Nope, it’s not itchy because of that. You may need to get used to it (my case), or you don’t tolerate it well. I suggest you keep going and see if the itch goes away after a while and then reevaluate. You could also try a minoxidil with a lower alcohol formula.
Nizoral recommends using their shampoo twice a week to fight dandruff. If you choose to try this to help stop hair loss, you may want to use it more often than that simply because this is the over the counter strength version. Talk to your doctor to get the prescription-strength 2% kind.

Available as a topical treatment by prescription, Ketoconazole is currently used as an antifungal agent in the treatment of fungal infections. It also has anti-androgenic effects and can cause a reduction in the production of testosterone and other androgens by the adrenal gland and by the male and female reproductive organs (in women, the ovaries). Because of this action, it can be used to help treat hair loss. Nizoral shampoo contains 2 percent Ketoconazole and is prescribed not only for the treatment of scalp conditions, but also in combination with other treatments for androgenetic alopecia. A 1 percent version is now available over-the-counter, but it may not be as effective as the 2 percent prescription strength. There are no significant side effects.

Using too much hairspray or gel can cause hair loss. No, but it may make people think you’re a time-traveler from the ‘80s. This was just one of several myths debunked in an entertaining 2011 report by US News.
Genetic hair loss, on the other hand, is largely permanent, as is any type of hair loss triggered by scarring on the scalp, says Emmanuel. Scarring can be caused by chemical hair styling services or too-tight pony tails, a problem Emmanuel sees with many African American women who are hair-loss sufferers. She adds that scarring can also be triggered by some autoimmune disorders.
Licorice root has a number of beneficial qualities when it comes to naturally treating hair loss. It works to alleviate a dry, irritated, or scabbed skull.

Dear All, I had similar problems with hair loss and some simple things have helped control it to a large extent. Eat a large tablespoon of roasted Flaxseeds everyday. Drink 5-6 cups of green tea. Add some soya to your daily diet. Eat one whole walnut and 4-5 almonds every morning. Eat a couple of figs and dates every day if possible. Do de stressing activities like yoga and pranayam each day. Do all of this and see wonderful results not only on your hair, but on skin and general health too! I promise you this small effort on your part will bring you very happy results.

Brushing your hair every morning about 30 mins and evening about the same duration of time with rounded tip hair-brush, will do recondition your scalp with better blood circulations.
