In February I’ve been testing Green People Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo (Irritated Scalp Shampoo). This is not the first Green People shampoo that I’ve tried. Previously I bought myself Intensive Repair shampoo which I thought it would help with dry and damaged ends. Yes, it did make my hair incredibly soft and smooth but unfortunately, it didn’t work for my oily scalp and it made my hair greasy sooner. It is still a great natural shampoo for those with dry hair though.
But now back to Green People Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo which is suitable for irritated, flaky scalp and oily hair… I think it’s one of the best natural shampoos for itchy scalp that I’ve ever tried. No doubt about that.
This Green People shampoo is ultra-mild and you only need a very small amount for one application. The shampoo is very concentrated and you probably need about 1/3 of what you would normally use. So although the 200ml bottle may look small, it is going to last for a long time.
The Lavender & Rosemary shampoo is cruelty-free and suitable for vegans. It contains balancing certified organic ingredients which will help with itching and any irritation.
In the shampoo, you will find aloe vera which is known to condition your hair, prevent itching and reduce dandruff.
Lavender oil is another ingredient found in shampoo which helps to soothe the scalp and heal dry skin (but it’s also good for hair growth).
Once you massage the shampoo into the hair, it turns into a rich lather which cleanses hair very well. My hair feels squeaky clean after using this shampoo.
Comparing to some other natural shampoos for oily hair, it does keep hair fresh for quite long and in terms of that, I think it’s comparable to Natural Balancing Shampoo from The Seaweed Bath Company.
But how does this Irritated Scalp Shampoo work on dandruff and itchy scalp?
Before I go into detail about how the shampoo works on my hair/scalp I just want to mention that the condition of my scalp changes a lot and sometimes it feels quite itchy with lots of dandruff while other times it’s fine and I don’t find much dryness on it. I don’t know why it’s like that, but maybe it’s the food I eat or maybe I am missing some nutrients from my diet.
Anyway, when I started using Green People Irritated Scalp Shampoo, my scalp was unbelievably dry and flaky. I haven’t had it like that for a long time. I don’t know whether it’s something to do with the cold weather and central heating or something else. But it was so bad that it was a little bit embarrassing.
Thankfully, since I’ve been using Green People shampoo, the condition has improved although not totally disappeared.
I believe that using a good natural shampoo for itchy scalp is just one step. You also need to look at what you eat and see whether that could be the cause. Or maybe if you supplement with the right vitamins and minerals, the condition will improve.
It’s all about testing and seeing what works and what doesn’t but if you are looking for the best shampoo for itchy scalp and oily hair, then Lavender & Rosemary Shampoo from Green People is definitely worth trying.
