                I have psoriasis on my scalp and I don't use the medical grade stuff because I am a red head and am already sunburn prone. I have tried many different shampoos over the years and so far it seems to be working. I was having a really bad flair up with full on scales and red patches. It calmed my scalp after the first use and I have used it 2 more times since. We'll see how it goes.

                My scalp gets quite dry around this time of year. Someone recommended this product to me. After the first use, my hair was considerably less itchy/dry. I highly, highly recommend this product if you have a few extra dollars to spend on shampoo.

                  I never had dry and itchy scalp! It was getting to a point where I couldnt stand it anymore! Kind of embarrassing. :-/ So since head and shoulders wasnt doing the trick anymore I tried this product and I'm so glad I did!! It works instantly!! I'm so happy! Not only did the flakes go away but my hair felt and looked cleaner, my scalp looked normal! AND the itch was GONE! I would buy this product again!!!!!!!!

                    • Q:

                      I'm wondering if this shampoo is safe for hair that has been keratin-treated. I'm assuming no, since there is sulfate listed in the ingredients, but I just want to make sure.

                      Does this product work for thinning hair? How does it compare to Nioxin 6. Do I need to use 3 products or can I get results with the use of 1 product? I do not have dandruff but I have thinning hair.

                        The Scalp Recovery Cleanser is formulated for dry, itchy scalp. We suggest to use one of the Nioxin Systems, as they are designed for thinning hair and to keep the scalp environment healthy to promote new hair growth.
