Whenever one has dandruff or itch on one’s scalp, most of the time people suggest Head & Shoulders. Since I seem to have both, I was many times suggested this brand. However, it never worked on my scalp. Maybe it’s not meant for my condition. I am partially relieved that it does not work on my scalp as I would not want to depend on a brand that is not cruelty-free.
