It’s was ok but I needed to use it for at least a month


Smell is not pleasant and it dries your scalp but in saying that I have used every shampoo on the market and it one is the best one out there for me

Purchased in March 2021 at Woolworths for $15.00.

works ok


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.

Purchased in January 2019 at Coles Supermarkets.

Practical vs Fancy.


"Beauty is pain". If you've heard this statement you might understand. Growing up I had to use T Gel for years as it was the only thing that would stop my psoriasis. Once I started getting my hair dyed blonde, though, the T Gel would turn my hair orange. I wouldn't recommend this for people with blonde hair, but if you have psoriasis this eases the pain and the psoriasis will almost disappear. (I'm pretty sure they use to do a shampoo/conditioner combined & liquid was white.)

i purchased this product after contemplating as i had tryed several other products . I thought it would cure the itch for good i am still using it so I guess its ok. It does have a distinctive smell, but i find it to be not so irritating. worth a try.
Stops the itching for a short while. Concerntrated product so you only need to use a small amount. It lathers up quite well. It does cure the problem immediately.
Thought it would cure the problem longer. Short term fix. Makes my scalp feel a little tender and red after washing. Of course the price is high.
