I had very bad dandruff for a while, and it was impossible to get rid of, which was very unfortunate for me. My scalp itched all the time, and it was irritating to have to scratch and spread my flakes everywhere. I was so embarrassed of myself for a very long time because of it. When I started using this, not only did it diminish my dandruff, but it actually helped to soothe my scalp and it barely itched after I used this stuff. Great product to use.
