So I was looking at all the good reviews about the shampoo on amazon when some woman said she kept getting dizzy after using the shampoo. She did some research and found that the chemical QUATERNIUM-15 was in it and it can cause cancer and organ damage perhaps?

I have also heard this can cause liver damage? If thats the case then I will not use this because my hair is not as important as my liver.

So im wondering if the 1% version of the Nizoral shampoo has side effects that are hidden and dangerous? Not to mention the main ingredient kitoral or whatever has been said to cause heart issues if taken orally. So im wondering what about the shampoo.

I just washed with the 1% tonight and I feel a tad dizzy. Im wondering if anyone has been taking this for a while without any negative side effects. Thanks

Logically, anything is possible. What is gold for some, are poison for others. We are all individual organisms with certain ticks, strengths and weaknesses towards a wide array of substances in this world of ours.

Now my opinion... Never heard of these problems, ever. I think it's in your head and your doing it to yourself. Just use the shampoo and forget about it. If something still happens while your not obsessing over it, THEN you have a problem, and stop using it. Also, the absorption of keto in your bloodstream would be so negligible from a topical that it's almost not worth mentioning. Unless you start rubbing Niz cream mixed with DMSO, again I would not worry about.

My advice, anyway.

I only leave the Nizoral shampoo in for say 30-45 seconds then I rinse. My hair looks good from it I must say I plan to use it once every 5-7 days and leave it in for 1 minute max. I have heard good things about this for maintaing your hair. But the liver damage really scares me because this stuff seems to be toxic.

I also read a few accounts where Nizoral shampoo lowered peoples libido. Any users here have that to report? Thanks and sorry for so many questions.
