I'm a thrifty shopper & was hesitant to spend this much money on a product that I hadn't tested myself, but the stellar reviews led me to bite the bullet & give it a shot knowing I could return it if it didn't work. I am in LOVE. I'm in my late 20s & have struggled with a dry scalp & forehead for the past few years in the fall/winter. Assuming it was dandruff, I tried Head & Shoulders + the H&S Dry Scalp formula with no success. I was nervous about trying any kind of dry scalp treatment, assuming it would make my scalp - which is already prone to greasiness - really oily. Enter Living Proof. This stuff is a miracle in a bottle. I was skeptical at first, but after the first treatment, I saw a 90% flake reduction with no oiliness. If anything, it's volumizing. Fast forward 2 weeks later - I've been using it every other day, & I now only see a couple of teensy tiny flakes a day that are the size of a needle head. Compare that to the seemingly endless stream of gigantic flakes that would appear everytime I brushed my hair...it's a phenomenal improvement. I don't know how it works & I don't care. 12/10 would recommend.
PS - if you also have dry skin on your face, try adding The Ordinary's squalane oil after applying your moisturizer. It's so inexpensive & effective, I swear by that stuff now!
I have tried to love Living Proof, but their products are not meant for my hair. I tried this in another desperate attempt to get control of my dry, itchy, super flaky scalp. This product made about 1" of hair at the scalp level really dry and it feels rough with some sort of chalky residue. My scalp is also flakier today after washing my hair and applying this product than it ever is using my previous products. I followed the instructions exactly, and I also know it says 4 weeks, but I don't feel like after the first use it should be like this. This item is going in the trash. No more Living Proof products for me...this was my last attempt.

I use this directly on the scalp as per the instructions on the bottle. I don't use it every day, but more like 2-3 times a week. i did it for a month or two and now my problem has gone down significantly. I still use it but now it's more like once a week when I feel like I need it.

You have to part your hair in six sections, then 3 horizontal to apply. Have to use it on damp hair.

I've had to live with a dry, itchy scalp for as long as I can remember. I tried countless options but this really works! I had immediate relief after the first use. There was a definite difference! After two uses I not longer had a dry or itchy feeling scalp. I've even been able to use less product and still maintain I healthy scalp after using it as directed.

The restore dry scalp treatment is amazing. I would recommend it to men and women dealing with a dry/itchy scalp. Especially women with postpartum scalp and hair. I felt like my itch would not go away. I was at the point of making an appointment with my dermatologist to get medical attention. I went through 5 different shampoos and conditioners in probably 2 months. Looking for a right fit. Only bad thing I do need to apply it every time after I wash my hair. So worth it though. My scalp is free and I'm at peace...finally < 3

I thought it was a shampoo at first. It works well and took care of my dry hair line. The only thing is that I've noticed I'd get one or two pimples on my scalp after applying. First application, I got one. Second application was today and I noticed two pimples formed on my scalp. Other than that, I like how it took care of my scalp.

I applied this as instructed. It smelled great, was easy to apply, and felt nice, but as soon as I blow dried my hair, my roots were incredibly greasy. Returning this ASAP.

I've suffered from itchy, dry, flaky scalp for years. Nothing was working for me. I googled what else to use and the reviews on this item had me hopeful. After the first time of use it helped and I noticed a difference. I don't think it "cures" the problem, but it works as long as you continue using it. I love it! It doesn't leave your hair oily and it doesn't have a smell.

Relief of itching and dry look scalp.
Ash from Indiana
I had one problem area of extreme scale/dandruff and itching. I tried head and shoulders dry scalp and other treatments to no avail. Tried this product and had immediate relief with the first use. I have been using this product for more than 3 months and have been able to manage my dandruff with 3 time a week use and I am still on my first bottle. I also love that Terracycle offers recycling options that supports my minimal waste/ plastic free lifestyle. Would 100% recommend and will be using this product lifelong.

I suffer from extreme psoriasis on my scalp. I have to use a certain shampoo to keep my skin in check but sometimes my psoriasis flares up & I get really bad flaky build up on my scalp. I have constant huge flakes in my hair and it get be embarrassing. After just one use of this product, it cleared up everything! I was flake free the next day. And my scalp was pretty clear for the next several days after! It's very simple to use. I followed instructions and it worked very well. A little goes a long way. Also, I've been using it just once or twice a week. I'm so happy I found a product that really works!

This is honestly the best thing I've purchased for my scalp. Year round I have an extremely flaky, reddened scalp (not itchy though..weird) that hasn't improved despite numerous extremely expensive recommendations from the dermatologist :) This is the only thing that has completely cleared up my scalp. Make sure to massage it in every few minutes while your hair is drying (or else it will get crunchy). But if you do that your hair won't look greasy or anything! This has saved my life haha and is wayyy more affordable than anything else.

I have spent a lot of money trying several different products to relieve my itchy scalp. THIS is seriously the only thing that worked. I use it 3 times a week and could even tell a difference after the first use. After the 3rd use, I was not even touching my scalp anymore. You will not be disappointed with this product. Finally something that worked for me!

I recently went to the hair salon and got my hair done and ended up having a terrible chemical reaction/burn to the hair dye....ever since then my scalp got way more dry and irritated. I would notice I had dandruff after I would wash my hair. I used coconut oil, Dove, H&S....nothing helped it go away! Until I did my research on this brand and product!!! I really wanted to test it out. And it works wonders 😊 my scalp feels so much better and no dandruff!!! Spend the money because it's honestly worth every penny to me!

I was so desperate to find a product that would help me with my dry scalp issue. I tried head and shoulders, scalp masks, and scalp detoxes, but none of them provided relief for more than a day. I bought this when I was on my last straw, and I has more than blown away my expectations! I have only used it for a couple of weeks now and it has changed my whole scalp! I have only placed it on the affected areas, but it has done wonders!

I'm a Dad with 2 sons and one of them suffers from dry scalp due to his hair texture and showering so much after sports. After using this product 3 times we can already see and he can feel the difference.

Every single winter my scalp becomes extremely dry. After reading the reviews for this product, I was hopeful that it would give me some relief. I've used this for 2 months now as instructed and unfortunately it hasn't done anything for my dry scalp. I don't recommend this product at all.

After having a baby I experienced postpartum hair loss and dry scalp. I was so uncomfortable. Trusting the reviews here, I picked some up this dry scalp treatment at my local Ulta. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but it was totally worth it. I used it at the end of my shower after squeezing excess water out of my hair. It truly helped. At this point I only use as needed.

My boyfriend has very dry hair a dry scalp. He could go a month without shampoo before his hair got oily, if that tells you how dry. He has bad dandruff, both big flakes and small flakes. I use this on him whenever his scalp gets especially bad. Sometimes he will get a really dry patch and he will scratch through to the second layer of skin. I can put this directly on those spots with no burning. The product doesn't leave a trace behind once it soaks into the hair and scalp. He still has dandruff, but he doesn't let me put it on him very often. I am sure it would cure the small flakes, but I think the big flakes are dandruff due to some sort of bacteria on the scalp. I highly suggest this to people with dry, itchy scalps who need relief.

I hate that this product is so expensive & never goes on sale; but let me tell you this is the one product that actually soothes my scalp under crochets, braids, & sew ins. Sometimes I use it after a shampoo with my leave in conditioner. I have the kind of dry, flaky scalp that 2 seconds after a wash you can scrape around my edges. Black girls please dont sleep on the Living Proof line or let the price tag deter you. After an application of this I follow up with some oil. OH, & if you're using it on dry hair-like I do between styles to let my hair breath be prepared to blow dry a bit.

this has worked wonder for me. I get really dry flaky skin on my scalp during the winter. I've had this for a year now and found I only need it in the cold months. it doesnt leave any weird residue, nor does it leave my scalp oily. I might be buying this for my dad who has terrible flakes on his head!

I bought this to help with dry scalp, but it doesn't seem to work well. It's light and not greasy, but not sure what it does. Would not reccomend.
