Question: Hello, I've been trying the demodex shampoo and conditioner for the past 30 days, using it about every other day. I had a suspicion of demodex but not a diagnosis. How long does it usually take to know if this is addressing the problem? (Which for me is hair loss and itchiness). And, might there be a difference between hair loss while wet vs dry? Oddly, it seems like some days my hair falls out less than usual during the day, but it still sheds as much as ever in the shower. Thanks for your thoughts.


OVANTE: Thank you for your question. If you experience excessive hair loss, i would suggest to seek the advice of your family physician, it is best to determine for sure if it is the demodex mites what causes the itchiness and loss of hair.
You did not mentions anything about our shampoo and conditioner if and how it helps or not to stop the hair loss and itchiness. If it does help then you should continue using it. Normally we suggest to start with one application a day for few days gradually decreasing the application to every other day, every two days etc.
You could also boost the efficacy by adding more products to the scalp regimen.
There are two scalp lotions that we have besides shampoo and conditioner. These products don't need rinsing (Leave In) and must be applied on to your scalp after shampoo and conditioner.


Question: my mother has had itchy scalp for over a year. i found your Ovante Folliculit Scalp line (shampoo, conditioner and scalp lotion), purchased it and received it a few days ago. I wash her hair with the shampoo, apply conditioner then apply the scalp lotion while her hair is still wet. we've been doing this daily for 3 days. this regime relieves her itchy scalp for 3-4 hrs but it gets itchy again. she loves the feeling of the scalp lotion. it soothes her itch and makes her head feel good! if i can get her to stop scratching her head, your product might finally heal her. can the scalp lotion be applied more than once a day? if yes, how many times can i apply it in a day?

OVANTE: Yes, you can apply Scalp Lotion 2 - 3 times day for first 5 - 7 days. After that, you can start gradually decreasing the application to twice-once day, every other day etc. It will help tremendously if your mom will stop scratching her head because scratching is irritating. Please let us know should you have other questions and thank you for purchasing Ovante products.
