This shampoo is great of cleaning my scalp. I started using this, because when I was wash my hair for some reason I was not able to get my scalp clean. I use conditioner to wash my hair, because it does not strip my hair of it natural oil and it does not dry out my hair. When I first try it really, clean my scalp good. I use this after few of washes with my conditioner. The only problem I had with this product is the scent. I had never smell honeysuckle before so I cannot compare this scent to the plant, so I do not know if the planet so better or not.
