Super excited about this post - from the moment these beauties arrived in the post a few weeks back I couldn't wait to try them out.

I've followed KeraCare for a while now but always associated the product with permed hair as my hairdresser at the time recommended them.
Since going natural a year ago (OMG its a bloody year!) I've been the ultimate product junkie looking for the best fit for my outrageously thick hair.

Hunting for a product that will help with my gwad damn itchy scalp has not been easy but rest assure I think KaraCare maybe on to a winner!

I have the fortunate (and sometimes unfortunate) mix of hair textures and combinations because I'm mixed race. The thick oily textures originate from my Vietnamese mother combined with the dry, tight curled, fizzy texture from my Nigerian father. Which results in a dry, itchy scalp and horrible dandruff.
I hide it well of course - but usually when I wear weaves it irritates me the most as I'm forever in ghetto scratch mode whenever and wherever - for those who do not know what the ghetto scratch is, see explanation via YouTube >>>. Example here lol.

Dry and Itchy Scalp Anti Dandruff Moisturising Shampoo
For all you natural hair people you know we try to stay away from shampoos that contains sulfate as it tends to strip away our natural oils so when reading the ingredients, I was slightly hesitant. Although as soon as I started shampooing my locks I could feel the mentholated shampoo work it's magic throughout my scalp. It definitely gave my hair a much needed clean and wash!
I usually wash my hair around 3 times before adding conditioner but I reckon with this shampoo you could get away with 2 washes and still feel clean.

Dry and Itchy Scalp Anti Dandruff Moisturising Conditioner 
The conditioner posses a different consistency from my normal conditioner - it reminded of that glue we used to use in primary school. Primary school glue aside, it felt oh so good on my hair!
The bottle recommends you leave the conditioner on for 15-20 minutes but I usually do a deep condition and leave it on for a day. I rinsed it out the next day after my gym session and it undeniably revitalises my hair. Any hesitations I had regarding the sulfate in the shampoo - this conditioner put it to bed as it replaces all your natural oils and more!

Dry and Itchy Scalp Glossifier
I usually wash my hair every fortnight and I've only used this twice in-between washes.
1st time, after I washed my hair and the 2nd time in the 2nd week. 
I would be lying if I said that my hair didn't itch for two weeks but I have to say it helped keep my hair, dandruff free. I usually get dry scalp at the front of my hairline but no dry scalp this time baby!
Minimal itching and no dandruff for two weeks! 
Pretty good to me!

Overall 4 out of 5 the sulfate shampoo is the only reason why I knocked it down but the conditioner makes up for it!
