  • Most people have had or will experience some degree of dandruff during their life. If you have a flaky/itchy scalp, don’t be embarrassed: you are not alone and there are many effective products available to treat it. ‘Dandruff’ describes scalp flaking. However, there are various degrees of severity ranging from common dandruff, i.e. loose or tight flakes, to more severe seborrheic dermatitis.
  • The most common type of dandruff is ‘pityriasis capitis simplex’ or ‘pityriasis steatoides’. It usually comes and goes and you may find it flares up under stress. Mild to moderate dandruff is easily treated with over-the-counter shampoos, toners and scalp masks.
  • Possible causes of dandruff can be: poor hygiene and infrequent shampooing, a diet rich in fatty, salty or sugary foods, cheese, white wine and champagne, hormonal changes and fluctuations, psychological or physical stress, cold or dry weather and climate, pre-menstrual syndrome.
  • If you have a mild to moderate flaky and/or itchy scalp, it’s a good idea to look at your diet and lifestyle. The condition of your scalp can often be improved by making simple changes. Try to restrict dairy products for a few weeks as dairy can exacerbate flaking and eczema. Also, cut back on foods rich in salt, ‘bad fats’ and sugar. Taking time out for yoga, meditation, general relaxation and fitness can help manage stress levels and can sometimes reduce the severity and frequency of dandruff.

  • A miracle

    I struggled for years with a itchy, flaky scalp which became infected at times. I tried everything, including some steroids from the gp. Nothing solved it. When I got pregnant I couldn't use tar based products so someone recommended this shampoo. I can honestly say it had changed my life. No longer do I feel embarrassed by my scalp and no long am I constantly itching.
    If I go back to other shampoos it starts up again

    I have to be careful with conditioners because they set me off too. I recommend the no scent no colour conditioner. It doesn't seem to irritate me.

    Unfortunately, after using this product twice, my itchy scalp has been transformed into a red, sore ,in need of medical attention scalp. More than disappointed with this shampoo,, especially as it's not the cheapest on the market. I do not recommend that you buy this product. I didn't want to give it any stars but had to give it one to be able to submit my review.

  • Worth it!!

    This shampoo is really worth the investment if you want an itch and flake free scalp. I don't use it all the time as it is quite intense but great if I want a strong wash.

  • Amazing product!

    I have suffered for many years with seborrheic dermatitis in the scalp. I have tried home remedies, consultant prescriptions and nothing has worked. Although the big version of this shampoo is expensive it's lasts so long and it works leaving my scalp flake free and clear!
    Really recommend
