Do you want to deny yourself?
Is it worth finding yourself in bed, 93, looking back on your life and thinking, "if I could only have sniffed just once."
I have thick, mangley, curly brown hair. It wasn't curly all my life and most of the time I just look like a cave lady because I don't know what to do with it. Every hairdresser straightens it, even though I tell them I'm not going to do that.
I put in a little bit of coconut/Shea butter creme after using this shampoo and before I went to bed. When I woke up the next morning, my curls were soft, my eczema was already minimal (shocking!) and I didn't have to sign my hair down before going outside.
So, I'm not kidding when I tell you that this stuff works. If you have course/dry hair, eczema on your scalp, or just like campfire smells... Get it. You will not regret it. As far as the insect deterrent, I can't really say if it helps because I use a conditioner over it, but if you're a dude I'd try it.
The most common dandruff shampoos (Head & Shoulders being the prominent market leader) are built around pyrithione zinc (sometimes listed as zinc pyrithione) as the active ingredient. Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database, classifying it as a class 5 “moderate hazard,” is hardly enthusiastic about pyrithione zinc, and several developed nations have limited its use in consumer products. Aside from its safety, however, it simply never has worked on my particular form of dandruff. Its effectiveness has been zero or so near to zero as to appear to be zero.
Another group of dandruff shampoos -- Neutrogena T-Sal is an example -- is built around salicylic acid as the active ingredient. Although salicylic acid is a close relative of aspirin, Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database rates it as a class 7 “high hazard” ingredient. Hazard or not, salicylic acid shampoos have never been effective on my scalp to reduce my dandruff.
In most states -- sale is restricted or forbidden in some states -- some shampoos are available in which the active ingredient is COAL tar. Coal tar is a known carcinogen. Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database ranks coal tar as a class 10 (TEN!) “high hazard.” Unaware of the dangers at the time, I tried coal tar-based dandruff shampoos in the past, and they seemed to be moderately effective on my dandruff. Better informed now of its carcinogenic properties, I would be uncomfortable with my family using any coal tar shampoo regularly over the long term.
Another “tar” product used in dandruff shampoos is PINE tar oil (pinus paulustris). Of all the dandruff control products that I ever have tried, the ones that worked the best all were “pine tar” shampoos. I have tried a few brands, among which “Tannenbaum” Pine Tar Shampoo (which Amazon sells as “Heritage Store Hair” shampoo) Heritage Store Hair Shampoo, Pine Tar, 12 Ounce has worked remarkably well for me over the years; effective in solving the dandruff problem. (In 2010, I posted a review on this site of that “Tannenbaum” Pine Tar Shampoo here on Amazon, but — at some point, I do not know when — Amazon deleted all reviews of the product that had been posted before 2013, so you no longer can read that review.) And Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database rates pinus paulustris as a class 1 “low hazard,” a level of risk close to the risk from using distilled water.
So: why did I purchase a bottle of Packer’s Pine Tar Shampoo — the subject of this review — to try out? Why not stick with “Tannenbaum”? While the active ingredient of pine tar shampoos is — indeed — pine tar, most of them, including “Tannenbaum,” contain SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) or SLES (sodium laureth sulfate), or both, as the main cleaning ingredient(s). SLS is a very, very common cleanser; you can find it in many household detergents, and its lack of toxicity is fairly well confirmed (EWG ranks it as a class 3 “moderate hazard”). Read the ingredient list of best-selling major shampoos, and you will find either SLS or SLES, or both, on most of the labels. In the case of “Tannenbaum” Pine Tar Shampoo, the concentration of SLS and SLES appear to be fairly high. “Tannenbaum” cleans really well, and quite aggressively. My hair and scalp feel squeaky clean after shampooing with “Tannenbaum.”
But in my use, “Tannenbaum” seemed to be TOO aggressive a cleanser for frequent use. If I use “Tannenbaum” more than once within a period of a week or ten days, my hair gets pretty dry and brittle. Even a good conditioner seems overmatched to the task of rehydrating my hair then.
Enter Packer’s Pine Tar Shampoo. Claiming to be the “original” pine tar shampoo, Packer’s cleansing agents do not include SLS or SLES. It promises the benefit of pine tar dandruff reduction without the overly aggressive cleaning and (at least for me) drying effects of SLS and SLES.
Strictly as a shampoo, Packer’s is very satisfactory. It cleans my hair and scalp at least as well as any of the best selling products from Procter & Gamble or Alberto Culver or Schwarzkopf. As a dandruff shampoo, however, it is only moderately more effective -- though probably safer and more environmentally friendly -- than dandruff shampoos based on pyrithione zinc or salicylic acid; it is not as effective on my dandruff as the SLS/SLES-based “Tannenbaum” pine tar shampoo. Overall, that's not a bad score. I can recommend Packer’s without crossing my fingers behind my back.
Personally, however, we will go back to our long-established regimen of using a non-dandruff shampoo for daily or every other day shampooing. For that purpose, we use (depending on our mood and pocketbook):
• the economical▻ Shikai - Natural Everyday Shampoo, 12 fl oz liquid
(▻we pump it into our own bottle from a gallon bottle at a brick-and-mortar store) or
• the somewhat more expensive Andalou Naturals Moisture Rich Shampoo, Argan and Sweet Orange, 11.5 Ounce
(which will leave your hair smelling like an orange LifeSaver candy, which you may love or may hate) or
• the very pricey but excellent Enjoy Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo, 10.1-Ounce
— all three of which are superior from a body, manageability, and softness standpoint to Packer's.
We supplement that regular cleansing every ten days or so by shampooing with a pine tar shampoo, either “Tannenbaum” or Packer’s. Two shampoo bottles take up more space in the shower than one does, but that is the only means that we have found to get the best of both worlds.
