Benefits of key Ingredients:

Itching and dandruff can be caused by a range of conditions, from an excessively dry or oily scalp, to eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or fungal infections. The main ingredients in Hope’s Relief Shampoo help to soothe and ease conditions like these.

  • Manuka Honey is antibacterial & anti-inflammatory; it soothes itching & softens the hair, improves follicle health & prevents hair loss. It’s great for soothing an eczema-prone scalp.
  • Aloe Vera is very soothing, with anti-inflammatory & conditioning effects. It also reduces dandruff & promotes hair growth. Aloe has alkalising properties that make it ideal for inhibiting the fungal growth that can lead to dandruff.
  • Calendula is an ultra-soothing plant, great for protecting sensitive scalps from free radicals & bacteria.
  • Licorice hydrates the scalp, strengthens the hair shaft, promotes healthy hair growth & reduces dandruff.
  • Gotu kola improves blood circulation in the scalp by relaxing the blood vessels, thereby promoting hair growth.

Hope’s Relief products are created to provide special care for sensitive, dry and eczema-prone skin.

It's a fantastic product. I highly recommend it.

Works ok-ish. Clears flakes most of the time, other times not. Might work better with the conditioner, as stated on the box.

Really expensive and didn't help with my scalp condition long term. Rather go for medicated shampoo. Especially for this price.
10/07/2020, By Nikki
Very runny and if anything, makes my scalp even worse... that being said, I battle with most shampoos with my scalp. I bought this on recommendation from many people it did work for... just does not work for me.

Really helps with my hair.

Relieves itchiness and flakiness impressively. Application is a bit difficult due to the consistency. Highly recommend
04/06/2020, By Louine
Very impressed with the product! Within 2 washes the difference is noticable. Would however prefer a spray applicator, as it is difficult to use due to the watery consistancy.

31/05/2020, By Audrey
Unfortunately this shampoo is VERY liquid - a lot is lost in the shower. Maybe consider another type of dispenser? pArt from that it REALLY does the job for an itchy scalp - HIGHLY recommended!!

Ecstatic with the results

Very runny - very expensive and did not work for me.

Real stuff
29/01/2020, By Melissa
I suffer from both seborrheic dermatitis as well as mild psoriasis on my scalp. It became so bad that I had to shave my hair bald so that I could properly treat my condition! This shampoo really helps treat my condition, it's safe to use every day and really keeps my scalp healthy and clean. I can't recall when last I've had such a beautiful scalp. Will continue using the product

My daughter and I suffer from scalp-related issues and this shampoo, while not a cure, has pretty-much eliminated the itchiness and reduced dandruff build up on the scalp. Unfortunately, it is very expensive and doesn't give you many washes so we only use it once or twice a week. I just wish there was a cheaper locally produced formulation what is as effective.
14/11/2019, By Elizabeth
It works really well - but it is a thin runny consistency. So I use it conjunction with another shampoo because I have thick hair and its easy to use a lot of it because of the consistency.
18/06/2019, By Rebecca
My son has been using this since I bought it, so 2 weeks. It has helped enormously. As a teenager his itchy scalp and scales was really getting him down. Now he is more confident and his hair looks lovely.

It worked for me. Fantastic product.
22/12/2018, By Pat
For such an expensive shampoo it really didn't put a dent in the itchiness of my scalp. Will not buy again.
14/10/2018, By Siobhan
This didn't really help. It was gentel on my scalp but I still had a bit of an itch. It was okay while it lasted however I may not purchase this brand again. I will try some other Natural shampoo on this site until I find the perfect one. In my personal opinion this was not value for money.
08/06/2018, By Megan
A very nice shampoo.
02/03/2018, By Dedre
This shampoo did not really help with my itchy and flaky scalp. Due to its runny and watery consistency it can be wasteful and one also has to use quite a bit to work up any sort of lather. I will have to search for another product.
29/10/2017, By MC
I was going through a period where my scalp was unbearably itchy and this shampoo helped a lot ...and lasted quite a long time too. Very pricey, wouldn't buy regularly, but will buy again if needed!
11/08/2017, By Lindsey
This product helped my scalp a small amount but I could not justify the price. If it worked amazingly well after a week or so then I would have no problem paying this much.
24/06/2016, By Natalie
The Shampoo really helped relieve my itchy scalp. Due to its runny consistancy it can be wasteful and one also has to use quite a bit to work up any sort of lather. I used it daily so it only lasted 2 weeks. However, used in conjunction with the conditioner its brilliant. The manufacturers should look into thickening the consistancy.
26/05/2015, By Alex
I tried this product, twice a day for over two weeks. Deeply massaged it into my scalp and let it sink in for a minute or so before washing it out. My scalp is no better off with use of this product. In fact my scalp appears to be far more flaky and tight than when I was using regular headshoulders.

I see some others have found relief, but this product is a miss for me. On a side note, it does wonders for hair. But for the scalp, which is what I really wanted it for... it does nothing for me. So I won be forking out all that moola for this again.

I bought it because of all the good reviews, but sadly it did not work for me. I have very fine and thin hair, and this shampoo made my hair and scalp feel VERY oily / waxy and heavy. I used a tiny amount of the shampoo and I even diluted it with water, but nothing worked, its very difficult to wash out of my hair. I have eczema and it made my scalp feel more itchy. Maybe its better for people with very dry scalp and thick hair...
20/04/2015, By Adele
The price is cringe-worthy, but so worth it! Only someone with an itchy scalp will now how it drains your energy and joy. Although most of the natural shampoos have improved the condition of my scalp nothing has ever come close to Hopes Relief. After four weeks NO MORE ITCHING! May be over dramatic, but this shampoo changed my life!

My kids have cradle cap and my toddler has eczema and this shampoo lifted the cradle cap off the scalp and their air was super clean. Love it!

I have psoriasis on top of my scalp. This product has a very runny consitensy and is quite expensive, but that aside it works! If I could afford to, Id only use this brand.
