By using a good hair loss shampoo is a great place to start when dealing with thinning hair and hair loss. Most shampoos that are available at your local supermarket, chemist and hairdressing salon are ineffective against hair loss. In fact, most shampoos on the market contain harmful chemicals such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (known as SLS). However, there certainly are shampoos out there that can help against hair loss. An important ingredient to look for is that with the ingredient ketoconazole.
What is Ketoconazole?
