The bad outweighs the good


I bought t gel as i have been suffering from a flaky scalp for some time. . When I used it, i noticed it had a very strong, sort of smoky moth bally smell. I dont care how well this product works. I could not get the smell out for 3 days. It is nauseating and really strong. Just a warning if you're sensitive to smells like me, you might want to consider an alternative option.
not too expensive
horrible smell, small bottle

I suffer from seborrhoeic eczema and this really did very little to help with the embarassing flakes of dry skin from my scalp. It did not help the itchiness either. Have used this when my condition is not bad and it works better then but when the condition has flared up this does nothing at all.
It slightly eased the problem when not flared up but still had lots of flakes
