The best so far
Purchased

It hasn't gotten rid of all my itching and flakes, but it's the only thing that's come close so far in my search. I've tried t/gel, stinky tar shampoos from pharmacies, head and shoulders, body shop ginger shampoo... all of them lose out to this shampoo. It definitely reduces the itching and flaking more than anything else. It also leaves my hair more manageable and less frizzy somehow, which is always a bonus! It's just a shame about the price.

Great for my scalp
Purchased

I suffer from a very dry scalp and apart from Polytar (which is now out of manufacture) and Coal Tar scalp treatments on prescription nothing else keeps the dryness at bay. This shampoo is great which is why I purchased the full size. It's not cheap but to be itch free and build up free it is worth it. I've tried T-gel etc and many SLS free but none are as good as this. It is not chemical free, which can irritate some, but for me with a scalp comb this works. Wish the conditioner was in stock.

Worth the money!
Purchased

Quite pricey for the amount of product you get. But it's a great product and definitely worth every penny! Redeemed this as a gift from birchbox points which makes it more awesome!
