THANK GOD i found this stuff! My scalp itchiness was driving me crazy,I'd be lying in bed at night willing myself not to scratch! From the very first time the itchiness was relieved and now I have no scalp problems.You dont even have to use it much to be effective,this is the only product that works for me and I tried heaps of them.GREAT product.
It's the only shampoo that gets me rid of the huge flakes and itch I get once in a while. I leave it in for 5 minutes before rincing, Neutrogena T-Gel never helped, nor did Selsun blue. I'm careful never to run out of this miracle poo, even though I (thankfully) use it seldom.
If you suffer from dandruff or psoriasis, I highly recommend Nizoral. My scalp psoriasis used to be severe and extremely embarrasing until I found this product. Now, I hardly ever have to think about the condition of my scalp. I shampoo with this twice a week and use a gentle shampoo on the other days. My only suggestion is that you leave it on your scalp a couple minutes before rinsing. I get better results that way. Give it a try. I hope you find relief like I did.
Nizoral is the BEST!!! I've tried salon brands for my extreme dandruff (my flakes around the face were huge and looked like crust - yuk!) but this was the only thing that worked long-term. Highly recommend!
Nizoral is a MIRACLE product!!! I'd give it 10 lippies if I could. I've tried everything on the market. This really works as a real cure and is worth every cent.
I recommend following it up with a good conditioner, and it you have a reaction, wash your hair in the sink or tub so you don't get it on your skin. I've NEVER had any irratation whatsoever with this product.
I had some dandruff and used this product on the advice of the chemist at my local shop. I used it as directed for less than two weeks, and began to notice patches of irritated, blotchy skin on my elbows and inner arms. I immediately stopped using the product, but it was too late; my arms, legs, face, torso, and scalp suddenly became completely inflamed with the worst rash I have ever seen or experienced.
Anywhere that had touched the lather, which was ironically quite fluffy and pleasing, broke out into a rash. I have never in my entire life been in so much pain or misery. It took over two months for the rash to recede, and only after many visits to the doctor for mega-antihistamines and cremes. I even had to use hydrocortisone creme on my face - something normally patently not recommended because it thins out the skin - on multiple doctors' orders.
I absolutely do not recommend this product to anyone with even slightly sensitive skin, or anyone with skin allergies.
I remember several years ago, I used prescription strength Nizoral with much success, but found this OTC version ineffective. I just gave this another shot and it's still ineffective. Maybe I'm weird, but I found that Garnier Anti-Dandruff, imperfect as it is, worked better on me than this stuff; at least the Garnier somewhat controlled my flakes if it didn't eliminate them. This did nothing. I'm happy so many MUAers have had success with this but thumbs down for me. Perhaps I should see a dermatologist or something.
Nizoral AD works great for me also! I have tried just about every other dandruff remedy. And they all work, to an extent. But they all smell AWFUL! Not this one. It smells like a normal shampoo.
After trying what seemed like every product on the market for dandruff or dry flakey scalp for years this is the only product that has ever worked for me. I use a good conditioner after using it though because it can dry my hair our a bit.
It may depend upon the cause of your scalp problem whether it works for you or not... worked great for me but didn't work for a relative.
This is the best shampoo out there for dandruff and other scalp problems. I had some irritation on my scalp and was getting blood on my hands a few times. I went to see my doctor and she suggested this shampoo and told me to avoid touching my scalp while I brush my hair. Well within 3 uses, my problems were over. The itching goes away with first wash, and then from then onwards, I use it once a week or two. It is quite expensive but totally worth it. I leave it on for about 5-10 mins in the shower and it leaves my hair soo silky and refreshed. A definite must in your bathroom!
