So recently Influenster sent me a set of L'Oreal products to try, I received them free for review but my opinions are my own.
Let's start off by saying, I have always had dandruff. That's like the one constant in my life. So, naturally, I'm always looking for a shampoo to shake things up a bit. I've tried every shampoo you can possibly think of-Head and Shoulders, Suave, Aveda, Dove, R+Co, etc. But I've never used a trio like this, so I was hopeful.
The trio includes a micro-exfoliating scalp scrub ($9.99), shampoo ($7.99), and conditioner ($7.99) in the scent Indian Lilac.
Let's start with the scent; honestly, I could not smell strong hints of anything. To me it just smells like soap. If you're sensitive to fragrances, I think this one will be just fine, as it's not bold at all.
The scrub makes a huge difference for me. I've used some higher end scrubs that are difficult to spread and feel like sand on your scalp, but this one is a micro exfoliant so the scrubies are tiny and it's easy to apply to the scalp because the formula is quite smooth.
The shampoo and conditioner also left my hair feeling a little less flakey and dry. My complaint here is that the two have different viscosities, so the shampoo comes out much slower than the conditioner. It can be quite difficult at times to get the shampoo out of the bottle. Then let's say, hypothetically, you move on to conditioner, thinking you have to squeeze quite a bit to get the product out, but then you realize you've made a grave mistake and suddenly a giant puddle of conditioner is in your palm. Hypothetically. (It happens.)
My hair looked pretty good after using this scalp care trio. One huge problem that normally comes with anti-dandruff shampoos (other than they don't work) is that they leave your hair looking dry and stringy. But if you're reading this blog post, you probably already know this. This one wasn't amazing, but I didn't feel like my hair was stripped of all that is good in this world (aka natural hair oils). I definitely have shampoos that make my hair feel better, but that's the burden I have to bear- the daily decision between silky smooth hair covered in white flakes, drier hair that is flake free. I think I'll choose the latter for now.
