Who really loves their anti-dandruff shampoo? So isn’t it great that you can now enjoy using your favourite shampoo and conditioner, and simply add your dandruff-controlling Actives into it?
Dandruff is the excess shedding of the top layer of the skin of the scalp. It can have various causes, but the underlying issue is often the overgrowth of a yeast-like fungus called Malassezia, which thrives on excess sebum.
This Shot combines 3 naturally-derived antimicrobial actives - Piroctone Olamine, Defenscalp™, and Tea Tree Oil - to rectify this Malassezia imbalance and restore the normal ecosystem of the scalp. Salicylic Acid and Propanediol have been added to lift and remove flakes and to help stop itchiness and irritation.
This is one dandruff-controlling product that’s truly head and shoulders above the rest!
This Shot has been developed to be compatible with most rinse-off hair products.
Safety, in terms of both people and the planet, is based on regulatory guidelines and further corroborated by the Environmental Working Group database, so you can be sure it's free from any chemicals or toxins of concern, and meets the strictest standards for your health.
This naturally-derived active has antifungal properties which help to control the spread of the dandruff-causing fungus, Malassezia. It doesn’t only tackle the flaking and itching symptoms but tackles the root cause.
A patented multifunctional plant-derived ingredient designed to naturally regulate the ecosystem of the scalp and its normal defense system. Contains Oenothein B, which is known to have anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps regulate sebum production.
Helps to remove any build-up of excess sebum, and lift and remove flakes.
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Has antimicrobial properties that help reduce the buildup of yeast in the scalp*, which contributes to dandruff. Tea tree oil also helps wash away excess oil and flakes.

Twist the base to pop the pump. In the palm of your hand, pump approx. 2 - 4 drops into any rinse-off hair product that can be used on the scalp. Mix it up and massage very well into the scalp (even better if you have a scalp massager). Wait a minimum of 2 min (the longer the better) before rinsing.
Should offer approx. 20 - 25 uses per bottle.
Ingredients are carefully selected for your safety, but if you might be sensitive please do a skin patch test first. Note that HairShots™ are concentrated and designed specifically to be used diluted in a hair product, and not alone.
Using in any shampoo (including dandruff shampoos)
Using on chemically-treated hair
Using 1 - 3 times per week
- Ensure you’re washing the scalp, not only the hair
- Massage - don’t scrub
- For very oily hair, consider using an oil-controlling shampoo as Malassezia thrives on sebum
I wanted so much to like this product. 4 washes in and my scalp is still flakey as hell. Not really sure why. Super frustrating
I’m a first time hair shots buyer and user and recently received my order. My first use of hair shots was pleasing. My scalp was left cleaned, refreshed and soothing. My hair had volume, felt soft and looked healthy. Definitely happy with my initial results and can’t wait to see further progress with continued use.
I bought ‘no flakes’ for my daughter as I had been loving other products in the range and my daughter was experiencing pretty bad flaking.
We noticed the difference after 1 wash. By wash 3 it had 100% cleared up.
She will continue to use to keep it at bay. It’s is easy to use. She’s 11 and loves making a ‘potion’ in her hand before applying. Will last forever too given she uses 3 ‘pumps’ per wash.
Tried it 3 times so far and my scalp feels fresh and no itch! Can’t wait to see the medium to long term results.
