How to use the shampoo?
When using MG217 Medicated Coal Tar Shampoo, it is best to shake well before using to ensure that none of the ingredients have settled in the bottle. This also ensures that you receive the appropriate amount of each ingredient to best treat your psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, or dandruff. Wet your hair thoroughly then apply a liberal amount of shampoo to your hands and massage into scalp and through your hair. This helps break up the dead skin cells and ensure the product meets your scalp the way it should. Leave the lather in your hair for several minutes while you complete other shower activities. Be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly. To receive the best possible results it is suggested to use this shampoo twice a week or to follow your physician or dermatologist recommends.
