Overall this stuff is really good for your scalp and dandruff if you have it. If not than it's also something that I would recommend just to wash your hair with. After I washed my hair with it my hair came out squeaky clean but still but still soft. Effectiveness For me it worked really well I've always had dandruff problems and they seemed to lesson after the first use. I continued using it and things gradually got better. It actually got to the point that I could go longer in-between washes. The longest I've went is about a month and the only reason I went that long is because I ran out and couldn't find another bottle. Scent I'm not really a fan of the minty smell. The only reason I still picked it up is because I had heard that it was good for your hair. In general it wasn't really that bad but still it was kinda clingy and I almost can never get the smell out even by useing a flowery conditioner afterwards.
