    Olux works like a dream! Olux-e (has green bottle or cap) is a nightmare. Makes your hair so oily you have to rewash have your hair. With regular olux you can use it after a shower, dry your hair and then go on with your day. Your hair looks clean and best of all psoriasis is gone for several months before needing to do another treatment. Be sure to ask your doctor for olux only.

    This stuff is better that white bread!! Easy to use, after a few days my scalp is clear of any psoriasis. Works so much better than tar shampoo and doesnt tint my gray hair a funny yellow color.

    Olux worked quickly and effectively for scalp. The newer OLUX E is a mess...it is oily and the foam does not melt as quickly, and does not cover the scalp area as much, gets lost in the hair. I used more of the Olux E than the original OLUX, and therefore spent more money...without a prescription plan....IT is an ungodly price!!!

    I really like Olux. It has helped clear up my scalp more than any other product I have tried. (Used in combination with Neutrogena T Gel)
