How to buy Head and Shoulders shares | $165.33

Invest in Head and Shoulders by buying P&G shares in just a few minutes.

Head and Shoulders is an anti-dandruff shampoo brand, owned by Procter & Gamble. The brand is fronted by Claudia Winkleman and her iconic fringe in TV adverts claiming that she does indeed use the shampoo. Head and Shoulders has a huge range of shampoo, conditioners and 2-in-1 products, as well as a “pre-shampoo” cleanser. It was founded in 1961 and came about because John Parran, a chemical engineer and bacteriologist from the University of Tennessee wasn’t impressed with existing treatments for dandruff (which included egg oil and coal tar).
