I have had super super high hopes about this app. And I have bought many many products so far. This is the first one I ordered and recently received . Unfortunately, I reacted the very first time I used the shampoo with major itching. I was so helpful because I have a family member that uses the app and the shampoo. My hairdresser named an ingrediant in it (I will have to find name) that she said is reactive and she won’t use shampoo with it. I am discouraged, since it was my first purchase on this app. I’m really hoping my other purchases fare better.

Would not use daily. It made my head very itchy when I used it often. Best for weekly or even bi-weekly treatment.

Works best if left on for 10 min and then washed . Excellent product for flaky skin with no side effects . If it does not help it won’t cause any harm .sadly this is the only safest product for people with flaky scalp .

This is the only thing that actually helped my itchy, flaky scalp, unlike other dandruff shampoos that dried me out more and irritated my face. Not to mention how well this shampoo lathers and cleans! Love it!

Works really well! You definitely need to use a lot of it to get your whole scalp covered, but it certainly helps with itchy scalp and dandruff!!
