Description

Alphosyl 2 In 1 Shampoo is used to treat scaly, itchy skin conditions affecting the scalp, such as psoriasis, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis or dandruff.

Alphosyl 2 in 1 shampoo contains coal tar extract as the active ingredient. Coal tar has mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects, and relieves itching.

The shampoo should be massaged into wet hair and the scalp for several minutes until a rich lather is produced. Rinse thoroughly then repeat the procedure.

For dandruff, you should use the shampoo once or twice a week as necessary, or as directed by your doctor.

For psoriasis, seborrheoic dermatitis, or scaling and itching such as associated with eczema, use the shampoo every two to three days, or as directed by your doctor.

Directions

Use Alphosyl 2 in 1 Shampoo once or twice a week for four weeks.

  • Wet hair thoroughly.
  • Use enough shampoo so that the lather is sufficient to cover your scalp, hair and adjacent areas, if also affected.
  • Massage the scalp and adjacent areas, if needed, well using your fingertips.
  • Rinse your hair thoroughly.
  • Repeat steps 2 to 4.

Alphosyl 2 in 1 Shampoo should be in contact with your scalp for a total time of three to five minutes over the two applications.

If you forget to use Alphosyl 2 in 1 Shampoo, just apply the next day instead.
