I've been coloring my hair for many many years, and have had to cope with a dry, itchy, and flaky scalp that sometimes got so irritated it bled in little patches, because my scalp was so itchy I picked it until it bled.

I was actually losing a significant amount of hair volume because I picked my scalp until the hair broke off, and I wore hats all the time to cover up my broken hair and scabby scalp. Was truly awful!

Since finding this product about a year ago, my scalp has significantly healed. The itching is greatly lessened, I no longer pick my scalp, and my hair is actually starting to look nice again.

I apply twice. The first application doesn't really lather so I work it into my scalp with little water. I leave that on for 5 minutes, then rinse and apply again. The second application lathers up beautifully. I leave that for a few minutes, then rinse and condition with Neutrogena conditioner.

I only wash my hair once a week, but I am sure if I were to use the product as recommended, my scalp would be 100% healed. As is, it is much, much better even with infrequent washing.

I also love the fact that my expensive blond highlights don't turn brassy or orange with this shampoo and the odor is fairly neutral.

If you suffer from a dry, flaky, itchy scalp due to coloring your hair, try this product. For me it is no less than a "Hair Saver" and I will always use it.

As long as you use it, all the dandruff and other scalp impurities disappear, but you have to use it regularly. Otherwise, after some time, the problems start again. Another thing is that the bottle is too small for the price, and you have to use a generous amount to lather. The smell is awful by the way..

This started to get rid of my husbands dandruff after one use. Also it does not smell strong like it did when we tried it years ago.

      This did not work for me. An extra strength dandruff shampoo does about the same thing at half the price. I guess my mistake was that this is primarily used for scalp build up control,which is not my problem. I need dandruff control.

      Don't vomit but we all, like the entire community including the dogs, got fungal infections in our scalps after the hurricane. I consider it lucky this is all we got from the water. This stuff saved us all.

          I have only used this product a couple times so I cannot offer a real good review yet. It lathers well and I am hoping that it controls my scaling due to psoriasis of the scalp. I will update my review after using this product a month but so far so good. I only gave it 4 stars because do not know at this time if it will work on the scale buildup but as for a shampoo lathering and cleaning hair, it does great and I do not have flakes.

                I have only mild scalp issues, mostly small bumps around the hairline. Expected a great, deep clean from this product. Got hair that felt dried out, yet oddly sticky even while still wet and such a huge mass of tangles, I had to use half a bottle of expensive detangler (a salon brand) just to get a comb through it. I do have fine, thin hair and maybe this product is just too much for me. I will not even use the rest of the bottle, which is a shame because it also is not cheap.

                      This works great on my face as an acne wash for moderate to severe acne. It has 3 percent salicylic acid as opposed to the 2 percent in most acne washes, it works great on body acne too. I like that it doesn't have added orange or blue coloring like many acne washes. If you can withstand an acne wash with 2 percent salicylic acid, artificial color and fragrance then this would probably work even better without irritation because it doesn't have the added fragrance or color. I would only use it once a day for that purpose because again it has 3 percent of the active ingredient. As for the intended use as a shampoo, my son uses it for moderate dandruff and it works well.

                            I have a Candida overgrowth which has caused dandruff. This really helps to keep my itching to a minimum with my sugar free, gluten free and dairy free diet. I used to get flakes with the itching, but that is now completely gone since beginning this product. I used MANY other (almost all) name brand dandruff shampoos and this is the ONLY one that got rid of my flakes. I do still get slightly itchy if I eat something that I shouldn't, but based on past experience, I think the itching would be much worse without this product.
