the cap was hard to pop off.. made my scalp/hairline BREAK OUT? like a rashy blistery like mess. i am extremely disappointed in this product.
Eh was nothing special and it has a certain ingredient that i dont like so i wont be repurchasing.
I try and buy organic natural products as often as possible, but I was really disappointed by this shampoo. It took way too much of the stuff on my head to even obtain a shampoo-like texture and after I rinsed, my scalp got extremely irritated. I've used pure tea tree oil on my skin before and not had any weird allergic reaction, but with this shampoo my hairline got red and my scalp felt burnt.
Pleasant smell, very effective for keeping dandruff at bay. Leaves hair feeling very clean, but a bit dry. Must shampoo twice in one shower for best effect. I would recommend either NOT using this as a daily shampoo, or avoiding blow-drying / flat ironing your hair when using this product. Definitely try to use lukewarm or cool water when washing your hair with this. Otherwise is a great product. They ran out of this at the store one day, and I tried the Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Threat shampoo, and LOVED it - left my hair shiny and healthier looking. So if you're in the market for a dandruff shampoo, I wholeheartedly recommend trying Giovanni's version.
I cannot comment on how this works as an everyday shampoo - I only use it once every 2 weeks as a clarifying shampoo, and for that it works superbly! It gets out all product build-up, and leaves my hair very shiny and manageable. I love the smell and the quality ingredients. BUT, I do think that it would be drying to use every day.
I have dry, flaky scalp that itches after the 2nd day after washing. I also have coarse, dry Asian hair, non-coloured.
I really like this shampoo; the itch doesn't come on until day 4 after washing and the dry scalp seems to be better. (I was using Head and Shoulders and that just made the flakes keep coming). The formula's a bit weird at first, because it doesn't lather (no SLS) and feels a bit like slime out of the bottle. A tip is to tilt your head and hair forward and apply using your fingertips, going straight to the scalp. I do have to use quite a lot on my thick (but chin-length) hair. Leave on for 5 or more minutes.
-seems to treat the scalp and relieves itching for much longer
-smell is light tea-tree scent
-doesn't strip hair of natural oils. My hair isn't that greasy, so oily types may find it doesn't "clean" well enough
-have to use lots of product to make it feel like you've washed your hair and scalp properly
I love this shampoo, though I rated it higher on price because it's $10 CAD and you need to use quite a bit of it.
Love it! My hair is heavily highlighted and slighly dry yet this is amazing at cleaning my scalp w/o stripping my ends. I only shampoo twice a week, concentrating on the scalp and that may be the trick for me w/ this shampoo. I also use a super rich conditioner. Other shampoos give me the greasy scalp in a day, not this one. Also Jason does not test on animals. Highly recommend!
I have a very oily scalp and mild dandruff problems. This shampoo does very well to control the oils and any itches associated with dandruff. The smell is pleasant if you like the tea tree oil scent. The shampoo requires that shampoo twice. I found that it is important do it twice as the first wash results in no lather at all. The second wash is better and the shampoo bubbles nicely. I would not recommend this to anyone who has dry hair, colored hair or permed hair as it may be overly drying. Overall this is not a terrible shampoo, but it is not a favorite either.
I have seborrhic dermatitis and have tried several different shampoos over the years. This is the first shampoo that has actual worked!! I use it daily only lathering my head once in the shower. I don't color my hair, so I don't need to worry about the tea tree oil fading my hair color. It leaves my hair soft and shiny too. I also have very thick wavy dark brown hair. If that helps anyone. I'm very surprised at how well it works . Before trying this shampoo,I had been using Paul Mitchells tea tree oil. Which is more expensive,but wasn't doing the job. I recommend at least giving it a try if you have a scalp like mine.
I'm a fan of Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Shampoo, but I found this on sale for $2 at Foodlion (closeout price) so I thought I give it a try.
It didn't give me that cool tingly effect that I was hoping to get (Paul Mitchell line does). However, it deeply cleansed my scalp and took care of my oily scalp.
Because it cleanses so deeply, I do follow this product up with a deep hydrating conditioner. I feel like the conditioner soaks up better after using this shampoo.
As with any shampoo that contains Tea Tree oil, it does dry out your hair and fade out your hair color faster, so I probably will only use it once or twice a week. continued >>
