I can definitely atest to Neem oil. It makes the scalp so healthy "BUT it shoul do STANK" I could never leave it on overnight no matter what I mixed it with. I normally leave it on for ~2hrs and shampoo out. It will not come out with just CoWashing in my experience

Wow okay I saw this to and just got through doing a search on it. I mean does it smell worse than say Sulphur 8...the original one or the old Mane and Tail Sulphur potion (the one that smelled like burnt bacon?)

@ElizaBlue Yes it does. By far! At least with Sulphur 8 you know that's the smell of grease, albeit a strong smell. Sulphur 8 and Dax could both be recognized as hair grease. Neem Oil stinks so bad that I can't even think what to tell you it smells like.

I bought it when a lady at Whole Foods told me it's good for nails. I tried to use it, but nah suh! And we're talking about using it on finger nails which would be further than my scalp from my nose but I couldn't stand it. I washed my hands over and over to get that stench off. I dare say MTG might even smell better.

I ended up throwing the bottle away--and I'm the last person who accepts waste BTW, so this was really huge. But after holding onto it for a few years wondering what to do, I couldn't bring myself to open the bottle again and release that demonic smell; (yes, I was that scared of it ) so I just said goodbye to it.

I love neem oil. It makes my hair feel like nothing else. It defines my curls, waves my hair, incredible shine, closes the cuticle, detangles, and stops breakage. It is also a natural form of birth control, reduces pest by making them infertile.

This stuff stanks! It smells like poison mixed with peanut butter, whew. I am having a hard time explaining how noxious this is. Thick, resinous, and stanky.

Scalp massages w/oils is one of the main elements of an ayurvedic hair routine. That is no secret.

Neem is so beneficial but the smell is beyond description. I smell it and think of badly burned peanuts in concentrated form.

@RarityFluttershy Most of the words on the bottle are in hindi so I do not know what brand it is. But it is packaged by Ashwin Pharma in India. The better neem oils are cold pressed, and have the distinctive burnt peanut, and motor oil smell.

I'm over here at all of the comments on Neem oil. As a user, I can attest to the Stankness, I use it rarely and only for this scalp scrub that I do with brown sugar, neem oil and shikakai powder. Never used it on my entire head, though I may try next time.

Neem oil smells like liquified moth balls with sprinkles of mint leaves thrown in. It's bad...worse than Amla oil.

Ya'll got me over here hollering! LOL I must agree, that Neem smell is in a class of its own. There is nothing quite like it!

I was going to say the same thing, it's like a poisonous rancid peanut butter....but it works!! I have a bottle and I dab it on mosquito bites in the summer.

I had a neem and tea tree soap that works GREAT on my skin also.
