I mean i would have to switch my shampoo/cond up every 2-3 days because it seemed like if i used the same kind too long my scalp became irritated. It wasn't dandruff, it was like red welts all over my scalp and they would just sort of sting. I finally had enough. SOOooo searched all over and all the products i could seem to find were more for dandruff (I did try dandruff shampoos too not knowing what this was and they didn't work) so I talked my friend who went to beauty school and she told me to try this. It is a bummer because it's non-scented, which makes sense since it's for a sensitive scalp, but my scalp thanks me for it. It's SOOOo much better! Works Great!
