I have had a tooth and nail fight with scalp issues for my entire adult life. Over the course of the last 10 years, I feel like I have tested, used and cursed like a sailor at every dry scalp treatment shampoo on the market. Baxter's Daily Protein Shampoo is one of the best, and the only one I now use. The "Minty Tingle" is pleasant and not bothersome, this shampoo does not come close to the "Oh my God!, oh my God!, I just dumped kerosene on my head like some of the full "Tea Tree" products do. A conditioner is a must with this product as it gets your hair REALLY clean, pulls most of the oils with it, so a little something for the fur to get that nice soft and clean feelings is nice. I pair it with their Daily Conditioner, works well. The benefits of the "Protein" are slow on the results uptake. It took me about a week of use before I could attribute protein benefits. Good product, highly recommended for anyone looking for a good scalp treatment, pleasant scent (you don't end up smelling like the men's body spray isle at the store) Wife digs the smell of it, and lets face it anything that gets the wife closer is a worth wile investment.
