Is it true that dandruff can cause hair loss?
There is speculation by hair restoration physicians that scalp inflamation can aggravate and inhibit healthy hair growth and thus contribute to hair loss and thinning. Some physicians recommend using Nizoral shampoo two or three times a week to minimize any scalp inflamation. Of course, male pattern baldness is primarily determined by genetics. That is why for most balding men we loose hair on top and still keep our hair on the sides regardless of having dandruff, scalp inflamation or what ever shampoo we use. But reducing scalp inflamation may help reduce the severity of our hair loss or thinning.
