Most Helpful Positive Review You should see my scalp!
Bought this after many many months of struggling with my seborrhic dermatitis. I have tried everything even prescriptions and nothing helped. I had large itchy, red, bleeding scales on my scalp down to my neck and on the backs of my ears. It was painful and embarrassing. I saw this while browsing for makeup and decided to give it a try. I prepped my hair by buying a tube of monistat and saturating my scalp with it overnight. I washed it out the next morning with TSAL shampoo ( helps remove the scaling, something i do weekly anyway with really no results ) The first time I used this (along with the scalp sync mint conditioner) my hair felt noticeably soft and shiny. After it dried I noticed that I didn't have nearly as many flakes and about 50% less scales. After 3 days now I am almost 100% flake and scale free. I also have less redness and irritation behind my ears. I plan on buying this again and creating a stock pile just in case this gets discontinued. please see the photos I've attached.
Most Helpful Critical Review This is fancy Head and Shoulders
You should know before you buy this that the active ingredient is the same as Head and Shoulders. Same ingredient, same potency. So if Head and Shoulders doesn't work for you, don't expect this to either. If H&S does work for you, you would probably be better off buying that at a fraction of the price. There is a benefit to this stuff, though. The active ingredient for itchy scalp and dandruff is the same, but the other ingredients are different enough that you could have very different results. If you like Biolage products (as I do), you might think it's worth it. For me, I bought it during a buy two, get one free Biolage sale and I was already planning on buying the other two things so it was a no-brainer to try this for my itchy scalp. It worked okay, but left my hair pretty limp, which I don't love. Would I buy it again? No, probably not.

Shelby from Iowa
After using this for 2 months I can conclusively say this was SIGNIFICANTLY less effective than a normal head and shoulders shampoo. When I don't use dandruff shampoo my scalp gets very dry and flaky in a hurry, and my scalp definitely reacted like this was a normal shampoo rather than an anti dandruff shampoo.
Since my dandruff is back in full force I will not even use the rest of the bottle, better off with head and shoulders for 1/4 the price.
Helped with dry scalp and dandruff
Ez from Ca

Love this shampoo
Naomipa9 from Melbourne,FL
Since using this product I haven't had any dandruff whatsoever! It's been a miracle worker for me!
Perfect for salon quality antidandruff shampoo
Aubrey from Texas
I have thin hair and over the winter my scalp dried out. This shampoo was perfect for taking away my dandruff and leaving my hair nourished with out over doing it. My hair gets oily easily and this helped maintain that.
Best shampoo EVER for dry scalp
Morgan from Rogers
I have SEVERE dandruff, that sometimes even progresses into adult cradle cap, and this shampoo has literally worked miracles for my scalp. I have been using it for about 2 weeks now, and haven't seen more than a flake or two every other day. It smells fantastic & leaves my hair shiny and clean, with a flake free scalp. Plus, the bigger bottle lasts you for a long long while. After 2 weeks, the bottle still feels pretty much full. This is a staple shampoo, and I highly recommend!!
Great for dermatitis
Carol from Long Island
Omg I use this shampoo twice to three time a week and is a miracle worker for my scalp condition. I will forever buy this product!!!
works a little, but not a solution
Dan from LV
I bought the 33 oz size for me and my partner to use. He has dry flakes from a dry scalp and I have dandruff from an over oily scalp, there's a difference. we both used up the whole bottle and now I am ready to review! He doesnt really pay attention to products so his review is simple, lol. He said it didn't help and I could see that it did t because he loves to wear black and he still had flakes on his clothes. He has normal short guy hair. Then their's me. I have hair down to my butt. Its fine and straight. The shaft and ends are dry but the scalp is insanely oily, always has been. However, this shampoo made the scalp oiler the first few uses. like right after I got out of the shower I could see and feel the oil on my crown. I wasn't a fan, but I did see a reduction of dandruff and it didn't make my ends dryer than normal which I was worried about. Since it left my scalp oiler, I had to wash more often. At some point though, it doesnt leave so much oil on my crown right after and it neutralizes. It was like my scalp adjusted to it. But after finishing the bottle I still have dandruff and I think I have more than I started with so it keeps it at bay but doesnt cure it at all. I heard a cure doesnt exist but that cant be right, can it? I didn't have dandruff until this past year, so it's odd to me that I cant be without it again. Anyways, doesnt work for dry flakes and kinda works for dandruff. But not the solution.
Yes...I will keep buying this!
Trigger from Springfield
Yahooo..it works..and smells nice!
worked but then...
j from oregon
i've been using this shampoo for several months & at first it worked great! there was a significant change in how bad my dandruff was. however not it seems to just make it worse. i literally scratch my scalp to the point where it bleeds. i still have a bottle and a half of this that im gonna have to either toss or giveaway :(
ASP from New Jersey
I've been using this for the past 4 years and I can tell the difference when I use a different shampoo. This is not drying, and I can get by with just using this without a conditioner. It leaves my hair clean, healthy and hydrated (I have fine long hair, prone to oil). It took care of my dandruff similar to head and shoulders, but I find the difference to be in the way it leaves my hair feeling softer and more conditioned—without compromising the length of time I can go before my next wash. I also prefer the scent as a bonus.
Definitely will purchase again!
Taychele from Bloomington, IN
I am very happy with my purchase of Biolage Scalp Sync. I struggle with scalp psoriasis and this shampoo really helps calm my scalp, and combats flaking and itching as well. It leaves my hair feeling clean and super soft. I will definitely purchase this shampoo again!
CABPatton from Daphne
This shampoo smells amazing and does exactly what it says without drying my hair out! I've had very little dandruff since I started using it. Will buy again!
Very good scalp treatment for dandruff
AH from Aurora, CO
Very good scalp treatment for dandruff, my mother said it was amazing how it cleared her scalp
Does not work
Molly8033 from Charlotte, NC
I have struggled with dandruff my entire life and have been searching for a shampoo that would clear it up. I have tried so many that don't end up working and this one is going on that list. (I have been trying it for over 6 months now) Not only does it not work, but holy cow it is anti-tear-free, just a little of this stuff by your eye will make them burn like crazy! 10/10 would NOT recommend.
No itch shampoo
Linda from Houston
I bought this shampoo hoping it will clear my scalp. I have itchy, flakey scalp due to using drug store products. On the first use it completely stopped the itching and flakes. I do have a dry scalp so will be alternating with another shampoo, will be going to Ulta this week to look for a hydrating shampoo. Will say that this shampoo does leave your hair feeling dry right after you wash it but once it's dry its manageable. There is no smell, I was hoping for a minty smell but no there is no smell to this shampoo so your hair pretty much doesn't have a clean smell to it ,its just clean if that makes sense. All in all ots a really good shampoo and my wash lasts a good 3 days before I start feeling a little itch coming. Don't forget to leave it in for at least 5 min before rinsing it out. The zinc in the shampoo needs to do its magic.
This is the only shampoo I use
RevBecky from McAlester, OK
I use this product daily along with scalp sync conditioner. It's the only product that controls my seborrheic dermatitis without drying out my hair. I've used it for about a year and a half and it's amazing!
Has eliminated dandruff but.....
Sleepypup from San Jacinto, Ca.
I have mixed feelings about this. Ok, so FIRST let me just say how great this product smells! Gives an invigorating and refreshing sensation. It did eliminate my dandruff rather quickly BUT my scalp is still super itchy, although I appreciate that it eliminated the "flaky" part of my issue, it's still no fun to feel itchy. I've used drug store shampoos that have better helped my dry scalp issue.
Teb1 from Philadelphia
I just purchased this because the product ingredient list did NOT list Dimethicone or Cocamidoproyl Belaine. It arrived today and these two ingredients, which I am allergic to, are listed next to each other in the list on the bottle
Fancy Head and Shoulders review was completely accurate.
Raquel from New Mexico
Overall this is a very good shampoo when it comes to your scalp. It did help me get rid of my flakes so it does what it says: improves your scalp's health. However, the Shampoo and Conditioner were really harsh (At least for me), it would leave my hair very dry and it completely changed my hair color to the point where you can see my black hair very close to my scalp, and the rest looks redish, like I totally dyed my hair when I did not. I had some red hairs before using this product, but they intensified a lot after a month or so.
I would recommend this product if your hair has no previous discoloration problems, because it really does work for dandruff.
Even my boyfriend uses it!
Mia from CALIFORNIA
I have well water and this strips the oily and dandruff hair. This kicks it all. My boyfriend uses it on his hair and beard and notices a huge difference in the skin and hair. We are hooked!!
Works for Psoriasis, Too
SaveThePrincess12345 from Charlotte, NC
I have psoriasis on my scalp, and it's been getting worse during recent months. (Thanks, stress and change of seasons.) I use this regularly (and more frequently when things get bad), and it works. That's all I need to know. It takes the itch away and it helps my scalp heal, and as long as it works, I won't be using anything else as my staple. Definitely recommend.
Good Shampoo & Conditioner Set to a Degree
Hannah from Indianapolis
I've had an itchy scalp for a while. I bought an argan oil product for my hair for my wedding then learned that I'm very allergic to argan oil, and since then my scalp has had an itch that doesn't seem to go away. I bought the dandruff set under the assumption that I had dandruff due to the allergic reaction and hoped it would calm my scalp down. The set smells lovely and cleaned my hair well and my hair felt soft after using it; however after a short amount of time my scalp would get super greasy and the itch wouldn't go away. After a while I switched to a shampoo set that deep cleans scalps and that has made a world of difference. My husband uses this for his dandruff and it works great for him. I do recommend this product for dandruff, but if you're still struggling with it after a while I recommend trying a deep cleaning shampoo instead. It could be that the itch is from clogged hair follicles.
Does the job without out the negatives of others
Drawley from Worcester
Got this because my bf experiences extreme dandruff and I get a little buildup now and again. We both have naturally oily hair, slight wavy texture. Both damaged by bleach, so I really wanted something that would help his situation without us damaging our hair or losing our color (we both do blues, purples, bright reds, etc) and man this does the trick. I've never used a dandruff shampoo that didn't kick my color to the curb (I've even used dandruff shampoo in the past to get rid of color on purpose) so this is a really great option for anyone who likes bleaching their hair and doing fashion colors.
It lathers a lot so you don't need much. I will say it gives you a bit of that too-clean/stripping feeling, but that goes away once you condition.
It Works After Years Finding A Holy Grail
Macy from Houston, TX
Wow, I cannot believe I finally found my product. I've always had dandruff since I was a kid. Now that I am older and bleached my hair blonde, its harder for me to find a good hair care without irritating my scalp. I have tried everything, Head And Shoulders, Redken, Paul Mitchell, Nizoral, EVERYTHING. I looked this up and I was stuck between Nioxin Scalp Recovery to this. I tried this one frankly for the affordable price... wow I am so glad I picked this one. My dry itchy scalp doesn't itch anymore and I don't have to do as much treatment like I did before. I can even leave my hair unwashed for almost a week and it still smells good while leaving it dry/healthy! I love it. Thank you, Matrix!
NO MORE ITCHY SCALP AND FLAKES!!!
Yesica from California
I found this gem after it was recommended on TikTok video by a former Ulta employee. I have tried so many different shampoos, products, and home remedies with no success. I have seen miraculous results using this shampoo for about two weeks now. My scalp is no longer itchy and I can finally run my fingers through my hair without any nasty flakes all over my clothing. I highly recommend!!!
