    Only thing that I have found that works for itchiness!

    I have an oily scalp with a tendency to gain flakes. I use a store-bought anti-flake and anti-oil shampoo and it works well in reducing the appearance of flakes, but it still leaves my scalp itchy. Combining my shampoo with this as a pre-wash treatment (once per week or every other week, as necessary) reduces the itchy feeling and also helps with the oiliness, increasing the time between washes. It's a little bit tricky to apply since it is very liquid, but once you get used to it, you don't need much, you just need to spread and massage it well. It has never left my scalp irritated, even when I let it rest for more than the 10 minutes recommended. Even though it isn't the cheapest product, it allows me to keep buying a store-bought cheap shampoo, not using expensive pharmaceutical products and still getting results.

    I like it. My hair used to get oily after 2-3 days. And now it doesn't get oily that fast anymore. I can wash my hair once a week.
