I have had an itchy scalp for a number of years and tried various lotions and potions. Nothing seems to work. So I was impressed by previous reviews of Living Proof scalp treatment and decided that I’d spend a bit more money to really try and help my problem. I know I’ve only been using it for 2 weeks but it has done little to alleviate the itching. It does help initially but within a couple of hours it’s back to the way it was. It’s an expensive mistake 😞
I wanted to wait a few weeks until I gave a review because I was sceptical, but this product has worked for me. I fought flake's for years, trying shampoos, balms and anything else I could, but this has worked. The applicator makes things easy and gets right to the scalp. No funky smell and it doesn't make my hair greasy. The flaking, itching and unsightly hair line is virtually gone. Just like a lotion, I anticipate having to keep using this through the winter months, but I am a believer in the product! Highly recommend for dry scalp!
I have thick, long Asian hair. I have NEVER had problems with dandruff, dry scalp, really anything. This past winter though I kept my hair in a bun constantly and didn’t wash as frequently with my newborn and I think that led to SEVERE flakiness. It was visible in my black hair, I was itchy, and when I scratched I had tons of residue under my nails. It was awful.
I tried switching shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments, oils, and a flea/dandruff brush to get the flakes out. Nothing worked but this stuff here.
I have only pros for this item. It goes on easily with the pointed tip. I don’t need to section my hair like it directs. I just apply some streaks to the top and the back after I shower. No residue is left, I do not feel oily (I HATE any sleek or shine products for that reason so believe me it’s so light of a product). I saw immediate results after 2 uses. I use it about twice a week and it’s done wonders. I know it’s a little expensive but the tube is lasting me a good amount of time and I was running out of hope before buying this.
This a nice moisturizing product. However, I have scalp psoriasis and while it feels moisturizing when applied, it has not made much difference in my psoriasis. I was hoping this would be something I could apply on my scalp to wear during the day to help alleviate dryness, flakiness, and itching. It is fairly sheer and not really greasy which is nice, but it also doesn’t seem to help keep my scalp moisturized for very long. I would think if someone just had a dry, itchy scalp, this would help, but it isn’t quite “enough” for my psoriasis.
I have been battling itchy/flaky scalp since last October. No idea why. I blamed it on weather, dying my hair all over vs highlighting it prior, hard water, not enough hydration, etc. I used homemade DIY masks to include ACV, coconut oil, and egg yolks and olive oil. They'd work and settle down the itch for a day or so, but then I would be back at it. I decided to break the bank and purchase this, along with the Restore shampoo & conditioner. I am so glad and grateful. You have to section your hair out in so many different ways, but it's become a rhythm I don't mind at this point. I want to say I noticed results relatively quickly. I've been using it for about a month and will continue forward with these products.
I have struggled with dry scalp for years, and have tried everything: oil treatments, scalp exfoliants, gentle shampoo, dandruff shampoo, etc etc.
This product is the first thing I've ever used that has actually achieved its promise. It is light and absorbs right into my scalp, and doesn't weigh down my hair. I can barely feel it when I apply, and I don't need a ton. I used it every other day for about a week before I felt like my problem had been completely cured. I've been using it for about 4 weeks now every other day and never scratch my head or see any flakes.
For context: My hair is blonde, wavy, and extremely fine, and absorbs moisture quickly and easily. It tends to be extremely dry - sometimes I even spray leave in conditioner on my dry hair and it absorbs immediately. I'm not sure how this product would work for someone with hair that doesn't absorb product as well as mine, but if you're someone who tends to be extremely dry - this product is as incredible as the reviews suggests! I cannot describe how much not having to worry about embarrassing flakes or dealing with distracting scalp itchiness has improved my quality of life!
This product relieves the itching & burning of my very dry scalp. I apply it three times a week at bedtime & sleep with a cap on so the moisture & warmth makes it absorb as far into the scalp as it can. In the morning my hair looks great. Not greasy or dirty at all. I have very light blonde hair & most conditioners tend to make my hair look greasy if I apply it to my scalp area. This treatment does not. It’s pricey but it works & my scalp condition is improving. After a few weeks I have decreased itching. It does not flake off either when I brush my hair. It’s like a magic invisible potion! It smells nice & is of a thin consistency which can spread around the scalp & absorb & dry quickly. It comes out crystal clear. I took a photo of some of the product in my hand but I can barely see it. This is a great product. I buy this through Amazons Subscribe & Save Program so I never run out. I hope this is helpful to you.
I’ve been dealing with an itchy scalp the past year and a half after just one hair dye reaction long ago. I stopped using that dye but itchiness and dryness continued after just washing my hair. Most be an over 40 thing. This is the best relief I have found so far and I tired Scalpicin and Klorane with mediocre results. I also switched up shampoos I use to Neutrogena T-Gel a few times a week, and Aveeno Oatmeal Shampoo, plus Neutrogena deep conditioner.
My only regret is not buying this product sooner. Since January I have had bad dandruff, itching, burning, pimples throughout my scalp. I spent over $130 at the doctor's and on prescription products to "treat" my problem. It would work temporary and then I'd have the same issues in a few days. I had relief immediately after using this product and it has lasted. My scalp no longer burns and itches. It's healing. I'm so thankful for this product. Praise the Consumer Gods!!
