This is a pre-shampoo treatment that you apply (sparingly) to your scalp at least 20 minutes before shampooing (but I try to leave it in overnight). It counteracts any dandruff or flaky skin, and balances out the scalp.
It has a pleasant essential-oily scent and works very well on my scalp. There is no itching or burning, but after I wash my hair my scalp is normalised.
I don't have any excessive dryness or dandruff, only what happens with the dry air that accompanies a regular winter, so I use this about once a week and it's enough to normalise my scalp. I don't know how this would work on excessive or chronic dandruff.
The only drawback of this is the price - it's around €20, for just 25ml or 0.8fl oz. Using it once a week has made it last about 4 months, because a little of the oil goes a long way as it's spread over the scalp through an activation of body-heat and massaging.
I've heard that combining coconut oil with a few drops of tea tree oil has the same effect, for a significantly lower cost. I haven't tried that yet, so that will be my next experiment - and to see if the two really are comparable.
Do you use a regular scalp treatment?
