Salon Science Hydraluxe Shampoo 250ml
Utterly brilliant shampoo
I suffer with slight dandruff that always gets worse towards the end of the summer: by the start of spring, I can be a veritable walking snowstorm. I have tried umpteen products, and there are lots of things that sort of work - so I was really pleased to get to try this new range from Salon Science.
There are always articles and blogs about what beauty products you can skimp on, and what you should splash out on: shampoo and conditioner routinely comes out as something you need to spend on. I have experience with one other premium anti-dandruff/clearing range, about a third again as expensive as this. However, though better than budget brands, the results weren't enough to convince me to invest in a full-time adherence to a premium haircare range. I have, though, been completely converted now - Salon Science is absolutely excellent, worth every penny, and I will have no hesitation about reinvesting.
You need only a small blob of shampoo to cleanse your hair and scalp with, so a bottle lasts a good long time. It lathers up well, though not excessively, and is easy to wash out, leaving hair feeling clean but not stripped. It has a very slightly cooling/stimulating sensation - almost as though mint or menthol is present - but this is by no means unpleasant. The fragrance isn't strong, and I can't smell anything on my hair after use: I really like that, as I hate a face full of scent when I turn over in bed - but if you prefer stronger perfuming, this may not be for you.
I find this leaves my hair really clean, and my scalp feeling great: no itchiness or scurf whatsoever. I've been using this with the matching conditioner, so I can't really comment on how this works without. That said, I have fallen in love with the whole range: it really, really works, and if you're struggling to deal with an itchy scalp or dandruff, this is well worth the investment.

This product did a genuinely good job at eliminating my dandruff with just one wash. I was surprised as to how easily it lathered after I hadn't washed my hair for a week. The consistency is a little thin; I much prefer a thicker liquid. Also, the shampoo and conditioner bottles are almost identical, making it difficult to identify which-is-which in the shower given my terrible (really terrible) eyesight. But these are minor quibbles. All that really matters is that Salon Science Hydraluxe Shampoo Aquacacteen does live up to it's claims; it soothes the scalp and eliminates flakes.

I have suffered from a dry, flaky scalp and dry hair for years and have tried so many shampoos for dandruff that have either been too strong and damaged my hair or just not effective at all.
This product does absolutely wonders at getting rid of my dandruff and moisturising my hair at the same time. It has an added bonus as my hair seems bouncier and thicker too !
