I bought this because I can't seem to go past a day without my head becoming a stinky oil slick. I wanted something that would rebalance my scalp, in hopes that I could go without shampooing for longer periods- making my color last longer. This did not do what I wanted. I have an oily scalp by dry ends, and this made my hair puffier. The consistency is like oil, so it's very difficult to cover your whole scalp with it. The first two times I used it, there were parts that were left greasy because I accidentally missed them when shampooing. I used this for a week, and it gave me horrendous dandruff at first. I figured it was just all the buildup coming out, so I continued; it eventually eased up. Although it did make my scalp less oily after washing it (correctly), by the end of the day, it was the same old story with all other shampoos I've tried. This didn't wow me like I was hoping it would. I also noticed that while using this and going outside, my head would smell like wet dog afterwards. That didn't used to happen. I'm going to return this.
