I tried this product out because I have dermatitis on part of my scalp and nothing seemed to help it. At first, I hated the smell of this, it made me want to barf. But after I got used to it, it didn't bother me at all. It has helped my dermatitis a lot. I use it in conjunction with a medicated shampoo from the doctor. What I like is that it doesn't strip my hair of too many natural oils but it cleans really well still. I've been using it in the summer and leaving my hair to air dry and it looks nice when I use this shampoo.
This shampoo gives me soft and fluffy, clean hair. I still need a conditioner though. The shampoo is soothing to the scalp. I don't get dandruff and maybe it's because I rotate this shampoo among my other favs. I find it does help if you have an itchy scalp. The ginger is good for your hair.
I don't mind the smell at all... this product didn't just take care of flakes but also stopped my hair from falling. Since the first wash I could notice the difference, and it left my hair clean, soft and shiny, even without using a conditioner.
Love it. this is the only shampoo that took care my my dandruff. smell is not the best, but it washes away quickly so no problem. no more itchiness too!!
I was really suffering with big flakes and after reading reviews here, decided to purchase this shampoo. All I can say is WOW! it worked immediately! Thank goodness. Sure, its not that best shampoo in the world, but if you have flakes and are willing to splash out a bit more than drugstore prices - buy this - its great.
This isn't my favorite shampoo, only because it doesn't seem to leave my hair quite as soft or clean as others out there, but WOAH does it smell amazing. It smells just like candied ginger slices or ginger beer - spicy, sweet, and crisp. Unfortunately, the smell doesn't linger, but it's great while you're in the shower. I'm hoping the honey shampoo will perform better though - this stuff just doesn't clean my scalp and leave my hair soft like I'm used to. Maybe it's just too mild.
Wow, I am shocked. This really got rid of the big flakes I've been having due to dry, overprocessed hair. With the first use, the flakes were gone! Although the price isn't as cheap as drug store brands, it is certainbly worth it - especially if you can get them on a Buy One Get One kind of deal like the previous reviewer and I did. The only thing I don't like about this are the smell and the fact that I don't think it's good for your hair other than at the roots to get rid of the dandruff. I can definitley get over the smell though because this really does the job and I am finally happy!
TBS was having a buy one get one 1/2 on their shampoos so I decided to try out their new ginger shampoo.
Overall, the scent is not too bad- it reminds me of ginger candies. It is moisturizing and makes my hair healthy and shiny.
If you purchase it at the shop, do ask for a pump- it's free
I don't have dandruff but I wanted an efficient and gentle (and clear) shampoo that is easier to get hold of than Aubrey Organics - so I bought this from my local Body Shop. I really like it. It doesn't do anything amazing - it just does a good job and I like the clean, fresh smell. It does what it's supposed to, it cleans my hair and scalp gently. The fact that I'm on my third bottle of it says a lot!! Sometimes, I add a drop of jojoba oil to it for one one wash, or a sprinkling of baking soda, or a drop of essential oil. They all work well. NB: I vary this with other shampoos - currently alternate weeks with this and Tommyguns Pomegranate & Orange Flower Shampoo.
I have bought this product over and over again because my scalp is so sensitive :( My mum has the same problem, and she LOVES this shampoo. We don't have dandruff though, just really really sensitive scalps. Sometimes my scalps even bleeds after washing with a harsh shampoo, it's awful!
It calms and soothes the scalp (and helps it heal in my case). It does dry my hair out if I blow dry it. I do recommend the Olive Glossing Shampoo if you find this one too drying, it's also really good to the scalp, but it doesn't leave a greasy film.
But what I really do love about this shampoo is that there are no silicones in it, so it's a fabulous cleansing shampoo. It really does leave the hair squeaky clean.
I also think it's super cheap, but maybe that's because I'm used to Kerastase lol
