    You know how people with mental disorders stop taking their meds because they feel better? I've never understood this probably because I don't have first hand experience. I guess now I do.

    As a black Hispanic, I definitely wash my hair more than I should...probably every other day. The fact is I work out most days and sweat too much not to wash my hair that often. Since about 14 y.o., I have had VERY bad dandruff and dry scalp. I am 30 now and no product has every completey "healed" my scalp. Last year, my cousin recommended this to me and whoa game changer. It works so well I forgot I have a problem. I stopped taking my meds! Well I am suffering now. I'm scratching my head like a fiend. Flakes everywhere. It's nasty.

    I just ordered more and will not forget that I am challenged and need my meds (DHS Zinc) to live a happy and productive life. Lesson learned.

    I bought this product because I have a skin condition on my eyelids and ears. A dermatologist recommened that I use the ZNP bar, which is no longer available. I thought using a product with similar ingredients would work well for me for this purpose - but apparently, whatever I have is not responding to this 2% pri/zinc. It was a good try. The best thing I've found is tar shampoo and salicylic acid shampoos for my condition. I wasn't putting the shampoo on my eyelids, but it slid down my face and got in my eyes anyway. OUCH is all I can say!

      Comments about DHS Zinc Shampoo Pyrithione Zinc 2%, 16 fl oz:

      I took it to my beautician and I leave it there so she can use it when she does my hair.
      I have less itching, some healed areas that were open. It leaves my hair feeling very soft and shiny. I love it. No odor left on my hair. I am 77 and have a lot of little bumps that appear and need treated at the dermatologist office. I am hoping this lessens them. He is the one that prescribed it for me.

          Works on my dermititis-replaced Nizeral

            Comments about DHS Zinc Shampoo Pyrithione Zinc 2%, 16 fl oz:

            I use this product almost daily. It helps control my dermititis without a prescription. I used to use Nizeral but it went off the shelves for along time and it took me a lot of trial and error before finding this product! Thank goodness I did! I works just a swell as the Nizeral and actually costs slightly less!

            The only area of improvement I can find is I do wish it would lather more but mostly I wish it smelled better and less medicinal. It isn't an unpleasant smell but it's not the kind of smell you want the world to associate your hair with. Fortunately a little conditioner after usually helps.

              Comments about DHS Zinc Shampoo Pyrithione Zinc 2%, 16 fl oz:

              It's definitely soothing for psoraisis scalp. It won't heal completely, but it really calms the itchiness down a lot. I like the thick and creamy texture, because it lathers very well and doesn't dry out my hair. My hair looks more healthy since I started using it.

                      My dermatologist recommended this as part of a two shampoo use on my scalp. I alternate between it and my T-gel. Together they both work just great.

                          Me - Blk/Hispanic. My cousin recommended DHS Zinc to me after I complained of itchy dry patches returning to my scalp. I'd had them before and then they were gone. At some point, I realized it has to be the water in my area as the last time I had them was the last time I lived where I am again. No matter the cause, this stuff is great as the itchy patches are gone. I tend to wash my hair every two to three days and my hair stays fresh.

                              Have been using DHS Zinc shampoo for about a month. I have scalp psoriasis,and this shampoo has decreased the flakes and itching significantly. I anticipate even more improvement with more use.

                                  After using DHS zinc shampoo regularly, scalp is smooth and soft, no more rough spots/patches. Personally, I have better results with DHS zinc shampoo than with tar shampoo.
