            I have battled dry scalp all winter long, and tried different drug store brands for dandruff/dry scalp. Nothing seemed to work that well. I even started leaving my conditioner on my scalp longer with no relief. I purchased this, and made sure to exfoliate my scalp very well before getting in the shower with a brush and comb. The smell isn't great, but it's bearable. I left the lather on for 5 minutes as instructed on the bottle, and after blow-drying my hair when I got out, the dandruff is not nearly as bad. It definitely is there if I'm scratching at it, but nowhere near as bad as it was. I will continue to use this a couple times a week until it's under control. Couldn't have asked for better results! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to the smell. It's a minty smell that I'm not super fond of, but my conditioner masks it once dry so not bad.

            I have tried many different types of anti-dandruff shampoos with varying results. Even though this has the same active ingredient as Head & Shoulders this product is far superior. It does require daily (or regular) use at first to be effective but once the dandruff is under control then you can reduce use as you see fit. I did find it a little drying, but thankfully you can use any conditioner you want without any adverse reactions. My scalp does not itch at all!

              It's awesome. I lather up and let it sit on my head while I'm washing everything else. Then I rinse off and rinse hair. I get very greasy hair in the summer so I use it every shower. In the winter, I combine it with a heavy conditioner. It will take your hair color out faster than normal shampoo but it's worth it to be dandruff and itch free. It also makes my hair super shiny!

                  I just moved to a drier climate, and I've been experiencing dry scalp, so I bought this to try to combat it. You're supposed to apply to wet hair/scalp, leave it for 5 minutes, lather, and rinse. I've done that each time, and I still have flakes even the day that I washed my hair.
                  Before this problem started happening, I could go 3-4 days without washing my hair. Now, I want to wash it everyday to keep the small flakes and dry scalp at bay.

                        I purchased this hoping that it would help with the scalp itch that has come with winter. I am very sensitive to smells so I researched several brands went to the store and choose the one that did not bother me. When washing my hair it lathered well making it easy to message my scalp. My hair felt striped when I rinsed it so, I put in a good moisturizer and left it on for 5 minutes before rinsing it out. That brought the soft feeling back to my hair. It worked, my scalp does not itch. I will only use once a week because of how drying it is.

                          What would be the best conditioner to use with this product for thin and dry hair with an extremely dry scalp?

                            A:

                            If your primary goal is to add volume, we would recommend Redken Body Full Light Conditioner. If moisture is your main concern, then we suggest Clear Moisture Conditioner to help replenish and rebalance hair's moisture level without weighing it down. You can also try Cerafill Defy Thickening Conditioner which contains SP-94 to nourish and promote a healthy scalp environment.
