You say: “I was fortunate enough to get a sample of this in my beautyheaven goodie bag and I’m impressed! All the gunk and flaky yuck is gone after one use. It has a minty smell that reminds me of tea tree oil and it leaves your hair moisturized, shiny and soft without it being too oily. My sample lasted me three uses though so I do wonder if wears out it’s effectiveness after regular use like my usual anti dandruff shampoo but I’m willing to get a full size bottle and give it a try.” – bettina44
