I have been using it one week ago every evening, its much better than Rogaine to me, dries faster and itches less. I love it. I just use it evening while in the morning i apply Rogaine foam as foam gives you a better cosmetic appearance. So far, Lipogaine is the best Minoxidil plus azelaic acid formula I ever tried, better than Perfect image solutions and Dr. Lee Xandrox. I hope it would stay in the market forever as they only use 5% strength.

Does the azeliac acid make the hair strands look thinner though? I read that in the other thread here.

Dont believe everything your read Mickey. Look at how many companies produce Minoxidil with Azelaic Acid. Its a very helpful agent in the formula, I asked top clinics and manufacturers like Dr. Lee and Belgravia centre about it and they have given me a lot of evidences that it really works that I personally experienced great results with it. If you think it would make your hair strand look thinner then use it only in the evening and in the morning use Rogaine Foam. Easy solution.

I see, I'll most likely be purchasing the Lipogaine then. It has Saw Palmetto in it which some research suggests blocks DHT, although it isn't so sure about how effective it is when applied topically. I do take Saw Palmetto in tablet form anyway. Research suggests Azeliac acid blocks DHT also which would be very cool indeed. I also use Revita shampoo and conditioner which states it contains many ingredients that prevent other causes of hairloss but who knows how well it works.

Revita shampoo is great but it does not foam at all which leaves my hair very very greasy. Try to use Regenepure DR as it acts better. If you ask me what Im personally using, Its Alpecin shampoo Double Effect as it has caffeine plus salicylic acid for my dandruff and Regenepure DR twice a week instead of Nizoral shampoo. I think its a big mistake to use Ketaconazole daily, its recommended at all medically. Even Nizoral company warns against it.

I find Revita foams up fine but I have to add a bit more water to it. I would like to have to use a bit less than I do though, simply because it is very expensive. I bought the 925ml bottle which worked out more economical.

I shampoo my hair once every two days to let the natural oils thrive a bit lol.

I purchased some Lipogaine, should be here within 2 weeks. Does it irritate less than Rogaine does?

I am using it in conjunction with Rogaine. I actually like it better as it doesn't feel as stiff afterwards. Also has better ingredients(Azaliac acid, Saw Palmetto, various acids etc) and has PG(propylene glycol) which is a good carrying agent(the foam version of Rogaine does not contain this).
