  • 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.

  • Would never use anything else!

    I have been using this shampoo daily for about ten years and would now never use anything else. Every other shampoo I've tried, even those meant to be for sensitive scalps, results in a terrible itching and peeling scalp, even after one use, whereas with this product my scalp is perfectly healthy. There are undoubtedly shampoos which make your hair feel softer but this is a small price to pay for the confidence of knowing your hair and shoulders are free of flakes. This product is definitely worth every penny.

  • Best shampoo ever

    I've suffered from a itchy dry scalp for years and having a baby seemed to worsen the problem. I'd tried every product under the sun and this is by far the best I have ever used. Actually incredible it soothed my scalp within 1 wash and got rid of dandruff in 2 washes. It is on the pricey side but a real godsend and totally worth it. My forever fave shampoo!

  • Saved me from itchy scalp !!!

    Overall, this is a fantastic product because it completely got rid of my itchy scalp. I have been using this shampoo for more than 2 months now but unfortunately, it dried my hair !! I love it and will keep on using it faithfully but it won't be my ONLY shampoo. I went to my hairdresser this weekend and she noticed right away how dry my hair was... I'm now alternating between 2-3 shampoos and my hair is back to it's normal healthy state and no itchy scalp !

  • Best Product ever

    I don't write reviews on many things but I am doing one for this brand.
    I have dark curly hair and suffered from psoriasis on my scalp, I went the doctor and many others for advice and thry gave me shampoo...in the end they all worked for sometime but when the bottle ran out I went back to ordinary shampoo products. It was getting so annoying that I would see flakes on my clothes from scratching my scalp everyday. I then found this product and haven't looked back, I found a complete difference in the first wash and the next day I wasn't scratching, I have continuously ordered more since and love it. My hair has got a better shine also. if you are wondering weather to buy this product like I was buy the smaller bottles first, honestly you won't regret your purchase. ☺
