I absolutely love this shampoo and conditioner! We just recently moved into a new home that has well water that is very harsh for my hair and head. It was always so dry and itchy. Within a week of using this product, it felt healthy again. My scalp was no longer itchy after day 2 use. The shampoo and conditioner smell wonderful, too, which is a big plus! ...read more

I was so scared to try this at first because I was afraid it would tear my skin and that I'd never get all the particles out. Thank goodness I went ahead and tried it anyway! This has a gel like consistency and the exfoliating particles melt/dissolve with enough hot water. My scalp felt so nice and tingly afterwards, and my hair was soft and glossy when it dried. I think this is a great product to use if you want a really fresh feeling after you wash your hair and if you're trying to get some growth to happen as it stimulates your scalp. ...read more

I have been having scalp issues through the summer. I wear my hair up in a bun on top of my head and have been going between the pool and going on runs outside. I have developed itchy bumps in the ends of my hair follicles. This product was one of the most highly recommended products on Ulta to treat the itchy ness. The product runs about $18 so it is a little more pricy. However after just one use this solved the itchy bumps problem. It has a cooking effect that is like rubbing icy hot on your scalp. It feels amazing and calms the scalp. It also has a great peppermint scent that I feel helps relaxe me. The product was a great buy and even makes my hair super soft. I will continue to buy in the future. ...read more

I originally thought that this product was weird. Once I used it and actually followed the directions, I realized how amazing it was. This is not an every day shampoo, it is more of a "When you need to washout buildup" or "you just got your hair dyed and your scalp itches". It is so soothing on my scalp which gets easily irritated. You just take a small palm full and lather it up a bit, then rub it onto your scalp and massage it in. It leaves my hair squeaky clean and my scalp feels incredible.  ...read more
