If you are subscribed to my twitter or facebook pages, you probably know by now that I have been having a gross problem with my scalp of late!
It all started back in December when I started to use Kerastase Bain Divalent shampoo, which got rid of all the product build up that I was experiencing, and the hair dresser (not my usual salon, just one near my work where I had a quick lunch time blow wave) told me to use it every second day, which I did.
Within a week I was experiencing dandruff, but my hair was so clean that I kept at it. Fast forward to January/February and my scalp had all sorts of issues, including dandruff, sores and all that other gross stuff.
I stopped using the Kerstase Bain Divalent and switched to Kerastase Dermo Calm but still had heaps of issues. I actually ended up ringing Kerastase to ask if this problem had been reported by anyone else, to which they said no.
Anyway, after putting the call out for some help on Facebook, and lots of people suggested Coal Tar or Zinc shampoo. I went to see my doctor last night and she had a look at my scalp and suggested the same.
Straight after my appointment I had an appointment at Miss Fox for my threading (which still hurts like a bitch) and to my surprise, Victoria had left this Philip B product for me to try in hope that it would soothe my woes.
So it contains all of the good stuff that my doctor suggested, plus it is Philip B which always makes my hair feel so nice after leaving Luna’s capable hands at Miss Fox. Win Win.
I was excited to wash my hair with it last night, and after applying to my scalp I noticed the smell, which is strong but not too bad.
I left it on my scalp for about 3 minutes before working it in to the ends and then rinsing out and following with conditioner.
I could actually feel my scalp tingling, which it doesn’t normally do, so I guess that is the active ingredients doing their thing.
I haven’t been able to dry my hair for the past 2 weeks as my scalp felt like it was on fire, but I dried it last night with my parlux and I had relatively no pain!!
My scalp is not as itchy as normal today, I cannot wait to keep using it if it is already having positive benefits.
I love reading the reviews on Makeupalley, and this product doesn't have many reviews but every review has been 100%, resulting in 5 lipsticks! You can read them here.
Here’s to hoping that it works its magic and heals me!! I need some healing god dammit.
I shall report back after 2 weeks of use!!
