This stuff is addicting. I am not a sadist by any means, but I think I should mention that this stuff almost hurts. It has a burning sensation, and I like it. I would think that the sensation might be an indication that this shampoo is not good for my hair, in fact I think it is drying it out. I don't use this shampoo for my hair, no I use it to burn my scalp, and I LIKE IT.
I love this when I need a minty wake-up call!! It perks me right up in the shower! My hair loves it! The tingle is fantastic! I use both the shampoo and conditioner. I knew this was a keeper so I bought the gallon size bottles.
i love this shampoo! it's the only shampoo i use! lol i've tried many other shampoos! but i always go back to this shampoo. with a very nice minty/tea tree scent...it's nice! doesn't dry my hair, and it's definately worth the extra price for shampoos (around $25CDN for a medium sized bottle)
Works okay for hair dandruff, smells good, but you get sick of it after awhile. I bought a huge bottle of shampoo and conditioner, and threw them out, because I was sick of it after awhile. It's just an average shampoo and conditioner, with a nice smell is all. Nothing special.
This stuff is ok. I bought it during the summer/fall season change period. It worked well at first then got complacent and I got more flakes! That's when I decided to use Nizoral in conjuction with this, using Nizoral every 2 or 3 days. That has worked but I'm not sure if its the Nizoral or the Tea Tree that is working.
This isn't a general use shampoo for most folks, I wouldn't think. My stylist recommended it to me when some flakes cropped up during the winter (all that dry heated indoor air). In got rid of them in one shampoo, so I was suitably impressed. Now if I notice any flaking from dry conditions I just shampoo with the Tea Tree and they are gone. Excellent stuff! I love the smell - sharp and fresh. It also makes a tingly body shampoo when you need a real eye-opener in the morning. It's a shower staple for me.
Personally, I love the tea tree fragrance, but not everyone likes tea tree. If you like a clean, almost medicinal scent this is for you. If you prefer flowery or fruity look elsewhere.
The tingling action is great - my boyfriend tried this once, grumbling about having to use "girl shampoo" and now he is hooked. :) He bought me a second bottle. :)
I would say this is a little too harsh for someone with fine, thin hair to use daily. Ironically if I use this 2 washings in a row I actually notice flakes - this is ironic b/c tea tree is supposed to be a dandruff fighting ingredient and I normally do not have flakes. I don't use many finishing products, so I only need this to clarify once every week or two.
Major rave for Paul Mitchell's Tea tree shampoo. I bought it to battle my flaky/oily scalp and it worked in one shampoo. All my flakes are gone and my scalp feels fresh and invigorated. Best of all, it did not dry out the rest of my hair. My long hair is now shiny and moist, but not greasy or flaky! Perfect.
- like most shampoos, this did a good job but quickly devolved into an average shampoo the more i used it. i found if i used it several times in succession, my hair would start to feel heavy and coarse. i have switched to Paulas Choice shampoo for the flake problem and find it does a better job than Paul Mitchell. continued >>
I use the Tea Tree Shampoo when my hair feels like it has some product build-up, or my scalp feels a bit more oily than usual. I love the tingling sensation and after shampooing, my hair and scalp feel clean and refreshed. This shampoo is also gentle enough for color-treated hair, and doesn't wash out my cellophane.
Out of this line I have only tried the Tea Tree Oil Shampoo. It is supposed to be for dandruff but it didnt do anything at all for my scalp. The scent is a minty fresh scent that gives your scalp a tingly feeling but it isnt really an appealing scent. I would not get this again.
