I bought this as it was the only weleda shampoo that seemed appropriate for a oil prone scalp (I usually need to wash my hair every 2 days) and it was herbal based rather than medicated. Love it! Doesn't weigh down my hair, and my scalp feels very comfortable and healthy. I use it with the oat conditioner, which is equally fabulous. I regularly blow dry and curl my hair, and it keeps it very healthy. Delicious scent too.
