Alphosyl 2 In 1 Shampoo reviews
Alphosyl 2 In 1 Shampoo FAQs
Alphosyl is a 2-in-1 shampoo used to treat scalp conditions including eczema, psoriasis and seborrhoeic dermatitis. It reduces scaling, inflammation and dandruff caused by any of these conditions. Its active ingredient is coal tar extract, which works by limiting the growth of skin cells on the scalp. It also breaks down keratin, the protein which makes up hair and the outer layer of the skin.
Massage Alphosyl into wet hair and the scalp. After a few minutes, you should have a lather which covers the affected areas. Rinse the shampoo out of your hair, and repeat the process if required.
Alphosyl should be used one or two times per week to reduce dandruff, or once every two or three days for the other scalp conditions (e.g. eczema, psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis).
Although Alphosyl 2-in-1 shampoo is available without a prescription, you still need to follow instructions closely in order to notice improvements to your symptoms.
Do not use this shampoo if the affected area of skin is broken or infected.
Alphosyl is unsuitable for you if you may be allergic or sensitive to coal tar, or to any of its inactive ingredients such as parahydroxybenzoates. Stop using Alphosyl if you begin to notice a reaction to the product.
Alphosyl is not known to be harmful to mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding. As is the case with all medicines, though, you should consult your doctor just to be safe. This is especially important if you are in the first trimester of a pregnancy.
Alphosyl can cause discolorations of the skin, hair, or of your clothes. Seek medical assistance if you swallow any of this shampoo. Alphosyl may also increase your sensitivity to sunlight, so avoid tanning beds or excessive sunlight while using this treatment.
