  • Kiehl's Scalp Treatment and Dandruff Shampoo Review


    will I love the new Dandruff shampoo & Scalp Treatment?

    There's one thing I always buy from Kiehl's and that is their Herbal Shampoo & Scalp Treatment For Dandruff Control. Years ago I reviewed about how well this shampoo worked for me but apparently it didn't work well for others (e.g my bff Buaya Wing). I love the shampoo but after using it for a long time, it made my hair very dry. This is normal when you use dandruff control shampoos unless you're using 2-in-1 shampoos like Pantene or Head & Shoulders. From time to time I would change shampoo (can't resist exploring other products in the market) but I will always go back to using Kiehl's.

    SO to my horror, I discovered that the dandruff shampoo that I so loved has been discontinued and replace with a more advanced solution combining Kiehl's expertise for skin and hair care. I was skeptical but excited at the same time. Will it be better?

    the new dandruff fighting duo

    Here's how the duo product looks like, instead of the old packaging where blue text use with white background, it's now switch to white text on blue background. Kiehl's says to meet the needs of its sophisticated customers, they're offering a gentle, yet efficacious system to treat and promote healthy scalp and hair a pleasant, refreshing exfoliation for the scalp and a soothing, enjoyable aromatic shampoo experience. One to restore a healthy balance to scalp while prepping for the second product, a treatment shampoo that works to help prevent the recurrence of dandruff symptoms. 

    the first step - prepare your scalp with
    Kiehl's Deep Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Treatment

    The Kiehl's Deep Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Treatment 100ml/RM95 is similar to when you go to the salon and the hair stylists always recommends to purify and remove dead skin cells on your scalp before shampooing when they see you have dandruff. It comes in a tube form where you flip open the cap and squeeze the product out. The direction says to apply on moist/dry scalp massage and leave for 5 minutes before rinsing. However I find myself finishing the tube faster than the shampoo because for 100ml a tube, I'm using 1/4 - 1/3 the amount on my scalp. This means one tube will probably last me 3-4 times of use only. 

    Formulated with Vitreoscilla Ferment, known to be rich in vitamins and minerals, combined with micronized Apricot Seed and Argan Shells, this preparation helps to restore a healthy balance to the scalp.

    Scent: Minty
    Texture: light, lotion like with Apricot Seeds & Argan Shells.
    Color: peach colored
    Feel: cooling, minty sensation upon applying onto scalp thanks to Menthol Leaves used.

     second step - wash using
    Kiehl's Scalp Purifying Pyrithione Zinc Dandruff Shampoo

    After 5 mins (which I think is too fast! I'm enjoying the minty sensation) rinse and wash with the Kiehl's Scalp Purifying Pyrithione Zinc Dandruff Shampoo 250ml/RM75. The shampoo is supposedly gentler and has essential oils - Rosemary Leaf & Marjoram Oil plus hydrating Aloe to avoid stripping hair of its natural moisture and shine. To be honest, I still needed to use a conditioner after shampooing, my hair still feels stripped and dry. Did it stripped my hair color?  I can't answer that as I only use the duo product once a week to treat my dandruff while alternating between shampoos. However I love the same minty cooling sensation it gives during washing and after!

    Though I'm not sure if I should enjoyed that because according to Paula (Cosmetic Cop) Menthol actually irritates your skin.

    Scent: minty with faint herb
    Texture: liquid cream
    Color: white
    Feel: minty cooling sensation during washing & after

     while waiting for my scalp treatment put on a mask

    I still can't get over my favorite shampoo being discontinued and I have my doubts with the new duo products that replaces it. While the shampoo is much gentler and I enjoyed the minty cooling sensations that it gives and the treatment purifies and exfoliates my scalp, I really think the old shampoo did a better job at controlling my dandruff. BUT that's me, maybe it would worked better for someone else. 

    Also I wish the treatment came in a bigger tube than a 100ml for RM95 (well it's still cheaper than doing it at the salon right?).
