Used this product twice after developing an itchy scalp. My hair when dried appeared to have snapped off and was very wispy, it looks awful. I have blonde highlighted hair, and checked on the bottle that it was safe to use. There was no warning regarding this so I went ahead and used as directed. My scalp felt better initially but I was horrified when I dried my hair. I am going to contact my hairdresser to see what I can do, but I certainly would NEVER use this again or recommend it.

I like to use the Neutrogena Anti-Buildup shampoo every once in a while, but the 2 stores I went to were out & I was told it was discontinued. I made a mistake and got the Tgel Scalp buildup shampoo and used it once and have had horrible itchy, dry, flaky scalp for a month now and I don't know how to fix it. I never had this issue and it is an everyday problem, it's driving me crazy. Tgel made my scalp obsessively itchy and it is so bad that it looks like it is snowing when I finally give in...

I have used T/Gel for years for itchy, flaky patches on my scalp. The results are quick and I would give this product 5 stars if it weren't for the new fragrance. It smells awful and I have some allergic reaction to it. The new fragrance has got to go. I recently had a stress caused episode of guttate psoriasis on my chest. Nothing worked to clear it up. I washed the area with T/Gel shampoo and it cleared up the rash in a few days. But my eyes were burning until the smell faded, which... (read more)

I would look past all the negative reviews here and give it a shot. I had some bad psoriasis going on and after the first time I used the original formula t-gel, I noticed a change in both itching and size of the bumps on my head. My dandruff has pretty much passed as well. This stuff worked great for me. All I had to do was prioritize my priorities of either beating the psoriasis and have my hair not looking silky smooth for a couple weeks or suffer and hope to find something that cures...

I am a senior with a long history of dandruff, flaking scalp. One of the products I was using successfully is no longer available. So I tried this product . It temporary ( 24 hours ) gave me some relief however I would say it has not performed as well as the previous product I used. My hair was limp and felt dirty all the time. I find the fragrance used is offensive to me. (read more)

I have bought this product because I could not use fragrance stuff, caused me itchy scalp. It helped me to get rid off itching but my hair left dull and lifeless although it was promise about shiny hair. For couple years I am struggling with thinning, falling hair. It seems nothing works, I am giving up, it just wasting time and your money. (read more)

I have been using this for 3 weeks now. I wanted a shampoo that would help with greasy hair as I had to wash mine everyday. Also, I wanted a shampoo that would clear dandruff and mild psoriasis.
I think this shampoo is v. good. It has made my hair less greasy and less dandruff. However, it has not completly got rid of all dandruff. It has also cleared 90% of psoriasis so far. I can cope with the smell as it is like Teetree oil.
It is a good shampoo and good for money.
The down sides: it... (read more)

I am 10 which is 2 years younger than the recomended age and it's rubish!!!!!! I used it after my scalp was extremly icthy but not very flaky. I have been using it about 2 times a week for 3 weeks and it hasn't improved my scalp. It has helped a bit but not a lot. I feel it would help people with a less itchy scalp but people like me would not realy beifit them. One thing that would have helped would be like a rate of how many people who have tried it would reccomend it to a friend.
So all... (read more)

I used this shampoo as my scalp was slightly itchy due to a hair that had been applied. The packaging said for "itchy" scalp. Within two/three hours after using the product my scalp was burning. The symptoms continued through the night and severely the next day. My head was literally burning. When I consulted the pharmacist I was told that I had this reaction because of the coal tar content and the fact that my hair had been coloured. There should be a CLEAR warning on the packaging.

I used T gel to relieve psoriasis and an embarrassing itchy flaky scalp, caused from an allergic reaction to hair dye. Neutrogena worked wonders for my hair, the itchiness almost immediately stopped, my scalp feels like it can breathe again........the smell wasn't an issue for me, I kind of liked it! However due to over sensitive skin I had one of the side effects, my face broke out into acne, so as a result I have had to stop using it.
Don't use it every day; of course it will be too much... (read more)

out of the blue, I developed a scalp condition (itching,soreness,flakiness etc) never having had any such thing before. My doctor suggested various treatments which were agony and then, as i was evidently reacting badly to those, suggested T/Gel, as it doesn't contain alcohol. And, amazingly, it was a success. I use it twice weekly when the condition is bad and then once weekly afterwards.
Yes, if your hair is treated cosmetically, it does leave it feeling 'matted' and so all you need... (read more)

My question is does Neutrogena T/Gel help reduce acne in the scalp? I have been looking for a product that relieves this condition, and I don't know if the acne is due to oily scalp or something else. I also hope this product does not make the acne worse? I bought it on a whim and later realized that it treats psoriasis, which I don't have, so I am trying to guage the usefulness of this product for people like me.
Also, can T/Gel be combined with other shampoos? (read more)

I used Neutrogena T Gel shampoo 3 times according to the directions due to psoriasis and I have now lost Over a half a head of hair due to this product. I don't know why this product is on the market as a shampoo if it makes hair fall out. I quit using it over a month ago and my hair is still falling out drastically every day when I shower and when I brush it. I have been considering getting a wig and soon I think I will have to. Don't understand why it works well for some and makes others... (read more)

I am 28 and have had psoriasis on my scalp since I was a child. I have been under alot of stress recently which resulted in my condition getting extremely itchy, flaky and sore.
I bought this shampoo from the supermarket and already less than 24 hours after using it I have witnessed a massive improvement in my symptoms.
This shampoo is expensive but completely worth it, the smell is unpleasant and does make your hair extremely tangly but when used with your normal conditioner you will... (read more)

I occasionally have eczema at the back of my scalp but keeping hair clean keeps it under control. A family drama a couple of weeks ago made me stressed for a few days and the eczema was really bad - lumpy and raw where I tried to pick off the dry skin.
I bought some T-Gel at the supermarket, applied it for 30 minutes (it instantly felt calming) then washed my hair. Within 2-3 days, the whole lot cleared up. It was fantastic! Just one application! So liberating!
I keep feeling the area... (read more)

I have been using TGEL original formula for a long time (5 years) with great success to control my psoriasis.

Now I have found that the medicinal ingredients have been changed recently to "0.5% Coal Tar/Goudron Mineral (0.5%) and this chnge in the Medicinal ingredient is causing adverse effect on the control of my condition. This change also requires the more... (read more)

Started using this around a month ago and couldn't continue. Have fine hair and mild psoriasis on my scalp (flakiness and itching BAD BAD BAD!!). Used Neut. T Gel for 3 nights on the trot and had never seen my hair so dry and wispy, was frightened it was all falling out. Smells strong, which I was OK with until I saw the state of my hair after. Does it contain some sort of bleach???!!!! Does it say on it to avoid if having fine hair? (I threw bottle away....)
The mornings following the... (read more)
