My review is actually for Rene Furterer products in general. I have thick long hair, and I had the most horrible scalp problem. It got to the point where right after washing, it would be itchy again. I finally discovered what was wrong. The salon I've been going to had a Rene Furterer rep in there one day doing scalp analyses, and figured that I had oily dandruff, a result of the damp weather here in Vancouver. Once she figured the type of dandruff (treatment depends on what type you have), she recommended the right shampoo/conditioner to go with Complex 5. The products are quite expensive, so I initially only purchased Complex 5. It seemed to help a tiny bit (took away the itch, but it would come back after a day). Tried that for 2-3 weeks, and then decided to add the shampoo and conditioner that was recommended (from the Melaleuca line). BOY! That combo worked exponentially better. After a few washes, the itchiness slowly went away. I then started to use it intermittently, alternating between this and my regular shampoo (Bumble and Bumble). I make sure to dry my hair/scalp thoroughly, and now the problem is pretty much gone (although it did take ~ 6 mo for me to be truly convinced that this stuff had solved my problem). Using the Rene Furterer stuff ~ twice a week, it has lasted for 7 months and I still have quite a bit of product left. I like this stuff not only because it got rid of my stubborn scalp/dandruff problem, but it also has a nice light scent to it and it's made of essential oils, which is better for you than the chemicals used in other shampoo products. Definitely worth trying, especially if you've already tried everything else (like tea tree shampoos...didn't work for me).
