If you suffer from minor scalp conditions, it is important to find the right shampoo product to try and combat the irritation or discomfort caused by the condition. Alphosyl 2 In 1 Shampoo is a gentle, herbal shampoo and conditioner combination that can be used to cleanse the scalp and relieve a number of common conditions.
When washing or shampooing the hair, avoid scratching the scalp and try to avoid styling products until the dandruff/dry skin has cleared.
A range of minor scalp conditions can be treated with a good medicated shampoo, and Alphosyl 2 In 1 Shampoo is ideal if you want a fresh, medicated shampoo that includes a conditioner that is gentle on the scalp and hair.
This product can be used to provide relief if you suffer from conditions such as itchy scalp, dandruff, psoriasis, or seborrhoeic dermatitis. The shampoo should be used once or twice a week to help combat dandruff or every two or three days to help provide relief if you suffer from other minor scalp conditions.
Dandruff is the shedding of dry skin cells from the surface of the scalp and there are many diferent products that work in different ways that are avialable to treat it. Coal tar, the active ingredient in Alphosyl, works in two ways. Firstly slows down skin cell production and secondly causes the dead skin cells to be shed from the scalp thus reducing the apperance of dandruff.
