Head & Shoulders


Our favourite Head & Shoulders features

What's your fave feature of H&S 3Action Formula?

Having had the chance to put Head & Shoulders through some extensive testing, now is a great time for us to share what we love most about Head & Shoulders 3Action Formula.

After 12 years of researching, developing, testing and perfecting, Head & Shoulders have produced a product which cares for both your hair and scalp whilst allowing you to have a luxurious lather in the shower. Lot's of us have already shared our fave features with the team, are you loving these great features of the new forumula too?:

  • Cleanse - Most anti-dandruff shampoos won't lather up in the same way other shampoos will, this new formula is specially developed to ensure your scalp stays healthy, whilst letting you lather up for a truly nourishing experience!
  • Protect - The H&S experts have added active ingredients such as Zinc which directly targets those pesky dandruff causing particles called Malassezia Globosa
  • Moisturise - Conditioners have been included to help the shampoo lather and spread to give you a gorgeous barnet from roots to tips
  • Scent - Lots of us have mentioned the lovely smell of the new formula helping to give us wonderfully smelling hair that lasts throughout the day

All this means your hair remains looking and feeling its very best.

I love it and so do all my friends that have tried it so far! One work colleague said she didn't want to try it as she uses Kerastase - I had to hold back my comments as her hair always looks so terribly dry and out of condition! She is clearly wasting her money!
So I used her sample instead :-)

xxfayesmithxx • 16/02/2017 - 20:37

Iv got a 3 year old little boy, he still gets really bad cradle cap/ dry skin on his head, Iv tried various things to get rid of it but nothing works... when I was bathing him I saw the head and shoulders bottle sat there and wondered if it would work?
Iv washed his hair 4 times now with head and shoulders and it seems to have worked the cradle cap has near enough gone! And he still has soft shiny hair! So looks like it does work and not just for ladies!

Hollybolly2002 • 17/02/2017 - 06:27

Gave all the samples out to friends and family and they all gave feedback😀

The older users (40 - 75 years old) really liked it but felt they needed to use conditioner afterwards.

Everyone agreed it left their hair feeling clean and nice smelling!

Most said they would buy this product.

Bunnycat • 17/02/2017 - 09:02

I've had mixed feedback, but everyone who's tried it used a conditioner after it.
Personally, I was a bit disappointed with it. My hair felt lank and greasy within 2 days of using it. I wash my hair twice a week and have never had that problem before. I'm not sure what happened as I've used the apple Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner and it was perfectly okay.
I've got a few more sheets still to come back, so more opinions to come!

jamkea • 17/02/2017 - 09:21

It was my 'ladies who lunch; day yesterday so was interested to find the result from their samples, very positive and several had passed on one of their samples; out of all the comments they received back only one was negative, they all commented on the lovely fragrance. I was asked if I had anymore samples they could pass on, but unfortunately they have all gone now, but I offered coupons for them to distribute and hopefully they will go in lots of different directions when they spread the word.

cs31 • 17/02/2017 - 09:41

The new smell and colour is what's impressed me the most, it no longer reminds me of a medicated product but an everyday shampoo

helenrachel123 • 17/02/2017 - 11:57

The people I gave it to gave positive reviews my neighbours 12 year old really like it and she has really long hair, my mum was sceptical of using it at first as was worried she wouldn't like it but she has said she was surprised with how soft and clean her hair feels. I have now made it my go to shampoo and have bought the matching conditioner to go with it and love how it has made my hair feel. My other friends were shocked that it was head and shoulders and couldn't believe how it had improved their hair.

randomros • 17/02/2017 - 12:59

It lathers up really well and takes all the greasiness out of my hair without leaving it dry

kent62 • 17/02/2017 - 13:10

Love the shampoo. Smells lovely leaves my hair shiny and feeling really clean. I have definitely been converted.

ainenic • 17/02/2017 - 13:59

It is one of those products that can be hit and miss for different people. Me personally it words great for me and the needs of my hair, I have a very sensitive scalp that can suffer from eczema flair ups from time to time and can be very painful however this shampoo doesn't sting, burn or irritate my scalp especially during bad flair ups. So much so that I have purchased the itchy scalp version.
On the other hand my friend does not find it right for her and has commented that it leaves her hair feeling greasy afterwards and quite knotted without using conditioner but at the same time she finds it difficult finding a shampoo that's right for her hair.

megey • 17/02/2017 - 14:03

I love how I can comb my hair through straight away after washing and one of my friends said they liked how it soothes their scalp, made it soft and put the life back into their hair.

iskia • 17/02/2017 - 17:46

I love pleasant flowery fragnance of shampoo and creamy consistence which makes lots of foam.This kind is better than normal Head&Shoulders,and I will definitely recommend it for everyone.

welshorchard • 17/02/2017 - 18:23

My work colleagues who I have given the samples too, are well impressed with the Head & Shoulders products, like me they haven't had to use conditioner as they are finding their hair don't need it, and when it comes to brushing your hair after you have towelled dried it, there are hardly any knots which is brilliant. The fragrance is very pleasant and feels thick and creamy and the lather is excellent. well done, a fantastic product.

Vickyrance • 17/02/2017 - 20:41

My mum loved this product but mixed views from my sisters. One doubd it didn't lather very well and the other felt their hair was dry, so I suggested to try it with conditioner.

minichoi • 18/02/2017 - 10:24

My friends loved it and felt that it left their hair nice and shiny, however people mentioned that the shampoo was harsh to their skin.

Dianeayr • 18/02/2017 - 12:54

I have given out most of my samples now, still waiting for feedback from a few of them. The ones that have got back to me, friends and a family member, have all given it a positive rating. The main things they have all mentioned was the lovely fragrance, how well it cleaned their hair and that their hair was left feeling soft and shiny.

mummy77 • 18/02/2017 - 14:31


spamjam • 18/02/2017 - 15:11

I handed out samples a week ago at my gym and yesterday received an overwhelming verdict of great shampoo. One said the lather is good another mentioned the lovely smell but overall it was the great shine and condition of the hair. The only downfall from a few ladies with coloured hair was they had to use conditioner. I did point out that Head and Shoulders also do this in the same range which I have bought myself.

AnnieMo • 18/02/2017 - 18:16

Mostly positive feedback but a couple of mixed reviews. Positives: has a lovely lather and smell, formulated carefully with thought out ingredients and a little goes a long way. Some points noted for improvements were that the shampoo doesn't add any shine to your hair so can leave it looking a little dull, whilst it lathers well it can also leave the hair feeling and even looking greasy, although it's a good shampoo it hasn't really done anything for the dandruff. The dandruff point is something I've noted as if a shampoo advertises "anti-dandruff" it's really important to see this works. For me it's a good shampoo but it didn't reduce dandruff. As a shampoo i would purchase again, for targetting dandruff not so sure

hallelewis • 19/02/2017 - 09:56

Seem to be getting mostly positive comments back, at present. There has been one or two people that are not willing to 'try a change', but other than that I am still having fun!!

sstar • 19/02/2017 - 13:39

Had only positive comments on the head and shoulders shampoo. All said it left their hair soft and shiny.

mioaracialicu • 19/02/2017 - 19:32

I'm in love with this new formula!!! The smell is amazing and my hair is so smooth and soft after using this shampoo. My friends and family loves it as well. We will definitely purchase this in the future! Great job guys! Thank you for this opportunity!

olly0504 • 19/02/2017 - 20:56

I was quite pleased with how it left my hair, have used head and shoulders in the past but not for a long time so was quite impressed by this formula. Four of my friends really like it but the other two preferred there normally brand.

jillsa • 19/02/2017 - 22:14

The main feature I've noticed this week has been the lasting smell. I never usually notice the smell of my hair (unless I've been somewhere bad like a greasy spoon and I smell like a bacon sarnie) so it is unusual for me to have nice smelling hair and notice it. I just smelt it just now and it's 10:10pm. That's 14 hours since I washed my hair and you can sgtill smell the fragrance of the shampoo. that's a nice touch.

sarahlouisa20 • 20/02/2017 - 00:46

I gave some of my friends the mystery bottles, didn't tell them the brand until after they had tried it. They thought it was fantastic and expected it to be a salon shampoo and not something they could buy from a supermarket. They were very impressed and they will be buying the Head and Shoulders 3Action formula. I personally love it too and its soothed my scalp and left my hair, which is usually dull as it's really long, shiny and full of life.

lillyfer • 20/02/2017 - 10:07

No complaints from me or my testers, really impressed with the results. The main positives been how shiny it leaves your hair and how lovely it smells.

KarenW • 20/02/2017 - 12:46

I love the way it moisturises my hair. It makes sure a difference on my dry frizzy curls.

fairyg • 20/02/2017 - 13:24

Still impressed with this shampoo, as are my testers! Have to say that my dad and brother have tried this, I think it's because they have heard me talking so much about it, anyway they both thought it was great and better than their usual 2 in 1 product and have noticed a difference to their hair. They wouldn't usually pay any attention to different products so I thought this was great feedback!

ConniePixie • 20/02/2017 - 15:36

Personally I love the smell but find that my hair gets greasy quicker with this than my normal shampoo. On a positive I do feel that straight after I use it my hair feels soft and it leaves a lovely shine. Unfortunately my sisters and friend (3 in total) that I gave sample bottles to have given the same feedback.

line • 20/02/2017 - 16:04

I have given out all my samples all of my friends and family have been very interested to try . I am getting mixed reviews although most seem to like it and have gone on to purchase it for themselves. There is a few including my self who found it made there hair feel very dry . Really enjoyed hearing everyone views

Welshygethin • 20/02/2017 - 18:44

Would of love to try this as I suffer from bad ichy scalp never mind maybe next time

Dawn444 • 20/02/2017 - 18:59

Well it was mixed reviews from all,of us. It seems the males did better as thy all have short hair and they said it felt,lovely and soft and they didn't need any conditioner with it. They also,liked the smell. Where as the females all had long hair bar one but 3 oout of 4 of us had to use extra conditioner as there wasn't enough to allow me us to brush our hair when it was wet. But overall we liked the shampoo and we will be buying it as it made our hair and scalp feel really clean.

maggie4743 • 20/02/2017 - 20:07

I have given out all my samples to my friends and family. I have received mixed reviews several friends said it made their hair feel dry. My husband really liked it and said it made his hair feel softer. I liked the shampoo but had to use conditioner, so a mixed bag of reviews so far - watch this space for more reviews it is quite good to get feedback.

littlemissams • 20/02/2017 - 23:18

I am so impressed with this product. I really love the scent, the silkiness, and the science bit! A wonderful combination. The reviews are coming back positive, including a thumbs up from my dad who is certainly not very liberal in handing out compliments normally, but he likes this!

redhuntress • 21/02/2017 - 13:59

I've had a really great response for my samples (and I was quite prepared to be honest if not!) My brother rang and said "What have you done to my hair? Its so bouncy, I need a haircut. Love it!" My sister asked if H & S did a decent conditioner as she loved the shampoo "Really creamy" and my work colleague said she'd never considered using it before now but would do from now on.

Bluehullaballoo • 21/02/2017 - 14:16

I love the fact (as do some of my testers) that it produces great results but is so quick to use as separate conditioner is not required.

Ness78 • 21/02/2017 - 21:32

The sample bottles were used by 2 family members and their family. All said how nice it left their hair and no extra conditioner needed. Soft and fluffy but in a good way was the response I got. I found it lovely on mine and my daughters hair. My daughter has quite long hair which tangles easily but after using this shampoo she didn't need to use conditioner as well. Made her hair lovely and shiny and smelling nice. Excellent reviews from everyone who used it.

Yorks1967 • 22/02/2017 - 10:34

So I have fine, flyaway & greasy hair but a lot of it and it is normally flat by the end of the day. I use Head and Shoulders Lemon normally. After using the new shampoo I still get greasy hair but it now has more body and it is soft and not as flyaway. As it does not go flat as quick it seems to take longer for the grease to show. This does not sound good but trust me it is. I used the Lemon shampoo yesterday and my hair was flat and lifeless. I think you now have a permanent convert in me :)

Cathy27 • 22/02/2017 - 10:36

Myself and everyone I have given the samples to say they are very surprised at how soft it makes our hair feel so h and s have a few new customers now !!!

mikicat0411 • 22/02/2017 - 10:36

The most impressive feature to me is the fact that the shampoo is so creamy I don't need to use conditioner on it. As my hair is quite fine, this is a bonus!

Kirstie84 • 22/02/2017 - 10:42

One of my friend commented "I didn´t like it at all. It made my hair feel like straw" and I have to agree, unfortunately.

peachymum • 22/02/2017 - 18:53

It left my hair with so much more volume and made it really easy to style.

NurseAnn • 22/02/2017 - 23:07

I've had all positive comments so far, with one form still to be returned. Most of my samples have gone to male relatives and colleagues and they are happy with the product. I like it too, particularly the smell. I do use a conditioner with it, but use conditioner normally.

Minnie0120 • 23/02/2017 - 09:36

my scalp feel so much more hydrated

Tracie • 23/02/2017 - 09:50

I found a massive improvement in Head and Shoulders to the one I used years ago. Clean hair without the medical smell. My hair is very dry and do need to use a conditioner afterwards.

overworked • 23/02/2017 - 16:41

I got great reviews on the samples I gave out the only negative I got was that the lather soon disappeared I gave the samples to people of all ages and hair types and it was a good response from them all

lanetoptoo • 24/02/2017 - 11:08

Best parts - getting friends and family together for pampering session including shampooing with the 'mystery' shampoo. Getting together a week later for the big reveal, many guesses (some correct) and many pleasantly surprised reactions.
Best quote - 'But I didn't think I liked Head & Shoulders!' Apparently it's not COOL ha ha! Well Head & Shoulders has got cool now I think.
Negative - my husband liked how clean this shampoo made his hair feel but wouldn't carry on using it - it doesn't state on the bottle that it helps with an itchy scalp (his usual shampoo is Head & Shoulders Itchy Scalp Care) and he felt it didn't calm his scalp as his usual specific shampoo does.

wobblycyclist • 24/02/2017 - 13:32

I have loved being part of this and you definitely have a convert here! Most of my friends have been equally impressed by the way it leaves your hair so soft and silky. A couple weren't so keen but as we all have different typically hair it would be impossible to please everyone in one bottle! I am so impressed that I don't need conditioner that I have to admit to keeping back a couple of the sachets for myself to take on holiday!

beckymay • 24/02/2017 - 18:53

I and many of the people who tried it bar 2 really didn't like it thy said made there hair greasy,heavy made there head itch. And say that H&S should stick to anti dandruff. And in the end I gave given rest of samples to a charity to hand out as I couldn't give it to anyone I knew and the 2 that thought was ok only took a few.
It ruined my hair I couldn't brush my hair through which ment (as my hair is down to my thigh) that my hair got matted I looked like I had dreads and was so painful trying to de-knot it. And my hair had split ends due to breakages I've never had any problems with savvycircle products and I haven't had project in ages due to ill health was really looking forward to it. Now I'm upset my hair was left terrible and that I let people try it and they had problems too. So I wouldn't give it good rating it would be -99 out of stock 100

catherinee • 25/02/2017 - 16:35

I was pleasantly surprised as were my friends and family. Great smelling and combing hair real easy leaving hair soft and manageable - "Converted".

kzedii • 25/02/2017 - 22:58

Personally found this left my head a bit itchy and however my hair did feel silkier in itself. Have had mixed reviews back form friends and family more positive then negative. Positves ones were did make hair silkier negatives were lather wasn't lasting long and worked better with conditioner then on its own.
