Bro unless you're severely genetically prone to MPB or going on a highly-androgenic cycle, I'd say start with the topicals.

Changing - Dr.Lee's Regrowth Treatment Shampoo is only about $14 and lasts about 2.5 months or so. It is superior to standard Nizoral 2%.
Custom sells Ketoconazole powder (active ingredient in Nizoral) dirt cheap. You could add it to your favorite shampoo and save a bundle.

I think it's the two. I would just go to the shampoo section of your grocery store and check it out.Originally Posted by Changing

does anyone know how much ketoconazole powder is needed to make two percent... would i have to measure it out and do some math,,,,ts my guess... am i right?Originally Posted by BigVrunga
has anyone done this
05-31-2005, 07:30 AM
If I remember correctly, 1% is 1 gram per 32oz of shampoo. I think Custom's ketoconazole powder page said something like this when I bought some from them.Originally Posted by smeton_yea

mb27 - Are you in Canada? In the US, only the 1% is on store shelves. 2% requires a prescription. Both are OTC in Canada.

Oops... braino on my part. 1% would obviously be 10 grams per liter, assuming your shampoo's density is close to that of water.Originally Posted by steve777

I'm in the US. I'm not sure about the 1%. I'm up in MASS and I get it at shaws. Whatever %age it is, it seems to help shedding.Originally Posted by rrgg

Eh. I just bought some ProCede. I'll let you know how it works. My hair isn't exactly thin but in the right light you can see my scalp in a couple of thin areas... My hair isn't exactly thick either...
06-07-2005, 09:57 AM
Crap. I don't have 2-3 days where I can go without washing or styling my hair right now. And, I've been doing some research and found that you need to apply the stuff within 24 hours of receiving it.. I had to cancel my order. I'll reorder again soon. It does sound interesting. It's got to do with scalp-peeling. I believe it works...

i have noticed thinning on the top of my scalp, but no receding. i am not doing steroids, nor have i ever used them. i plan on taking the regrowth treatment shampoo EOD along w/ 1mg (this correct?) finasteride ED. anyone use the liquid finasteride, and if so what is a good reliable site? also, how many squirts would equal 1mg?

<<BigVrunga slaps his head>>
This stuff is total BS. Read their claims:
All this stuff is, is a cosmetic treatment. It only makes hair look thicker, IT DOES NOT REGROW HAIR.PróCede™ revolutionary formula creates the appearance of a healthier, thicker and fuller hair shaft after only one application.
The exclusive, one-of-a-kind formula increases the diameter of thinning hair.
This intense cleansing action and stimulation reduces toxins harmful to the maintenance of healthy hair.
PróCede™ begins working immediately and the results can become evident in as little as 48 hours - a fuller, stronger, thicker looking head of hair after just one application!
With a worldwide patent pending, PróCede™ revolutionary formula is drug-free .
That means no potentially dangerous drug interactions
It may help thinning hair look thicker, but so will a good conditioner. This stuff really isnt anything more than a volumizer, and an expensive on at that! $200 for a 3 month supply? You could buy all your hair care products from minoxidil.com, save $100, and actually have more hair on your head. You could buy all your hair care products from a board sponsor, save $150 and have more hair on your head!!!

id still like to hear a testimonial from someone who used it...on this board,after all it is risk free.
I have a good head of hair, but may be predisposed, would an application twice daily of spiro, spaced over three days , prevent dht buildup?
I currently use nizoral 2 %

how has nizoral worked for you, and what have you used it for (recession, thinning?)?Originally Posted by smeton_yea
06-09-2005, 04:04 PM
i was wondering, are their any hair products that are detrimental to your hair. for instance, i use wax to syle my hair, and was wondering if its bad. thanks.
06-09-2005, 04:05 PM
I use Nizoral 2% every day as an insurance policy. So far, nothing has touched my hairline, which implies to me that I'm just not gonna get androgenic alopecia, period. This probably means that the Nizoral is a complete waste, but buying the powder is cheap, so I'm not taking any chances.Originally Posted by rfbulletdude

I have noticed thicker appearance. Ive used it too stop any recession.Originally Posted by rfbulletdude

p.s. i hear spiro smells nasty

Hey guys, I wonder if any of you have used the shampoo Nioxin? I used it at a friends house a few years ago, really liked it and bought some to use everyday. I am not thinning just trying to keep my hair even though I am nopt prone to MPB that I know of. It says it is used to remove DHT from the scalp, but not much more is said about it, and I read all these posts on here not seeing it mentioned either. It is sold OTC fyi. I wonder if it is the same concept just not as strong as say ther other typical shampoos mentioned on here, or if it is crap or what. I am about to run a test eq cycle and just want to keep what I have until the cycle is over. Thanks guys, all feedback is appreciated.

**** like that worries me!
This is what i got so far
Nizoral Shampoo %2
Azelaic Acid 5%
i think i'm goign to add the finesteride with my PH cycle! SD/Max LMG!
Guys where do you get Retin A???
06-12-2005, 09:23 PM
Changing I would think you would be fine w/o the finasteride on a short cycle of SD/Max. The topical stack you listed should be more than enough...if you want to be extra careful start it a month before the cycle.
BTW, only use the minoxidil if you need to regrow hair. Becuase once you start using, you are supposed to keep using it. Minoxidil is a permanent treatment for MPB.
Azelaic is available at minoxidil.com.

I've been using AA/minox 5% 2 times/day for almost 3 weeks now and I'm getting that shedding at first with the minox. It's not bad, but it's noticeable when I apply the minox ED. How much longer do you guys think it will be until I stop this shedding and regrowing? I know everybody's different, but anybody got an estimate from what you know/experienced??

TEMPORARY SHEDDING ASSOCIATED WITH MINOXIDIL BASED PRODUCTS
A small percentage of patients, male and female, experience slightly increased shedding of hair when they start using any topical minoxidil products. This shedding is normally a one time occurrence, and affects only the hair shafts which are in the telogen phase. Telogen phase hair shafts are those that have finished the growth cycle, are ready to fall out, and usually represent about 10% of the total hair shafts on the scalp at any given period of time. Although shedding associated with hair regrowth drugs is understandably frustrating, the shedding is actually a good indication that the patient's therapy is working like it is supposed to work. Ultimately all telogen hair shafts which have been shed will be replaced with new hair shafts which are thicker, remain on the scalp longer, and are more vibrant in texture. One is reminded of the slogan used when muscle tissue is expanded through strenuous exercise: 'No pain. No gain.' Few therapies associated with body enhancement are instant, and it takes almost as long to regrow hair as it did to lose it.
The hair replacement period requires that the telogen (resting) phase be completed, which normally takes approximately 100 days, and may take longer as our bodies age.
