Can nizoral shampoo help me prevent hair loss?
The answer is yes: nizoral shampoo can definitely help you prevent hair loss, but only on specific occasions.
This shampoo contains an ingredient called ketoconazole, which is an antifungal, used to cure fungi infections and yeasts.
The way it does it is by stopping these parasites from producing in their cell membranes a particular substance that it is needed for their procreation.
The most spread scalp skin infections that can be cured with nizoral is a fungus called Pityrosporum ovale, which is in part responsible for seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff.
Kill the fungus that creates dandruff and triggers hair thinning
This fungus feeds with the oil produced on our scalp (called sebum) and transforms it in fatty acids highly irritating for the sebaceous glands.
Sebum contains one of the two forms of dht (the hormone that attacks and shrinks the hair follicles) and when produced in high quantities, can be really devastating for the health of the follicles.
One of the ways you can control sebum secretion is by killing the fungi that irritate the glands.
Ketoconazole shampoo can be used to wash the affected areas and it is very effective in eliminating the skin parasites.
For dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis it should be used twice weekly for two to four weeks.
These two conditions can be prevented from coming back by using the shampoo once or twice a month.
With Nizoral you can prevent male hair loss
You should discontinue its use if you realize you are allergic or sensitive to any of its ingredients.
Let your doctor know if you have previously experienced such an allergy, and discontinue its use, choosing may be a all natural way to take care of your dandruff or dermatitis (such as a baking soda based shampoo).
Here are some of the side effects that are known to be linked to this product:
- Burning sensation.
- Allergic inflammation of the skin.
- Burning feeling and itching.
This happens because Nizoral, besides ketoconazole, contains also some aggressive ingredients, and this is the reason why it should be used really carefully, following the instructions.
