What is Nizoral Shampoo?

Nizoral Shampoo

Nizoral shampoo (Ketaconazole 2%) contains a broad-spectrum antifungal, which inhibits the growth of yeast and other fungal infections providing relief from dandruff. Ketaconazole is also known to have anti androgenic effects. Recent research indicates that long term use of Nizoral Shampoo may have some benefit the treatment of Androgenetic alopecia.

Groups of individuals have discovered that Nizoral (when used regularly) is a very useful alopecia treatment, once again it would appear that the role of a substance for the treatment of hair-loss is stumbled upon accidentally!

Nizoral contains a chemical called ketoconazole. It is known that when ketoconazole is ingested orally, it inhibits the binding of androgens to receptors in the body and this would include the binding of DHT to hair-follicle receptors.

This shampoo is beneficial in combination with Rogaine. You can use Nizoral 1-3 a week only with a doctor recommendation. However the use of oral ketoconazole is NOT recommended for many reasons, mainly because this method would present itself as a toxin and ultimately damage the liver. But topical ketoconazole (as contained in Nizoral shampoo) shows itself to have a "weak" anti-DHT binding affect in the scalp.

My name is Ronen Eliyahu and I am active as a poster on the various discussion boards as “forhair”. I first heard about FUE in 2002 and my research led to Dr. Cole who was one of the first to experience and develop this scarless technique. I had two FUE hair transplant procedures with Dr. John Cole, MD in Atlanta, GA USA and the results were great and above my expectations. I eventually became the online representative for this clinic.

I have posted my results in many forums and other hair transplantation resources and been active helping patients and answering questions and answers.
