About Head & Shoulders
Since 1950, head & shoulders has been at the forefront of scalp and hair science, significantly advancing the treatment of dandruff and scalp problems. Along with professional advice and expert insight we have a wide range of products to care for your scalp and nurture your hair.
The biggest benefit is 100% flake free hair.* Dermatologists recognize that regular use of head & shoulders is one of the effective ways to help eliminate dandruff symptoms, including a tight, itchy scalp with regular use.
However, h&s doesn’t feel, or smell, like what you might expect from an anti-dandruff shampoo. Instead of a medicated aroma, there are fresh, zingy scents and the rich formula leaves hair feeling soft and manageable. head & shoulders is gentle enough for daily use – even on hair that’s colored – leaving hair fresh and deeply cleansed and your scalp nourished and healthy.
Our anti- dandruff shampoos are complemented by a range of conditioners that are rich in intensive moisturisers. And there are enough products to choose from for various hair types, every kind of hair, from fine to frizzy, damaged to limp.

Our patent pending formula is gentle and kind to hair, leaving it feeling soft and smelling fresh thanks to a range of fresh, zingy aromas. No wonder it’s used by leading celebrity hairdressers like Ben Skervin.
As for dandruff? What dandruff?
head & shoulders is rich in Pyrithione Zinc (PTZ) which is highly effective at fighting and helping prevent dandruff symptoms. We even went as far as developing a unique particle shape to increase PTZ’s effectiveness.
This helped us create HydraZinc complex, available in all head & shoulders products. The Formula with HydraZinc works so well because it’s highly bio available, meaning it acts on your dandruff symptoms very effectively. And that means you begin to control flakes and itchy, irritable scalps quickly, too.
Now, head & shoulders scientists are taking dandruff and dry scalp research to the next level with the Malassezia Genome Project. Together with leading collaborators, they’ve sequenced the genome of Malassezia globosa. This should create more opportunities for even more effective future dandruff and dry, itchy scalp treatments.
