I’m partnering with my favorite haircare brand Head & Shoulders again for today’s post. By now, you know how much I swear by Head & Shoulders. It’s my favorite everyday shampoo and conditioner because it keeps my scalp healthy and hair silky smooth. I’ve tried other shampoos in the past (from other drugstore brands to fancy custom formulas that cost an arm and a leg) and, yet, I always return to my trusty Head & Shoulders.
Even though it’s a brand that I use on a nearly everyday basis, I’ve still learned so much from working directly with the brand. I started to use it because it simply works, but now I know even more and want to pass the tips along to you. For the last post, I learned that using the Head & Shoulders conditioner in addition to the shampoo is critical because another cosmetic conditioner can actually wash away up to 70% of the dandruff-fighting ingredients. I have to confess that I had been usually skipping the conditioner altogether partly out of laziness and partly because I had this idea that conditioner would leave my hair too poofy or fluffy. Now I’m following my shampoo with the conditioner and I cannot believe how smooth my hair is now. I can blow dry my hair and not need to use a single hair product to achieve silky locks.
When I read the creative brief for this post, my mind was blown. It’s such a simple concept, but it’s one that I had truly never thought of or considered. Your scalp is the same as the skin on your face; I guess in my mind I see the hairline and considered it to be a different element altogether. But your scalp is a continuation of the skin from your face and should be treated as such! I had no idea, but your scalp can actually show signs of aging especially due to damage from scalp issues like flaking and dryness which can lead to breakage and dullness in hair.
Mind blown, right?
But it makes sense when I thought about it. I spend a good bit of time every morning and night on my skincare routine. The products I use not only help make my skin look its best now but also ensures it will still look as great in the future. My haircare routine should do the same.
Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Collection has skin-inspired benefits, which moisturizes, rejuvenates and detoxifies the scalp, creating a healthier foundation for hair to grow. That’s why it’s the first haircare brand to win a Skin Award (Cosmopolitan‘s 2018 Skin Awards).
For these photos, I washed and conditioned my hair with H&S Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner and blew it dry straight. I didn’t use any other hair products or straightening tools… look at that healthy, shiny part!
