T/Gel® Therapeutic Shampoo-Extra Strength is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing I don't remember when I first started using T/Gel, but I do remember when I stopped using T/Gel. I had awful Scalp Psoriasis through my teen years, I found T/Gel and within a couple of months of using it 2x a week, it completely disappeared. It would occasionally pop up again and a quick wash with T/Gel put it back to bay. I have now be psoriasis free for 2 years now and I fully accrediate this to the fabulous product that is Nutrogena T/Gel - thank you!! Its not the loveliest smelling or looking shampoo, but I literally couldn't care less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great, dislike smell Just bought this yesterday, i have really bad problems with my scalp. my scalp gets really irritated and dry and flakes up REALLY bad. everything ive used hasnt worked but this is just me reviewing off of a onetime use. i washed my hair this morning and i have felt instant relief in using this product. my scalp isnt itch and i dont see any flakes falling. i hope i get the same results after every use. the only things i dislike about this product are; 1) def doesnt mositurze your hair at all so make sure you have a good conditoner 2) REALLY DISLIKE the smell of this product, in my opinion it reminds me of a hospital/nursing home.which i mean, makes sense because its a medicated product. but i wish it had no smell at all if not any of a good smell because i have been smelling it all day and i just cannot take the smell. other than that so far so good. i will keep using this product because it helps, i just dont know how long ill be able to bare the smell. so with my one time experience i give it 4 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but needs a new bottle... The shampoo itself is awesome, works great! I have super thick hair though, so it is really difficult to get the shampoo down onto my scalp where it is most needed. Not impossible, just a real pain. It would be extremely helpful if the cap to the bottle was more pointed, like a nozzle , so you can apply it directly to the scalp. No one uses this shampoo for its amazing cleaning ability, we use to for itchy scalp. so make it easier to apply to the scalp! Just a recommendation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from scalp dermatitis I suffer from scalp dermatitis due to wearing baseball cap while exercising, running and gym workouts, which I do one of these daily PLUS I seem to have a reaction to the sodium lauryl and laureth sulfate (main ingredient in most shampoos). On top of which, I have naturally graying hair (more white) and combination straight (on top and back of head) and curly around front of face and base of back of neck. I have been using another brand for curly hair (Deva Curl) for past couple of years, washing my hair every other day BUT itchy scalp was really taking over. I just started to use the Neutrogena TGel (extra strength) and had to use it back to back because it took until second washing for the itching to fully subside (thankfully). My concern is my naturally white hair seems to be turning the amber color of the TGel shampoo after this second washing. Any suggestions? Should I alternate using the TGel shampoo with my regular shampoo? I also have to use a conditioner after shampooing as I live in Colorado where it is extremely dry. I noticed if I don't use a conditioner after shampooing with TGel, my hair feels like it has residue build-up and also has that distinct tar coal smell. I reviewed with a good because the product does so far seem to be resolving the itching BUT my hair discoloration concerns me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neutropena Shampoo I love this shampoo and I won't use anything else!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works so far. I've never had scalp issues until recently when I got some breakouts from exercising, and my hair is so thick that it kept happening. I decided to go with extra strength and not to mess around with the original (not that it isn't good as well), and so far it's working to calm it down. Their T Sal shampoo also works for this problem. It instantly calms the itch on contact, the lather is good, but if you have long hair you will definitely need a conditioner. Just be careful not to let it touch your scalp.
