Most Helpful Positive Review Works Well
ok, let me first say that I didn't want to like this stuff! HOWEVER,,,it does work nicely. I have had a dry flaky scalp for 20 years and this stuff cures it in one wash. I hated the smell in the bottle and in the shower,,,HOWEVER the smell changes once your hair dries and it does smell great during the day--never thought I'd say that! I don't use it everyday so I can't review it on daily use, but I do use it off and on between my other shampoos. I will always own a bottle of this stuff. If you are buying it because you have a flaky scalp,,,let me tell you this. Just about any shampoo you buy that is a PROFESSIONAL shampoo will do the job. What is drying everyones scalp out are the cheap products that all contain SULFATEs--which help you hair lather up like in the commercials. They cheap products are loaded up heavily with sulfates, the professional shampoos have less sulfates to NO sulfates. My other recommendations would be AG Smooth, AG Colour Saviour, Pureology, Alterna Caviar and anything by LIVING PROOF!!!!! All of them will eliminate your dry scalp! Also, use a clarifing shampoo once a week to eliminate buildup, which can also cause dry scalp. OH,,,one last tip,,,it is not good for everyone to wash every other day or two if they have a dry scalp. I get a dry scalp because even though my hair/scalp seem dry to me, the scalp is actually clogging itself with daily oil, which then creates the dandruff. Washing my hair EVERYDAY has eliminated the flakes as well. So if you use professional products and still have a dry scalp, switch to washing every day or opposite depending on what you currently do.
Most Helpful Critical Review Good as a clarifying shampoo, not for dandruff
I have been taking medication that gives me a severe dry scalp. A hair stylist suggested I use this to cure it and it may help with occasional flakes but i don't suggest for sever dry scalp. I think this is more geared toward removing residue and thoroughly cleaning build up from the scalp rather than actual dry scalp. If you find your hair greasy and lifeless this should help with that as a once a week treatment but for severe dandruff try Biolage Scalpsync it saved my scalp!

I use this for my scalp psoriasis. It keeps me from itching. Also if you have children in school this shampoo keeps lice away :)

I love the cooling and cleansing properties of this shampoo. I have oily hair and find it very cleansing. The scent is pleasent and the cooling/tingling feeling is very relaxing.
Bad packaging. Shampoo leaked

Product itself is great.
I love this shampoo
Emma with oily hair from Canada
I use this product every other day, but in the past I used it daily. I have very oily hair and though it has improved recently, I usually wash my hair every other day to keep it looking nice. I had tried some cheaper, drug store shampoos that advertised helping control oily hair to no avail so when my grandmother recommended this product I was skeptical, but it is not the only shampoo I use as I found that it worked wonders for my oily hair (and my hair was so oily that the oil would already be showing on my roots by the end of the day even if I washed it in the morning). I love this shampoo and would definitely recommend it for people with oily hair! Just don't get it in your eyes because it really burns!!!
I would buy this again

My brother has pretty mad dandruff and redness and I got him this shampoo many moon ago and he's always asking me to get him more when it runs out. Works like a charm for him. No complaints

Josssssy from Destin FL
I have to say I'm impressed!!!!!! The shampoo has such a nice odor to it that even stays after ironing your hair, I mean who can beat that????! Also it's a great cleanser, I have extremely oily hair and had a bit of dandruff coming out and girllllll... this shampoo left my hair CLEAN! And it's so shiny. I'm very happy with this product. Coming back to buy the big one! As I bought the tiny sample

This is my go to shampoo. I love the way it makes my scalp feel and it cleans any product build up from stylers. It has a great scent that really wakes you up in the morning, which I love.
Dries my fine hair out
cherry from Indianapolis. IN
My fine hair was extremely dried out by this shampoo. I love the small and tingle, but I feel like my hair is going to break.
Idk if I would buy again
Jim the runner from Texas
I naturally have really oily hair. I wash my hair every other day or every two days and it still gets oily only a few hours after I've washed it. I did some research on the best shampoos for oily/greasy hair and this one was one of the top recommended. It did help with the oiliness but the smell triggered migraines. I have to be careful with what products I buy because overpowering smells will cause me to get a migraine. I also didn't like how it made my scalp feel when using it in the shower. So if you don't like super strong smells or a tingling sensation when you are washing I wouldn't recommend.
smells amazing, but leaves hair crusty :((
Eureka from Ontario, CA
I bought this (along with the accompanying conditioner) because I heard the tea tree oil in it helps with dandruff. Unfortunately, it had no effect on my dandruff. The shampoo smells so amazing and it gave a wonderful tingling sensation. However it totally dried out my hair and left everything crusty and damaged. I can't recommend it. :(

I would buy this product again
Shay J from Fort Lauderdale
I use this product to wash my locs, my scalp felt very clean and refreshed.
Favorite shampoo ever!
K-Fed from Columbus, OH
This shampoo and conditioner are the best I have ever used. I only use it maybe once a week most of the year, because it is a little pricey for my budget (but what do you expect, its Paul Mitchell). I use it more often in the winter because it seems to help with my seasonal dry scalp. I love the way it makes my scalp feel, like someone is blowing spearmint gum all over my head. It has a nice lather as well. My hair always feels squeaky clean after using. 10/10 would recommend!
Bri from Mississippi
I have extremely oily hair and have to wash it every day. This shampoo is worth every penny.

Been wanting to try this for years. I knew I d like it
It is the most economical dandruff control
WDarling from Asheville NC
I shampoo with cold water to destroy dandruff with tea tree shampoo
I like it but...
Nsk from Florida
I liked how it tingled my scalp. But then I waited to wash my hair after two days like fir two months, my hair stunk like sweat. I was wondering if it was me to my surprise that had never happened before. Then I changed the shampoo. My hair became fine until few days after wash.
Awful. Not meant for sensitive skin
Banana from Tx
This is by far the worst shampoo I've ever used. A month after throwing it out, my scalp is still healing.
Possibly my holy grail hair care!
CMMT from Colorado
I love this shampoo and the matching conditioner! I tried it out when I got my hair cut at the salon in November of 2019 and loved the tingly feeling it gave my scalp. Got a travel size of both when I went out of state to visit family, and fell in love with the products. Purchased the full sizes after returning home, then re-purchased when I ran out. My scalp tends to get itchy and this set helps to relieve it. It leaves my hair shiny and smooth with great volume. It was also nice to have this around when my daughter and I picked up a case of head lice! Tea Tree, mint, and lavender are used in some of the natural lice repellents and this product makes no claims against lice but I think it may have helped. In the past year (plus a little) that I've been using this set I have used some of my other shampoos and conditioners (empty bottle challenges, anyone?!) but my hair loves me when I come back to my Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and conditioner! When these bottles run out I will probably repurchase again. I think I've finally found my Holy Grail Hair Care!
My son loves this product
Dyan from Lexington ky
Best thing for buildup!
Chey from Wisconsin
I struggle with buildup in my hair from products, which can cause an almost sticky like feeling to it. Once I use this stuff and massage throughout my hair, my hair feels refreshed and revitalized! This works better than an apple cider vinegar rinse!
