I use this with my clinical strenght shampoo. its helped a lot with my dandruff. i had serious flakes n couldn't bare it any longer, i bought these 2 products last month n I'm pretty happy. i apply about a tablespoon of this straight on top of my head where i get most flakes , if i don't use this i get flakes again. ..it feels a bjt minty n fresh on the head not overwhelming though, its a thick conditioner like texture.
