The 8 page guide discusses the best shampoo and conditioners for normal use and those that are especially useful in fighting dandruff.
Hair loss could be a side effect of a medication that a person is taking. There is a list of drugs that may cause hair loss. Although some of them are essential treatments for life-threatening diseases such as cancer, many others have alternatives that might be less likely to cause this distressing problem. The guide can help you prepare to discuss this ÒminorÓ side effect with the prescriber.
There is also a discussion of nail fungus, and a number of medications and home remedies that can be helpful against this common and persistent problem.
Great info, thanks. My experience: the prescription shampoo ketoconazole will affect the texture of hair, make it brittle, gummy, and cause hair to break easily. It’s a great med for the scalp condition itself, but damages the hair shaft. Shouldn’t be used very often; should primarily contact the scalp and not the hair itself.
Thank you for this information sheet.
Very helpful! Provided many non-prescription and safe alternatives!
Thanks for the OTC measures for managing weak and splitting nails.
This was informative and helpful.
Informative and well-done article.
Interesting information and appreciate the efforts it took to put this information together.
Very informative. New uses on both hair & nails that I was glad to get!
