This might be a fairly prudish question (more hygienic implications than medical) but I will ask it anyway. How often do you recommend washing hair (for people with copious hair loss) with Nizoral.
secondly, I have been on 1mg generic finasteride for the past 6 months (although I started experiencing hair loss 7 years back, but did not pay heed to the thinning hair until recently). Do you think there will be any effect of the drug?
I would think there should be usage instructions on the Nizoral bottle, and how often it is used depends on the strength of the shampoo. I’ve read that 1% can be used daily and 2% should be used twice a week, but you should double check what strength you’re using and look for instructions on the packaging just in case I’m mistaken. Nizoral contains ketoconazole, which some people believe has some hair growth abilities; I don’t believe that to be the case. I don’t recommend any particular shampoo for general hygiene, but Nizoral could work well if you’re experiencing dandruff.
I don’t know enough about your hair loss to be able to assume if you’ll have any effect from Propecia. I cannot say if it will work for you because I really do not know what you are treating. Get a good examination. Document what you are starting with and follow up with your doctor in one year to see if there was some benefit. Lets be scientific!
