  1. I really like the shampoo with menthol, especially in the summer heat. He is very refreshing hair.

  2. I love the way menthol shampoo feels on my hair. The minty scent still remains on my hair even after rinsing it with warm water. As a matter of fact, I always smell the minty scent the entire afternoon after washing my hair.

  3. In spite of its tantalizing scent, my dermatologist still cautioned me against using menthol shampoo. For starters, I should not use the shampoo if I have tears on my skin. Secondly, I should stop using the product the moment I feel burning sensations on my scalp.

    I concur. After using the menthol shampoo, I did feel slight burning sensations on my scalp after it came into contact with a fresh scar.
