Say goodbye to discomfort for good

Content Producer / September 11 2023

The product

Itchy scalp is the silent killer. Okay, a bit extreme but it is genuinely a topic we need to talk about more. The little white flakes that fall as you aggressively (not so subtly) itch at your scalp are screaming at you to try out a new shampoo. 

And we’re not out here to say the other anti-dandruff products aren’t going to solve your problems, but the L’Oreal Professionnel Scalp Advanced Anti-Discomfort Shampoo is actually going to do so much more. Relieving you of all your sensitive scalp symptoms, the lightweight gel easily lathers up to leave your hair and scalp soothed, cleansed and hydrated.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this scalp-reviving saviour.

The panel

BEAUTY/crew sent the L’Oreal Professionnel Scalp Advanced Anti-Discomfort Shampoo to a panel of 50 people suffering from the symptoms of a sensitive scalp.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the L’Oreal Professionnel Scalp Advanced Anti-Discomfort Shampoo.

The comfort it delivered: We know, it says it right there on the bottle… Anti-Discomfort. But how often does the bottle actually deliver on its promises? Our Review Crew® members are here to guarantee you that this is the shampoo that will genuinely relieve all your sore scalp symptoms. Which leads us on to point two...

The itch-relief it offered: Having a sore scalp goes beyond feeling uncomfortable. The physical need to itch at your scalp can be totally embarrassing when it just won’t calm down! Luckily our reviewers found that this lightweight gel was able to properly relieve their itchy scalps. 

It helped with oily hair woes: Did you know that oily hair and dandruff actually go hand in hand? To combat this truly dire combination, our Review Crew® found that the Anti-Discomfort Shampoo was able to lather up and effectively scrub away product (and oil) build-up from their scalp. The end result? Squeaky clean strands. 

The verdict

“I suffer from scalp psoriasis and most other scalp shampoos don’t lather or feel like you’re actually washing sweat or product built-up out of your roots. Whereas L’Oreal Professionnel Scalp Advanced Anti-Discomfort Shampoo covers your whole hair in suds and penetrates the hair and rinses out easily giving your hair a truly clean and healthy feeling. My psoriasis has been under control for the first time in years thanks to this wonderful product. The shampoo smells divine and not much is needed to wash my hair, which is very long and thick.”

“During the cold winter months I am prone to a dry itchy scalp so I was excited to try this product. As marketed this helped relieve my itchy scalp and left my hair feeling clean and smooth. I was pleased to find that it lathered well, unlike similar products. My hair can become quite oily between washes but I found while using this, this wasn't the case and I could go an extra day or two between washes.”

“It lathers really well, removes all the buildup from styling products and dry shampoo and provides relief from any irritation I might have been experiencing due to product residue. Regular use has transformed my scalp, leaving it feeling noticeably healthier and more comfortable. Additionally, I've noticed a significant improvement in the shine and overall appearance of my hair. After rinsing out the shampoo, both my hair and scalp feel so clean. The shampoo's effectiveness in eliminating buildup is truly impressive. While I did notice that my hair tends to knot up a bit more with this shampoo, it's reassuring to know that a quality conditioner easily resolves any tangles, leaving my hair manageable and smooth.”
