This means that the ingredient contains a coconut chemical moiety that is used in the chemical ingredient structure.

Fixed my Contact Dermatitis and Scalp Acne/Hives

5 out of 5 stars

DawnFelice - 28 days ago
I am finally not scratching my scalp all day. I am not sure why I avoided Vanicream, but many shampoos are just too harsh for my skin and scalp and leave me overly dried out and flaky or breaking out. Scalp acne and hives were a regular part of washing my hair, and avoiding washing was only creating more acne issue from excess oil. I used various dandruff shampoos, scalp treatments, witch hazel, acne creams, jojoba oil, and nothing would stop the breakouts or the flaking skin which were happening simultaneously. Finally, the acne is drying out and healing, no itching, and virtually no more flaking skin. I need to continue to use this indefinitely and will be getting other Vanicream items.

So I loved that it’s fragrance free as I’m allergic to it. I’m usually a HUGE vanicream fan but this one just didn’t do it for me. It’s hard to get a good lather without using a ton, even with 2 washes. It also left my hair feeling a little dry. Not for me :(

It's okay. It doesn't really smell like anything which is good. Feels like a "clean product" which I like. I have relatively sensitive skin and it hasn't acted up since using this product. My biggest complaint is that it doesn't lather well. I find that I use a lot of shampoo because it doesn't feel like it's cleaning my hair with just a small amount. That's my biggest issue with it, but I do appreciate that it's dermatologist tested and free of chemicals.

It's good for oily hair/roots but it dries the ends. I recommend on using travel size bottle; put a little(1/2 to 1 inch) and add water to it; the shampoo will last a little bit longer.

It was recommended by my dermatologist to counteract allergies generated by the use of commercial shampoos which contain dyes and perfumes. A small amount of this shampoo cleans the hair thoroughly, which helps justify the higher price.

Tried their moisturizer and face wash and loved it so bought their shampoo and conditioner. Left my scalp feeling not dry. The other shampoos left my scalp feeling dry and itchy but not this one. No harsh chemicals so this is fantastic.

If you just need to wash your hair without getting a skin reaction, this is good. It's about as basic as it gets, though. It didn't do a thing for my hair.

Kim - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I’m really liking it so far. I have seborrheic and contact dermatitis. I was using everything from ketoconazole, t-gel to clinical strength head and shoulders. I have used this product for 3 days now and my scalp is finally starting to heal. It’s still flaking in the spots that were really bad patchy sores (to the point that they were bleeding) but it’s no longer red and itchy. My dermatologist recommended it to me and I’m never looking back! I left a star off bc I do wish it was more moisturizing to my hair and not feel so stripped when I wash it out. But overall great if you are experiencing sensitivity.

I'm on Accutane and my scalp became so very itchy and painful. This was recommended by my dermatologist and after one use it felt 95% better. After the second wash the itch was completely gone and my dandruff subsided. Crazy how effective it is.

This product is not great for people with very sensitive skin. It caused a terrible eczema flare up for me on my face and scalp. I used Cereve baby shampoo and a prescription shampoo to remedy the issue and that has worked well so far. Unfortunately, it’s trial by fire with some of these products!

I am so thankful that Target carries Vanicream products. I use Vanicream hair and skin products. They are fragrance free and they help my itchy skin. I hope Target will continue to increase the number of Vanicream products they carry.

I have psoriasis and during a bad flare up, I was trying to find a new shampoo to help my scalp psoriasis. My former coworker recommended vanicream and I found this shampoo and the lotion at Target. I've been using it for over a year and it has helped my scalp SO MUCH! I will never use those medicated, steroid infused shampoos again, this has been a little life saver and I will always recommend vanicream to anyone!

Dries out scalp to the point of severe itchiness. I would not recommend. I have very sensitive skin and known allergies to certain ingredients in products. I would rather use an allergen shampoo and get hives than use this.
