Rated 3 out of 5 by from out of stock Your scalp feels invigorated. The gooey scrubby gel rinses right out and gives your hair volume at the crown. The overall rating is because for $20 the tube is little.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Quite Perfect I really wanted to love this product. It does work, it smells great, and it supplements my haircare, but the amount you actually have to use in order to disperse it on your scalp is way more than it needs to be. If there was a little bit more oiliness or spreadability with the product, I would rate it 5 stars, but it sort of just sticks to your head wherever you apply it. I would need to use half the tube to actually cover my scalp. I will say that if you have dry patches that you want to specifically target, this is the right product for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed bag. Things change. When I realized that their dandruff shampoo was discontinued (because I bought it in extreme bulk come the apocalypse, it was the only one that worked), I was really annoyed. The clerk in my local store was so sympathetic and recommended this and the Cedarwood shampoo. I gotta say, there could definitely be more bang for your buck but it's really good. I like the remnant feeling it leaves. The texture is weird but my dandruff stays at bay. This is a solid preventative tool and the shampoo is probably my favorite Kiehl's product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scalp products I've found I have a very dry scalp and this product is the best thing I've used for it. The exfoliating beads clean the scalp and the argan oil hydrates it. As others have mentioned, it is difficult to apply - I part my hair with a fine toothed comb, massage the product into the scalp visible in the part, then move the part over an inch or two and repeat. It takes a bit of time but it so worth the results. I also leave it on for up to 20 minutes to really let the argan oil work. The only disappointing thing about this is the size of the bottle - I go through it in less than two months using it once a week. It's a little expensive but worth it to me since it's the only thing that works - I just wish I could buy a bigger bottle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best stuff I've tried I have a naturally dry scalp, and when I have used procuts like Head and Shoulders, while it works, it takes a couple of weeks and dries my hair out in the process. I have used the Kiehl's product only 4 times in the past month and just recently went to get my hair done, and my hair dresser mentioned that my scalp looked a lot better and didn't even know what I was trying. I love the tingle this product leaves on your scalp because it actually feels like it is working and soothing. I don't have nearly as many flakes in my hair and don't feel itchy in certain spots anymore. I would recommend this to anyone to try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.
