Many people suffer from dandruff problem. The dandruff occurs generally on the hair covered skin, specially the scalp skin. It is known to be controlled by antifungal agents. The present study was carried out to asses the effect of three minutes contact period on the efficacy of antidandruff shampoos. 1% Ketoconazole, 1% Piroctone olamine and 1% Zinc pyrithione were individually formulated in a shampoo base and were used for the study. Three groups of ten patients each with severe dandruff were taken such that each group was treated with only one of the antidandruff agent. Scoring of the dandruff was done on a 0 to 10 scale for each of the three regions of scalp at first and fourteenth day respectively. All the three antidandruff shampoo treated groups improved significantly with a contact period of three minutes rather than no contact period.
