NIZORAL®

African American Hair

Most African American women shampoo less frequently than the general population. One reason is that we spend lots of time and money styling our hair, and we want that style to last! Furthermore, we don't want to put our fragile hair through a daily shampoo regimen.

African Americans have long sought an effective solution to this beauty dilemma-one that also respects all the hard work that goes into having great-looking hair, like relaxing, color, braiding, extensions, and styling with products like gels and pomades.

NIZORAL® A-D Anti-Dandruff Shampoo addresses the needs of African American hair. NIZORAL® A-D provides the benefit of long-lasting relief from dandruff, including flaking, itching and dryness -its active ingredient adheres to the scalp's proteins, so it keeps working in-between washings.

Even though it's strong and effective, NIZORAL® A-D is also safe for relaxed, chemically and color-treated hair. This is particularly important for African American women, since so many of us have to consider the special needs of chemically and color-treated hair. It's also a silk-rich, luxury shampoo that will leave hair clean, healthy, and smelling great.

We take a lot of pride in beautiful hair-and don't want the hard work done in the beauty salon ruined by an itching, flaking, scaling scalp!

NIZORAL® A-D is an effective dandruff solution for African American hair because:

  • It's long-lasting - we don't shampoo our hair daily-so it's especially important that we have a long-lasting dandruff solution. Because ketoconazole (NIZORAL® A-D's active ingredient) adheres to the scalp, it provides long-lasting relief from dandruff symptoms-an itchy, flaky, scaly scalp.
  • It's effective - The active ingredient in NIZORAL® A-D-ketoconazole- is 10 times more potent in controlling P. ovale than the active ingredient in other over-the-counter dandruff shampoos. It's a great way to protect the scalp between hair washings.
  • It's gentle - A majority of us chemically treat and/or color-treat our hair. So it's important to know that in a recent study over 90% of African American women with chemically treated and/or color treated hair agreed that NIZORAL® A-D was gentle.
