First of all, Malibu C Scalp Wellness Shampoo works, which is rare for a scalp treatment shampoo. I sometimes get flare-ups of seborrheic dermatitis and acne on my scalp, in addition to dryness that almost everyone experiences. My scalp is significantly less dry and itchy, and I can't see or feel any flakes or blemishes after one or two uses. Another pleasant surprise from this shampoo is that it removes discoloration. I've never seen this from another shampoo. As a natural blonde, I love how this product gently and naturally brightens my hair color, even after one use! I am a frugal person, but this shampoo is a purchase I will continue to make.
