Clynol is worth a look if Head and Shoulders has worked for you in the past but you find it dries your scalp. If Head and Shoulders didn’t work for you, neither will this.

buy now on ebay Clynol Care seems appears to be the default anti-dandruff shampoo for hair salons up and down the United Kingdom.  The stylists love it.  Quite how they got themselves in that position I don’t know.  Clynol isn’t a mainstream brand, which may actually go some way to explain the appeal.  

The bottle looks cool, salon cool, and I was looking forward to this review to see if I can judge this book by its very pretty cover.  People, who work with hair and scalp 6 days a week must know what they are talking about right?


As said, the bottle is very cool and the shampoo itself is a milky white with little discernible scent.   The shampoo isn’t sulfate free, which is unfortunate for my scalp but very fortunate when it comes to washing.  Sulfate shampoos have a very luxurious feel which makes it such a tragedy that they are stripping your scalp of any natural oils it may have had.  

Immediately after washing my hair felt very clean, my scalp felt good and now 6 hours on I can feel those faint tingles of irritation.

Ingredients wise Clynol isn’t a bad shampoo.  It’s not a good shampoo by any stretch but there are far worse out there.   There are a few irritants but nothing that bad.  Counterbalanced somewhat by the fact that there is nothing that good either.  Zinc Pyrithione is a very mild anti fungal agent the active ingredient used in Head and Shoulders.  So if you have very mild seb derm this may be worth a look.  

If Head and Shoulders works for you then this is definitely worth a look.  If not, then I would look at some much better options.
