Nizoral is the only shampoo containing the patented active ingredient ketoconazole, medically proven to be effective against Pityorosporum ovale, the organism which most skin specialists agree is the cause of dandruff. Most other anti-dandruff shampoos work by normalising the pH of the scalp. That is, they try and modify the environment which allows the fungi to survive.

Nizoral 2% Shampoo is the only shampoo containing the patented active ingredient ketoconazole, medically proven to be effective against Pityorosporum ovale, the organism which most skin specialists agree is the cause of dandruff. Most other anti-dandruff shampoos work by normalising the pH of the scalp. That is, they try and modify the environment which allows the fungi to survive. A more effective option is to eradicate the causative organism directly by using an anti-fungal agent. Nizoral is the number one choice of doctors and pharmacists, who have recommended Nizoral to millions of dandruff sufferers all over the world.
Nizoral shampoo is also unique because it's effect is long-lasting. Even after rinsing, Nizoral carries on working for several days. This means that you don't need to use Nizoral every day making it extremely cost-effective. And unlike some other anti-dandruff treatments, Nizoral shampoo has a pleasant fragrance and is pH balanced leaving hair soft, healthy and clean.
As dandruff is not always limited strictly to the scalp, Nizoral is also available as a cream which is especially useful for treating dry, flaky skin and seborrhoeic dermatitis around the eyebrows, in the beard, and in the folds around the nose. E-mail us for details.
How do I get the best results from Nizoral Shampoo?
Initial treatment phase:
Use Nizoral Shampoo twice a week for the first four weeks. Wet hair and pour a little shampoo into the palm of your hand. Massage well into the scalp (you can even use Nizoral as your second wash after an ordinary shampoo). Allow Nizoral to penetrate the scalp by leaving it on for 3 - 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
Use Nizoral once every one to two weeks to prevent dandruff coming back (as above). Between treatments you can use your regular shampoo and conditioner.
