Individual Product Decisions: Head & Shoulders Head & Shoulders is one of the oldest shampoo companies boasting one of the oldest dandruff shampoos, and has remained a leader in hair care since the company’s inception. Individual Product Decisions of Head & Shoulders includes the following: 1-Head & Shoulder’s Product Attributes a-Quality: The quality level of the head &shoulder is very good because they are very well formulated and have helped people with dandruff stay flake-free for many years. And now with new Fresh Scent Technology is a breakthrough anti-dandruff shampoo that provides scalp relief and beautiful, flake-free* hair along with a great scent, especially in the shower. As a leader in the antidandruff category for over 50 years, Head & Shoulders has developed an innovative approach to enhance the shower experience: combining proprietary scalp technology and proven hair benefits with a water-activated fragrance boost. After reading many review about Head & Shoulders, I found out that people love using this shampoo for daily use and they see it as High Quality Anti- Dandruff Shampoo for long-lasting protection with extra moisturizers for smooth and silky hair. Head & Shoulders has a superior functioning product, it mainly focuses on solving dandruff problem in a high quality. It has a special ingredient- Zinc carbonate. Head & Shoulders is the only dandruff shampoo that contains zinc carbonate and helps keep the dandruff-fighting ingredient in its most effective form (, 2019)Thus, Head & Shoulders has rather strong competitiveness in the market b-Features  It is available in different flavors  Cleanliness & remove dandruff  Coolness & freshness  Affordable prices  Good fragrance as a medicated shampoo  Gives you soft & beautiful hair 1 c-Product Design Simple | practical | realistic Design uses “relevant shape trends, that leverage the brand’s graphic shape equities providing robust, future ready, brand recognition with ‘no trade off’ through integrated graphic and shape equity with SMOT signaled through FMOT” Head & shoulders bottle is unique, challenging to manufacture and has created a powerful new visual equity for the head & shoulders brand. Its visual language of pure ellipse and linear juxtaposed to represent duality are established here for the future Colour Blues & neutral colours, black, grey, silver Shape Consistency of position of silver arcs and variant shape across all ‘clean’ variants. Clean shapes, hard edges Imagery Imagery within shape to be non-literal representation of “clean”. no bubbles, spl Graphics 360° The new graphics create a motivating 360° graphic link between shampoo and conditioner pairs. This is achieved by the careful interplay between the ellipses on both bottle and tottle. The end result is a differentiated, but linked, pair. Head & Shoulders has a 360° approach to dandruff to give you “the liberating feeling of dandruff free beautiful hair” • Where shampoo and conditioner appear together they form a 360° graphic whole • this is achieved by the careful off setting of ovals • The shape and angle of these ovals should be kept as close to the original design as possible. however where the graphics are applied to formats the ovals can be redrawn, following the same principle of off-setting of ovals. • Any redrawing of oval proportions will require re-illustration of the variant communication. 2 2-Branding a-Brand Name: The brand name “Head & Shoulders” for the target customer is good because the target customer of this product is the young generation and according to this targeting the brand name is very well. b-Positioning H&S is positioned as anti-dandruff product which clear flakes with one wash. As the market leader it has successfully acquired the niche market of anti-dandruff segment.

Idea screening: They have the different ideas that they start the flavor as menthol,anti dandruff with silky black and for long hair.

As the sales were very low for Ariel due to its high price, P&G decided to stretch down with new products penetrating the lower segment, like Ariel green alternate, Ariel super soaker.

For this, they have maintained a quality level of the products and kept the prices reasonable.
