In brief: Many options
Sooner or later your scalp will get used to the tar shampoo - or you will get tired of smelling like you got dipped in creosote - so get several therapeutic shampoos and rotate them. Other good active ingredients are zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, and salicylic acid.

Works well for all.
I have my patients rotate with a zinc pyrithione shampoo for duel effect.
