Review: Nizoral Shampoo with Ketoconazole 20mg/gm

I finally consulted a pharmacist when all anti-dandruff treatments I tried failed. Some, like Lador Tea Tree Scalp Mask and Innisfree Zero Shampoo work, but only temporarily. You need a real medicine for medical conditioner that ordinary over-the-counter remedies can’t help.

I am really glad that my pharmacist recommended me this Nizoral Shampoo. Nizoral Shampoo is basically a medicated shampoo with the active ingredient ketoconazole to kill fungi and yeasts. It works by stopping the fungi from producing a substance called ergosterol, which is an essential component of fungal cell membranes, which cause a hole to appear in the cell membrane. This will help to kill the fungi since their cell membranes are vital for their survival.

I got it, my problem comes from fungal infection, not dandruff alone. Those people in Yum Nam keeps asking me to spend thousands to exfoliate and clear out deeply trapped dead skin cells on my scalp, while in fact my problem can be easily solved with a medicated shampoo that costs me around RM30.

My pharmacist recommended that I use it once every two or three days. Don’t use any other shampoos when using this. Also, don’t wash my hair when I am not using this shampoo.

I love washing my hair. So it is kinda torturing not to wash it everyday. But somehow I realize that my hair produces less oil and feels less uncomfortable when I am switching over to this shampoo!

the texture feels and smells like normal shampoo

it has a slightly acidic pH at around 4.5-5.0

The result is immediate. Within a week, I can see a significant reduction in my dandruff. Those grey flakes usually scatter around my car seat is much reduced. In about two weeks, they are gone. A month later, my scalp no longer feels itchy and flaky. I don’t have the urge to scratch it anymore. And surprisingly, given how drying this shampoo is, my hair remains smooth and soft. Of course, I do apply some hair serum from time to time to give it some nourishments.


In short, I think after all these years of struggling with dandruff, I finally find my cure. And it is a simple, affordable cure that can be found in any local pharmacy, which is why I really want to share with all of you in case you are still suffering from flaky, itchy and dandruff scalp!
