 Philip Kingsley Flakey/Itchy Scalp Shampoo & Toner review

An embarrassing problem right? Sure it's a pain, but 1. It shouldn't be (it happens to the best of us) and 2. Philip Kingsley doesn't think so, it's right there on the bottle not hidden around the back in small print. 

I recently had an allergic reaction to a shampoo, leaving me with a painful and yes.. flakey scalp. So after a few weeks of trying to convince myself that it would fix itself, I finally bit the bullet and found these products having seen Lily speak about them on her Instagram story. 

Its hard to find a shampoo designed for targeting dandruff/flakey scalp that doesn't strip the colour out of your hair, which considering I recently had a trip to Samantha Cusick for balayage I wasn't willing to risk. 
Lily's recommendation didn't disappoint- this is an extremely gentle and soothing shampoo which is mild enough for daily use. It has a lovely apple fragrance too. My scalp is on the mend and significantly less flakey than it was a few weeks ago.

In purchasing this product, I also saw that Philip Kingsley has a flakey/itchy scalp toner. Having never heard of a toner for your scalp I was intrigued so picked up the travel size bottle. This toner has an anti-microbial and anti-flaking formula that claims (and delivers) immediate and long lasting relief from dandruff and irritation. I section my hair into strips and dispense a little all over my scalp, then dry my hair like normal. It doesn't leave any residue is is extremely cooling. This addition has a big thumbs up from me and I will continue to use this just for the soothing nature.
