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!

If you have eczema or generally sensitive skin, STAY AWAY!!! This product line has been causing a year long flare up of painful contact dermatitis for me that even steroid creams were unable to clear until I finally stopled using this product. This product also caused excessive hair breakage, even post wash. I began to lose a ton of hair. Please men, especially those of you with sensitive eczema prone skin, avoid this product! Use things in your hair that are way more gentle!
Great for oily hair
Claire from Georgia
I have extremely oily hair. With regular shampoo, my hair is greasy the very next morning. With this shampoo, I can probably go with 2-3 days without washing it. Amazing stuff! BUT. Here is a warning. DO NOT use this every single day. It will really irritate your scalp and make it flake up with dandruff. And a little bit goes a VERY, VERY LONG WAY! I PROMISE!! Let your scalp take a break before you start cleansing it again.
Best shampoo and conditioner period.
Crazy horse and dog lady from Campo Bonito AZ
I had relentlessly searched for a shampoo and conditioner to help my hair. I have natural waves and with age the waves in my hair were disappearing. I've tried cheap to extremely expensive products to get back what I once had. This shampoo and conditioner has brought life back to my hair. Now I have lots of waves and body AND a beautiful healthy shine! I'm so impressed and happy. My hair looks like I have spent hours styling it now, when all I've done is let it air dry. I don't need any other products in my hair and it looks awesome all day long. I make sure I take the extra time to wash my scalp thoroughly and then the rest of the hair. I work the conditioner through each strand and then tie it up before finishing my shower and rinsing it out. I have natural white hair and with this shampoo and conditioner I have no yellowing from the environment. I now have beautiful shiny silky wavy white hair and I love it! The bonus is the lovely tingle on the scalp, which is refreshing. I have and will continue to recommend this shampoo and conditioner to everyone. It works. Another bonus is the faster hair growth. My hair is growing faster than it ever has before. My endless search is over. I'm a loyal customer of Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special shampoo and conditioner now.

This is a great shampoo! It lathers well and leaves scalp invigorated. I use it when I have migraines and it helps provide relief!
Just What I Needed
nikki182 from Arizona
I think I finally found what I was looking for. I needed a clarifying-ish shampoo that would work well enough to remove both oil and flakes from my scalp eczema but also not dry out my curls. I wanted something with tea tree oil and came across this. I feel like it does a great job getting my hair clean and has a good amount of tea tree oil in it. I enjoy the smell and the tingle on my scalp. I shampoo my hair twice a week and originally planned to just use it weekly but I've been using it both times with no issues.
do not buy for dandruff
Adrie from Maine
made it way worse!!!
love, Love, LOVE how it makes my scalp feel!
Dina from Michigan
I tried this shampoo and conditioner due to the rave reviews of my niece. She said that she loved the way the shampoo made her scalp feel. She is aware that I am an essential oil user and use Tea Tree essential for medicinal purposes but that the smell is not especially "pretty." She had just washed her hair that day and had me smell it...Mmmmm is my one word to describe it! So, I bought it to try. She was right, it felt AMAZING on my scalp, I LOVED the smell (especially the conditioner) and my hair felt softer than it ever has. Even my husband (who is NOT supposed to be using my shampoo ;) came out of the shower commenting on how great his head felt! The only "down" side to it is I do have fine this hair so the fact that it made my hair so soft made it so that I needed other product in my hair to give it lift...but I would have used that anyway so....I say try it, I think you will like it! I gave it 4 stars by the way because of how soft it made my hair which I both very much liked and disliked at the same time.
I will definitely be a repeat consumer
Nia from NY

I love this shampoo
Tlr from Toledo
This shampoo smells great and feels tingly on the scalp.
Amanda M. from Las Vegas
My hair is the type to get oily after 4 hours. I tried this on a whim because one of the stylists suggested it and some of the reviews were saying the same. It does have a cooling and tingly feeling, once applied to the scalp. And if you don't use a different soap it will stay on your hands a little longer after you think you've washed it off. I also tried washing with it everyday and in the morning, it had made my hair feel like straw and my hair didn't get as oily as fast but I'd still need to wash it everyday. But then I started washing it at night before I went to bed (also had my hair dry before doing so) and it'd last all day and I could even push it till the afternoon the 2nd day before I got a hint of oiliness. It's a great detox shampoo but it does have a strong fragrance, almost like peppermint but stronger and not as sweet. I noticed that the smell is really strong right after a shower but after an hour or 2 it does lessen and some people around me smell a lingering scent, which I don't mind but others might. The only thing I don't like is the fact that my scalp is almost sensitive after? Like if it's cold out I can feel my scalp almost being frozen and since the shampoo kind of washes over my skin, I can feel it doing the same thing to the parts of skin it washed over. It doesn't stay like that long it'll go away after my hair drys. So other then that I love this shampoo and I've gotten used to the scent and the cooling effect which is really relaxing now. If I could give it 4 1/2 stars I would.
Can't go wrong
Hannah from Kansas
This is the ol'reliable when it comes to my hair care. It's worth the hype. My hair is long, thick, and corse but after using it consistently and can also add in healthy. It works in the humidity in the summer and the dryness in the winter.
I love this shampoo!

Feel goo on my scalp.
Stacey from FL
Will purchase again.
I get clumps of hair left in the shower when I use this
Nina from Chicago,IL
I have extremely thick hair and this made it fall out after almost one year of use. This shouldn't happen since I am only in my early twenties.... I got it because I thought it was supposed to prevent hair loss. I switched to a professional brand and there was zero hair in my shower. I also do not use any other hair products that could have caused the hair thinning/loss, so it must be this shampoo and conditioner.
Made my scalp extremely itchy and greasy
G from New York
I heard many great things about this product, and I really wanted to like it. I was SHOCKED to see how horribly my scalp and hair reacted to it. My hair was greasy after I showered and my scalp was extremely itchy. I tried it again, using less product and making sure to give a good rinse and still got the same results. please be careful if you have a sensitive scalp, everyone is different but this was my experience!
i will buy this shampoo again and again

Minu from New jersey
I love this shampoo. A good product for treating dandruff and the tea tree oil makes your hair soft
Got my scalp and hair back!!!😊
Amy from New Mexico
I love this tea tree shampoo and conditioner!! I have dry scalp with oily hair and this works great for it. I have wavy dark brown hair and with this brand it doesn't frizz and doesn't affect my wavy hair. I no longer have flaky hair days and I love the tea tree smell. If you don't like the tea tree smell I would recommend the lavender version.
I will buy this produce again
Heather from Michigan
