I started using Nizoral 2% once a week about 3 weeks ago. I shed for a few days after each time I use it. The shedding isnt really bad but I usually dont shed much at all. Has this happened to anyone else when using Nizoral 2%? I leave it on for about 5-7 minutes in the shower.

You shouldnt leave it on for that long from what i have read on the net. Usually people leave it on between half a minute to two minutes tops. It may cause irritation to the scalp. I cant say that i notice more shedding while using it because lately i have been shedding so much anyway.

NIZORAL MAKES HAIR GROW THICKER. The shedding has stopped now, im shedding 20-30 hairs a day max. I do not shampoo, I only rinse with water in the shower and I use Nizoral 2% once every four days. Anybody who is interested in making their follicles grow thicker may want to read this article. It was proven that Nizoral makes the hair follicles grow thicker. This article is pretty encouraging.

Anonymous confidently states - "It was proven that Nizoral makes the hair follicles grow thicker." Please read the article that Anonymous links to. The first paragraph says, "March 04, 2001 - American Academy of Dermatology Meeting - Washington DC - Scientists working for McNeil, makers of Nizoral anti-dandruff shampoo, presented the findings of a study done on 1% Nizoral shampoo which has good news for hair loss sufferers."

You will notice that the study was done by scientists who are working for the company that makes Nizoral. When a research project is sponsored by a company and the scientists are paid by this company, one might tend to be skeptical, or am I being too mean-spirited? Another thing - most statisticians would not take a study with 44 subjects in the experimental group and 43 in the control group too seriously.

After saying all this, though, I still think Nizoral is an excellent product.

I have never used Nizoral but it sounds interesting. would anyone recommend it? I have shedding around the crown area and i am currently doing the scalp exercises. I am going to start using minoxidil again because my hair keeps thinning and doesn't seem to be getting better

Ok I just read up a lot of articles on Nizoral. It looks like its some magical potion that cures all scalp conditions and could even help battle MPB. Any comments?

Is it best to use 1% or 2% and do I have to see a doctor before getting 2%?

It's not a magical potion, but Ive been using Nizoral 2% once every 4 days. On the off days i do not shampoo, I just rinse my hair with water. My hair is looking healthier and healthier, and darker. I am also faithfully doing the SE's of course. You can get Nizoral 2% at any online pharmacy. I would recommend using 2% because I've read some articles that have said if someone was to see results(thicker hair, etc.) using Nizoral, it would be with 2% because it is stronger. Not that you are guaranteed to grow better hair with Nizoral, because like Tom said, the studies werent exactly the most trustworthy or 4 star type studies, but none the less, I have heard of success stories with the use of Nizoral 2%. Some marginal, some minimal, but I would say its worth a try.

Thanks for that. I used minoxidil for a while and had good results but suffered a lot of itching and a lot of dandruff (a lot). Does anyone know about Xandrox15? Is this a better product to use because it has more minoxidil and no propylene glycol?

I'm wondering whether switching to this product will eliminate the previous side effects.

Im using Nizoral 2% and Tricomin follicle therapy spray right now, and am seeing postive results. Tricomin does not have any drugs in it. Minoxidil is dose dependent and in time u will keep having to use more and more until it doesnt work anymore. Stick with natural stuff like Tricomin or stuff comparable to it and the SE's if u can. Propecia and Minoxidil do not cure MPB, they are just a quick fix to the lucky ones, and the fix will only last so long.

"Propecia and Minoxidil do not cure MPB, they are just a quick fix to the lucky ones, and the fix will only last so long".

Can you give a link to any research proving that?
You seem like you have read a lot or have personal experience. Have this drugs stop working for you?

You can get xandrox which is minoxidil 15%. I've never heard of Tricomin and as far as i have experienced minoxidil works so i'm gonna try Xandrox 15%
