A shopper asked: Does this product leave your hair & scalp oily even after you shampoo it out? Is it okay for long, thick hair? Oct 30, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Julie L: Definitely does not leave your hair and scalp oily. It leaves it feeling tingly and clean. OK for long thick hair. I have an oily scalp and use it to control the oil as well as maintain a healthy scalp. Only criticism I have is the way it is dispensed. They should put it in a tube with a long thin opening so I can get it directly on to the scalp. It's difficult to apply it directly to the scalp where it's meant to treat without getting a lot of it on your hair. Nov 29, 2013
Reply to Julie Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Sarah G: I have long, thick hair and the product works great!! It is grainy and I rub it into my scalp. (Kind of like putting a body scrub on your skin). It washes out easily and I noticed a different after using it 1 time! I spent a lot of money on Tgel, Head and shoulders, and Tree oil kinds of shampoo and this one has worked the best! Hope that helps. Oct 30, 2013

Elizabeth A: This product does not leave my hair or scalp oily, even after shampoo. My scalp feels like I dunked it in mint. I do have long and thick hair and the only complaint I have is that it is very difficult to rinse the product out, even after using shampoo. Oct 30, 2013
