This is overwhelming at the start, certainly; the smell of burning wood will take over your bathroom, and if you have an aversion to the scent of wood and smoke, I won't be able to convince you to use this, no matter how much I'll rave about the results. As for me, I happen to like the smell of firewood, although, admittedly, this stuff is insanely potent, and I really wondered if past reviewers were right - would the scent every die away?
Turns out, they were right, and they were even more correct about the incredible results this shampoo provided. At the turn of every season, I seem to suffer from those dreaded flakes, especially at my hairline. I've used several different anti-dandruff shampoos, the best of which was Nizoral, but I never found it cost-efficient. It also smelled medicinal, which, believe it or not, I find worse than the campfire scent of Soak N Float.
Give this stuff time, and the smell will die down. It won't be so strong, and believe me, it doesn't linger in the hair, especially if used with a conditioner (which is necessary). This fact has been supported by my family, who all have supersonic smelling abilities - they all agree. After I rinse this out and blowdry my hair, my locks are left super silky, shiny, bouncy, and best of all, flake-free. After consistent use (after about a week), my problem is completely gone. One puck lasts a long time, too, and I use this daily. It also lathers like a dream. I'll keep using this as long as Lush keeps making it.
