DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF HAIR GEL FOR THE TREATMENT OF DANDRUFF
Dandruff is a very serious problem today; various treatments are available in the market but show temporary effect. An attempt has been made to formulate an antidandruff hair gel of carbopol 940 containing ketoconazole (Antidandruff drug) and Aloe vera (Natural antifungal agent), which are effective for number of hours as compared to other marketed hair oils. Hair gel increases the retaining time of drug and improve the effectiveness of antifungal agents. Aloe vera keep your hair moisturized, prevent from damage and drying. Aloe vera is used in formulation to reduce the dose of ketoconazole and also reduces the adverse and side effect of same.
