What’s more annoying than an itchy scalp? An itchy, oily scalp. My skin and scalp don’t seem to cope well with seasonal changes, especially living in Melbourne where the weather is so temperamental. One minute it’s 30 degrees, the next it’s 14.
As the seasons are changing, I often start to experience scalp sensitivity and my normal shampoo leaves me with dandruff - so I find myself needing to wash my hair more often. Which explains why I have a particular shampoo on rotation for a few months of the year. Introducing, Green People Irritated Scalp Shampoo.
What Does It Do?- Enriched with organic Pineapple & Rosemary to relieve an itchy scalp
It soothes and rebalances the scalp for refreshed, nourished hair
Stimulates scalp circulation & reduces dandruff by removing dead skin cells
Has a gentle cleansing action to cater to oily hair types
Cruelty-free, vegan-friendly & free from SLS/SLES, alcohol & parabens
Who's It Good For?This specialised formula has been developed for normal to oily hair. It's ideal for treating itchy scalps, dandruff sufferers and also eczema in the eyebrows and beard. It's an excellent shampoo option for people with sensitive, dandruff-prone scalps which may also suffer from psoriasis or dermatitis.
If your hair is more normal than it is oily, I’d recommend introducing a regular hydrating treatment for your mid-lengths and ends, as this formula can cause dryness is normal hair types when used continuously.
This formula has almost a watery texture which is different to most shampoos, but a little bit goes a long way, so it should last you around 3 months with regular use.
Simply apply a small amount of Irritated Scalp Shampoo to wet hair & gently work through from scalp to ends. If you feel like you've got a buildup of dirt and oil, do a double-shampoo. I always recommend using the Green People Irritated Scalp Conditioner for the best results.
★★★★★ Fabulous - Lizzie"I suffer with psoriasis of the scalp and various allergies to sulphates including SLS, SLE and all the other nasties you find in some shampoos. This never fails to clear up my scalp issues and I've always got a bottle of it in the house! Love it!"
★★★★★ Great irritated scalp shampoo - Allison"This shampoo really does soothe an itchy scalp. It has no harmful chemicals in it and after using my hair shines beautifully. You don't need to use much either. I definitely would recommend it."
★★★★★ So far, so good - Kiran"I have a very sensitive scalp which in the past (even immediately after washing) will start itching. I have been using this for about 3 weeks now and its got a lovely scent and I have noticed a lot of improvement in my itchy scalp. A little goes a long way, I have quite long hair and don't find myself needing as much product as with some other brands. Love this will definitely be ordering a second bottle when this one finishes!"
★★★★★ Saved my hair - Elina"I decided to try this shampoo and I'm loving! Although I don't have an itchy or flaky scalp, it's made a big difference to the oiliness of my scalp!"
★★★★★ A+ product - Charlotte"I’ve been suffering with a burning, itchy, dry scalp so bad it was keeping me awake at night. I was beside myself, trying everything and having no relief. Within a matter of two washes my scalp had calmed down and now a couple of weeks later it’s SO much better. Very grateful. Hoping it will help with the excessive shedding that seemed to accompany the itch too."
