Best Dandruff Shampoo

By fatash

from Los Angeles, CA

Pros

  • Cleans Thoroughly
  • Gentle
  • Improves Hair Health

Cons

  • Doesn't Lather Well

Best Uses

  • Thinner Hair

Comments about Phyto PHYTHEOL INTENSE Dandruff Treatment Shampoo:

I tried using multiple dandruff treatments (Head and Shoulders, Neutrogena T-Gel, etc) to try and cure the dandruff disaster occurring on top of my head during the winter months. I figured the drugstore options were not working for me, so I opted to look in Ulta.

This shampoo is a godsend. Within two weeks, the flakes dramatically decreased and the itchiness was subsiding. (Note: I only shampoo 2-3 times a week because my hair is color treated.) You do have to follow the directions to get a good later. So wash it once through your roots regularly how you would with any other shampoo, rinse it out automatically, and then add ANOTHER palm size amount to work into your roots. The second time will give you a much better lather. It sucks because it feels like you're wasting some product, but it is worth it. I will continue using this and feel encouraged to buy other products from this company because of it.

Comments about Phyto PHYTHEOL INTENSE Dandruff Treatment Shampoo:

I've had really bad dandruff for most of my teenage and adult life and have tried SO MANY dandruff products that have not worked until now. I've washed my hair two times in one week and it almost completely removed my itchy, oily, red flakes! Only downfall is how small the bottle is and the price.

Pricy for flake freeness

By Chomp Life

from Tallassee, AL

Comments about Phyto PHYTHEOL INTENSE Dandruff Treatment Shampoo:

Very pricy for such a small bottle. Purchased due to severe dry scalp from years of coloring. After first use, it stripped my red coloring from my hair (I use a white towel to dry my hair and it was red all over), shampoo is watered down and not thick like shampoo normally is. Did not produce suds well but i did notice less flakes which might be a good thing. I also had to use a lot of product on my shoulder length thick head of hair.

Best dandruff shampoo you can buy

  • Cleans Thoroughly

Cons

  • Smells Bad

Best Uses

  • Oily Hair

Comments about Phyto PHYTHEOL INTENSE Dandruff Treatment Shampoo:

I get really bad dandruff sometimes to a point where it seems like my scalp is peeling and it bleeds a little. I've used this product before and it works wonders. After the first wash it starts to feel a little better, and with in 1st month in usually clears up with 2 washes a week. Its very important you read the directions! I've tried what seems to be almost every dandruff product out there and this has been the only that clears the problem.

  • Daily Use

Comments about Phyto PHYTHEOL INTENSE Dandruff Treatment Shampoo:

I am currently 32 years old. I have been dealing with horrible dandruff, build up, and itchiness since I was 15/16 years old. I have tried anything and everything on the market, even tried not washing my hair to let things "balance." Nothing ever worked for the long hull until I found this product. After about two weeks of using this I realized that I didn't have dandruff anymore. Not a smaller amount, or a little patch here or there, nothing!!! My scalp was finally healthy. My hair felt drier, but with the healthy scalp I wasn't as scared to put moisturizer on it to keep it conditioned. I cried when I thought that this product was discontinued when I couldn't find it anywhere for a month. I even called and texted my husband when I found it again. I currentlybstock pile this product because I never want to run out, ever!!! Thank you for the creators of this amazing god send. It changed my life!

      • Q:

        Hi. I'm curious what the difference is between this and the phyto moisturizing scalp exfoliating shampoo. I have previously purchased the Intense one with great results, but since the price and instructions on usage are the same and the bottle is bigger on the other, I was wondering if they would work similarly. Thank you.

        Is this product color safe? I recently colored my hair and do not want it to fade or change color from this product.

          A:

          Our PHYTHEOL INTENSE Dandruff Treatment Shampoo is color safe. All of our shampoos are color safe.

          We do not use chemical solvents for cleansing, but rather a coconut oil derived cleanser. That it is why it is color safe and chemically treated safe!

        Is this good on normally dry hair?

        • Staff Expert

          A:

          Yes, you can use this shampoo on hair that is prone to dryness. However, please note that this is not a daily shampoo, and should be alternated with your daily shampoo. Use two to three times a week for one month as an intense treatment. Then, use once a week to maintain. A great daily shampoo for you would be the Phytojoba Intense Hydration Brillance Shampoo. Enjoy!
