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.

My first impression of this shampoo is that it was really good. It cleaned my hair really well and did work for my dandruff. After using it for a couple of months I started to notice an intense amount of hair loss. It also has harmful ingredients. I think a safer and more clean alternative for this would be the briogeo scalp revival. But I will not be using this product ever again.

This is amazing. My hair stylist recommended it after I told her I get bad dry scalp and oily hair. I used to get oily hair after a day. But this shampoo is amazing. I can go three days without washing my hair and it still looks healthy and my dandruff is not noticeable anymore. I would definitely recommend using this!
This saved my scalp!

Ok I'm going to preface this by saying I've only used this for two washes - but continue reading if you have scalp flare ups/issues!
I've been having a hard time finding shampoos. I have very fine hair that I used to have to wash every day because it would get oily within HOURS.
Prior to using this shampoo I was using the tea tree line by Paul Mitchell and it was great, but I wanted to find something with more oil control. 1.5 days into a wash, my hair would be oily again.
I tried another brand for two washes, maybe 3? And it gave me a MAJOR scalp flare up. I went back to my tea tree shampoo and my scalp wouldn't stop itching.
It was to the point where it was an uncontrollable itch. I was losing hair like crazy in clumps. Not sure what was happening but my hair was FALLing out. I was so scared.
First wash using this, I had lost SO much hair. Actual clumps. But this had nothing to do with the shampoo, it was due to whatever my condition was. I felt immediate relief once I step foot out of the shower and the itching had gone down a lot. By the next day, itching had subsided and hair wasn't falling out as much. Two days later after initial washing, I washed again and I can now say not as much hair in the drain and barely any itching!
After one wash, this shampoo saved me from losing all my hair!!! I'll have to see how oil control works, but for now I'll be using this shampoo for quite some time.

I had really bad dandruff and I would try so many and I felt like they would make it worse until I tried this one ! After a week of use I saw a HUGE difference ! I love it. It makes your hair soft
Works great, but not awesome for curly hair
Abby from Saint Paul
I bought this for my partner who has straight thick black hair. It works great for him. Keeps the flakes away. However the ingredients aren't super friendly to my thick, naturally curly hair. It does the trick for dandruff, but I guess I am still on the hunt for a curl-friendly dandruff shampoo that works like this does.
I wouldn't waste my money on it again
Brenda from Odessa Tx
I bought this because I have always heard that Biolage was a good shampoo I usually have dandruff issues and have to use and anti dandruff shampoo at least once a week so I can avoid dandruff. Biolage was on sales so I took the risk and bought it beside 3 other different bottles of Biolage well I can probably say that I should just stick with head and shoulders because this actually made my dandruff worst I had to stop using it and go back to head and shoulders. I'm not saying this is a bad shampoo it just didn't work for me and was definitely not worth what I paid on it.
GRAND but harmful ingredients
nessa from jackson, TN
I've written a review about living the results of the shampoo, but I'd like to mention there is dimethicone and parabens that cause hair loss, so don't use it every wash but more as a treatment.
Bre L. from MI
This stuff has done so well for my dandruff. I've tried so many other things before and I've never seen real improvement. I still get dandruff but it is easily brushed out and doesn't continue to flake. My mom even commented on how much better it was and she's usually the first to call me out on it lol
I would buy this again!
Sarah from Hemet, Ca
I love this shampoo. It really helped control my dandruff and kept my hair soft and clean.
Got rid of my dandruff!!
Catherine from Upper Michigan
I suffered from a dry scalp and had dandruff for years. Every time I'd look in the mirror I'd be able to see the flakes. A few months ago I bought+started using this, and dandruff is finally a thing of the past for me!!
Make sure to follow the directions on the bottle (massage into the scalp, let it sit for a couple minutes). When I first started using it, I used it twice a week, and quickly got results. I'm not sure how long it took to completely get rid of the dandruff, but it wasn't long (2-3 weeks? I'm not sure.) I've had it for a few months now, and I use it about once a week now. I highly recommend it!
Worked great! So happy!
Marisa from Ohio
I had BAD dry scalp/dandruff that would bleed and this took care of it after only a few washes and didn't dry out or damage my fair at all! I would definitely recommend this!! I'm so happy to have found something that works on my scalp finally!!
Would not recommend
Wzy713 from USA
Used this shampoo three times a week for month and it didn't help my dandruff at all, in fact I think it made it worse.
Elle from VA
It has methylparaben, I thought it was an obvious deterrent for buying it....Pass on it.
Klgarza5 from TX
It's not the best dandruff shampoo I've ever used, but it does work. It's not sulfate free which is a big thing these days. I wish it had a more cooling effect. The one thing I dislike the most, and the oddest comparison, if you've ever had pho, it smells like pho... so weird I know lol but that's what I smell.. it does work though and it's good to just wash my hair 2-3 times a week.
I think I found my shampoo!
Gloria from Texas
From the first use my scalp shower improvement, and my hair was smoother!
Love how this makes my hair look and feel

Keeps my hair from looking oily and flat
I HAVE FOUND A DANDRUFF SOLUTION AND IT'S BEEN GREAT!!
veevee from san fernando valley, ca
I struggled with dandruff all my life but luckily after research plus trial and error, I can confidentially recommend this anti dandruff shampoo! for me personally it worked wonders with the Derma-E Scalp Relief Conditioner!! I put a few dollops of the shampoo at my roots and scalp, leave for 3 mins, rinse then apply a few dollops of the the conditioner, leave for 4 mins, rinse and VOILA— no dandruff for 5 PLUS DAYS even with working out/being in the sun/going to the pool/beach day!! in between, I can use other shampoos and conditioners without the pesky dander flakes appearing or use dry shampoo to lengthen my duration. overall very pleased with this product, don't hesitate to buy!
Marissa from Cali
My scalp was so dry and I had so many flakes until I started using the shampoo & conditioner!! Saw such a big difference the first day I used it! Can't see myself using anything else!!!
Effective on Flakes
MissMV from Orange County
Recently started getting a flaky scalp. Not sure if due to products or change in seasons. Took a chance on this product and it delivered. After a handful of washes flakes were gone.
Can't live without it!
Em from California
I've tried most dandruff shampoos and they were either to harsh or didn't work at all! This has helped clear my scalp and it is now flake free!
Diana from Sulphur Springs,Tx
Use it every other day , it works the first day I used it. My dry scalp is so much better and I don't see any embarrassing flakes.
this is a miracle shampoo
Km from Lake jackson,TX
I had just tried another shampoo and had a pretty bad reaction to it. My scalp was red, itchy, and dandruff was flaking off like crazy (way more than the small amount I usually have). So I took back the other shampoo and got this one to try and fix my scalp and the dandruff. I applied it and used a scalp massager with it in my hair, I left it in my hair for about 3-4 minutes and it started to cool my scalp (the mint I'm guessing). I got out of the shower and dried my hair and I haven't seen a single flake of dandruff since. AMAZING.
Yes I will buy this product again.
Val from Omaha Ne
After only 2uses my scalp feels improvement.
the best anti-dandruff shampoo
Anna from MI
hands down my favorite shampoo. it smells really nice, lathers well, and leaves my head feeling clean and refreshed. since I started using it my dandruff has nearly cleared up.
I will buy this product again and again!
Heatha from Montana
I love this shampoo! I'm in shock at how well it works! I had the worst dandruff and used once and I dont see one speck of dandruff in my hair! I am so relieved!
