Rated 4 out of 5 by tdbry Best I've Tried
Like other reviewers here, I was a little unsure about how to use this product. It doesn't lather and it seems like it might not be doing anything at first - but after 30 seconds or so of trying to work it directly into my scalp (avoiding the ends), I can feel it tingling. I used this for the first time after several days of itching and flaking and was amazed at how well it worked - I didn't need any treatment again for over a week.I follow it with a pyrithione zinc shampoo and find it much more effective than the shampoo alone. This has worked better for me than any other dry scalp product I've tried.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sirah Just try it! It's worth it.
The Kiehl's Micro-Exfoliating Treatment is the only thing that has actually worked for me. Yes, as with anything, you need to give it a few applications before you see a change and, of course, everyone's body is different. But it only took me about a week to see some serious results! I use it along with the Scalp Purifying shampoo and it's amazing. Plus they're both gentle on your hair. NO greasy feeling. NO dry brittle split ends. It's just great. Try it. PLUS, if it doesn't work, Kiehl's has an amazing return policy! Soooo there's really no downside.

Not sure I understand how this product does any good. I have short hair but the exfoliating beads seem to dissipate before I can even manage to get it on my scalp. Using my fingers to scrub my scalp seems more effective.
If you are looking for an effective dandruff control product, try out Scalp Purifying Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. I think that product is extremely effective and is decently priced.
Like all products, some are better for others and some are not. Get a sample of this product at your neighborhood Kiehl's before buying. You'll thank me.

The Kiehl's fanatic that I am, I am always looking for new products that will help me get others hooked as well.
My boyfriend struggles with dandruff and is always trying different combinations of shampoos and treatments. So imagine my joy when this product came along.
Wrong. It's a GREAT idea, but it just doesn't work. His head was instantly more flaky after the first use, and it took forever to rinse out. (His hair is buzzed...I cannot imagine how people with longer hair use this.)
Rated 3 out of 5 by KIDAirbag Feeling confused
It sounded wonderful in theory but I was as little let down. I had to use a LOT of it just to coat my entire scalp. However, I do have a lot of hair (and an abnormally enormous head). It said to apply it with dry or damp hair- I tried it dry first and found that by the time I worked my fingers through my dry hair to my scalp, most of it ended up in my hair on the way there. When I tried it damp I had the same experience. It did make my scalp tingly but only after I rinsed it out before shampooing. I remained optimistic thinking that I'd see the AMAZING and mind blowing effects when I styled my hair. It didn't make my hair feel any softer or healthy looking. In fact, it felt kind of frizzy, dry, and a little dirty. I thought MAYBE it didn't rinse it all out but when I tried it a second time I made absolute sure that it was rinsed out and I still had the same results. Am I missing here? Am I not doing it right? Slightly disappointed and really confused.
I also have to say that I am a lifetime customer of kiehl's and every single thing I bought I can't say enough about. The skin care is the best in the world! I've only been disappointed in the hair products.

This works better when my hair is shorter -- it's easier to apply then. Scalp itchiness is noticeably less. I apply it when my hair is dry and use it 2-3 per week. I haven't noticed any issues with rinsing it out of my hair.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Newyorking Good product difficult to rinse off
I read reviews here that complained about this product's being hard to put on. I had no issues. I thought the texture must be too thick to put on from the reviews, but I had no issues. What I had a challenge with was rinsing it off. The product has small particles that stay in the scalp and you have to rinse and scrub it off from all areas to have it completely come off. It is minty but not so minty that you can't use it. It has a mild cooling effect. Overall I am very satisfied with this product. I use Kiehl's Olive Oil shampoo and conditioner, but my hair is best when I use this product, then shampoo (any shampoo works), then Argan Oil smoothing pak. My hair is so so soft and silky for a few days. Usually when I sleep my hair either becomes dull the next day or loses a bit of the silkiness. When I do this combination my hair is very silky for a few days, and I love running my hands through it! I used the pak separately and this product with a different conditioner; while the results are very good I find that my hair is the silkiest if I use this with the Argan Oil hair pak. I bought this to try since there were no trial samples available, I am glad I ordered it. Initially I thought it was just hype but with a few tries I do see a positive impact on my hair.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tea4two Amazing Product!
I bought this product for both my Father and I for Christmas both of us are amazed with the results! At first it was hard to find a way to get around my long hair and actually to my scalp, but if you section long hair it is better. The tingling feeling feels nice and it has a nice smell to it. After just a few uses even the feel of your hair is better! I would recommend this to anyone who is experiencing any form of dandruff.
