Hair shedding and hair thinning have been reported to be affected by dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis. The present study was conducted in 150 men presenting with telogen effluvium related to androgenic alopecia associated with dandruff. They were randomly allocated to three groups receiving each one of the three shampoos in the market containing either 1% ketoconazole (KTZ), 1% piroctone olamine (PTO) or 1% zinc pyrithione (ZPT). Shampoos had to be used 2-3 times a week for 6 months. Hair…

EEMCO Guidance for the Assessment of Hair Shedding and Alopecia

Clinical evaluations benefit from a few additional specific techniques that enhance the perception of hair (re-) growth, shedding and alopecia, especially when the hair loss is accompanied by scarring.

Effects of a new mild shampoo for preventing hair loss in Asian by a simple hand‐held phototrichogram technique

It was found that the test shampoo could prevent hair loss and visual assessment using clinical digital images showed that the number of total hairs appeared to increase although there was no statistical significance.

A Comparison of Clinical Efficacy between a Basic Shampoo with Herbal Extracts Containing Climbazole and Its Similar Sample Containing Piroctone Olamine in the Treatment of Dandruff and Seborrheic Dermatitis

Both shampoos containing climbsazole or piroctone olamine beside herbal extracts are effective in the reduction of dandruff and relief of other seborrheic dermatitis symptoms but climbazole seems to be more effective than piroctorine in the treatment of d andruff.

Hair care and anti-dandruff.

Hair-dandruf f relationship may conversely explain the absence of dandruff on bold pates, and applies equally to hairless or shaved sites and to regions that sport only vellus hairs.

Effect of residence time on the efficacy of antidandruff shampoos.

The benefit of a residence time in treating dandruff is documented and the level of improvement in efficacy may vary according to the nature of the shampoo.

Efficacy and Tolerability of a Shampoo Containing Broad-Spectrum Cannabidiol in the Treatment of Scalp Inflammation in Patients with Mild to Moderate Scalp Psoriasis or Seborrheic Dermatitis

Replacing current shampooing practices with a broad-spectrum cannabidiol-containing shampoo significantly reduces both severity and symptoms of scalp inflammation within 2 weeks, with excellent tolerability and treatment satisfaction in subjects with mild to moderate scalp psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis.

An anti‐hair loss treatment in the management of mild androgenetic alopecia: Results from a large, international observational study

Hair loss improvement and hair quality with AC5 once daily was assessed in 527 subjects with mild AGA in an open‐label, observational, international real‐life study and AC5 was well tolerated and highly appreciated.

Topical ketoconazole for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia: A systematic review

Topical ketoconazole is a promising adjunctive or alternative therapy in the treatment of AGA and demonstrated clinical improvement of AGA based on photographic assessment and subjective evaluation.

Revisiting dandruff

Dandruff is a common scalp disorder affecting almost half of the postpubertal population of any ethnicity and both genders. It may, however, represent a stubborn esthetical disturbance often source

Improvement in the inflammatory aspect of androgenetic alopecia. A pilot study with an antimicrobial lotion

This study conducted in 20 men who used a lotion containing the antimicrobials, piroctone olamine and triclosan, regularly for 18 months suggested signs of hair regrowth with moderate increase in density of transitional hairs.

Ketoconazole Shampoo: Effect of Long-Term Use in Androgenic Alopecia

Comparative data suggest that there may be a significant action of KCZ upon the course of androgenic alopecia and that Malassezia spp.

Prolonged effects of antidandruff shampoos ‐ time to recurrence of Malassezia ovalis colonization of skin

Data show the increased duration of yeast reduction for the ketoconazole shampoo over the two other formulations, which is explained by the combination of its antifungal and pharmacokinetic properties.

Androgen responsive genes as they affect hair growth.

Results from this study indicate caspase 3 to be of primary importance in normal hair homeostasis and that DHT may be signaling greater expression of caspases, inducing apoptosis in androgenetic alopecia.

The response of seborrhoeic dermatitis to ketoconazole

It is concluded that Pityrosporum yeast infection is the immediate cause of seborrhoeic dermatitis and that dandruff is its mildest manifestation.

Androgenetic alopecia and microinflammation

The aim of this review is to determine the location and chronology of the microinflammation process within the complex pathophysiology of the human pilosebaceous unit in order to improve the possible approaches for the reduction or prevention of the development of AGA.

Periodicity in the growth and shedding of hair

Overall annual periodicity was demonstrated, manifested by a maximal proportion of telogen hairs at the end of summer and the beginning of autumn in men with or without alopecia.

Antifungal therapy is effective in the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis and, because it reduces the number of Malassezia, the time to recurrence is increased compared with treatment with corticosteroids.

Dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis: causes and management

Dandruff will be discussed alongside the scalp scaling associated with seborrhoeic dermatitis, which affects otherwise healthy people as well as those with other diseases.

Hair diameter diversity: a clinical sign reflecting the follicle miniaturization.

Diversity in hair diameter was the main and most accurate clinical parameter linked to follicle miniaturization and constitutes a new tool of substantial help for the diagnosis and management of androgenic alopecia.
