The smell of tar in this product is quite noticeable but doesn't bother me too much surprisingly. If you hate the smell then you might can't stand this product and there are dandruff shampoos without tar smells. I bought this to target head dandruff that I had ever since I was a kid. The shampoo did help a lot with my dandruff, it is not completely gone just a few specks after a few days of no shampooing. The shampoo lathers okay, you may need more to cover your whole head and I have medium length hair that is fine. The main issue I have with this shampoo is that the first few weeks I use this I have this strange lightheadedness when I wash with it. It made me feel really weird and kind of bothers me. Another big issue is that it made my hair falls out a lot, hair will just get easily pulled out even when I had stepped out of the shower. Hair strands will fall out and littered the area I'm working on. I am very concerned, maybe it is too harsh for my head?

So I’m gonna be upfront. This shampoo literally smells like burning tires. I’ve gotten used to and even grown to like the smell but it’s definitely an acquired taste. As far as quality I can’t even say how good this is. I had chronic dandruff and this honestly cleared it and my itchy scalp up in one use. I personally like the original formula as opposed to the extra strength. I don’t feel like the results are comparable.

I love this shampoo! I suffer from dandruff which is just so embarrassing! However with this shampoo I can use it for only a matter of days and my dandruff will be 100% gone! Its actually amazing how quickly it works! The scent can be rather strong, but I have actually come to not mind it so much.

So a very long time ago when I was in Middle School, I had this horrible flaky skin in the back of my head. The pediatrician said that I actually had scalp psoriasis. She recommended the shampoo and within days it was gone. I definitely recommend this to help with that sort of thing. However it has a very pungent smell.

I have tried everything to get rid of my itchy, dry scalp. Nothing has worked until this. It does not have a nice scent but has no long lasting smell. I don’t mind the smell considering this truly works! I switch this off with my usually shampoo, using the tgel twice as much.

I bought this shampoo because I believe I have seborrheic dermatitis. My scalp itches and flakes no matter what shampoo/conditioner or products I use in my hair. The T-Gel helped calm my scalp for a few days after each use but it was back to flaking again soon after. Eventually it stopped worked altogether.

My scalp hates the winter, but this helps it be a little more tolerable. The product definitely works, my only complaint is the smell is horrible! The smell is way too strong and chemically. They just need to tone it down a few notches!

Has a really strong smell but it’s worth it. It works so well at keeping the dandruff away! I used this 2 times a week and it kept my scalp flake free. On other days I just used my normal everyday shampoo and conditioner.

It has a very strong medicinal smell and although it does help my dandruff. I still have awful itching and flaking. It could be due to other health issues but i think I’d rather use head and shoulders!

Does the "new scent" smell better than how I remember it smelling? I haven't used it in nearly 20 years, I just remember that it smelled horrific.
