I am familiar with the Shea Moisture brand and currently use the African Black Soap bar and the Superfruit Multi-Vitamin Hair Masque. I love this brand in that they use natural and/or organic ingredients and they have various lines for different hair, and skin problems, and they do not test on animals.
I received the Shea Moisture African Black soap Dandruff Control shampoo and conditioner as samples from Shea Moisture with a $2 off coupon for future purchases. They are currently giving out free samples at www.sheamoisture.com
I love the fragrance of the shampoo and conditioner, it has an almost warm amber scent. It is not sudsy because these products are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oils, synthetic fragrance, DEA. So just because it is not sudsy does not mean it does not work. These products are better for you and the environment. The shampoo contains Melissa officinalis as an active ingredient for reducing irritation, as well as african black soap, tea tree oil, and willow bark extract.
The conditioner contains silicea for sebaceous dermatitis, Lycopodium clavatum for scalp odor and dandruff, and Kali sulphuricum to reduce yellow dandruff as active ingredients and african black soap, tea tree oil, and willow bark extract as well.
These products left my scalp slightly tingly while using and after rinsing off, proving to me that the active ingredients were helping with the dry itchy scalp. It definitely reduced the itchy irritation of my dry scalp while leaving my hair silky smooth and smelling great. I would definitely recommend this for anyone suffering from dry scalp or dandruff.
