Chris G from Amazon: "I am almost done with my first bottle and I really love this shampoo. I have had stubborn dandruff for years and I have tried many different shampoos. The commercial stuff I bought at the store irritated my scalp really badly and didn't smell so good. Other shampoos smelled really bad. But this shampoo has a mild nice smell and more importantly, it works. With every daily use, I had less and less dandruff and no irritation. My hair wasn't dry and my scalp felt good too. This is an awesome product and I would definitely continue to use it and recommend it."
