Hey everyone! It’s Hallease here and I wanted
to get on to make a video about different shampoos I have tried to combat my kind of
seasonal dandruff slash Seborrhoeic dermatitis-y scalpy stuff based on when I tried products
that went a-rye and my scalp was like “No!” and freaked out. There is a routine, there
is a technic that you should use. The first thing is shampoo twice. Every time you’re
cleansing your hair shampoo twice. The first shampoo you do breaks up the dirt off of your
scalp. The second shampoo rinses the dirt and gets the dirt off of your hair. The second
thing that I think you should think about or consider is frequency. When everything
is fine with my hair and everything is good, my scalp is healthy, I’m cleansing maybe once
a week. Maybe I’m getting my hair wet every day but I’m only actually cleaning it once
a week, week and a half – maybe twice a week if I’ve been active, working out playing soccer
– whatever. But when I’m having a scalp outbreak when i’m having issues. I’m cleansing my hair
two three maybe four times a week. Especially if I’m trying to get my scalp back to equilibrium
and I’m still working out consistently, I’m cleansing my hair often. The first product
that I used that has always been tried and true for me, it’s my go-to ol’ reliable is
Head and Shoulders. Very affordable product, very easy product 2 in 1 they claim its a
2 in 1 but that’s the thing about Head and Shoulders this stuff will strip you dry. When
I use Head and Shoulders for my scalp issues I make sure to dilute it in a little applicator
bottle. I’ll put about a quarter size amount, and this is back when I had 10 inches of hair
and shrunken. I would put a quarter size amount of this into a 5 ounce applicator bottle give
it a good shake, and use that to work it into my scalp. And I would focus this on my scalp.
By the time you’re rinsing it out of your hair its going to be taking the dirt off the
rest of your strands as its coming out – so don’t really work this into the shafts of
your hair. Really focus it on the scalp. I would use this once for the first wash and
then for my second wash I would use a moisturizing shampoo. Something that isn’t quite as stripping
but is still cleaning my hair. The one that I use and keep with me handy, good ol’ Shea
Moisture Strengthen Grow and Restore Shampoo with the Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I find
that the shampoo is so light and moisturizing and none stripping that compliments the Head
and Shoulders really well. Because I like to experiment, I stepped away from Head and
Shoulders for a little while when I was having dandruff stuff and decided to try Neutrogena’s
This was something that I heard a lot of people would try when they were having scalp issues.
I also once again bought the 2 in 1 because I figure this stuff is going to be strong
and try to combat that as much as possible. Again, the thing with this product is it is
almost identical in ingredients as Head and Shoulders. The differences in the products
are almost negligible. They both have the same dandruff fighting chemical stuffs in
them. Very similar regimen, I would use it again with an applicator bottle directly to
my scalp and try to focus it on my scalp and keep it away from the shafts of my hair. So
that was the Head and Shoulders and the Neutrogena. Now, at this point I decided “Okay. These
work well enough, but they’re so stripping. Can I find something that isn’t as stripping
but still can help with my dandruff?” So while wandering about I came across Shea Moisture’s
Dandruff Control Shampoo and Hair Masque. So I tried both of these together as a regimen.
Now with this because it is a Shea Moisture product and I know its going to be relatively
natural blah blah blah…I used this twice, this was my shampoo twice was using just this
product. I love the smell of this product. It’s like, the best way I can describe the
smell of this product, is your favorite auntie that does hair. She’s a hair dresser so she’s
just got that smell…I don’t know…and this shampoo it lathers really well which is awesome.
It gets your hair pretty clean without stripping it which is lovely as well. Now after I would
shampoo twice with this, I would follow up with the Hair Masque as my conditioner. While
I will say this is a great moisturizer I don’t really feel like this combo really did anything
for my dandruff control. I would find that I would wash and while my hair felt great
and my scalp was technically clean – within a day it would still start itching again.
That didn’t happened when I used the Head and Shoulders or the T-Gel. So, I used that
for a little while but I really kind of considered it a wash, I didn’t really feel like it worked.
Finally I stumbled upon this product, and this is now the product that is my go-to product
whenever I have itching dandruff, flakes or I just feel like I’ve been working out a lot
I want to make sure my hair is getting a really good deep cleanse aside from the Terressentials
mudwash – which is what I use on my hair all the time. Now my happy medium of being extremely
effective but also not completely stripping my hair and scalp of every single thing is
Jason. Jason’s dandruff relief treatment. Am I saying Jason right? I don’t even know…anyway!
They got little blop blops on the stuffsie stuffs I dont be knowing how they work…anyway!
I was first turned on to this product by Myliek Teal of CurlBox. I follow her on Snapchat.
If y’all don’t follow her on snapchat you totally should because her snaps are…I just
want to someday aspire to have that level of just business forwardness…She actually
goes through dandruff flake issues from time to time and of course she’s always trying
products because of the nature of her business. So she was talking about using a different
version of Jason Dandruff Treatment Shampoo. It was still brown like this but it had a
sort of white accent on it. And she talked about how much she really liked it and it
was really effective and basically gave a little mini snap review on it. And I thought
to myself “okay Myliek hollerin’ at it, I’ll try it out.” So I went to my local healthy
grocer and they didnt have the specific one she used but they had this one, and I thought
to myself “well you know this the dandruff shampoo adjacent to the one she was talking
about” And this stuff has been awesome. I will say it is more expensive than the T-Gel
or the Head and Shoulders which is a bummer, I want to say this is like $10ish dollars
getting up into the 12s maybe…I’ll try to find a price on Amazon and show it to you.
This stuff has been the most effective and has really worked. The smell is not so pleasant.
It’s got this weird rosemary sulfur smell because Sulfur is the ingredient that is helping
combat the dandruff in this. It’s 2% Sulfur and 2% Salicylic Acid….[struggles to pronounce
it]. So this shampoo it doesn’t smell bad but its pungent and its like some twisted
rosemary smell. That’s really the best way to describe it. Twist rosemary. This rosemary
is strong. I really…I mean I really like it guys…I really like it. So, if budget
permits and you have dandruff scalp issues try this out and let me know what you think.
If you have tried it and it did or didn’t work – comments below holla at me and let
me know. And if any of y’all have any other alternatives out there. You know hashtag home
treatments hashtag Tea Tree oil. I mean I will say for me throughout my natural hair
journey and this and that, I have always tried to do the home remedies first. I have tried
Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint, things of that nature and found that they just weren’t strong enough.
And so one thing I will say to the naturals out there is that while of course I’m an advocate
of keeping it organic and natural as you possibly can, if you feel like your hair and your scalp
need something more medicated — then go to something more medicated. There’s nothing
wrong with that, there’s no shame in that. At the end of the day healthy hair should
be your goal. And if you need something more medicated to achieve a healthy scalp, healthy
hair, healthy life then go to something more medicated. There’s nothing wrong with that,
there’s no shame in that. So, all of that being said, this is now what I use when I
have dandruff scalp issues. When I try products and the eff up my head and I need to get back
to Equilibrium — this is the product that I reach for now. I hope that helped. And I
will see y’all soon. And…Happy New Year…and I’ll see you when I see you!
