Rated 3.98 out of 5 stars
My daughter bought me this, and she told me to leave a review if I liked it.
I have a really dry scalp that I tend to have constant dandruff. It's been 5 days since I started and I'm still using this product, I am seeing an improvement. It doesn't leave my hair feeling greasy but it feels moisturized, my wife has also seen an improvement. I use it right after I shower and dry my hair, she told me to use its everyday morning and night but I only use it at night.
I am sure there are many people who will very much appreciate & enjoy these products but my reasons for not liking them myself are strictly due to my own personal preferences.. The shampoo is very thin in consistency. I've had to us quite a few handfuls to feel like it thoroughly washed my very thin hair, which by the way is barely shoulder length. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO SCENT TO ANY OF THESE ITEMS. I'm sure to most people, this wouldn't be a deal breaker by any means. But I personally only enjoy beauty products that possess a decent fragrance. I very much enjoy when my hair still smells nice even a few days after washing with my other shampoos. This was my biggest gripe while testing these items. The shampoo cleaned well after using a large amount of product. It does not lather or disperse well. It made my hair feel a little "straw-like" which I did not like at all considering that my hair has always been ridiculously healthy. I must say that the conditioner worked well without having to use as much product compared to the shampoo. It left my hair soft and clean. Not greasy or oily like other conditioners can make it feel. For the scalp treatment, I have not noticed any effects what so ever after using for a few weeks. I'm hopefull that it does work for others. Although I am an avid user of The Ordinarys other products, unfortunately I will personally not be purchasing any of these particular items myself.

Just be sure to stay on the scalp, it makes the hair a bit oily if not.

I have an unknown skin condition that causes my skin, especially my scalp, to react to almost all hair products. I don't have dandruff or anything, but have experienced some hair loss the past couple years, even going so far as to lose clumps of my hair after using certain products. A painful, burning scalp full of pustules has been my normal life for the past 15 years. Probably more. Nothing any doctor has prescribed has ever helped me (except for one pill that I had to stop taking because it caused other side effects, but that is besides the point.). I tried this out of desperation. If I use it immediately out of the bath it will stop my scalp from becoming inflamed for a couple days as well as stop the pustules from forming when paired with the only "safe" conditioner and shampoo that I have ever found. My situation isn't like that of most customers who will use this product because of my mystery skin condition. It still is an essential product for me though. I have really enjoyed it. I would be sad if it were discontinued. I think it has zinc in it which might be what my scalp particularly likes about it. I was told to try a medicated zinc shampoo by my derm and did that for awhile, but at one point it went out of stock for a few months and I had nothing to use. I saw this product was clear and milky from zinc and looked like the shampoo in a way. I decided I had to take a risk and try it. To be honest, this scalp serum worked way better than the medicated shampoo ever did for me. Not sure exactly what about it helps me so much, but that is what I suspect. Thank you to the team of people who made this particular product!

First off, this isnt a "hair" product for dry hair. It's for your scalp. Second, its going to make most people's hair look greasy…because its intended to moisturize your SCALP. It's not
necessarily intended to be used during the day, its reccomended at for use at NIGHT, to be washed out in the morning.
I'm so so tired of reading reviews on products that have absolutely nothing to do with the products but instead revolve around people that have absolutely no idea what the products are intended for and people that use the products incorrectly. Thats a you problem, not a product problem.
I will also note that I haven't even gotten a chance to use this product yet and almost didn't based off the star rating until actually reading the reviews and realizing that 90% of them don't even apply to the product itself so I'm giving it a shot today. I gave it a five star rating because I think the ratings deserve to be offset from the other dumb reviews.

this voxbox couldn't have come at a better time I have never used this product but I have been experiencing a very dry scalp along with major dandruff I have only tried this once hoping it will give me some relief
aferxx from undisclosed
I used this always on dry hair. To be completely honest, It feels good on the scalp but do I see any difference? No. It's not a product I would recommend. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either.
lisar20a6 from undisclosed
I didn't see any difference in my hair using this product. Not sure what the intent of the serum was, but literally no difference. Don't waste your money on this.
valfl from undisclosed
This is a product that you apply to dry hair. I was afraid it would make my hair look greasy, but it didn't. While I really noticed a difference in my hair while using the shampoo and especially the conditioner, I didn't notice a difference in my hair with this product. Maybe this product is better suited for someone with dry hair or a dry scalp. I don't really have that issue. The product was ok, but not great for me

This stuff is amazing! I swim everyday and because of the chlorinated water I sometimes deal with irritated dry scalp. This product is moisturizing and soothing. I highly recommend this product and will continue using this serum in my daily beauty arsenal.

I want to start by saying I can't put a lot of products on my hair that doesn't make it oily. So I didn't have high hopes for my hair. I have to be careful when I put heat protection spray on or hair spray. So this product was just not for me.

I live in the high desert area so my scalp gets very dry in the summertime creating dandruff. I put this on every night and noticed little to no dandruff now.
Edvin from undisclosed
I bought the product about a month ago. So far I used about half of the bottle. It didn't help my scalp at all. Completely ineffecitve. However, I can recommend to the people with dry scalp the multi-peptide serum.

After trying everything and I mean EVERYTHING! I finally decided to give this a try for my dry flaky itchy scalp and OMG! Worked right away. I have psoriasis and I felt like nothing was working, this has helped my scalp feel so much better. Just put a few drops every night and it has also helped my hair grow after post partum hair loss.
esmee from undisclosed
Purchased this a few weeks ago along with a lot of The Ordinary's other products and this one might be my fave! Already seeing a difference and I have long suffered from nonstop dandruff and a very dry itchy scalp. I've noticed by scalp practically doesn't itch or flake anymore. Also, because of the texture and density of my hair the 'greasiness' of the product doesn't bother me at all. It's pretty much perfect for my hair and scalp

I am finally considering wearing dark clothes again! I have a permanently itxhy, scaly eczema scalp - nothing works on it except this. I use it twice a day - I have short dry thick hair so it doesn't affect my hair at all. It just makes me and my scalp so happy!
caly from Oakland, CA
i've gone through almost half the bottle. i have very dry hair even before bleaching and aging. I can put this stuff on dry hair and it doesn't make it greasy at all. My hair needs hydration and I've tried this with wet, damp, or spritzed hair, before bed and just after showering. I've seen zero long term improvement and little to no added hydration at time of application. It does slightly tame frizz just when applied but even that doesn't last. I am a deciem devotee and had high hopes but it's a no for me.
Mar from Your mom
My hair was falling out in chunks so I got this to try and help and it works a lot. I would recommend it to anyone. I'm not too sure how it works with curly hair but for a straight hair it does work a lot, so yeah I would definitely recommend it to my friends and to anyone who asked.

I bought this product in conjunction with their HairSulphate 4% Cleanser for Body and Hair and ConditionerBehentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner and so far my scalp has never been healthier. I have suffered from Seborrheic Dermatitis that started showing up the last few years because of inflammation. My scalp would be so itchy and dry constantly that my shirts would get rained on by scaly dandruff. The serum itself makes my hair oily, however, I only put it once a day before going to bed. So I don't really mind the oily hair. I just rinse it off the next morning with the cleanser and conditioner.
zeper from NYC
great for those with a shaved head , buzzcut or short hair. made my short hair soft and I dont have dandruff anymore, but I got similar results just by using a silicone scalp brush. will enjoy it while I use it up, but wont repurchase

I bought this hair serum for dry scalp (non-dandruff) and i have eczema on the lower part of my scalp. It doesn't bother me as much in the summer but it's dry in the winter time. It is not greasy at all if you use a drop only on each section of hair. When i used it on my problem area i found it so soothing. On the dry patches it seems to have taken it away!

I have fine straight hair and like most people with fine hair, it becomes greasy/dirty looking pretty quickly. Last summer I thought I had the every other day wash down but come winter my hair would look dirty at the end of the wash day. After some research I discovered that dry weather (which dries out your skin) actually causes your scalp to produce excess sebum which is why it looks dirty faster in cold weather.
ANYWAY...HOLY GRAIL. I put this on my scalp the night before I wash my hair and my hair stays looking fresh for the most part for two days.
Tri from PA
So im not sure if people arent reading but the bottle literally says use at bedtime, probably because it makea your hair really greasy. Honestly just use the night before your wash days and youll be fine. The product really has helped me and feels great when applied.

I bought this as an after treatment for scalp microneedling. My scalp is usually normal but microneedling causes dryness and flaking. It was suggested to use some type of oil (castor oil) which I used and it works but your hair is an oily mess. I use a lot of The Ordinary's products, so when I saw this I thought I would give it a try. I love this product, it moisturizes the scalp and takes the itch away but the best part is no oily mess!

Clean products. They aren't too heavy and felt very cleansing and moisturizing on your skin. I did feel like the serum for the hair was a little watery
Nikki from undisclosed
Accidently purchased meant to by the hair density treatment because I've noticed my hair thinning, have used for 3 weeks now and its relieved my dry itch scalp. Feels cool and moisturised, also noticed my dandruff appears to be all gone. I have used more than recommended some nights, and my hairs never felt greasy the next day. May purchase again! Hasn't helped with hair growth though...
