Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner – Smooth and Silky Review

Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner – Smooth and Silky Review


When the climate tends to get dry, my scalp tends to get itchy and flaky. That’s when I switch to anti-dandruff shampoos. This winter that went by, I decided to pick up something different from my tried and tested and loved  The Body Shop Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and  Biotique Anti Dandruff Shampoo. One thing that tempted me was this one had a conditioner too, so if it worked well, I could skip the additional conditioner! There were 2 variants in this 2 in 1 range – Smooth & Silky and Menthol. I decided to try the Smooth and Silky one.

About Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner – Smooth and Silky

Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 combines the power of an anti dandruff shampoo and nourishing conditioner in 1 product.

  • Removes up to 100% dandruff
  • Moisturizes each hair strand from scalp to tip to make your hair extra smooth with regular use

My take on Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner – Smooth and Silky

Packaging- Comes in the typical Head & Shoulders bottle

Fragrance and Texture- Fragrance is quite strong and long lasting. If you have used the regular Smooth and Silky variant, the fragrance and texture are exactly similar to that.

I have been using this one regularly about twice or thrice a week. The first thing I noticed is this shampoo is really strong – so you need really little quantity at a time. Though it is effective in controlling dandruff, it does not do a great job of conditioning like they claim it does. It left my hair really dry. I had to follow up with a separate conditioner.  Secondly, this one caused me a lot of hair fall. I have never experienced so much hair fall with any other shampoo before. Also, if you accidentally get even a bit of it in your eyes, it stings like hell!

For this price, I wasn’t expecting this to be a miraculous product, but at least I was not expecting so much damage. But it did not give me even one reason to repurchase or recommend this product to any one. Highly disappointing.

Would I recommend Head and Shoulders 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner – Smooth and Silky?

Nope. Though it is effective in controlling dandruff, the ‘conditioner’ in it shows no results, plus it may cause hair fall.



  1. i love head n shoulders as it does work effectively on dandruff but it does dry out hair in long run and like you mentioned this 2-in-1 does not provide enough conditioning…

    • Glad it works for you. Yeah, it’s quite drying too..

  2. I rarely suffer from dandruff but my husband does. He uses head and shoulders once or twice a week. I feel bad that this one did not work for you and you had so much hair fall. I don’t like hair fall. Anti dandruff shampoos are generally harsh I guess. 🙂

    • You’re right, most of them are really harsh. TBS Ginger Shampoo is one anti-dandruff shampoo which is mild enough for regular use. 🙂
