Most Helpful Positive Review Best Shampoo for oil and build up!
This shampoo is what I've been searching for. I have an oily scalp that causes build up of rough, scaly patches. At first I thought it was dandruff, but no dandruff shampoo solved the problem. My stylist recommended this shampoo and I'm so thankful! It smells amazing and the tingling sensation feels great as I massage it into my scalp. After just 3 days the build up was gone and my hair had more volume. I can even wash my hair every other day now! I plan to try the conditioner as well. The only downfall is it's a little pricey, but I'm willing to pay because it works!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not that great...
I bought this product because I have oily roots/scalp with dry ends. This was supposed to cleanse without over-drying. First, regarding the smell, it doesn't really smell like mint at all. The shampoo contains menthol, which caused a tingling sensation that was a bit much for me. For a shampoo for oily hair, it didn't rinse out well. My scalp and roots were oily again within 12 hours of use. I was using this with Hydrosource Detangling Solution conditioner (which I liked). Ultimately I had to return both products, as one of them caused me to have an allergic reaction. Beware if you have sensitive, reaction prone skin.

Ive tried so many different shampoos because my hair would literally be greasy 2 hours later and this is the only one that has worked. I can go 2-3 days without washing my hair. When I use it it feels nice because the mint is cooling but I really don't like the smell.
Not worth it

This product made my scalp even more greasy than it had ever been. Don't even bother.
Waste of money
C from The moon
This shampoo smells like bad BO and it left my hair oilier than ever before
Not as described
AMC from Texas
This was not cooling, tingly, or minty. It does not even smell like mint. I would not recommend if you are wanting the cool mint sensation.
umm...IDK. I dont think so...
Gonna see what happens... from Dallas, Texas
I used this some years ago and stopped using it but i couldnt remember why. I recently picked some up but...yeah i now remember its because of how greasy it makes my hair.
I got this shampoo last friday 10/09/2020, used it Saturday 10/10/2020 and by Monday 10/12/2020 my hair looked like my hair does on day 4 or 5 of Head & Shoulders. It sure does have a funky chemical smell but the only thing i have noticed is my scalp is not as itchy or dandruffy and the smell is not nearly as bad as H&S.
Im going to give it till i finish the bottle this time.
From my understanding, you can "train" your scalp to go a long time before washes so im going to tough it out use the shampoo twice a week until the bottle is out and see if my hair can grow used to it and stop being so oily....
Thank you Dallas, goodnight!
Keeps oily hair tamed
Jordan from Michigan
Just bought this shampoo. First time I used it was 2 days ago. It does make your scalp tingle somewhat or gives it a cooling sensation. But, I have used no dry shampoo nothing and my hair looks like the end of the day of the first day I washed it with other shampoos! Usually by day 2 of not washing my hair my scalp itches too! Not happening (yet). It's a little pricey and I'm not super fond of the smell (it doesn't smell bad I just prefer my hair to have a perfume scent to it) I used the color conditioner and it makes it smell more the way I want it. It's a little pricey but with not washing my hair everyday I'm sure it will last awhile plus ulta always has sales!
It saved my scalp
darcyn from Warren MI
I bought this shampoo and conditioner because my scalp was peeling and flaking so severely that when I would itch my head it would bleed. this happened particularly around my hairline which was super embarrassing. after using this for a week or two there was a huge difference. now this is my usual shampoo and conditioner combo that I use and I have had zero issues with flakes or dry scalp at all.
Vanessa from AZ
I have returned this product because it made my hair so much more oily. I didn't think that was possible. I used it for 3 washes and it was not helping at all. I will go back to Paul Mitchell tea tree special shampoo.
Jax from Los Angeles
It made my scalp tingly, and my eyes too. I did like the cooling but it dried out my hair so much, the sale price was not worth it.
Sam from Ohio
As soon as I put the shampoo in my hair I knew it was going to be horrible. It made it tangly and hard to run fingers through even in the shower. It felt very drying and almost like it stripped my hair (more than any I've tried for a long time). Also another huge problem is the smell, as soon as I got my hair out of the towel I was smelling some type of chemical odor and couldn't believe it was the product I just put on my scalp! Smelled kind of like laundry stain remover. Returning and not buying again.
Great for cleaning dry, winter scalp without harsh chemicals
Nurse from Minneapolis, MN
Use this once a week during winter months, followed with my usual conditioner. I do have color treated hair and this brand does not strip or otherwise damage the color.
Not to be a Karen but...

I've used this shampoo for about 2 years and they recently changed the formula. The original formula was white, had the cooling sensation as advertised and created suds when washing. This new formula is clear, provides no cooling or minty sensation and just sits on your hair. If you're seeking a shampoo that actually feels like it's cleaning your hair - please look elsewhere. The formula has made my hair more oily than usual. I'm upset I bought the larger sizes during the Jumbo sale as I do not wish to continue to use this product for what it has done to my hair.
Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

Makes my hair feel so clean after and has a good smell. Doesn't get as oily within a day or two with this
I bought it for my son and he really likes it.

I bought it for my son and he really likes it. The shampoo was on sale and I used the $3.50 off coupon also. What a great deal!
Excellent shampoo and conditioner
Trish from Mesa az
My daughter and I use this all the time. Love the liter sale at Ulta we always stock up!
Made a big difference
Lauren from Austin, TX
I typically have very oily, thin hair and have always struggled finding shampoos and conditioners that didn't make my hair feel worse. This has helped me so much and I don't have to wash my hair everyday. The conditioner does leave my hair a little squeaky clean but I use hair oil for the ends of my hair to keep it soft.
This is awesome!
Ady from Arkansas
This is a great product. When I used head and shoulders it made my hair really oily and my hair is already enough oily. This is a lot better than any other products I have used.
NEW HOLY GRAIL?!
Chandler G from flower mound texas
so this is a first impression review and will update if anything changes but.... this shampoo is amazing. I was hesitant to buy it cuz of some of the bad reviews, but always remember if you dont like it you can return it! Anyways my hair is really thin, i have oily roots and dry ends. this cleans my scalp so well and it doesnt feel weighed down at all. It lathers and rinses out easily. While this does have sulfate in it, it doesnt bother me b/c i only wash my hair 1-2x a week. After using, i use the Redken ALL SOFT conditioner which is also love b/c it doesnt weigh my thin hair down. Overall, i reccomend at least trying this if you struggle with oily roots. Hair is tricky and it really is a lot of trial and error to find the right match for you!
No more oily roots!
Lindsey from St. Louis
I love this shampoo I'll never buy anything else! I have purchased a variety of shampoo and have never been able to get rid of my oily roots. My hair is still nice and moisturized. It is very refreshing as well
This product is AMAZING
Brooke from Lancaster, OH
As a person with oily dandruff hair, I can say this product is amazing. There's not a lot of hair care for my type of hair, and the ones that do exist are just flat out garbage. This, however, is amazing. My dandruff has disappeared, along with the oil. It's like straight up magic. If I could give it 7 stars, I would.
Not just for oily scalp
Tracey from Illinois
This stuff is amazing for itchy scalp when hair is growing back after chemo. The mint soothes the itching and makes the scalp feel cool temporarily.
Tina from Texas
it definitely works for my scalp. gets my hair clean with volume. I'm using it with the scalpsync conditioner but im still finding the ends of my hair dry and brittle. Doing coconut oil treatments to combat that.
Worked for a while...
hayley from Miami
This product smells really good and worked for a while... I have a dry flaky scalp and I feel like there were less flakes for about a week after I started using it. But now it's like I've built up an immunity to it and it doesn't work anymore. I have no idea what to try next because none of the "scalp" shampoos work for me.
Better then head and shoulders

I have PCOS so I get dandruff and buildup and the medicated shampoos are gross this one feels good smells good and works!
Needing The Refill

The cool mint smell is nice, it works with some minor flaking sometimes. Still better then some other shampoos and remedies that have been tried.
