I have mentioned before that I have a very sensitive scalp that can be extremely uncomfortable. As a result I wash my hair everyday as I can’t stand any grease or build up, and I find it temporarily solves the irritation.
I have tried many many remedies. Some people presume that if you say you have problems with you scalp this means you have dandruff- this is not so. I have certainly tried all the T-Gel, Tar based shampoos etc and they irritate the hell out of my scalp. I have also tried powder shampoos made of various herbs, high end shampoos from Aveda and Fekkai…nothing has really captured me or offered a good solution to the dreaded itch.
So I was looking again today because my sore scalp. I spotted some products from Phillip Kingsley:
Phillip Kingsley is a Trichologist. Oh yes, he knows his stuff.
I bought this set for £15, which has a 75ml size Shampoo, Conditioner and scalp tonic.
I also picked up a product for the scalp called a ‘scalp mask’ £4 for 30mls
I have been using these products for a week to see if I should invest in the full size, which is around £16 for 250mls each and £12 for the scalp tonic.
I used the mask first 20 mins before shampooing. This was very very tingly, which I quite liked – this products is supposed to help lift off the dead layer of scaly skin.
Next I used the shampoo and conditioner in the pack – it’s funny, as I applied the conditioner, I was thinking to myself – I wouldn’t pay THAT much for a conditioner – a conditioner is a conditioner after all. But after 2 mins of applying the conditioner the comb went through my fizzy mop easily – and boy does my hair get knotted. Then after rinsing throughly, I used the scalp tonic over the scalp and rubbed it in.
So this is not a cheap range, not at all – but I have found it to have had a great effect on my scalp. I can still get a bit itchy but its calmed things down considerably and my hair is cleaner and softer than before. My aim is to have hair I don’t have to wash every single day, so if thats the case I will use less product and so the cost shouldn’t work out to be too much.
I love this stuff!
Phillip Kingsley also has products for other hair types.
