Hi all,

I just started using Rogaine one month ago so I haven't seen any results yet. When I asked him about which shampoo to use, my hair transplant physician recommended I try Nioxin. I seem to fit their Nioxin 2 system best.

My question is, can you use Nioxin and Rogaine together?

Does anyone have an opinion about which one is better or if they are equal?

Thanks,
Mark

Hello Mark, D

I have been using both together for about 10 years. Over that time I have some personal opinions about Nioxin. I love it as a shampoo, it cleans great and my wife loves the minty smell. I know that it says that it cleans away DHT - and it may if the DHT is at the surface, but it is not going to get DHT in the root or bulb of the hair strand. I think that it helps keep the hair shaft healthy - more so that most shampoos, and it will clean the scalp very well, but it is not going to give the effects of rogaine and/or propecia. But I love the shampoo and will continue to use it.

Thanks,
John

Hello John,

I agree, I like the shampoo and the conditioner feels quite good as well.

Do you use or have you tried the Nioxin Scalp Treatment? I am curious if you prefer Rogaine over the Nioxin scalp treatment or if you use both together.

On a side note, have you tried the Nioxin vitamins?

Thanks for the feedback,
Mark
