Excellent

My teenage son been using for years. He prefers this to other brands. The $13 bottle lasts 6mths +. It is a nice smell (similar to coal tar), which evaporates as soon as hair is dry. Keeps the grease out of his hair and off his face (no pimples face/forehead). This product is completely SAFE to use and the majority of hair products have preservative in them that retards microbial growth, so try not to pay attention to the scare tactics of some people about this product. Show details

The best for dermatitis on your scalp

This is the best thing I’ve come across. It got rid of all my sons dermatitis on his scalp. It was so bad that now he is free from it cause of this shampoo. I tried so many other products that the dr recommended to me and I gave it to a friend of mine when we didn’t need it anymore. It was for her and her daughter and she couldn’t believe it worked as she tried many other things for her and her daihjyer And nothing has stopped the itch or gotten rid of their psoriasis on the scalp. I’m about to purchase this for other son as I’ve noticed some has poped up on his scalp fingers crossed it helps for him also. If I could give more starts for this product I definitely would. Show details

Smells like a fresh paved road on my scalp, that can’t be good, seeping into my blood stream

Not only does this stuff smell horrific, but it also has DMDM, which is a leading ingredient to cancer Show details

Love it. Saved my life. Can't live without it

Very mild on very sensitive facial skin, not like other shampoos that cause stinging. Totally controls dandruff. Lovely clean tar smell. Have been using it for 25 years. Show details

The only shampoo that works!

After having dandruff issues for a very long time I found this product and so relieved it’s working. I have tried everything else in the market from cheap to high end products! This stuff works wonders. Show details

Psoriasis #1 hair solution

This shampoo saved me almost my whole life, since I discovered it. It does clean through the hair, soothes the itching, and helps to calm down the flare, thanks to this shampoo I was able to live normal life. However, I know that the 'Original formula' that is sold in the US is different from the 'Therapeutic formula' that is sold elsewhere, Original is darker and more thick and I think helps me more... Unfortunately now I live in another country and can't find it here. Show details

Works to manage slight flare ups

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. Show details

Easily available and effective

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. Show details

Can you color your hair when using T-Gel?
I know it may lighten the color a bit after washing your hair.

Thank you!

Hi Lynnie. I colour my hair and it hasn’t been too much of an issue. The colour perhaps doesn’t last as long as usual (although really not much of a difference). And worth it to me as the benefit from T-gel has been major.

Thank you so much. I’ve just started using T-Gel and it works great and it seems to work fine with hair color. Many thanks again for your input!

The smell is not the most pleasant and the product can dry out the scalp. The product can also turn grey or bleached blonde hair orange.
