I occasionally use H & S for dandruff but am a bit worried that it may be a bit rough on the scalp.
Any comments/ experiences?

Thanks. I'm alternating between Aloe Vera shampoo and conditioner and the JASON Thin to Thick products at the moment actually. Not bad.

I heard head and shoulders makes your hair fall out and it should not be used.

KM:

Many people complain that Head & Shoulders shampoo makes the scalp extremely dry. In the book Hair Loss Prevention by Peters, Stuss, and Waddell are these sentence:
Anti-dandruff shampoos are among the most dangerous of all hair care products, the other two being aerosol hair spray and styling mouse. Dandruff shampoos use toxic medications to prevent the scalp from peeling.

If you'll look on the label you'll see ammonium xylenesulfonate in the ingredients list. Even though only a small amount is used in Head & Shoulders, this is the chemical that causes dryness. Head & Shoulders does not make your hair fall out though.
