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.
There's nothing in Oregon hair care products that should effect hair dye.
However if you have psoriasis on your scalp, or a very sensitive scalp, hair dye (especially bleach) is widely considered to be a skin irritant and could be making your symptoms worse.
It might be worth considering avoiding hair dyes until your scalp improves or switching to natural dyes.

What is Oregon Grape Root?
Oregon Grape Root (OGR) has been found in a UK trial to be highly effective in reducing the symptoms associated with psoriasis. OGR is a native plant of North America and has been extensively examined as a treatment for psoriasis in several published studies. These studies have found that compounds isolated from extracts of OGR possess inhibitory activity against Lipoxygenase (an enzyme involved in psoriatic skin cell production).
