Bought this from here as I have just tried the Kalme range with great success. The shampoo stopped the itching within 2-3 washes. The dry patches have now also gone after a couple of weeks of use! This has worked brilliantly. It does have s strong smell at the time but doesn't seem to linger. Also find my fine hair is lovely and shiny and well behaved after use. I now use every other wash which keeps it at bay! (Posted on 30/03/2017)

I have been using scalp products forever to combat what my Dr says is eczema (I'm still not sure). The only thing that has ever worked has been steroid products....until now. At my wits end I Googled 'products for itchy scalp' and Oregon came up. I'd never heard of it before so thought I'd give it a try after exhausting all other products. This has been AMAZING!!! After the first use, itchiness had calmed and after several uses, my patches had gone!!! I stopped using it for a couple of months due to no patches or itchiness and I had been fine....now my patches are back so I've just ordered another bottle. I recommend this to everyone who has scalp problems! I love it! (Posted on 30/12/2016)

My husband has been using this intensive scalp shampoo for years and he has tried alternatives (such as T-gel) but says this is the best by far. He suffers from flaky scalp but does not have this problem when using this shampoo, it's brilliant at gently cleansing and soothing the scalp. I always have to order in bulk together with the liquorice lip balm which is also excellent and keeps cold sores at bay! Thank you Skin Shop, there will be many more orders from us!

I have psoriasis for some years, and neither of the prescription shampoo worked. I am using the range for few months and it eased the itch. The smell doesn't bother me as it smells much better than any tar shampoo. I will order again. (Posted on 08/02/2016)

My husband gets an itchy, flakey scalp, but using this has completely sorted it out. Also it smells strongly of lapsang souchong tea, which I think is rather nice (your hair will just smell faintly of it after use). (Posted on 08/12/2015)

After reading other reviews I decided to order this shampoo. My scalp has been itchy and a bit flaky for years but had recently got dramatically worse. Lumpy scalp, scabby and intensely itchy with no improvement after washing. After using this shampoo twice my scalp is perfectly clear. It's not been like this for years. The scent is like all tar type shampoos but you get used to it. I'm a convert!. (Posted on 23/11/2015)

My dry scalp was becoming so frustrating and annoying and I am so pleased i came across this shampoo. It has made a real difference within 2 or 3 washes my scalp isn't itchy and the flakiness has reduced dramatically. Like everyone has already advised it doesn't smell the best, a bit of a smokey aroma but with a regular conditioner this dampens the smell a bit. Worth sacrificing for the results it gives.

It may be a bit dearer than some shampoos but it does last quite a while as one wash is usually enough, the fragrance is strong but not an unpleasant one & you do feel that your hair is really clean after using it. Would highly recommend as it does help with itchy scalps (Posted on 06/10/2015)

I have tried countless shampoos for sensitive scalps, and had years of my scalp itching. I've been given steroid lotions and coal tar shampoos from the doctor which never worked (in fact the shampoo made it worse!).
I can forgive the smell of this shampoo (it's not the most pleasant smell in the world) for the fact that it actually works!! After more than 20 years of an itchy scalp, I no longer have any problems! I don't know how it does it, and frankly, I don't think I care - it works!! Thank you!! (Posted on 11/08/2015)

OMG what can I say about this shampoo!!! it is brilliant for my scalp (dry, flaky and prone to psoriasis), and can become quite sore. This shampoo is so kind and gentle on the scalp and you do not need to repeat, the first wash, even on greasy hair lathers up into a luxurious lather and leaves your hair feeling clean and fresh (Posted on 27/06/2015)

Having had scalp psoriasis for many years, this product has been my saviour. It hasn't "fixed" my psoriasis, but every other shampoo (including those from health shops) I've tried makes my snow-storm worse! Even if my psoriasis ever goes I would still keep using it as I like that it's free from animal products and quite mild. Surprised to see so many comments here about the smell, its scent is quite mild and to me totally inoffensive - if you're trying to help scalp problems then at worst you will be able to "live" with the scent for the results it brings!

My scalp psoriasis was horrendous so was glad to see this on sale. It is more pleasant to use - a nicer texture and my hair doesn't dry out so much - I just wish it didn't have 'the smell'. Reminds me of bad times when I was younger and suffering. I'd give this 5 stars for Quality if only the smell wasn't so bad. (It's a personal thing, brings back bad memories). You get a lot of hair washes for your money and I've seen an improvement so will be purchasing again. (Posted on 03/05/2015)

Product FAQs

Ask a Question

  • The Oregon Shampoo contains Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate, even though you say it doesn't contain Sodium LS. Is the Ammonium not as bad at the Sodium? And is this product 'natural'?

    Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate is different from Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and none of our products contain SLS. But ALS carries out a similar purpose. Both ingredients help break down water tension to help water wash your hair. This means the water is more able to penetrate the hair and cleanse it. If you see how drops of water pull together on a window pain, this is water tension. Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate breaks up that water tension.

    We don't use SLS because it has been recognised to cause irritation to the skin of people with very sensitive skin.

    We believe ALS is a better ingredient. It is 60% less irritating that SLS and does not penetrate the skin. We also use it at quite low concentrations. There are shampoos which use three times as much SLS as we use ALS.

    However, all ingredients can cause some irritation and ALS is no exception. However, ALS will make your hair and scalp cleaner and help prevent grease, oil and dirt build up very effectively. The shampoo used with the highly moisturising Oregon Hair Care Conditioner will leave your hair and scalp well moisturised and clean. It is also scientifically shown to help reduce dandruff.

    ALS is a natural ingredient in so far that it is derived from coconuts.

    If you want a Shampoo which is free from all potential irritants then please use our Dry Scalp Shampoo which is natural, mild, contains no SLS or ALS and is still extremely effective cleanser.

  • How did you pick the ingredients for the Shampoo and Conditioner and will they make psoriasis of the scalp worse?

    The products were designed from the ground up to avoid irritation and aggravation of scalps prone to psoriasis. Every ingredient was chosen by the UKs leading hair care scientist with your scalp problem in mind. We also asked him to leave the hair with a salon standard finish and to minimise the use of chemicals and potential irritants. We are very proud of the finished product and many customers have told us that it is has helped them enormously.

    I really recommend using it with the conditioner. The whole hair care pack represents the best value and the best effect.

  • I have just bought your total care pack and would like to know which product would be better used to help the skin on my legs, the serum or the maintenance cream? Also, should I use both products simultaneously on my legs or are they meant for different b
    They are best used together for maximum effect. The serum is designed to soften rough skin and reduce irritation and over sensitivity. It contains ingredients which are proven to do this. It is more concentrated and is best on those difficult areas like knees and elbows. Areas which need some real attention. The maintenance cream is designed to keep the skin moisturised and in good condition. I would recommend using it everywhere including over the areas you have used the serum.

  • Do Skin Shop shampoos and conditioner fade coloured hair?

    Our Shampoos and Conditioners are designed to be gentle and not to strip the hair. They will not fade coloured hair.

    However, we would advice against highlights containing bleach which will aggravate any scalp condition. I would recommend asking your hair dresser for non bleach alternatives.

  • I have a really dry scalp with dandruff and it itches. Nothing the doctor or chemist has recommended has worked. Can you suggest anything?

    You may be having problems because you are using anti-dandruff shampoos which contain anti-fungal agents.

    Dandruff is normally either caused by dry skin/eczema or fungus. Most OTC products are only for treating fungal dandruff and contain harsh anti-fungal chemicals.

    But, according to leading London trichologist Tony Maleedy, who developed the our Dry Scalp Shampoo & Conditioner and carried out the university trial, dandruff caused by dry skin, eczema or dermatitis can actually be made worse by anti-fungal agents in normal anti-dandruff shampoos.

    In addition foaming agents used in anti-dandruff shampoos such as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), have been shown in studies to cause inflammation to already highly sensitive dry scalps

    Most OTC anti-dandruff shampoos also have a very high Ph to help kill the dandruff fungus, but this high Ph is too harsh for sufferers of dry scalp dandruff and can actually make the flaking worse.

    So try our Dry Scalp shampoo & conditioner and I hope you will see some improvement.

  • Which product is best for very dry skin and skin prone to eczema and broken skin?

    The mildest is the dry eye gel. Our most soothing is Cardiospermum as it contains an extract of Aloe Vera which has been shown in trials to be moisturising and soothing. Defensil was found in trials to have a natural soothing effect on irritable skin. We also sell natural body washes, shampoos and conditioners all designed for people with very dry sensitive skin and these products will not make the skin of people with eczema any worse and are designed to be used every day.

    However, we never advise people to put our products directly onto broken skin. We would also always advise that you carry out a patch test before using any of our products.

  • Does it smell awful? sounds a silly question but all the other scalp shampoos I've had stink!

    Many scalp shampoos smell because they use coal tar to help the scalp. We use juniper oil. It doesn't smell great, but it smells much better than the coal tar shampoos. Honestly!

    The shampoo was designed to leave your hair with same feeling as a salon standard shampoo. It actually leaves the hair feeling great and your hair should be left with a neutral smell. Also if used with the conditioner the hair is left smelling very good and the two products are good to use together.

    We try and balance ease and enjoyment of use with effectiveness. I feel we have got it just right with this shampoo.

  • I suffer from dry scalp but have greasy hair. Does the Dry Scalp Shampoo tend to make hair more greasy?

    That is an unusual combination. Usually the oiliness from your scalp should prevent dryness. I suspect that the dryness is actually either a chemical intolerance in which case the dry scalp shampoo should be excellent or a yeast or fungus based infection of your scalp. In which case the Oregon shampoo would be better as it contains an anti-dandruff ingredient.

    Both are moisturising and are not designed for greasy hair but more aimed at dry hair.

    In this instance, I would recommend asking a doctor to look at your scalp and check the cause of the dryness.

  • What colour is the dry scalp shampoo and does it have an odour?
    The Dry Scalp Shampoo is a clean clear colour with the slightest hint of amber which is caused by the Cardiospermum, an active plant ingredient inside the shampoo. The shampoo does not have any artificial fragrances added and smells quite neutral with a slight hint of a plant smell. Actually very difficult to describe but really very nice.

  • I have afro hair, which shampoo is best form me?

    We have shampoos for psoriasis prone scalp and for dry scalps.

    The dry scalp shampoo is designed to intensively moisterise without irritation. It is suitable for all hair types except greasy hair.

    The Oregon Shampoo is designed again for dry scalps but for scalps which are also prone to psoriasis of the scalp. Again it is fine for all hair types except greasy hair, as it is again moisturising.

    Our conditioner is great with both shampoos.

  • Can I use this product when pregnant or breast feeding?

    Oregon is a natural ingredient which is used commonly by homoeopaths and practitioners of natural medicine. It is also given to children and adults alike to be taken orally and is regarded as very safe.

    However, due to a lack of scientific evidence showing that it is safe it is advised not to be taken orally by women who are pregnant or breast feeding.

    However, while there are no scientific research or official warnings regarding the use of Oregon topically (put on the skin) during pregnancy we advise women who are pregnant or breast feeding to ask their doctor before applying it topically just to be on the safe side.
