Head & Shoulders "Instant Relief" Shampoo - My Experience

Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson

During the winter months, my skin tends to dry out a good bit, including my scalp and sometimes it can be painful and itchy.  Does anyone else experience this?  I also find that when I work out in the winter months, sweat causes my scalp to become even more irritated.  So I always have to switch my routines up.

I've used Head & Shoulders shampoo & conditioner on and off for years but I've most recently found that it has really helped soothe my dry, itchy scalp.  When Head & Shoulders approached me about trying their Instant Relief Shampoo with peppermint complex and tea tree essence, I immediately said YES PLEASE!  I actually already had some of their classic clean shampoo and conditioner in my shower and I had started making the switch in hopes of getting relief from my dry and itchy winter scalp.

What I love most about their Instant Relief Shampoo is that it immediately feels cool on your scalp (that's the peppermint complex) and it smells soooooo good!  When using this shampoo I feel immediate relief and my scalp feels calm and much less's very soothing.  My hair also feels moisturized and soft too!

I've decided to keep this shampoo on hand and in my gym bag as well.  When faced with washing my hair after a sweat session, this will be my go-to shampoo.  I definitely recommend washing your hair with this after sweating throughout a workout.  It will leave your hair feeling so clean plus it will alleviate that unsettling itchy feeling.  Your gym girlfriends may just be asking if they can use it too!

What do you do to relieve your dry itchy winter skin & scalp?!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
