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!

Lindsay from Virginia
My husband starting buying this before me and I was mooching it. It is so good. Tingling and super cleansing, my hair feels amazing when I use this and I can get away with shampooing every other day when I normally have an oily scalp. I am so happy with it. Tried to save money and use a cheaper brand but nothing compares
Favorite Hair Shampoo
Carol from Oakland, CA
Love this shampoo. My brother also loves this. I get the biggest bottle available. This really cleans my hair. This was recommended years ago when my health was an issue and my hair had issues because of it. Talked with hair stylist and this was recommended. Used since maybe 2003
Best shampoo ever!
Kimmie from Miami, FL
I have ombré black red hair and my scalp gets oily very fast! Before I would have to wash my hair every two days. I decided to give this shampoo and try and I'm on 4 days and still don't have to wash! it's colored safe, I barley bleed with this shampoo. The icy cooling sensation is amazing. THIS IS NOT A EVERY DAY SHAMPOO! (it will definitely dry out your hair if you do that) my hair has never felt this cleaned! P.s make sure to get a good hydration conditioner with this shampoo and you'll be fine.
Didn't like at all
mzzzzz from New Jersey
I have straight, oily, somewhat fine hair. I don't use any styling products other than a heat protectant on occasion. I really wanted to love this shampoo and conditioner, but honestly it didn't do anything for me. It did the opposite, i felt like i was washing my hair daily because of the amount of oil whereas i washed it every 2 or 3 days before. The mint was way too much for me, and if it got in my eye it burned the rest of the day. I gave it a fighting chance, but i ended up returning the products.
OILS ARE GONE
Katie from Temple, TX
This product made my hair oils go away, oils are non existent for me. i loved this product and it left my hair soft the way i like it. the only thing i didnt like is that it sometimes makes my hair a little thicker and frizzier that i want it to be, but i think thats because of the Texas weather we have right now (sept 2020) so i do have to add leave in conditioner in the morning before i go to school when i want to, but overall i love this product and i would Buy AGAIN ! 😃😃
Best shampoo ever for dry scalp "Dandruff"
Evelise from Gadsden, AL
This product smells very great on the scalp. It smells like peppermint. I have very bad dry scalp, and this product does the work for me! Less scrubbing because this product does its job! After you wash it out of your hair, it has a cooling effect. Sort of like a chill breeze on the scalp and personally for me it feels good and chill. Doesn't feel like its burning, just working.

leaves scalp tingling and fresh
My go-to shampoo!
Casey from Pensacola, FL
My hair used to get so oily by 12:00 even if I washed it that morning. It didn't matter which product I used. Then I tried this. I've been using it consistently for a few years now and it's just perfect. I can go days without washing my hair but it doesn't dry my hair out or leave a film. Just try it!
Feels so clean and fresh
Madeline from Wi
I love the mint scent and tingling cold feeling
I have been using this product for years.

I love it!
Not the same as in the past
Musikgrl24 from Lansing, MI
I used to love Tea Tree Shampoo by Paul Mitchell. It's been many years since I'd used it and thought I'd give it a try again. Unfortunately, i was not impressed with the newer version. The older version seemed to be more tea tree and not so many other ingredients. It had a nice strong minty fresh scent and was moisturizing. This newer version still has a bit of a minty smell but not like in the past and doesn't have much of the "tingling" sensation. I have very thick course hair and it left it looking limp and very dried out (really stripped my hair which maybe it's supposed to do but didn't remember that being the case in the past). Will have to pass on buying this in the future.
Not for oily fine hair
Angela from ohio
i have realllyy oily fine hair and tons of dandruff and this made it worse. Hate the way it made my hair feel. My hair got greasier way sooner after washing.
Using this resulted in hair loss
Ciel from Tallahassee, FL
I really wanted to like this product, I really did. I've been having issues with build up in my hair in recent months as well as dandruff. I researched for a little while as to what products could help and stumbled upon this. It seemed to have overwhelmingly positive reviews so I decided to give it a try.
I used it for about fourteen days around three times each week. I paired the shampoo with the conditioner and didn't put anything in my hair, including outside products like gel, spray, etc. The only things that had contact with my hair were the shampoo and conditioner. Towards the end of week two, I began to notice pulling out an abnormal amount of hair in the shower. Now, I normally lose a lot of hair it's long and I live in a hot place, but this was most definitely a crazy amount to pull out and freaked me out. Once I hopped out of the shower I went to the mirror to look and noticed a bald spot beginning to form where my hair is at my left temple. There was a very, very noticeable difference between both sides of my forehead.
I've waited a couple of weeks now to switch shampoos to see if I continued to lose hair or not. Ever since switching shampoos, I have lost only a normal amount of hair again in the shower. To make matters worse, it only made my hair look gunkier and didn't help my dandruff whatsoever — I'm not sure what sort of change would've happened with just two weeks, but combined with hair loss this shampoo isn't worth it in my opinion. Another thing to note is that the bottle says that results are ONLY guaranteed when purchased from a salon and not when purchased from a store.
I spent so much money on the shampoo and conditioner so this is really crazy disappointing.
Please be careful using this shampoo. It may be just my hair and you may be fine using it as I seem to be one of the only people having issues with it, but I'm making this review as a way to caution other people on the fence about it.
jojo from Washington
I been having flakes /dantruff for the last 2 years purchased this in July ! and within a week I saw a big difference! my hair looks soo healthy and now I can wear my hair down! I was embarrassed when having my hair down dandruff would fall down if I touch my hair! leaves your hair soooo fresh!

Swimming and coloring sometimes leaves my scalp dry and this product relieves it right away.
The best shampoo for teenage hair!

Avoid getting in eyes is true for all shampoos but especially this one.
I will buy this again
RVA beauty hunter from VA
Just used this because I'm search of that minty tingly feeling that Shea Moisture in mint gave us and need it to be a cruelty-free product. This feels icy on your scalp after you massage it in well and rinse with water. It's awesome. The only con for us is that it has aloe in it but we'll do an allergy test with it to see if it triggers the aloe allergy someone in my home has sometimes. As for me, I will use this a few times a week but not every day just because I don't want to stop feeling that icy fresh feeling it gave me today. Incredible after being in the hot and muggy outdoors this time of year.
So good for my oily hair!
Amanda from Gaithersburg, MD
I've had difficulty with finding a good shampoo for me and my husband. We're both hispanic and have very thick, oily hair. This shampoo is so good! It's invigorating and super clarifying, but it doesn't strip my hair. I can now go 2-3 days in between washes!
Best for Dandruff/Sensitive Scalps/Irritated Scalps
D from Los Angeles
I swear by this shampoo, it leaves my scalp all tingly and has always cleared any kind of scalp irritation I may be having. Works really well for dandruff. My brother was using this forever and we found the run off cleared his bacne so he started using a dab on his acne. It really works. I've been using this forever, I used to use a tiny bit on breakouts in middle school.
I wanted to love this :(
Alicia from las vegas
I really love the way it feels on my scalp, I won't deny that. However it dried out my hair really bad and it did nothing for my dry scalp
Smells a little bit funky
Hair lover from San Francisco, CA
Smells a little different from the smaller bottles that I've had and not as minty. But it still cleans great and tingles my scalp.
Rakel from Fl
Really good shampoo
Refreshing in energizing in the morning

Refresh and keep your scalp clean .With a minty clean sensation and energizing feeling in a every day basis.
Would buy product again!
Renee from Illinois
Love this product!
A must have!
Dorothy from Richmond TX
I love how it leaves my hair feeling soft and a clean you can definitely feel. Some other brands I have used previously I had to wash a few times, which is not good. Tea Tree Special Shampoo is my go to.
