I've tried a variety of products to combat dandruff and nothing worked – until this. After a few days I noticed my issues have pretty much gone. The smell isn't great. It's quite strong, kind of old tobacco with an overtly medicinal punch to it. But when mixed and washed out with conditioner I find the lingering scent oddly pleasant. Even if the smell didn't wash out I'd still recommend this product because, it actually works!
I've tried a few different anti-dandruff shampoos and this has definitely been the best. It does have a very strong smell. If you like smoky, peaty Scotch, you'll have no problem with it. But it does a great job at controlling dandruff and it leaves my hair feeling smooth all day too.
Having tried supermarket shampoos claiming to fight dandruff to no avail, I decided to splurge on a different brand, and I'm glad I did. This product is actually inexpensive when you consider the size of the bottle and how little of this is necessary. Does not smell great but the smell washes out with conditioner and the fragrance isn't the reason that anyone would buy this shampoo.
