What is the best shampoo to clean your scalp?

I have tried Neutrogena, but I wanted to see if anyone had any better ideas. I don't have dandruff, but I have been noticing something different about my scalp. Hair is the same and never greasy, but my scalp just feels different lately and I think it needs a good scrubbing or something...LOL Any ideas?

  • Massage baking soda into your scalp and rinse with white vinegar. By the time your hair dries, it will not smell like vinegar, but you'll feel soooo clean!

  • Really? Baking soda and vinegar? Do you shampoo as usual afterwards?

  • Aveda shampoo/conditioner. Any type would work. You could try their Scalp benefits.

  • I use head and shoulders once every couple weeks or so just to take care of any shampoo/conditioner buildup.

  • I do the baking soda scrub and ACV (apple cider vinegar) rinse during the week, and only wash my hair with shampoo (the Paul Mitchell tea tree shampoo--its actually his men's line, but its fantastic) once a week during "Mommy's Long No-Kids Shower Time", in which I get a guaranteed hour of uninterrupted time in the bathroom to do all that pampering stuff. It works for me.

  • Try trading off on your shampoos - some clarify better than others too.

  • I have to trade up my shampoo and conditioner off and on it seems to break up the build up and about once a week I really scrub my scalp.
