I use a conditioner with Tea Tree Oil that I bought at a local store called Whole Foods. Tea tree is supposed to help calm the scalp and help avoid flakes.

The package insert says:

"PHYTHEOL INTENSE is to be used 2 to 3 times a week as an initial 1 month intensive treatment."

I plan on following the above instructions then move on to once a week after that first month to see what results I get. The insert also states that it helps prevent reoccurring dandruff for up to 2 months after discontinuing product use. I should think that once a week would maintain the results fairly well. Time will tell however.

Just went to a Phyto salon, technician said to use this 2x a week. Not everyday because of the salicyic acid.

Question
Safe with other Shampoos?
Can/ Should I use this with another shampoo on top of using this product. Also it says to use once a week after the first month, do I NOT wash my hair at all in between washes not even dry shampoo. Will I no longer need to use dry shampoo?

I've used this product for about 2 years and I ONLY use it on my scalp. I follow it up by shampooing the rest of the hair (scalp not included) with a different shampoo. It is rather thin and a pricey bottle, but worth every penny for the results.

I think that because this shampoo is an intense consistency, you would not need much product to really clean your scalp to begin with. Mixing with other products that you have had success with in the past is a great idea as well and has worked for me too. I always go with what I feel best in my hair :)

A little strong, but not once it is in your hair. Fresh, minty-ish, eucalyptus (spelling, sorry!).

I don't think it does help with volume. I didn't get a good sense of clean either when I used it. Hope this helps.

The ingredients listed include:

Sodium laureth sulfate, sodium shale oil sulfonate, and sodium lauroyl sarcosinate.

I'm fairly certain these are sulfates. Also, the active ingredient is salicylic acid 2%.

yes the first time you use it it bring the flakes to the surface but keep using it & after a while it exfoliates the scalp so there is no more dead skin to fall off .. at least this was in my experience.
