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.

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..

        Comments about Neutrogena T/Sal Therapeutic Shampoo, Scalp Build-up Control, 4.5 fl oz:

        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.

          Comments about Neutrogena T/Sal Therapeutic Shampoo, Scalp Build-up Control, 4.5 fl oz:

          I am sure I've tried 20-30 different shampoos for my problem. None of them worked. None of them contained salicylic acid and none of the directions were so clear, making perfect logical sense. This product does continue to work even after rinsing shampoo out well. The salicylic acid continues to break down crusty flakes on scalp even though you aren't aware of it. You will know this after 2-3 washings. I would suggest using every three days to a week and allowing the ingredients to work for best results. It doesn't work FAST but it does work! Don't give up on this without following directions and giving it a few weeks to began to see and KNOW the results. Of course, see your dermatologist if this doesn't solve your problem because you may have another condition involved but at least give this product time first because in most cases I believe you'll find genuine relief. This is a safe shampoo & good shampoo to use for anyone except infants & small children.

            The only product that worked well on my flaky itchy scalp and left behind a clean and happy scalp with beautfiful hair.
            My husband uses it too and he has baby fine hair, way different from my curly locks.
            I also really like that its free of alcohol, fragrance, and preservative.

                  Since my scalp is prone to dandruff and itchy bumps I rotate the four shampoos. T-Sal is the only one that leaves my hair feeling sticky. The Listerine is the only thing I have found (including a prescription) that seems to be helping.

                    I had to go see my dermatologist for a breakout on my forehead. Since I was applying hair oils to moisturize my hair, there was a skin breakout on my forehead & temples. Doctor told me to use T/Sal to clear my skin. Neutrogena T/Sal cleared up my skin immediately. Will reuse over & over whenever I have scalp buildup.

                    The reason why I took 1 star off is because the price is high and the bottle is very small. However, I noticed a big difference in my scalp from the very first use. I have curly, dry hair so I normally only shampoo once a week. However, I think that this is going to require me to shampoo twice a week. I would not shampoo every day unless you have incredibly oily hair. The other down side is that it can strip out your color if you dye your hair. However, I would much rather dye a little more often than have a disgusting scalp, so I will keep using this.

                    I started having seborrheic dermatitis from a medication I take, and I was going crazy because it was so awful. My scalp became painful and disgusting, breaking out in pimples and then crusting and scabbing would set in. Not only was it gross, but then big flakes started showing up in my hair. Not attractive. This shampoo clears up your skin and the best part is that it is fragrance-free. I strongly recommend using a fragrance-free conditioner after this, and you will likely have to deep condition once or twice a week as well to offset the dryness.
