I think that this may be the most effective anti-dandruff shampoo I have tried to date. (I don’t mean that I tried to date it, these shampoos are notoriously difficult when it comes to dating. Completely emotionally retarded. Cold.) No, this shampoo is possibly the best I have tried so far when it comes to immediate relief for itchy flaky scalp syndrome. It contains salicylic acid and willow extract to exfoliate the scalp and it really works! You have to make sure that you leave the lather on for a good few minutes, so it’s not ideal if you’re in a bit of a rush, but if you can spare the time then the benefits are incredible. I don’t think that my scalp has ever felt so clear and clean.
The formula’s quite odd – very liquidy – so you have to make sure that your hair is thoroughly wet through and ready to lather up before you start pouring out the shampoo, but once it’s in the hair it doesn’t take too much effort to get a really good lather going. Phyto recommend that you use Phytheol Intense as a one month intensive treatment, two or three times a week, but the bottle would last you longer than one month, I would have thought. It has been formulated to treat the most severe cases of dandruff and itchy scalp, so it’s well worth a try if you’re a sufferer – it soothed my itchiness almost immediately and my roots have been far less greasy since I began using it.
It costs £10.50, but for some reason is only £8.50 on BeautyBay here: http://tidd.ly/6397e0bc
