Just as winter is coming and going, my husband and I both get horribly itchy dandruff from the weather changes. Every single time this happens I go buy this stuff and it immediately starts making a difference. If its really bad it may take a few washes, but it does work wonderfully and gives relief. One time though I didn't take off my rings and the shampoo got caught underneath it and actually burned the skin under my ring, I guess thats how strong it is! But now I take my rings off before I use it and don't have any problems. Its never burned my scalp though. I think it just burned my finger because it was trapped under my ring for so long.
I bought this after my ordindary dandruff shampoo wasn't working well enough. Cleared up itchy scalp almost instantly. but, like others, I find the smell a bit offputting but it works!!
I am using the extra strenght shampoo. The 2% really burned my scalp...must have different ingredients. As much as I hate using this, it has saved my scalp. I get a lot of sebum buildup on my scalp which is very itchy, and looks gross. I had tried every other product I could find, even prescriptions, and this is the only thing that has helped. I do need to use this twice a week, leaving it on for about 10 mins. I have had no trouble since. Will always repurchase.
If it was not for this product I would be walking around itching my head all day. I use this even though I spend a FORTUNE having my hair colored. I can not live without this product. I do hope they come out with one for color treated hair.
I have mild eczema on my scalp (along with other parts of my body) and I found that this stuff works pretty well. I have used head and shoulders b4, but that is mostly for dandruff. I use it about once a week and the itching and flakes are gone. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it smells soooo strong! I guess it has to since it's medicated. Just don't use it b4 going on a date! It was a bit pricey, but it will last awhile.
T-Gel is the only shampoo (including the expensive prescriptions) that cured my mild case of psoriasis.
It doesn't smell super nice, but if you rinse thoroughly, you (and others) won't smell it after 1 -2 times.
This is a treatment shampoo, not meant to be luxurious in any way. I'm sure if they tried to cover up the tar smell it would have to be a really obnoxious scent anyway. At least it works. Seems to work better than a prescription sample I got once. No dandruff, and relieves the itching.
Great product to remove occasional flakies and dandruff. Just use a 2 in 1 first then apply tgel to scalp only then follow with reg conditioner, smells awful when its wet, but once its dry its not so bad for what it does!
For some reason when I started using Pantene shampoo my scalp started itching like crazy. I have since stopped. I purchased this product and it took the itch away. It really works. I do however take issue with the offensive tar smell. It really smells like you are in a coal mine. Isnt there something they can do to mask the horrible odor? But cudos for working.
If you are dandruff prone and have itchy scalp this is all you will need. Massage in scalp leave on while you wash entire body and face then rinse off. Itchiness and dandruff solved plus hair has more body. If your hair on the dry side use their anti residue conditioner on hair ends only.
