Finally!! a shampoo that works -- for dandruff at least...
on 6 December 2012
After many years (my whole life, in fact) of having a dry and flakey scalp, I have finally found a shampoo that works. Since i was a child i have tried many different products to try and eliminate dandruff, using various shampoos such as Head and Shoulders, Polytar, T Gel and Nizoral, to name a few. After years of treatment and no results, I came across this shampoo in my local pharmacy. At first I wasn't going to bother purchasing it because of the past experiences I have had with anti-dandruff shampoos, but decided to give it a chance. I picked up the Alpecin Double Effect because it apparently fights against hair loss as well as dandruff, althought I am only 23 and not worrying about hair loss at my age, i thought i'd give it a go, not to expect results but perhaps to prove that yet another shampoo will fail in treating my scalp for dandruff. I did not notice any results after the first use, but then again we must give these things a chance to work as they say. I was pretty surprised after the second wash, as the amount of dandruff that usually comes from my scalp seemed to be reduced. Following several washes I am very pleased to discover that the shampoo actually works - not a flake of dandruff in sight. I am unsure if it actually fights against hair loss, but if you have had problems over the years with dandruff, I would suggest giving Alpecin a chance. Althought i suppose everyone is different.
