Rated 1 out of 5 by Londo Worst shampoo
I have an itchy and flaky scalp and occasionally dandruff. After having used this shampoo for a week my scalp got worse. This shampoo contains among its ingredients SLS (TEA-Lauryl Sulphate), perfume/fragrance and Benzyl Alcohol. How a shampoo for a sensitive scalp can have these ingredients I do not know? I have found Philip Kinsley’s shampoos very poorly formulated and extremely expensive.

Rated 1 out of 5 by anniebnorfolk dreadful results
I bought this shampoo as most of my life I have suffered from a flaky , itchy scalp which can be quite distressing as well as unsightly. Most of the other reviews are singing its praises.
After just the first wash my scalp was less itchy and flakes appeared to be disappearing. Why the 1 star review? My hair, always alittle tricky to manage as it is very thick, became lank and unmanageable and after only 3 washes I had to give up completely as I looked and felt as if I had placed a straw bale on top of my head. It looked so awful that I was embarrassed to go out!! I have resurrected my normal hair by using a product removing shampoo and gave it a good condition with elasticiser. So not all Philip Kingsley products are this bad but I truly cannot understand the effect on my hair. The search continues for an effective flaky saclp shampoo that also leaves my hair shiny and soft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rosebudx Not impressed
I had really high hopes for this, both me and my daughter suffer with sensitive and itchy scalps and have found little to relieve it other than the "tar" type products.
After the first couple of uses it did seem to ease temporarily and after 3 to 4 weeks there seemed to be an improvement. Since then the temporary relief seems to have gone and both of us seem to be now struggling with dull and slightly greasy hair as a result. The search continues for us I'm afraid, wish I'd have sent it back instead of persisting :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chezza52 A perfect find
After trying all sorts of shampoo for my flaky scalp, I read previous reviews and thought I would give it a go. Well, all I can say is, this WORKS WONDERS!I shall not be looking for any other product.

I bought this shampoo in a set as I had come to the end of my tether. I have had seborrheic dermatitis for about four years now and it had gradually got worse. I had been given scrip shampoos that did nothing apart from leaving my coloured hair in dreadful condition. My scalp, in the end was on fire. It was itching so badly it must have looked as if I had nits. It was burning and sore and the dandruff was so bad it literally fell as I walked. I was at the end of my suffering and could not bear it any longer. I was in such terrible discomfort that I asked my hairdresser to shave my head so I could put ointment on my scalp. I even had to grit my teeth when I had my hair coloured and didnt dare tell her in case she refused to colour it, but strangely it seemed to burn off the soreness and itching for a couple of days. I had tried everything that the chemist and QVC offered except itchy and flaky. I saw it one evening and with tongue in cheek, ordered it as I could return, but the moment I used it, I cried with relief. The burning and itching disappeared as I lathered and has never returned. I had to wait about 6-7 weeks before the dandruff went, but mine was very severe. After shampooing and conditioning now, my hair is again soft and shiny with no itching, no burning and now, no dandruff. Please print this review for other customers who may be going through this awful condition and thankyou Philip Kingsley for giving me back my sanity...my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazzit What a relief!
Philip Kingsley you are one amazing man! Thankyou so much for making this available to the general public.
It is really awful to have a continuous itchy head. I have tried so many different shampoos to combat the problem without avail, then I spotted you Flaky Itchy Shampoo, the 'Itchy' standing out to me and just had to try it.
What did I have to loose, with the 30 day back guarantee from QVC it was not a problem.
So glad I tryed it, it has given me such relief and would highly recommend it to anyone with the same problem, I can relax again!

Great product. PK really knows his stuff.
My hair is shiny, manageable and my itchy scalp no longer itches. I never suffered from flakiness but I've no doubts this would sort it. Great size bottle for the shower and imagine it will last ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissGiles My hair is much better
When I first watched Philip Kingsley on the show I was so happy to find a shompoo that help my itchy sculp. It had been driving me mad for years.
Once I started to use it my itchy scup was much better. My hair dresser as found my hair to be much better to cut. It is not so greasy. My hair stays in still much better.
I have also use the trio set with shampoo, conductioner and Toner. That as also helped my hair and sculp.
Many thanks Philip Kingsley and QVC
