Review: Puretopia Sensitive Care Gentle Cleansing Hair & Scalp Shampoo

I have mild psoriasis on my scalp and have been using my trust Neutrogena T Gel shampoo for over 2 years now but it does have a fragrance that gets some getting used to. When I saw that Puretopia also has a shampoo for sensitive and irritated scalp, I decided to try it hoping it may rival my trusty Neutrogena T Gel shampoo.

Puretopia Sensitive Care Gentle Cleansing Hair and Scalp ($10.99) shampoo says

The combination of moisturising botanical cleansers, oat and wheat proteins in a fragrance free formula works to gently cleanse both the hair and scalp that is irritated and sensitive. The result will be soft manageable hair and a soothed scalp.

The first thing I noticed was how much the consistency of the shampoo looked like glue! I was hesitant at this point to wash my hair with this as I was picturing my hair becoming stuck with glue everywhere. Anyway, I pushed on and lathered it into my hair. Now, the shampoo spreads easily but does not lather up. This wasn’t an issue for me (but may be for you?) as I always shampoo my hair twice before conditioning. Without conditioning, my hair did feel clean but also very knotty. You definitely need to follow up with a conditioner or hair treatment. Afterwards, my hair felt soft and clean, and my scalp was not irritated or made any worse by the shampoo. True to its word, there is no discernible smell, just a very clinical, botanical scent which, I am assuming, is derived from the “botanical cleansers, oat and wheat proteins”.

Price-wise, it is a bit expensive compared to regular supermarket brands but when compared with premium haircare bands, the price is reasonable. As for whether it replaces my HG shampoo, not necessarily. Both are similar in price and I will be alternating between my Neutrogena T Gel and this Puretopia one as it’s very hard to find a scalp treatment shampoo that works!
