Dry scalp is a very common ailment that can be caused by a number of factors, including eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, or dandruff. Sufferers may experience itching and scaly patches on the scalp, while in some more severe cases, discharge and a change in skin colour after healing may occur — either way, finding the right treatment for your dry scalp is key.

Nizoral Shampoo is one treatment option that can relieve and eradicate a range of dry scalp-related symptoms. The active ingredient ketoconazole is an antifungal, anti-yeast medication that is used to treat certain skin conditions, and it can address issues such as dandruff by binding to the hair’s natural protein and destroying fungi and yeasts.

Experiencing symptoms of dry scalp can make you self-conscious and physically uncomfortable, but by using a dry scalp treatment such as Nizoral Shampoo, you can control flare-ups and reduce irritation and inflammation. But what do real users of this shampoo think of it? Does it reduce flaking? Does it make your scalp feel healthier?
