Product Description


Hydrosil Dry Scalp Shampoo is a naturally derived hypoallergenic treatment shampoo containing a vine extract from the Cardiospermum plant.

Cardiospermum has been studied in several published trials for its effects in calming down itching and irritation in very dry and eczema-prone skin.

Honey is also used to reduced inflammation and calm and cleanse the scalp.

Stopping the itch is the first crucial step in breaking the itch-scratch cycle in eczema-prone skin that too often leads to inflamed and infected skin which then later dries and flakes. 

Dry Scalp Shampoo has been developed by one of the UK’s leading hair scientists.

It’s designed to reduce inflammation on the scalp and leaves hair feeling clean and soft and scalp calm and cleansed.

Regular use will help reduce itching and flaking from scalp dryness.

Dry Scalp Shampoo is FREE from parabens, perfumes, SLS and MI and is made from naturally active ingredients that have been clinically tested for highly sensitive, itchy and dry scalps.

Product FAQs


Product FAQs

Ask a Question

  • I have a really dry scalp with dandruff and it itches. Nothing the doctor or chemist has recommended has worked. Can you suggest anything?

    You may be having problems because you are using anti-dandruff shampoos which contain anti-fungal agents.

    Dandruff is normally either caused by dry skin/eczema or fungus. Most OTC products are only for treating fungal dandruff and contain harsh anti-fungal chemicals.

    But, according to leading London trichologist Tony Maleedy, who developed the our Dry Scalp Shampoo & Conditioner and carried out the university trial, dandruff caused by dry skin, eczema or dermatitis can actually be made worse by anti-fungal agents in normal anti-dandruff shampoos.

    In addition foaming agents used in anti-dandruff shampoos such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), have been shown in studies to cause inflammation to already highly sensitive dry scalps

    Most OTC anti-dandruff shampoos also have a very high Ph to help kill the dandruff fungus, but this high Ph is too harsh for sufferers of dry scalp dandruff and can actually make the flaking worse.

    So try our Dry Scalp shampoo & conditioner and I hope you will see some improvement.

  • Do Skin Shop shampoos and conditioner fade coloured hair?

    Our Shampoos and Conditioners are designed to be gentle and not to strip the hair. They will not fade coloured hair.

    However, we would advice against highlights containing bleach which will aggravate any scalp condition. I would recommend asking your hair dresser for non bleach alternatives.

  • Does it smell awful? sounds a silly question but all the other scalp shampoos I've had stink!

    Many scalp shampoos smell because they use coal tar to help the scalp. We use juniper oil. It doesn't smell great, but it smells much better than the coal tar shampoos. Honestly!

    The shampoo was designed to leave your hair with same feeling as a salon standard shampoo. It actually leaves the hair feeling great and your hair should be left with a neutral smell. Also if used with the conditioner the hair is left smelling very good and the two products are good to use together.

    We try and balance ease and enjoyment of use with effectiveness. I feel we have got it just right with this shampoo.

  • What colour is the dry scalp shampoo and does it have an odour?
    The Dry Scalp Shampoo is a clean clear colour with the slightest hint of amber which is caused by the Cardiospermum, an active plant ingredient inside the shampoo. The shampoo does not have any artificial fragrances added and smells quite neutral with a slight hint of a plant smell. Actually very difficult to describe but really very nice.

  • How did you pick the ingredients for the Shampoo and Conditioner and will they make psoriasis of the scalp worse?

    The products were designed from the ground up to avoid irritation and aggravation of scalps prone to psoriasis. Every ingredient was chosen by the UKs leading hair care scientist with your scalp problem in mind. We also asked him to leave the hair with a salon standard finish and to minimise the use of chemicals and potential irritants. We are very proud of the finished product and many customers have told us that it is has helped them enormously.

    I really recommend using it with the conditioner. The whole hair care pack represents the best value and the best effect.

  • I suffer from dry scalp but have greasy hair. Does the Dry Scalp Shampoo tend to make hair more greasy?

    That is an unusual combination. Usually the oiliness from your scalp should prevent dryness. I suspect that the dryness is actually either a chemical intolerance in which case the dry scalp shampoo should be excellent or a yeast or fungus based infection of your scalp. In which case the Oregon shampoo would be better as it contains an anti-dandruff ingredient.

    Both are moisturising and are not designed for greasy hair but more aimed at dry hair.

    In this instance, I would recommend asking a doctor to look at your scalp and check the cause of the dryness.

  • I have used all the shampoos and creams to no avail ie keatonazol shampoo, daktacort cream for skin irritation around nose area and forehead. I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I'm contemplating giving your shampoo & cream a go what do think?

    Our Dry Scalp Shampoo is an excellent moisturising shampoo designed to leave your hair and scalp feeling great while causing no irritation to dry skin disorders, such as eczema or dermatitis. It is meant to be used daily.

    Our Dry Eye Cream is designed for daily use on the eyelids and around the eye. However, our understanding of seborrheic bletheritis is that it is best treated with a routine of cleaning and warm compresses.

  • I have afro hair, which shampoo is best form me?

    We have shampoos for psoriasis prone scalp and for dry scalps.

    The dry scalp shampoo is designed to intensively moisterise without irritation. It is suitable for all hair types except greasy hair.

    The Oregon Shampoo is designed again for dry scalps but for scalps which are also prone to psoriasis of the scalp. Again it is fine for all hair types except greasy hair, as it is again moisturising.

    Our conditioner is great with both shampoos.

  • i have recently been losing my hair at the front and going to the doctor they have said i have a dry scalp and reccommended using anti dandruff shampoo which is for dry scalps and hair, also i needed to wait for around 2-3 months to see if it works but my
    Anti-Dandruff shampoos are great if you suffer from a fungal problem of the scalp. However, if you don't have fungal related dandruff they can actually make the problem worse by futher drying the scalp. Our Dry Scalp Shampoo moisturises without the use of anti fungal agents.
