Today my barber recommended me to change my shampoo and use conditioner.(According to him I have dry hair and dry scalp/dandruff which is infact correct)
He showed some shampoo from TIGI(Unilever). He said professional shampoos are on par with the general consumer-based brands.
I currently use Clinic plus(nothing fancy).
I feel I should start caring for my hairs now since I have been really ignorant about in my student life.
I would like to know if someone has experience with TIGI based products?
Is it another marketing gimmick?
Can you recommend something?

Hey Emrebel,

Dry Scalp and Dry Hair is so annoying. It is something that should be taken care of. If you're confused about which shampoo you should use to treat this, I will suggest you Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo. It will help you treat your dry hair.

If you don't like it by any chance, here is a list of the best shampoo for dry hair. It is a list created by the user's personal experience. You will find a suitable shampoo for you.

Take Care of you and your body :)

Regards,
Rishabh Bansal

I have been using various L'oreal shampoos, they are pretty good. If you have an enrich salon near you, you can ask over there for a suitable shampoo for your hair. They usually cost about 650 a bottle.

How often do you shampoo your hair ?

I heard this hairdresser say it should be done every day.
Good lord no. Shampoos at the end of the day are still chemicals that will damage your hair over time. Use it if you feel your hair is getting oily, sticky/gross maybe once or twice a week. Washing your hair with cold water should be enough for day to day.

It looks like your barber is just trying to exploit your condition to sell his product. I would not suggest TIGI products since they are very expensive and it might not be beneficial in your case. There are lots of cheap products and DIY solutions to take care of dandruff. If you are genuinely concerned about dandruff i suggest you visit a dermatologist he will give you the best advice.

I have tried many brands. And I always keep coming back to L'Oreal be it their professional range or the consumer range. Both are great. You can try and change many shampoos but honestly shampoo won't do much for dry hair. Conditioner can. I used jojoba oil conditioner bought from a salon. I have forgotten the brand. It was the best conditioner I have used for dry hair. Also use hair serum daily. No exceptions.
Wash 3-4 times a week.

All you need are these two ->
But get them from Nyka and not Amazon.
Use it once a week and rest of the days wash with water if needed. You can also use twice a week if you feel like it. I dont. Infact sometimes i go 10-15 days without shampoo. After shampoo, apply masque and keep it on for 5-10 mins.


If you have dandruff use this - https://www.amazon.in/Abbott-Selsun-Shampoo-120ML/dp/B07CJXFLQ7
Get it from Pharmeasy for 20% off.
Use it once a week before the above shampoo and masque. Apply it and let it stay for 5mins. The shampoo should reach the scalp.
Then after a month, use it once or twice a month depending on how bad your dandruff is. If you have dandruff on eyebrows or beard, you can use this shampoo on that too. Shake well before use.


The above are costly but work so well. These are professional products. I have not found a better dandruff shampoo. It even cures other fungal infections if you have any, just apply over it. It was recommended by my doc 3-4yrs ago and using it since.. Works very well. has a slight smell. So sundays are the best.

OP. Any decent shampoo will do it. Amway is good, this one is very good :

HOWEVER shampoo is one variable in the whole equation. Having a good diet is way better than applying shampoos although you should obviously keep your scalp clean using shampoos. I had very dry hair and skin, regular use of high quality fish oils kinda cured that problem for me in no time. Work on the root cause not symptoms.

I would totally agree with this part. Nutritious Diet and a good water drinking habit are very necessary. I am trying to improve on fibers and vit and try to reduce oil in the diet.
