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:

    Had flakes aroud hair and beard. Dermetologist recommended this instead of a prescription product. Got rid of the flages and keeps scalp clean. I'm in CA so shampoo is every three days and it still works. This size is a bit large for travel so I also got one of the smaller sizes.

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

      I have colored my hair for 20+ years. My scalp was itching all the time. I found this product and it is really great. It's not as think as regular shampoo so don't be alarmed. However, it lathers just the same and my hair is shiny and soft after using this product. It made my scalp stop itching. I think the zinc in the product is what helps with the itching. I have white-blond hair. There is a warning on the bottle that it might change the color of your blond hair. However, I've had no issues whatsoever.

                  Great product for jock itch . Just lather up let it stay there until you are finished bathing then rinse off. Try to leave on in shower as long as you can then rinse well.

                    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.

                          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.
