Sorry for the TMI but, like many women, I do suffer from dandruff and typically use shampoos aimed at reducing it. I’ve used Head & Shoulders for the past year or two, and naturally since it was working just fine I got antsy to try something new I chose Suave Nourishing Anti-Dandruff shampoo because it’s a new product (I’m such a sucker) and it promises to keep hair shiny and smooth with the addition of coconut and shea butters.
Long story short, I found the exact opposite to be true. I thought my hair was much more dry than usual after using this shampoo and my regular conditioner, to the point that I only used it once and I’m not really willing to try it again. It also tangled quite a bit and felt very coarse. Looking at the ingredients, I’m going to place the blame on sodium chloride (salt) and citric acid being fairly high on the list. I can’t imagine either of those being very gentle on your hair.
Although you can purchase this shampoo for about $3.79 on drugstore.com, I can’t say I’d recommend it. I’ve got another shampoo to try out this week (highly recommended by some of my favorite bloggers), so hopefully I’ll have a more positive review to share next week.
