Shampoo no. But tonic yes. Marks and spencer do a mini pack of all three for £15.the shampoo and conditioner are quite small but the tonic lasts forever and I find you don't need to use any styling product with it.
I use the shampoo and have done for ages now. My scalp wasn't massively itchy before, but using this makes it feel clean and not itchy at all. Tried another brand when I'd just finished a bottle but really felt the difference and went straight back. Hope you like it too!
Same as McNally - when I stop using it I get horribly itchy again. I buy it in litres to try and save a bit of money. I wish there was something cheaper to use but I haven't found anything. I do think it is great - it cured my allergic reaction to dye I had a few years back. Someone on here recommended really rubbing it in and leaving on for a few minutes too, which I think helps.
I don't think I have dandruff though as I don't have flakes, just itching.
Oh phew I was starting to think I had made a mistake. I have only used it once so far, will be washing hair again tomorrow. My scalp is still bad but wasn't expecting miracles after one go! It felt nice and hasn't made scalp sore like most others so fingers crossed! I paid £15 for 170mls!! Where can I get the best price on the litre bottle?
I usually buy litre bottles from Look Fantastic where you can often get an extra 20% off. Definitely worth going big if you like it. Like that it comes with a pump <lazy>. I use an Aveda conditioner but haven't really got an itchy scalp (anymore) so not sure what I'd recommend for that.
If you decide that you don't get on with it, a cheaper option is old fashioned Vosene (the original one). My sister says this is the only thing that has cleared her flaky scalp. She had thick layers of it but I imagine you will need to use a v good conditioner on the parts where its not flaky.
