Great product

After only a few uses my scalp no longer feels itchy. I have dry skin and live in a very cold dry climate.

Will keep using

I have seborrheic dermatitis. My scalp is usually itchy and flakey. I've been using this product for about 3 weeks now. It helps reduce the itching and amount of flakes I see. It's also very convenient and easy to use.

Bit dissapointed

I've been using this product for a few weeks now, twice a week, but I can't say I've noticed much difference. I was really hoping that it would be a miracle product that would help my scalp, but unfortunately, no luck.

Side note, if I use the product and then only rinse out my hair (without shampoo), it leaves my hair a bit greasy.

A life saver

As a person who suffers from dandruffs but also suffers from Dermatillomania it is a never-ending story full of cry, itchiness, scars, and blood. Every product I tried to use eighter did nothing, worsen the situation, or made the application process a nightmare like putting pure alcohol or salt on an open wound.

I am using it once two times a week, Depending on how is my picking situation. It is relaxing, hydrating, and stops itchiness for enough time to let my scalp heal.

Works for flakes, not for oil

I have long, normal to oily hair, with a very flakey scalp.

I saw immediate effects with the first use with the reduction of flakes. I have been looking for an alternative to Head & Shoulders as I think it has been drying out my hair. I have also heard there are ingredients in H&S that can be harmful to your health, though I don’t know if the ingredients in this are any safer … Inky List - care to comment?

I did not find this helped with oil or itch reduction at all. If anything I found that my hair became greasier a little faster. I typically wash my hair every other day, and on day two when using this product, I feel I have to make a conscious effort not to touch my hair as it feels a little oilier than usual.

I would also recommend you do your best to THOROUGHLY wash out the product, especially if using a sulfate free shampoo. On more than one occasion I have had to get back in the shower after my hair has started to dry to shampoo again because the product has left so much residue in my hair.

It also seems like it’s going to be quite expensive. I have been using it twice a week and am going to try reducing to once to see if that will be enough, but comparatively to anti-dandruff shampoos which also suggest using once a week, this is double if not more in price.

If the claim was only to reduce flakes I would give 4 stars. Half a star off for the residue and having to shampoo my hair 3-4 times to get it out, half a star off for the price.

All this being said, I…

The INKEY List USA

Hello Asuz! Thank you for your feedback. The ingredients used in all our skin and haircare are completely safe to use, and have no potentially harmful effects. If your scalp is oily and itchy, it may actually be on the dry side, and producing excess oils to overcompensate. You may wish to take a look at a hydrating scalp treatment or mask 🖤

Pretty good

Calmed down my flakes a lot, but didn’t get rid of them.
