While Nizoral 2% shampoo is more effective at inhibiting DHT production and its binding to hair follicles, Nizoral regular strength offers a smoother, gentler approach to treating hair loss while minimizing scalp irritating effects from other topical treatments such as Rogaine 5% liquid.
This product includes 1% of the active ingredient ketoconazole. To view the clinical abstract proving the effectiveness of ketoconazole in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia, view "Ketoconazole as a hair loss treatment". Alternatively, you can obtain a prescription from your medical practitioner for the more concentrated 2%.
Developing Realistic Expectations:
Men and women sometimes suffer from hair loss for different reasons. Thus, diagnosing its cause is necessary to facilitate and promote proper treatment.
Don't expect immediate results. It's recommended to use Nizoral in conjunction with other proven treatments for at least 6 to 12 months before determining its effectiveness. Documenting your progress with bi-monthly photos can help you determine whether or not Nizoral has been successful in helping you maintain existing hair.
