How does ketoconazole work?

Ketoconazole has some anti-inflammatory effects. These are all assumptions, the real mechanism of the effect of ketoconazole on the thickness and diameter of the hair is incomprehensible.

Editorial Board

If you want to improve the condition of your hair, special attention should be paid to shampoos that you use.

A frightening figure - in 97% of shampoos of famous brands are substances that poison our body.

These chemicals destroy the structure of the hair, the hair becomes brittle, lose elasticity and strength, the color fades. But the worst thing is that this stuff gets into the liver, heart, lungs, accumulates in the organs and can cause cancer.

We advise you to abandon the use of funds in which these substances are located. Recently, experts of our editorial staff conducted an analysis of sulfate-free shampoos, where the first place was taken by funds from the company Mulsan Cosmetic. The only manufacturer of all-natural cosmetics. All products are manufactured under strict quality control and certification systems.

We recommend to visit the official online store If you doubt the naturalness of your cosmetics, check the expiration date, it should not exceed one year of storage.

Possible adverse symptoms

Despite its usefulness, ketocanazole has a number of side effects that may affect the overall condition of the user. The fact is that the human body is arranged individually, therefore there is a possibility of protective reaction on certain components of the drug. In most cases, the composition of the shampoo does not contribute to the appearance of irritations or other symptoms.

Before using the shampoo, it is recommended to consult a doctor. In case of the following complications, it is not necessary to self-medicate:

  • In some cases, the use of ketocanazole provokes skin diseases such as itching, local irritation of the skin, as well as the occurrence of contact dermatitis.
  • Very rarely, an adverse reaction is manifested in the disruption of the sebaceous glands.
  • The most unlikely symptom of rejection is a change in the amount of color in the hair color. Can occur in owners of gray or dyed hair.

This drug is not intended for oral administration. If this happened randomly, then there is the likelihood of the following symptoms:

  • Contact with the drug in the eyes causes a burning sensation, which, if removed, should be flushed with water.
