Oilatum Scalp Anti-dandruff Shampoo Reviews

Product Tested By Laura Dolan

Laura Awarded The Oilatum Scalp Anti-Dandruff Shampoo 5/5

It looks like a chemist product and has quite clearly got the word ‘scalp’ on it.  As I always look for medicated shampoos that focus on the ‘scalp’, this is actually appealing to me! Good concept. It states that it ‘soothes itchy scalps’ and ‘helps clear dandruff’ which again, is what I look for in a shampoo. Instructions brief and clear. There is no messing around or flowery language from this brand which is refreshing. Simple and indicative of a medicated product.  Looks like something you could get on prescription. This was easy to apply and massage into the scalp. I only used a smallish blob (50p size) and got a good lather going in my thick hair I actually did 2 washes and rinses per wash (even though the instructions state 1 wash) as that is my normal custom.  One wash to get rid of hair products from previous wash, then another good wash to really get at the scalp. I’ve used this for 2 weeks and my long, thick, curly hair looks nicely nourished. I have got scalp psoriasis that is notoriously hard to clear, even with steroids, so I wouldn’t expect a shampoo to be able to do this.  However after 2 weeks, there has definitely been an improvement in my scalp condition. My scalp seems a lot less dry and itchy and the scaling around my hairline has definitely reduced. I did like the aroma as it is a nice clean, inoffensive smell which is hard to find in a scalp treatment shampoo! I used this twice a week for 2 weeks. I noticed improvement within 1 week (so 2 washes). It seems to be working and doing what it says it does so it seems good quality so far! Compared to ordinary shampoos, the bottle size is small for the price but then you don’t have to use much product to get a good lather.  After 2 weeks, the bottle still feels like there’s plenty in it so I imagine it would last well. I liked the fact that it has improved my scalp condition and smells nice. I would buy this.  It seems to be helping my scalp condition and doesn’t smell as strong as other shampoos that focus on soothing the scalp. I would recommend as it hasn’t irritated my sensitive scalp and is effective at what it says it does. This has reduced my itching and scalp scaling. A result that is worth its weight in gold really! After 2 weeks of washing twice weekly, my scalp condition has improved. I’ve experienced less itching and scalp looks better and less dry. This seems to have moisturised my scalp which is very soothing.  It also smells nice and has left my hair looking moisturised and healthy. Laura Dolan

Small but well packed bottle. It does what it says , so I am happy with it. Instructions were short and very easy to follow. Love the shape of the bottle. Its quite cute and was easy to hold. Shampoo was super smooth and easy to apply. You wont need to use much as it foams pretty well. My scalp is so much better. Shampoo is smooth and although a small bottle it will go long way as you wont need much product compare to regular shampoo. My hair feels so much smoother than before. The only problem I am having is that my scalp is oily and this shampoo didn’t help in that matter. In fact my hair gets greasy even faster than before. My scalp is oily, full of dandruff and extremly itchy at all times. This shampoo has helped to remove dandruff and my scalp is so much better regards to itchiness, however oily  and greasy scalp is still something I need help with. Oh yes really liked the aroma. The most important part when it comes to shampoo is the smell. I have changed so many different shampoos ,especially the ones that were therapeutic or prescribed by doctor and they smell awful. This shampoo on the other hand has baby like smell and I love it. I used it every other day. From day one I had seen it working. My head wasn’t as itchy. Works well and does what its supposed to. Absolutely great value as it goes long way. I loved the smell it is gorgeous. Will buy this product again as it worked well so far for me and the smell cannot be compared to any other I used before.  I would recommend especially if they have issues with dandruff or itchiness. I give this product 5 out of 5 because it really works well for me. Shampoo comes in 100ml bottle but leathers well so you wont need much product. I had very sore and itchy scalp with lots of dandruff and this has helped clearing it almost fully just within a week. I used it 3 times within that week. That tells you how good the product is. I would recommend this to everyone who really struggles with itchiness and dandruff  or just one of these. Oilatum shampoo really does the work. Once I run out of it ,I will be buying another one. I think is my new must have product. Josipa Setka

this is something I have suffered with myself but with other leading market brands it has given me greasy hair so I was interested to try this. Instructions clear and easy to follow. Bottle design simple but effective. This was very easy to apply. I was sure it would be as it was an unusual consistency but it was very easy to apply. a small amount gave good coverage over my hair and lathered well. This was the bit I was most pleased with as it didn’t leave my hair greasy at all like other brands have. My scalp is  still a bit dry but I will be continuing the use of this. I liked the aroma as it doesn’t have much of a scent, it’s quite subtle but I like it. I used this every other day. it was more that it didn’t leave my hair greasy, I’m a few weeks in and it’s not as itchy. I hope with continued use it would be 5/5. it’s quite expensive so if I didn’t see dramatic result after a few months use I would potentially try a different competitor. I really liked the fact it did not leave my hair greasy at all. I would buy this if I felt like it had made a huge difference in another months time. I would recommend. Not full marks from me as I would need to continue to use, it seems like a good product. I would be interested to know how long the bottle lasts to see how expensive it could become. I’m happy with the condition of my hair after using for a few weeks though. Jade Nuttall

I did like the aroma. Used this 3 to 4 times a week. I noticed an improvement in dry scalp conidition at the end of the first week.

Pleased that the Oilatum range had an anti-dandruff shampoo but was a bit concerned about using it as many haven’t worked in the past for me. Great to see this product in the Oilatum range and hoped it would be as mild and gentle as some other other products by Oilatum. Instructions nice and simple, easy to understand. Bottle is good size, easy to hold and open with one hand when in the shower. the viscosity was nice and creamy enough to lather into wet hair.  It was a good consistency and didn’t need too much. It cleaned my hair well and felt good.  Actually yes it worked! I was surprised at how well it worked after just one application. My scalp was flake free and didn’t feel itchy. The aroma was fine, a neutral pleasant aroma. I used this once a week for 3 weeks. After the first use noticed an improvement – very  surprised!  Looks good, does the job it claims. Although it’s pricey, a little does go a long way, even with my long hair. I really liked the fact that it worked well. I would buy this as it helped relieve my scalp of flakes and itchiness, it was mild enough to not strip my hair of oils. I would recommend because it worked well for me. Great product, so glad it found me and my itchy scalp was relieved. This was a really surprising product, I’m so glad it worked for me and was gentle enough for regular use without feeling too strong or medicated. The condition of my scalp has improved as well as my hair. Sharanjit Sagoo

I suffer from dry flaky scalp so was keen to try this and see if it would work for me.  Good to have a shampoo designed for scalp conditions and not being a medicated one you need to get from doctor. Easy to follow instructions. Good ergonomic bottle design. Easy to use and massage into scalp. I am very sensitive to many products and I found this gentle on my scalp and lathered well. Good consistency and little goes a long way.  It cleaned hair well. I was surprised as this really did help and eased the itchiness and help clear up dandruff. Aroma was fine. I would use this once a week. I was surprised as this did work and I noticed improvement after second use. My son also suffers from same condition and he has used this and working well for him too. The quality is very good and it works.  I have tried many shampoos in the past to help with my dandruff and itchy scalp and when you find one that actually works it is worth the money. I was relieved to finally find a shampoo that worked and help clear my dandruff and calm itchy scalp. As soon as this bottle is empty I will purchase more.  I would recommend to anyone with this condition as it is very effective. Great product, easy to use and it worked for me.  Graham Pearson
