I would like to address the doubting reviews with a possible explanation. A professional shampoo includes two washes-one to wash off the surface oil and dirt and one following to cleanse the scalp. If this product did not work, it may be that it was used for only a surface wash and never got to its intended destination. Personally, i use a good everyday shampoo and briefly wash my hair, avoiding my scalp, rinse, then apply the Dermarest shampoo to my scalp, massaging it thoroughly (NO FINGERNAILS) and let it sit for 5 minutes before rinse.

This shampoo has worked fabulously for my psoriasis when nothing else has, and that without damaging my already dry hair or smelling like burning paper pulp. The effect even lasts two days if i have shampooed properly, more if i take the time to daily apply a direct scalp treatment between shampoos. I highly recommend this to someone with a stubborn, scaly, itchy scalp problem.

Each psoriasis shampoo contains a different ingredient. Some people respond better to certain ingredients than others. This shampoo didn't work very well for me. It was able to keep my psoriasis from being super bad but I still had many itchy patches of flaking skin around my hairline. I would wash with my regular shampoo first to get rid of oils and then use this shampoo and leave in for 5 minutes.
I suppose it works for some but it isn't a cure all for everyone. I find that Selsun 2.5% works wonders for me. I had to stop using it while pregnant and breastfeeding so that's why I turned to Dermarest. I'll be happy when I can use Selsun again.

doesn't work for me

Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

Doesn't work for me. Maybe its only me. My scalp psoriasis is still pretty bad, dry and flaky and no improvement. It wasn't a bad shampoo but just doesn't seem to improve my psoriasis problem.

I do need to use a little bit of hair conditioner otherwise hair is pretty dry (even this is supposed to be shampoo plus conditioner).

    Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

    Have been using for about 8 months now & so far seems to help calm the psoriasis problem I have at the back of neck above hair line. It is not as severe but does not completely cure as cause is a fungus within body. But it does make my hair nice & controlled. I also use on my body & face & is great for keeping any problem skin away but when using on face be sure to use a nice moisture cream after. I recommend Cetaphil which is good on all types of skin.

      my scalp was dry and itchy which of course drives you crazy. had prescriptions and used over the counter products. nothing works as well as this. i went by others' reviews and happy i did. really like this product . it lathers well, does not "burn your scalp" like some products did. hair is soft and smells clean. i used it 2X week for 2 weeks and scalp is 100% better. amazing! (i have very sensitive skin and scalp which comes with age)

      Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

      Helps keep the scales of psoriasis from forming, washes away what's there and doesn't dry hair out. The conditioner in it is a real plus. Very pleased. So many of these products are much too harsh and many increase the problem. This one works for me.

      Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

      If you have dandruff caused by psoriasis, then it will aliviate the itch, but not totally eliminate it. It's not harsh on your hair, but I also use a medicated foam that dries it out.

          Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

          I find that this product is okay. For me. I only suffer from mild scalp psoriasis that flares up a couple of times a year, if that. I was recommended to try this product by my mother who has the same issue. She swears by it. For me, it did seem to soothe my scalp from discomfort but did not resolve the issue at hand. It also left my hair feeling very smooth which was surprising.

              I have plaque psoriasis and it works better than any other over the counter item I've found, except prescriptions from the dermatoligist. I did however find that [@] carries it cheaper.

                  I don't think this shampoo did much for me. I only have a slight case of psoriasis and I know everyone is unique, so I think I will try something different...I believe there is a tar shampoo rather than salycic acid.
