So great! Within one use, the itch disappeared. Now its been two weeks and my flakes are almost completely gone! This shampoo has saved my scalp.
I love this shampoo. It definitely helps eliminate dandruff and the scent invigorating. The reason it has 4 curls instead of 5 is that it left my hair slightly hard and that caused problems with tangling. I have to do a pre-wash with coconut oil or shea butter before using to soften my hair enough. If you don't then you have to slather on the conditioner. And at $14 a bottle, than can get pricey.
I have a bad case of seborrheic dermatitis. This is the only shampoo that controls the itch without having to resort to sulfates and other harmful chemicals. Though it doesn't lather much, it does leave my hair squeaky clean. I don't find that it strips my hair, but I use a very small amount on my scalp only. (I use lots of conditioner afterward, anyway.) I also like the natural scent.
My hair is a mixture of medium/coarse texture, with high porosity, normal elasticity, and high density (very thick). This shampoo left my hair feeling stripped and squeaky. In Curlmart, it says the shampoo is sulfate-free, but I found sodium C14-16 olefin sulfate in the ingredient list, which from what I've read is a surfactant curlies should avoid in shampoo. If you use the Max Green Alchemy Scalp Rescue conditioner, which is very moisturizing, it does seem to balance out the effect of the shampoo, but I'd rather have a gentler shampoo for my hair, even though I really like all the natural ingredients in the product.
Good stuff. I have periodic bouts of dry, itchy scalp. The mainstream shampoos smell like the floor of a mechanic's - fumes and oil, toxic and nauseating. Not this shampoo - it has a great scent that doesn't linger, and it doesn't strip your hair (you know what I mean). It smells like the best massage you've ever had. Now, I do follow with the conditioner, and they're a great team. Tracy and Hepburn on your head!
This is a great shampoo. If I feel like I need to clarify, I can almost always get away with using this. It is much gentler on my hair than a clarifying shampoo and it almost always gives me the same results. A word of warning though, it is quite heavily fragranced (essential oils). I don't find it lingers though.
