Recommended Posts

Guest guest

you should email the company with your feedback to inform their future product development.

dandruff can be due to nutritional deficiency.  i recommend you eat more vegetarian foods containing zinc.  google some natural sources and incorporate a small amount into your daily intake.

Also, shampooing daily contributes to dandruff. You're basically stripping the scalps natural oils, which prevent the nourishment of your hair. Shampooing should be limited to once a week. Invest in s

Do you guys think we should even be using these western products on our kesh? Most of the products we find here in the west are filled with chemicals. Traditionally, Singhs used to wash their kesh wit

I have been using head and shoulders for as long as I can remember. I have never had any issues with it. It completely sorts out the itchy scalp and dandruff. That all changed about 3 months ago

Are you serious? "yeast formation"?

That doesn't even happen in India, much less cold and rainy England and Canada.

No one is berating you for cutting your hair. If you want to cut your hair, then cut it.

I fail to see why you would write such utterly hateful words for a physical form which our Gurus kept. This would be something like a Hindu or Muslim would write.

It sounds like argumentation for why not to keep your hair.

From experience when I have worn a head covering such as a hat or wolly hat in cold/hot weather. It has made dandruff worse due to causing more sweat build up due to cap/hat causing excess heat in scalp. 

Obviously that is not the case for everyone. I know some people who dont wear turban due to health issues as it can exacerbate certain conditions.

Yeah the new formula isn't working for me, they've removed the zinc pyrithione (Among others) which I need, as it's good for my seborrhoeic dermatitis when it flares up. I use the conditioner mostly and sparsely the shampoo (Too abrasive, only use when I need to) I order the classic formula online. Glad someone else noticed this.

They said that the new forumula is better and more advanced. 

What a load of bullsh1te. 

The new formula is made my scalp worse and is alot worse then the old bottle.

Anyone notice with their new version bottle. Not sure why they had to go change something that worked. 

Big Tera,

I'm a little bit worried about imparting my knowledge with you because MisterSingh gets his knickers in a twist whenever I do but, I'm sorry to say, this is another one of those things that I'm really good at so....seeing how I like you - will offer you some advice:

You know how I'm always going on about trying to live my life in an environmental - friendly way ?  Well, years ago, I decided never to use shampoo on my hair and soap on my face. Yes...you heard right....I don't wash my face with soap or anything other than water (and that's why I look so damn good). I'll come back to that in a minute but first lets address your shampoo issue. Ditch the shampoo bottle....any shampoo....ALL shampoos....and use a solid shampoo bar instead - like a bar of soap but different. We get ours from Lush but I presume Body Shop do them as well. You will be amazed how healthy (and dandruff free) your hair will look and feel. And, the most important thing (as well as helping save the environment) how good it is for your scalp.

Now....back to the face washing. Everyone always tells me how young the skin on my face looks and my secret is that I never use soap or face wash or indeed anything. Only water. And...........the biggest secret of them all.....(drum roll please)............Ponds Cream that I order from the Avon lady (yes that Ponds cream.....the one your mum used to have on her dressing table).  I rub ponds cream on my face just before I go to sleep and once in the morning after washing my face with nothing but water. The result is that I have the face of a little boy you might find hidden in the bedroom of an Afghan / Pakistani man. Well, not so much 'face' as such because little boys don't have beards but definately the youthful skin complexion of a lovely little bacha bazi dancing boy. One that ancient Persian poets might write religious double meaning poems about.

Lol I'm sure mistersingh won't mind if its just about facewash ect or will he? I wonder..

That is interesting on not using and facwash, that is like going back to nature and only using what our ancestors used apart from some cream. 

I have actually tried doing that but not worked for me. My face tends to need a daily scrub. As seems to get dry and flaky without washing it with some kind of soap or other. I use clean and clear exfoliating wash. It's a harsh one but with going to gym and other outdoor sports. I find it gives a good clean.

I know what you're saying BigTera but the process of saving your facial skin is a slow one....just as the skin on your face has been slowly ruined over time with the use of soap etc. All good things take time.

As for the hair washing. Yes, definitely give it a go. I'd recommend this natural Hemp and Oat one:

I'm from India. I've recently fallen back on the old and trusted Kesh Nikhar hair wash soap after having used head & shoulders and dove shampoos for years. Kesh Nikhar does have a peculiar fragrance, which isn't a bad smell either, but at least it does not have chemicals. Works like a charm and reminds me of my childhood lol. Traditional things are better most of the times. A lot of secrets that the capitalists rather we not know. If Kesh Nikhar is available in your country, that's what I'd recommend. Here in India, it's even available on Amazon.

I have used H&S for 30 plus years and its been great. I tried the Apple one at the start of this year and it made my scalp really ichy so I went back to normal. My bottle ran out and I bought another normal but I'm sure they have changed the receipe because my head has started becoming really ichy again. Im going to have to try something else!

Guest Head & Shoulders

Hi

I have also been using Head & Shoulders for the past 20 years to keep my scalp in check. After they changed the formulae it no longer works and I need to use Big Pharma products with Cortisols. Wonder if they are aware of this at Head & Shoulders research team. They are in the posession of a formulae that is worth a lot of money! Is it possible to order the old formulae shampoo online?

really then explain how I managed to catch yeast form which is referrred to as white piedra (stones due to look of attached yeast to hair shafts ) in Himachal Pradesh in 2015 , yeast float around everywhere , they just need right conditions to flourish . Only zinc based anti-dandruff shampoo like nizoral and ACV/yoghurt  treatments reduced it .

I won't dispute that you got yeast in India in 2015 from yeast flying around.

But if you look at the wording of the original poster, BigTera, that's not what he said. 

He implied that if you wear a turban, you'll get "yeast formation" as if it will spring up spontaneously:

"All that heat and sweat from wearing a head covering all day gets trapped causing excess moisture and itching build up which makes dandruff worse. ie yeast formation."

That's what I said doesn't happen, even in India.

There are 1.3 billion people in India. 1.3 billion don't have yeast.

There are 25 million or so Sikhs in India. Maybe 10 million keshadhari.

10 million don't have yeast.

Some certainly do have dandruff or other problems, but so do non-Sikhs in the West.

I mean, who do you think is the market for Head & Shoulders Shampoo?

It's false and a slander on Guru's form to suggest that wearing a turban with long hair necessarily leads to dandruff and yeast.

hygiene and changing of dastar daily is stressed in sikhi , if logically you are meant to have a full shower/bath that includes head . Singhs and Kaurs wash daily with at least water in the head if you don't want to use shampoo/soap daily  and putting good quality  oils which keep the scalp free from infections is important too, coconut oil combined with a few drops of lavendar or other oils like neem , shikakai etc will keep it clean and in good condition . Yeah , making excuses like that shows more about his lack than his wanting to do right by his kesh.

You are right. I've been using Head and Shoulders practically my whole life and since that they changed the formula last year it isn't that affective anymore and my scalp doesn't stop itching. I'm so disappointed
