No.: Lots of internet nonsense about this. Ketoconazole shampoos kill yeast organisms in the scalp, which reduces seborrhea ("dandruff"), but has no effect on hair growth.

The amount is based upon the drug, storage conditions, etc. It isn't precise. For this drug, at worst, it's a little less effective. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
