I have used T-gel daily for decades and quite like the slightly tarry odor which never left my hair smelling other than fresh and clean. The new, perfumed formulation is not to my taste, but at least the scent doesn't linger and I have continued to use it. ( In these days of increased allergies why do manufacturers continue to bombard us with perfumed products?) What I am upset about is that it is becoming more difficult to find T-gel, especially in the 16 oz. bottles. As long as it is available, I will stick with Neutrogena (in the 16 oz size), even if it is a little more expensive.
