Works to manage slight flare ups

published

I’ve used this for as long as I can remember for psoriasis on my scalp. Used regularly it does help manage the inflammation for me, however, recently I needed medication to manage a bad flare up. I will still use it when needed as it’s worked for years. It doesn’t smell great so be sure to use a nice normal shampoo and conditioner to counteract that.

Easily available and effective

published

Suffered from severe psoriasis since my teen years, this product works wonders and actually helps tackle psoriasis. While it is rather pricey for a shampoo - $13 as of October 2021, it is readily available from Coles / Woolworths and does the job!

Ignore the cheaper, Redwin Coal Tar Fragrance next to it on the shelf. While that one is 1/3 of the price ($4), it contains zero coal tar, compared to T/Gel which has 0.5% w/v coal tar.

Purchased in at Coles for $13.

Amazing Product!

published

I bought this for my partner who has had a dry flaky scalp since before we met (over 2 years) and after only ONE wash, I'd say 95% (if not more) of the flaky skin was gone! Absolutely amazing results! I'll see how it goes long term but short term, I am absolutely wowed! He's been using head and shoulders for a long time which I've heard just aids in irritating the scalp so he'll definitely never use that again after discovering T-Gel!
It's pretty pricey, but so worth it if it keeps the dry skin away.

Does the job

published

Decided to use this shampoo for psoriasis on my scalp as my prescribed shampoo cannot be used more than one month.
This helps with the itching and removing flakes from the scalp. Although I still get a little flaking and itching. It doesn't smell great (smokey/petrol smell).
The good thing is I can't smell it after conditioning with a natural conditioner.
This can be drying, so make sure you have a good conditioner.

Purchased in at Coles.

works ok

published

aids in control of psoriasis of the scalp but doesn't get it under control. If used regularly it does help somewhat. The only thing is it has a terrible smell.

Relieved a very itchy scalp

published

I used this twice a week for a month to relieve my itchy scalp. Between the days I'd use this shampoo, I used my usual shampoo once a day. It worked well and my scalp ended up not itchy anymore, less red than before, and I had much less dandruff than before.

Yet to see results

Have only used this a couple times, haven’t noticed a difference yet so we’ll see.. One thing I’d like to say is it literally smells like petrol!?! Is that normal?

Perfect for Seborrheic Dermatitis Sufferers!

published

All this time I thought I just had really bad dandruff issues. And then one day my face started to flake like it was winter in summer. Found out I have Seborrheic Dermatitis (like Psoriasis but not as bad) and tried this product.

IT IS AMAZAZING! I use a little amount everyday since I have short hair and together with a conditioner, this works and I've never had any issues with an itchy flakey scalp anymore.

It smells a little bit nasty but not bad, it doesn't have any added scents and I guess the smell comes from the Tar in the shampoo.

Definitely recommend it to anyone that has the same condition as me.

Really Good!

published

Alright so everything worked like a charm for me and it cleared predominately all of my Seborrheic Dermatitis, however, the smell is putrid. But I have found a solution! I used this shampoo with a really nice smelling conditioner (since you're not supposed to condition your scalp anyway) and they both cancel each other out!!

Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo is an effective therapeutic treatment designed to help control the scalp itching and flaking symptomatic of scalp psoriasis, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis and common dandruff.

The clear amber formula starts working on contact to help control itching and flaking from the first use and continues to work for hours even after the shampoo is rinsed off, leaving hair looking healthy and manageable.

Features

Ingredients

Directions

  • Use in adults and children above 2 years of age.
  • Use for the control of itching and flaking associated with dandruff, psoriasis, eczema and seborrhoeic dermatitis.
  • Wet hair thoroughly, massage the shampoo into your scalp, lather it, leaving it on your hair and scalp for several minutes, then rinse and repeat.
  • Helps control psoriasis, seborrhoeic, dermatitis and dandruff.

Product Warnings
