The hair loss prevention and in some cases hair growth effects of Nizoral (Ketoconazole) Shampoo are fairly well known in hair loss treatment circles. There have been several studies over the years verifying these effects. I’ll go as far to say that ANYONE with a hair loss issue should be using or alternating Nizoral and/or Piroctone Olamine based shampoos at least 2-3 times a week.
Another Japanese study detailed the seemingly astounding hair growth effects of using a ketoconazole foam applied after shampooing (with any shampoo) and rising. Unfortunately ketoconazole foam is not readily readily available in many places. A clearly viable alternative would be to apply Nizoral 2 % cream periodically to the hairline and other strategic places 2-3 times a week and leave on for several hours. This would be a potent adjunct to Nizoral Shampoo, staying on much longer than the shampoo, which is rinsed out after only 5 minutes or less. Nizoral cream is invisible after application and presents no cosmetic issue with its use, making it practical to use anytime. You can contact us for available sources of 2% Nizoral cream.
