Neutrogena T Gel Shampoo is marketed to be for oily and dandruff ridden hair. It comes in a small 125ml bottle with blue packaging. The first thing I noticed about this shampoo is the smell; the unique amber scent. It is designed to provide a fresh formula that produces a delicate lather and gentle enough to be used as a daily wash. It contains the following note-worthy ingredients:
- Salicylic acid
Salicylic acid in this shampoo is used as an exfoliant which has a drying effect on the scalp. The acid strips the natural oil. Most hair expert say that regular exposure to Zinc will lower oil production.
After I used this product, just once, my hair didn’t smell at all and my hair looked fresh and volumised, even after working a 12 hour shift. This shampoo doesn’t have an over bearing fragrance like some other, it contains a very unique amber scent. A big advantage to this product is that I didn’t need to leave it on and only a small amount was required. I even received a few compliments from my co-works on how shiny and healthy my hair looked. To use, I applied a small amount to my wet hair, lathered it up and then rinsed thoroughly. I recommend repeating if you desire a good clean. I couldn’t believe the results afterwards. Magical shampoo.
The only drawback to this wonderful Neutrogena T Gel Shampoo is the fact is contains salicylic acid. As I mentioned above, the acid does work against the oil in your scalp, by removing the natural oils. The advertisements recommend to use daily, but I disagree if you have a sensitive scalp like myself.
Some user did comment negatively on the smell and felt it smelled very medical. However, this was not the case at all for me. Each to their own I suppose – don’t let the smell put you off.
Hope this T Gel review has been helpful. For the first time in a long time, I didn’t need to wash my hair again within 12 hours. My hair was left looking healthy, volumised and grease free. Unfortunately, this shampoo only comes in little bottle, but don’t let that put you off. If you’re desperate to try something new and relieve that forever oily feeling, try this T-Gel.
