Default Just used Nizoral for the first time.

I don't think it's the 2%

but now my hair is dry, it feels like I'm wearing one of Beyonce's huge wigs. My hair is huge and really thick! If I had my full result from the HT along with this Nizoral effect then my hair would be the same as I was when I was 17. Amazing.

Is this common?

Hi TL,

The effects of nizoral can certainly help refresh the bounce no doubt, giving the hair a fuller body. Your fine hair type obviously suits the shampoo especially after the deep clean it gives.


BE CAREFUL - DO NOT OVERUSE nizoral shampoo as its common to get a little too familiar with it and it WILL make your hair shed!!!

You have been warned amigo.

Personally 1 x a week max!

Best

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated. I'll definitely heed it! Shame I can't use this every day ... really loving the effect. Once a week is what it will be

From what I've read the 2% stuff is better ... I just bought the wrong one though I have read it does help also. Definitely improved the appearance yesterday anyway!

Hey guys, im in the same case i just used nizoral for my first time today. It really feels good on my hair.

but since i know i cant use it everyday, i would like to know how you think of using Progaine (the shampoo from rogaine that volumizes the hair) the other days that im not use nizoral, the only concern that i have its that maybe the products would be contraindicated or something

in the other hand, i would like to know how you apply nizoral, do you apply twice in the shower as directed? or its ok to apply just one time and let it soak for 5 minutes?

thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english

WHERE IS THE 2% NIZORAL ONLINE? I ORDERED FROM A CANADIAN SUPPLIER, BUT IT'S GOING TO TAKE FOREVER AND I DIDN'T GET EMAIL CONFIRMATION. WHERE IS A RELIABLE CANADIAN SUPPLIER THAT SHIPS TO USA?

Also, where can I even find 1% for a decent price? I was gonna buy that to use in the interim, but i can't even find that anywhere except online...and for $20.

Sorry for the CAPS, but it appears it's gotten harder now. And I threw away my Nizoral just a few weeks ago....stupid.

You're only supposed to use once a week? I forgot that.

jackisback1,

In the States, 2% requires a prescription. The 1% formula has continued to be MIA in the shops for about 2 years now I think. It was supposed to be readily available by now.

I bought my last two bottles off Ebay. I use it twice weekly and it lasts a long time. If you buy from Ebay, be sure that the bottle you are getting is not expired.

Good luck!
