Actually working for me.

Skeptical at first because I've tried countless shampoos, treatments, conditioners, etc... to try and get rid of the flakes I get from my scalp being dry. It's odd because it's never been an itchy scalp issue, and it never seems irritated from excessive dryness, but I've always had a heavy amount of flakage to the point where if I ruffle my hair, I can see the flakes falling. I just used this product for the first time yesterday, and I immediately noticed a significant reduction in flaking while I was blow-drying it (almost nothing). I used this all over my head, let it set in for about 5 minutes, then applied the glycolic one and let that set in for 10 minutes, then shampoo'd and conditioned. Very happy with the results as nothing has worked this well in the past for me. Hoping they eliminate the flakes fully within the next 1 - 2 uses.

Difficult to Apply and Does Not Work

I purchased the Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment back in July 2021 when it costed $9.99 USD for fifty milliliters of product. I have an oily scalp, and this product claims to help "balance oil," so I decided to try it out.

My product container is metal and uses a plastic flip lid. Because the container is metal, the product cannot be squeezed out which makes dispensing difficult as the product can only come out by being tilted. The texture is runny, so the product comes out easily, but because my container only uses a flip lid instead of a pump or nozzle, it is easy to lose control of the flow and make a mess if the container is tilted too much.

Applying the Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment with the flip lid is a hassle. The directions on my product advise for the product to be "[dispensed]… into the palm of your hand," then "[rubbed between your] hands… and [massaged] into [your] scalp with [your] fingertips." While the instructions are straightforward, they do not translate well to real-life application for everyone. As someone with long hair, whenever I attempt to apply the product to my scalp, most of the product rubs off on my hair since my hair is in the way. I would imagine this process is much easier for individuals with shorter hair who can easily get their fingers under their hair and on their scalp, but because I need to separate my hair strands in order to expose my scalp and apply the product, fingertip application is impractical as much of…

Minimal impact

It just didn't seem to do much. Before I had to wash my hair every other day, after I still had greasy hair at end of day 2.

Salicylic Acid Scalp Treatment

I have pimples on my scalp and they itch and hurt bad sometimes. Saw dermatologist and he told me I have pimples on the scalp. I am 63 and have always taken Care and used pro shampoos on my scalp.

If you have any pimples/acne on the scalp it is good to use Salicylic Acid shampoo on your scalp with no fragrance. Well it can be expensive to buy those shampoos so I found out about this Salicylic Acid Treatment and now I use it once a week and I am in love with it. I use it right before I shampoo, which you are suppose too, and use a fragrance free shampoo and conditioner after and it does a better job than buying the expensive Salicylic Shampoo.

THIS IS A SUPERB TREATMENT AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS.

Blown away!

I have pretty thick hair and I've been dealing with some serious itchiness and flakiness to the point my scalp was bleeding at times. I've tried different products and they never worked. Even after washing with my current shampoo Biolage that's meant for dandruff, I was still suffering with so much flakiness. I've used this product ONCE so far and I've yet to have any itching and barely any flakes and I'm on day 3 since I used it. I will be keeping bottles of this on hand from now on!!
