool menthol to soothe your scalp during this hot weather.

I have been using it for past couple of weeks and finally I can share my detailed experience on how it worked(nor not) for me. So let’s begin.

My Experience Using Head & Shoulders Cool Menthol Shampoo

The shampoo is a bit of thick consistency compared to other shampoos I have tried till date. It has a beautiful blue color and as soon as you open the flip cap you are greeted by cool menthol fragrance. This heavenly soothing fragrance lingers on for a while even after washing. The fragrance is minty and it instantly adds the feeling of freshness.

The shampoo lathers quite well and leaves hair and scalp clean in one go. Although I had to run towards my conditioner because it made my hair more frizzy than before. But it adds a certain bounce to my hair that I adore. As for dandruff and dry scalp, it worked like a charm.

My scalp was itch free for the next 3 days and flakes were reduced from the first time itself. Also, I recently colored my hair so would like to share that this shampoo is not suitable if you have color treated hair.

Overall, I would say, if you have mild dandruff, then this shampoo is perfect for you. It works very well to remove those flakes and soothes that itchy scalp. But if you have severe dandruff, this shampoo might not work well for you.

Yay or Nay?

I will definitely repurchase it until summer lasts. My hair feels super refreshed and bouncy. I definitely recommend it but only if you have mild dandruff and your hair aren’t color treated. It can be a perfect partner for your hair this summer.
