    I have tried every shampoo on the planet earth, every ointment, every nutrient, every homeopathic remedy,cortisone 10, cooler water temperatures. no shampooing at all,not using latex hairbrushes,hypo allergenic shampoos, plant shampoos, no styling products at all and als, I tried this. It is the equivalent of a wonder drug. All you do is squeeze a little into the areas of scalp bothering you and lightly massage to touch the affected are and you are done. It evaporates leaving it undetectable. And you have relief. It has a strong cooling sensation when first squeezed in,then that feeling leaves after about 10 minutes.I added a smaller amount because some of the irritation had disappeared. I had relief for 6 hours. I put a little bit more on before bed and now it is morning and I am ready to be almost done with it. All that relief in 24 Hours. It only touches your scalp so the strands of actual hair remain undried out and you can use your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Cannot say enough. Just remember it takes a very small amount which is why the nozzle opening is just a pinprick. don't put any other product like a conditioner on your scalp now. Condition the hair, but not the scalp. This product is "conditioning" your scalp. Don't rinse product away until your next shmapooo, the after shampooing and light towel dry sqeeze a little on and style hair as usual. You will be amazed at the comfort!

    I wanted to try this product based on other reviews I have read, as I have been experiencing extreme scalp itching for going on 10 months now. I developed this situation from all of my hair falling out from my pregnancy, and the itch and discomfort will not go away. This was a great fix to get a couple hours of relief after applying, and I loved the cooling sensation. However, only applying twice a day did not do the trick for me, and the product disappeared fast (only lasting about a week with 2 applications a day). I'll keep looking!

      Comments about Scalpicin Maximum Strength Liquid Scalp Itch Treatment, 1.5 fl oz:

      I had a reaction to this product! Made my condition worse with the itching! Also had some breaking out--and I am going on 60!
      My guess is that it might be the tree tea oil that I reacted to. Looked up tea tree oil on the internet to see if I could have had a reaction to it and there are cases where people did have a reaction--some more severe than mine!

          It works best on my wet hair, then blow dry. If left to air-dry my scalp looks oily. It does what it's supposed to do.

          • On my scalp after color

          Comments about Scalpicin Maximum Strength Liquid Scalp Itch Treatment, 1.5 fl oz:

          I have my hair colored on a routine basis at a Salon. As I have become older, my scalp now reacts differently to the colorization process and becomes more swollen and irritated than it did when I was younger. With use of Scalpicin -Maximum Strength - following my colorization, the irritation, swelling, itching and scratching is greatly reduced. It is easily applied and I use it on my scalp several times per day until it is back to "normal". It heals! It is a terrific product and Drugstore.com is about the only place I have been able to find it after it disappeared off the shelves of the "usual" drugstores.

          Comments about Scalpicin Maximum Strength Liquid Scalp Itch Treatment, 1.5 fl oz:

          I've used this daily for 10+ years and it works better than prescription products I've had. I have psoriasis and I've found that daily use, after I shower keeps the itchy, dry shin on my scalp at bay. I never go without this product and always keep 2-3 bottles on hand. It drys quickly and can be used sparingly. It does not leave any noticeable residue or greasy feeling in my hair. My only complaint is the price. It is a spendy product, but for me it works. I'd rather spend the money than have an itchy-flakey head.
