After using it pretty much every which way possible for over 20yrs my personal opinion is the stuff junk waste of time and money does nothing to prevent or slow hair loss and its not even good at what its actually marketed for  Dandruff.

I use it 2-3x a week... it's the first thing I lather in when I hop in the shower and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Honestly I haven't really noticed any difference but the science/placebo effect makes me feel slightly better about using it

The studies for hair loss done on nizoral used the 2% anywhere from 2-4 times a week. The one study that used 1% had participants use it 2-3 times per week.

 

knowing what I know now, and how harsh it can be (especially the 2%) I’d use it max 2x a week. The 1% isn’t as drying as the 2% so you might be able to get away with using it more often but I’d still be cautious.

 

nizoral even put a claim on their site that said the medicine still remains at therapeutic levels in the scalp for 3 days following use.

When I was younger my head and hair was so oily that my head was oily and greasy just a few hours after washing it. I had to wash my hair twice per day. I began using Nizoral shampoo every day and used it as my only shampoo for a couple of years. It did help with the oilyness and probably had a minor effect on my hairloss too.

Have used it but really don't think it does much on it's own to be honest. As an adjunct treatment alongside finasteride, it may provide a little extra in terms of inhibiting DHT however even then, not convinced it does enough to warrant being a serious treatment in the fight against hairloss.

So here is my observation :

I have been using Propecia and Minoxidil for over 10 years and it did what it did.

For last 4 months I started using Nizoral or a 2% Ketacanzole + Salicylic Acid shampoo. I can swear to god that my density is improving, and also mini-hair

are sprouting along the recessed temporal regions. Some family members and my hair stylist have commented on how much better my hair has become.

I have been on this forum for 20 years and consider myself quite knowledgeable on transplants, meds, etc, and I now wish I had started this shampoo yers

ago.

There is no doubt about the benefits in my mind. Perhaps next to Propecia its the best thing for hair. Only downside is the drying of the scalp and I have started

using coconut oil for that, and that helps.

Currently having this after 1 month of dermarolling and switching to topical fin and minox combo. New hairs sprouting all over, hair feels thicker, looks better.
