Head & Shoulders Extra Thickening Treatment Review


Head & Shoulders Extra Thickening Treatment

Hi dear ones,

I always feel I am losing more hair than making it 😛 I have a problem of thin hair and it makes very difficult to manage sometimes, I really cannot style them much, I get an oily scalp the next day after washing and I always feel that I do not have that thick hair I used to have when I was much younger. Anyway, I read about this product and decided to give it a shot and it has been a month, let me review it for you today.

My experience with Head & Shoulders Extra Thickening Treatment:

I started to use this right after my shampoo and you have to apply in directly on the scalp, a total of 15 pumps is recommended and three on each parting, the 5 steps indicated above are rather easy to follow and do not look as tedious as it looks.

As soon as you apply the tonic on the scalp it feels very tingly and cool, maybe due to presence of menthol. It reminds me of my L’occitane volume mask which has menthol in it except for the fact that it has to be applied only on the ends.

There is presence of alcohol and it smells like it also 😉 it feels as if applying beer on my hair. The effect remains on the scalp for good one hour, but just after the first application, it feels my hair is nourished and stronger. Sometimes the scalp can be itchy after application, but it lasts only for couple of minutes.

I have noticed that my issue of dull and oily scalp has become better, the tonic adds more volume to my hair but does not do really do in terms of thickness. I have been using it for a month now, but no luck with hair thickening.

The application is very simple by use of the nozzle, it spreads easily. The tonic does not drip and instantly is absorbed by the scalp quickly. I also have an issue of dandruff at times, and it seems have reduced since the use of tonic.

Overall, I like the effect of the tonic, except for hair thickening, I have experienced some other good benefit. I will prefer taking prim rose supplements on doctors recommendation for better quality of hair maybe.

What I like about Head & Shoulders Extra  Thickening Treatment:

  • Easy to apply,
  • Nourishes scalp,
  • Less breakage of hair,
  • Relieves of flaky scalp,
  • Add volume to hair,
  • Does not make the scalp oily.

What I dislike about Head & Shoulders Extra Thickening Treatment:

  • There is no hair thickening even after a months use.

Rating: 3/5

  1. Ouch it sounded so good to start off with. Too bad it did not work. Have you tried the Biotique hair serum? It claims to do same thing minus the chemicals.
