Recently, I used a clarifying shampoo and left my hair with huge flakes. Considering I have brunette hair, this was not attractive and quite embarrassing! I saw the positive recs for Nizoral but it really didn't help with my flaking situation. I'm thinking the flaking probably just major product build up (from a new leave-in I was trying) and not dandruff. I think I prefer Aveda's Rosemary&Mint shampoo and conditioner in terms of fragrance, too.
Didn't work on me, but I have psorasis, so maybe if you just have dandruff. Not as bad as the tar laden stuff I've tried in the past, this seems unharsh.
I got this after reviewing the reviews here. Thanks, guys! This is the ONLY shampoo to ever get rid of my flakies. I used it for a few weeks straight, and now only occasionally, and it is wonderful. Every bit as worth as the price, and then some!!
I bought a small bottle of this at walmart for 7.00 it worked & doesn't smell bad like most dandruff shampoo. I pretty much like the smell. If you have dandruff give it a try. UPDATE..this is just not workig for me anymore so i had to take a couple lippies away:( neutrogena t-sal is works so much better.
There are hardly words to describe how amazing this product is. I know that sounds kind of sappy - but I have struggled with a dry, itchy, flakey scalp for about 20 years and this is the first and only thing that has ever helped! Amazing! Itch was gone after 1st use. After a few weeks of using as directed, the flakes are 95% gone. Nothing compares. I tried tea tree oil, jojoba oil, many AD shampoos, and got "zero" results until Nizoral. HG!
My dermatologist recommended this for my itchy scalp and it does an excellent job. I've also read it can help to thicken hair follicles. I can't say one way or another on that, but it does give it an edge over the competition, don't you think?
This product REALLY works! I use it a few times a month to help out my scalp. (in winter is helps dry winter scalp...and in summer it helps sun scalp too!)
It is more expensive than the other "brands", but worth every cent. My hair and head always feels rejuvenated after shampooing. It would not be good as an every day shampoo, especially for color treated hair...so be careful not to use it too often - directions on bottle work great.
I use this stuff a couple times a week, mostly in the winter, and it really controlls my styling-product fried scalp mess.
The smell isn't great, and the price isn't great ($9 for a little bitty bottle!!), but it does work.
Wow! Thank you to those who reviewed this. It has made a major difference. For the first time in a lot of years I don't have to worry about dandruff and I can wear black. My scalp isn't itchy and it actually leaves my hair looking nice. Thank you! Thank you!
This does work, and it leaves hair soft, and untangled. It is a bit pricey though, but it's worth it. My husband likes it, too.
