Birchbox Breakdown

We often look to French women to emulate their minimalist chic style and simple, seemingly nonfattening-yet-indulgent diet, so it seems only natural that we would turn to French brand Phyto for its uncomplicated, plant-based hair care—especially when it comes to urgent needs like ridding hair of dandruff. With botanical ingredients sourced from Haute Provence, this highly concentrated flake-fighting shampoo treats dry or oily dandruff with active soothing and purifying agents.

How to Use

Apply a quarter-sized dollop to wet hair, and rinse. Then reapply product, massage into scalp, and let sit for three to four minutes. Rinse thoroughly, and then condition as normal. Use two or three times a week for up to one month as an intensive treatment, and then once a week to keep dandruff a thing of the past.

Works on my hard-to-treat psoriasis!
Purchased

Best treatment shampoo I've found - even compared to those prescribed by a dermatologist! The only product I've found to keep my persistently dry scalp flake-free.

Scalp Psoriasis?
Purchased

I bought this shampoo hoping that I could use it to help my minor scalp psoriasis, it has helped some, but not entirely. The smell & texture is quite different from the normal; however, it is not offensive. It did leave my hair soft and much more moisturized than some other treatment shampoos.

Great shampoo, does the job!
Purchased

After the first application this shampoo did the job, only thing I didn't like was the price of the shampoo for the amount. The smell of the shampoo wasn't the best it smelled very much like medication, but I guess the shampoo is more of a medication than a luxury. But it did the job, got rid of my dandruff from the first application.

Cured my dandruff

I have dandruff and oily hair. The dandruff was out of control. I had not tried other products (I was in denial). I bought this and saw results instantly. My head stopped itching and the flakes were long gone by the end of two weeks. I wash my hair every other day and used it for a month to be completely rid of the dandruff. Now I use it once a month at a minimum or twice a month. It does have a strong smell. Not my favorite, but not horrible by any means. As for the oiliness in my hair, I'm a naturally oilier person. I've accepted that there is nothing that will eliminate the oil on my face or hair except washing it. As for dandruff treatment, this works great!

Love this!
Purchased

I am obsessed with this product! My scalp gets extremely dry so it tends to flake. The quantity is small but it's definitely worth it! It says to use the shampoo twice in one shower, I did that probably the first ten times. Now I use it just one time (to keep it longer). I use my normal conditioner with it and am extremely happy! Definitely buying this product again!

So far so good!
Purchased

I ran out of the dandruff shampoo I have been using and thought I'd see what Birchbox had. I've used this shampoo once and was pleased with the results. The scent really isn't too bad, so that wasn't a concern. It made my hair soft and dandruff free for the day. The following day, my scalp was a little more dry but not too bad. So far, I'd call this a success!!

What a total difference. I was sick of the store brands and wanted to give this a try and all ready after one use I can see this baby performs.

Great for dandruff, not great for scent
Purchased

I purchased this product because store-purchased brands do not seem to help my dandruff and itchy scalp. I have very thick, curly hair and typically wash 3 times per week. Washing more often causes my hair to become overly dry and damaged.

This product works really, really well at alleviating the itch and dandruff issues that I have. However, I find the scent very off-putting. It is very unpleasant smelling however using a better smelling conditioner tends to mask the bad odor of the shampoo itself.

The shampoo is also very runny compared to the consistency of a typical shampoo and virtually runs right out of the bottle and out of your hand. Because the cost is rather high compared to a typical shampoo purchase, I am very cautious when using as not to waste.

Dandruff shampoo
Purchased

This shampoo has helped me with my dandruff and oily scalp. I use it once a week. I do not like the smell. It reminds me of tar.
My scalp feels super clean after I use this shampoo. My hair is also soft and looks clean (even on the second day after I have shampooed).

OK product, not for me.
Purchased

I still have the skin and scalp of a teenager and recently I had a really nasty bout of dandruff hit me. The basic stuff you can get in a drug store wasn't really helping, so I thought I'd try something else. This shampoo did nothing for me. It seems like it would help with more mild cases and/or preventative maintenance, but it did nothing for my severe case, even though it said "severe" right on the bottle. It might just be me, though - in this product's defense, I visited my doctor last week for an unrelated issue; the man took one look at me and said, "You want something for your scalp?". Yikes, that can't be good. So just because this shampoo didn't help my apparently clinical case of dandruff doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad product. If you have a normal-person level of dandruff and want to go the natural route, give it a shot. Maybe you'll have better luck with it.
