Fellow balding brothers, there's hope for you yet. /r/tressless

"What do I do? Do I have options??" Yes, but you really only have 1 option....."Do 'The Big 3'".

1: Propecia

2: Rogaine

3: Nizoral shampoo.

Get generic Proscar (have your doctor write you an RX). Proscar is 5mg of Finasteride (propecia is 1mg of Finasteride) used to treat BHP. Get a $3 pill cutter from walmart and cut them into quarters. This means $9 for 120 days of propecia, whereas getting actual name brand propecia is around $70 or so a month. Tell your doctor that you can't afford name brand, and that Proscar is LITERALLY the exact same thing as Propecia, just a 5x stronger dose. Most people can be sympathetic towards wanting to save money. Just be upfront and honest with him. If you don't have a doctor, PLEASE DO NOT GET GENERICS ONLINE!! Pay for one doctor visit (or a dermatologist visit) and then get the RX for Proscar. You will STILL pay less overall for that than you will getting generics online. Source? I did generics for 4 years before I wised up. I think I paid around $30-$40 a month for generics. You'll save money in the long run, so long as it's not $400+ for one doctor visit.

Get generic rogaine from walmart. Start with 1 month of the liquid and see how it works. Only get 1 month to start because it MIGHT irritate your scalp (PPG is the delivery vehicle, and some people get really itchy where it's applied [I had a horrible itch]). If it doesn't bother you, then after a month get the 3 month supply (I say liquid because it has a slightly better rate of growth than the foam). If it bothers you (either because it's itchy or because it feels like it makes your hair too greasy), then get the 3 months supply of Rogaine foam.

Nizoral is hard to find these days, but what you want is a shampoo that has at least 1% KETOCONAZOLE as the active ingredient. Keto has been shown to have anti androgen properties. By itself it's not going to do much, but it helps in conjunction with the other things. It's usually back on Amazon for about $14. Another option for Keto shampoo is Regenepure DR. I haven't used it, so I can't attest to it, but many others have said it worked well.

I also use Bosley Revive for my normal shampoos. It SAYS it's suppose to help with thinning hair. I have my doubts, but I like the way it makes my hair feel. It's much more manageable and better looking when I use it. It's not super cheap, but buy the liter bottles and they'll last you for at least a couple months, if not closer to 3 or 4 months. You need to get 2 kinds, cleanser and scalp therapy. Buy them both, then just buy them individually as needed.

Propecia: Some people say that taking propecia makes them kinda tired for the first few hours after they take the pill. I think that's kinda bogus, but I always take mine right before bed...just in case.

Rogaine: Take a shower in the morning, towel dry your hair, then put the rogaine in and let it sit while you get dressed. After that, style your hair as usual. Put it in again before you go to bed (needs to be in 2x a day), but do it as the FIRST thing before your nightly ritual so that it sits on your head and can be absorbed and not run down the side of your head when you're sleeping.

Nizoral/Nioxin: You want your hair to be somewhat clean from normal oils so that Nizoral will suds up and hit your scalp. I use generic T-Gel from walmart for the first round of hair washing. Rinse, then apply Nizoral. After you do that, then start washing yourself off. Get all sudsy and clean, then rise your hair out (you do this to let the Nizoral sit and soak your scalp for a while. DON'T RINSE OFF YET!). Next you use the Nioxin cleanser. It doesn't have to sit, so just lather up and rinse out. Now for the Nioxin cleanser. It's basically a conditioner, so put it on and let it sit while you rinse off. You want it to sit on your head for about 2 minutes. After that, rinse off, get out of the shower, towel dry your hair, then put on your Rogaine.

Source: I've been doing this for about 6 or 7 years.

u/raisinflan · 11 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

I use the mens. The women's formula did nothing after 3 months. One month of the men's gave me an explosion of baby hairs and I stopped shedding like crazy. After 5 months I have enough hair to put it up without having awkward bald stops.

I think the main cause of the mustache is that I've been putting it in my hair immediately after I get out of the shower, rubbing it in my hair, and then doing my skin care/make-up. I wash my hands, but maybe I need to be completely hands off my face for an hour after putting it in.

In case you haven't been warned- it also causes dandruff like crazy. I've never had dandruff until I started using it. Nizoral is amazing, and I only have to use it twice a week.

I'd also recommend using Target's brand of Rogaine. It's half the price and works exactly the same.

I hope I didn't scare you off. My stache isn't as luscious as Freddie's. The hair didn't turn dark, it's just longer and there's more of it. It's obvious in some light and not too noticeable in other light.

u/madbotherfucker · 9 pointsr/howto

This shampoo really helped me. I used to have a bad dandruff problem, and I had to take a shower minimum every other day or my scalp itched uncontrollably. I noticed an almost immediate improvement with this shampoo.

u/yu94 · 7 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

This is the one I use. It’s pretty drying so I skip face wash when I use it. When I feel like I need it, at night I wash my face with water and put a layer of the shampoo on mainly my forehead and leave it for 15 minutes. Then I wash off and continue routine.

u/AutomaticRegret · 6 pointsr/UIUC

Get this product called Nizoral shampoo (linked below), it has ketoconazole in it (you can read up on it) which doctors prescribe similar stronger ketoconazole products to people with excess dandruff that cannot be controlled. Use it like every two or three days for about 6-8 weeks, you can use conditioner every day though. After that, I would recommend a natural shampoo and conditioner that contains a lot different oils such as argan oil.


Also really important, people who shampoo their hair everyday especially with products such as Head & Shoulders which contain ingredients such as sulfate (which is terrible for your scalp, companies just use these ingredients because they are cheap. They couldn't give a sht about what happens to your scalp.) are stripping all the natural oils which your hair/scalp needs at least a little bit of, drying your scalp excessively which also causes dandruff, and also making yourself more prone to baldness. Read up on the no shampoo method which is basically you use shampoo ever two or three days, but you can still use conditioner every day. I've linked a page below if you're interested.


Oh one more thing....
For the love of god, please stop using two in one shampoo and conditioners because it doesn't work! Think about it, shampoo is supposed to strip stuff out while conditioner is supposed to put nutrients back in. How the f
ck can one product do these two things at once. It's obviously just a way for the company to scam you into buying that product because you think you are getting the better deal. Just buy separate shampoos and conditioners, I've linked below the products that I'm currently using if you want some reference. You could buy that or other products that have similar ingredients.


You can ask me any questions if you have some.








If you follow what I've written here, I expect you to come back in a few weeks in order to thank me for giving away all my secrets and for changing your life for the better.

u/ibdx · 5 pointsr/motorcycles

Sounds like the helmet only made you aware of the dandruff. Get some nizoral

u/imabratinfluence · 5 pointsr/curlyhair

Hi! Don't feel bad about all those years of shampooing and not conditioning. I was raised female, and still made that mistake. I'm 29 and didn't start conditioning until April of this year. I thought I was too greasy for conditioner!

On to your questions!

  1. Nizoral is the bomb! I have scalp issues too-- my scalp gets super greasy, and I have eczema. Grease + sweat and dirt and debris = major issues with scalp eczema. If you want to pick it up at a store local to you, I find it's usually in the Beauty section. It's the only shampoo that's helped with my scalp issues, and the one sulfate in it is low on the list. Before I went mod CG, I loved the way my hair felt after washing with Nizoral, and hadn't had that kind of luck with a shampoo in a long time, despite trying all the usual dandruff shampoos (and some odd ones).

    If you want to totally ditch sulfates but still take care of your dandruff, you can experiment with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle, Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat, or Shea Moisture African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo. I'm pretty sure there are more CG options I'm forgetting, but those are the ones that I remember off the top of my head. I've been experimenting with the Giovanni TTTT, and I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It seems fine with my hair, but my scalp seems to have issues in general with every tea tree product I try. It's often paired with mint/mentholatum, which is a skin irritant.

  2. You can dry your hair with an old t-shirt (the softer it is, the more absorbent it seems, to me). You can scrunch your hair with the towel, and Curly Penny gives a pretty decent demo of this. You can also use a hair dryer, and the general consensus seems to be: use a finger diffuser (also called a bowl diffuser), use low speed/air, and low-medium heat and don't dry all the way with a blow dryer. You can also use a microfiber towel (the ones in the automotive section are cheaper, although they're smaller). Experiment to figure out which method works best not just for your hair, but for keeping your routine manageable.

    I get the best results with using a t-shirt to get my hair just dry enough not to drip, and then air-drying. But if I need my hair to be dry for some reason, I do break out the diffuser.

  3. A lot of people swear by using a wide-tooth comb, with their head upside down, in the shower, with their hair full of conditioner. The conditioner does help, by providing slip so tangles come out easily and gently instead of causing hair to break or rip when you detangle. A wide-tooth comb reduces the likelihood of breakage as well.

    A Denman brush is this. As near as I can tell, it just means the bristles are spaced further apart, again to help prevent breakage and further tangling when you detangle-- but bear in mind that I don't really understand the Denman brush thing, either. It just looks like a brush to me. A wide-tooth comb has the bristles or tines spaced further apart as opposed to a fine tooth comb. I like a comb that has the tines almost chopstick-width apart. You can also just comb your hair in the shower with your fingers and your conditioner-- I like using a comb better because it feels more effective, to me.

    The other reason we don't comb after showering is because it breaks up clumps-- you want clumps if you want strong curls and good definition. Otherwise it can look stringy. I recently read someone talking about curly haircuts saying "ends need friends"-- and so they do, for curls to look right.

    I think this stuff is hard, and a lot of us just don't get good info on hair or skincare. Good luck to you.
u/BadassUdotNET · 4 pointsr/NoFap

It also seems to slow down or stop hair loss. Some guys even claim regrowth.


Here is some more information for those curious.

The ones that experience regrowth are usually doing at least one thing to treat their hair loss (besides NoFap).

You really have just three options: Rogaine, Propecia, and ketoconazole (usually in a shampoo).

Rogaine works by speeding up the growth cycle, but it also adds more DHT receptors to the hair follicles (that is why you lose a lot of hair once you stop). It is also a heart medication, so it might mess with your blood pressure.

Propecia works, but it can mess with your hormones. The first day my friend took it, he got like instant man boobs (they got all swollen). He stopped immediately and, thankfully, they went back to normal. I read it can become permanent if you keep using it.

Ketoconazole works and doesn't have many, if any, drawbacks. It does the opposite of Rogaine and reduces the number of DHT receptors on the hair follicles over time. And since it is applied topically, it won't mess with your hormones like Propecia.

(Please don't waste your time reading more random articles on the internet for the balding cure. Trust me, this is everything you need to know.)

Some people advocate doing all three at once, but I think that is messing with your body chemistry too much. And I think you're being a little too vain / anxious about it if you do all three.

Personally, I would just buzz it short (think Jason Statham). If it looks good, you have nothing else to worry about.

(I really like this quote by him about working out.)

Plus, girls don't seem to care as long as you aren't trying to hide your balding.

But if you want to try it, here are the more popular brands when it comes to ketoconazole shampoos: Regenepure, Lipogaine, and Nizoral.

Besides all that, make sure you lower your stress, get plenty of sleep, and, of course, NoFap!

u/Anovan · 3 pointsr/HaircareScience

He should see a doctor, it sounds like seborrheic dermatitis to me. He can try nizoral shampoo with no other products following (like conditioner), let it sit on the scalp for a minute or two per use. Here’s a link to get it off amazon.

u/Aria77001 · 3 pointsr/PCOS

It's a fungal infection, the hair focilles become inflamed(yep, all thanks to hormones). You need something like nizoral(Ketoconazole shampoo).
It only works because of ketoconazole(it kills the fungus) so other dandruff shampoos will not work.
It should disappear fairly quickly if you use the shampoo regularly

u/Cpt_Burrito · 3 pointsr/pics

I had bad dandruff for a long time. Head and shoulders, T-Gel etc did nothing to help. I tried every fad strategy, including rinse-only. I saw a doc about it too but none of her recommendations did anything. I figured I was just doomed.

Then I tried out Nizoral and BOOM, literally 0 dandruff since I started using it a few times a month. It's straight up a life-changer.

u/aquajack6 · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

The only one I've tried is Selsun Blue, but a lot of people really love the Nizoral. It's hard for me to say which one would be best for you. Here's the amazon links: https://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-D-Anti-Dandruff-Shampoo-Oz/dp/B00AINMFAC?th=1


So I don't know if there's any truth to this, but I have this theory that hair adapts or gets used to the shampoo I use. I like switching up the active ingredients in the shampoo. Hopefully that will help you. There's a chance you might have dry scalp, doing an oil treatment with tea tree oil might help. I've used this cheap one at Walmart before You could try buying tea tree oil and diluting it in a carrier oil. Some people swear by diluting Apple Cider Vinegar, and putting it in a spray bottle and using it on the scalp.

u/HugeRichard11 · 3 pointsr/starterpacks

Could be one of the ingredients you don't respond well to it since they do add a bunch of other components to the formula. Anyways, best I can say is try Ketoconazole 2% which is prescription strength and requires you to go to your doctor. If you have insurance though they might cover the cost of the prescription for you, so it might actually save you money from having to buy shampoos yourself. It also comes in a lower strength over-the-counter in 1% where you can find it on Amazon it seems. Brand name Nizoral, but uses the ingredient Ketoconazole same as the prescription just lower strength.


u/HexokinaseIV · 3 pointsr/tressless


  1. 30x 1mg Fin: $13 @ Costco
  2. 1 Month Supply of Minoxidil: $6.80
  3. 7oz 1% Nizoral: $14.10
  4. 60 Day supply Biotin: $5.82

    Comes out to just under $40

    For finasteride, you can get it even cheaper by getting the 5mg tablet and splitting it into 4ths.

    Also buy a 12 month supply of minoxidil and it's even cheaper in the long run.

    For Niz, I have a prescription for the 2% and it's only $4 for a 1 month supply.

    You also really don't need the Biotin gummies. Maybe just take a multivitamin to ensure you meet your daily intake in case that's a concern.
u/Bzttid · 3 pointsr/transpassing

Google it, then.

(A) Nothing, I'm not trying to attack you or anything. You asked for brutal honesty and it just doesn't help you when you're trying to pass with makeup.

(B) Moisturizer isn't going to matte your face throughout the day over your makeup. By itself maybe, but still.

Again, just CC, look how you want.

This is a bit heavy but it's your preference.

You aren't a guy, you're a girl. Literally, right now as much as you may not feel it, your hormones have made you biologically female. Also, it will be a very healthy exercise in moving past the concern of what people think of you.

After you shower, when you're getting ready, and whenever it's tangled. I don't know, just brush it? Run the comb through your hair until you don't feel resistance? Again, google it, it's something that I've been doing since a very young age so it's a bit hard to explain. It will make your hair softer, healthier, promote growth, and train it to go a certain direction rather than just going everywhere. Don't yank clumps, hold your hair between your scalp and the tangled hair and brush through. Also, go look for some sort of frizz control or detangler hair stuff. Also, conditioning will help. Price is one factor, and people's reviews are another. There is an absurd amount of info on the internet: google it. And also, Head and Shoulders is junk. If you have a problem with dandruff consider using Nizoral two times a week.

To me, it sounds like the self hatred talking. See someone, express this. You need to get past it. If anything is poisoning your mind it's yourself.

Well, if you feel like you look weird with makeup then maybe you need to take a step back and understand that what you're doing isn't working and you need to change something. Not all makeup products are equal. You need to get better stuff that fits you.

Well, you need to. And it's not even a "guy" thing to not care about skin, it's just an uninformed thing. You need to care about at least your skin and your hair. It's part of basic care for yourself. If you don't take care of your skin you get cancer, and if you don't take care of your hair it'll become matted and damaged. I get the exhaustion part, that could be a number of things. I'll reference a few of them in the next few lines.

  • First off, what's your diet like? Diet will affect EVERYTHING. Food is fuel, and if your fuel is shit, your engine is gonna run like shit. Make sure you're eating veggies, fruits, and healthy proteins. Avoid processed food like the plague. This could also potentially help your energy levels as when I used to eat like shit I felt tired ALL the time.

  • Second, do you take any vitamins? I would personally look at a good multivitamin. Go to your nearest health food store and ask for a good multivitamin (without potassium obv). Also, I would personally suggest a B-complex, which will help massively with energy and with mood. A few other good ones would be C, E, fish oil capsules (omega-3s), and biotin.

  • Third, wash your face with cleanser once a day (usually at night) and with cold water in the morning.

  • Fourth, moisturize your skin twice a day, morning and evening, after you wash your face.

  • Fifth, physically exfoliate two to three times a week instead of your night time routine, or (not and) chemically exfoliate according to the chemical exfoliants directions. (Curology.com will formulate a custom chemical exfoliant for 20$ a month, works pretty good, is what I use)

  • Lastly, get some skin masks. I love Korean sheet masks for how fun they are. Skin masks are healthy and make your skin look glow-y, but most of all it makes me feel girly and it's fun!

    Hair dryers are cheaaaap, and your hair would benefit from one. You could probably get one for almost nothing at a goodwill nearby. Head and shoulders, like I said before, is bad. All sorts of drying components to it, just not great. Like I said before, I use nizoral because if I didn't I would have an insane dandruff problem (due to serrb derm), I'd suggest it if you do have flakes, if you don't get something good and suggested by the curly hair sub I linked earlier.

    Well, I can't say much there if you don't like it.
u/Minyatur · 3 pointsr/PCOS

I am sorry for the long comment, this post speaks so much to me with my previous struggles! I have psoriasis (not sure if my scalp issue is what one redditor mentioned above), and always had flaky scalp issues.

My scalp got really bad last year, where I could peel off quarter size or larger pieces off my scalp that were as thick as sheet masks (gross, I know... The itch was even worst.😢 I was ridiculously self conscious everyday ).

I switch from Pantene, head and shoulder, aveeno, and a psoriasis shampoo (yuck!). I didnt get much relief until I tried [Nizoral A-D Anti-Dandruff Shampoo] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_rJRJxbVD140P7) and started to see change half way through the bottle. I am pretty much dandruff free now! With an occasional issue of oily scalp (that I had before). I am not really sure if it's a short term effect, so I am a bit weary of changing shampoos now. :/

u/timmojo · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I'd love to hear what shampoo OP is using, too. When I went to my derm and she told me I had the same thing (sebhorreic dermatitis), she told me to wash my face with dandruff shampoo. She gave me samples of DHS 2% salicylic acid, and DHS 2% Zinc. She told me to alternate between the two.

I also picked up Nizoral (Ketoconazole) to try it. The Nizoral has a really strong medicinal smell when using it, and it stings like molten lava is being poured in your eyes with razor blades if you accidentally get some in your eyes (which I always do). So I mostly don't use it.

u/rolfraikou · 2 pointsr/LowStakesConspiracies

This teatree shampoo did wonders for my itchyness

And if you dandruff is more fungal in origin, nizoral is worth a shot.

u/little_chopper · 2 pointsr/curlyhair

So, you use no product, and you hair just looks like that? Very nice. Also, for you dandruff, may I suggest the AMAZING product, Nizoral. http://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-AntiDandruff-Shampoo-7-Ounce-Bottles/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=sr_1_3?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1425628128&sr=1-3&keywords=dandruff+shampoo

u/imlookinup · 2 pointsr/AskDocs

Looks like something I had under my breasts a while back. I think it was a fungal infection...possibly yeast? Things do get sweaty and moist in those regions.

It was flat and did not feel itchy. It seemed to spread slightly, but very slowly.

I used a ketoconazole shampoo (specifically Nizoral) on the area. I lathered up the shampoo, rubbed it in the affected area and let it set for a couple minutes before rinsing it off.

I think I did this three days in a row before it went away completely never to return again. Before treatment the “rash” had been there for months, so I’m pretty sure that’s what cured it.

Best of luck.

Edit: Shoot. Sorry I’m not a doc. Forgot what sub I was on.

u/rbusiness · 2 pointsr/FierceFlow

I had the same issue last winter. I tried coconut oil and showering with cold water and showering less often, but nothing seemed to help much. Then I just started using head and shoulders and it helped a lot. I was still having some issues so I got this shampoo that has a different active ingredient than head and shoulders:


I use it maybe three times a week and don't have itchy scalp anymore. While going for an all natural solution is nice, I found this to be way easier and more effective. Good luck hope this helped.

u/Purpleandbrown · 2 pointsr/HaircareScience

> I have this same thing. I used to have a bald patch at the back of my head but it eventually grew back. It's completely normal now.

Just for clarity you excessively scratched the crown of the scalp for a year or two (?) but eventually grew back? Hopefully that patch behind your ear grows back like your scalp did though.

> What kind of oils helped you, if you don't mind my asking?

For sure! The oil I use is called fluocinolone acetonide 0.01% topical oil. Additionally I was prescribed ketoconazole 2% shampoo. I don't use the shampoo anymore as it was only prescribed to be used 2 times a week for 4 weeks. My scalp still doesn't itch as much even without the ketoconazole. Also, the ketoconazole I was prescribed is Nizoral AntiDandruff Shampoo but 2x stronger.


u/lilyliveredhappy · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Nizoral has worked very well for me.

Its a little pricey for the small amount, but a little goes a long way

u/EvolveFX · 2 pointsr/Supplements


I've only used the Nizoral branded one. I think it is the most commonly suggested since it was one of the first. You can find it on Amazon and I think I've seen it at places such as Walmart as well. I alternative between my normal shampoo and this one.

u/tonufan · 2 pointsr/eczema

It depends. They have different antifungals. Some infections are weaker to certain antifungals than others. Nizoral Shampoo with Ketoconazole 1% is one of the best ones you can get for most fungal infections.

u/gooseandteets · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

A few things that worked for me.

  1. Get a scalp massager . I got this one on Amazon and I use it with my shampoo.

  2. Buy Nizoral and use every few days.

    3: Always blow dry your hair and never go to bed with a wet scalp.

    Doing this combination helped me and I no longer have any flakes! Good luck!
u/dc041894 · 2 pointsr/malehairadvice

Visit /r/tressless and do some research. The "big 3 for hairloss are Minoxidil, Finasteride, and Nizoral. Keep in mind some people respond better to these than others so your results will vary. If you want a temporary coverup, use a concealer like Toppik or Cabooki

Good to know!

>3) A lot of people swear by using a wide-tooth comb, with their head upside down, in the shower, with their hair full of conditioner.

Another question about conditioner: How do I apply it, anyway? Does it get rubbed into the scalp like shampoo, or just sort of slathered onto the ends of the hair? I remember reading on Reddit in another thread "Shampoo is for the scalp, conditioner is for the hair."

>You can also just comb your hair in the shower with your fingers and your conditioner-- I like using a comb better because it feels more effective, to me.

>The other reason we don't comb after showering

Okay, so...combing in the shower is okay with the conditioner, but combing after isn't?

>I think this stuff is hard, and a lot of us just don't get good info on hair or skincare. Good luck to you.

Thanks. I'm kind of intimidated. Part of me want to get a crewcut again and be done with it...:P.

I'm sorry you're struggling with this, I know how embarrassing it can be to have flakes and itchiness and be generally miserable about your scalp. :( I'd definitely take the advice of everyone else and ask about psoriasis, though I don't personally have any experience with the condition.

I moved to Texas about a year ago and the change in climate wrecked my scalp; I was flaking and itching constantly and it was beyond embarrassing. On this sub's recommendation I tried Nizoral A-D and saw a drastic improvement after the first wash. It's not too pricey as well. Good luck finding something that works and don't give up!

u/noodleparty · 2 pointsr/Dermatology

Nope! You can find it at a local drug store like cvs or Walgreens in the shampoo dandruf section or on amazon

As for the bra - you can totally wear one but once you do the first treatment make sure you are wearing clean bras after that. Fungal stuff is hard to get rid of 100%. But just wash everything in some hot water until the skin is clear again. Once it’s clear you can be a little more relaxed and just use the nizoral as a body wash every other day or whatever.

Hi there!

I just wanted to let you know that Automod has removed your submission because it contains an Amazon referral link, which we don't allow in the sub.

Could you please edit the Nizoral URL so that everything from (and including) "tag=" is removed? That way, the product page will still be visible - but no one can make a profit from the link.

Alternatively, copy this link:


If you've done that, please reply to this message so I can approve your submission. Thank you!

There was another thread about this recently that also peaked my interest because the description was SO similar to some things I was dealing with (chronically). I had to dig a little bit in the comments for an OTC solution, but I ended up buying some Nizoral to try as a face wash. I'm only a week in, but holy SHIT, already making a difference. I should mention that if I have this (self-diagnosing here, I know I shouldn't), it's pretty mild. Certainly not even close to what google images shows, just more like chronic dry skin in certain areas. If yours is more severe, I'd say go to a doctor to get prescription strength.

u/baldingboy2016 · 1 pointr/tressless

Is there a 2%? I looked on Amazon and there's only a one percent.
Is this it?

u/tress_1 · 1 pointr/tressless

Turning 18 in about 2 months and I have noticed my hair has gotten thinner, especially around my crown area and my sides. I haven't gotten much sleep over the past 2 years, and my diet hasn't been great, however, I am improving both of these. At 16 I started to notice thinning, and I took some biotin tablets for about a few weeks, although it seemed to help, my skin got far too oily so I stopped.

My father isn't fully bald, he's about a Norwood 4 at in his early 50's, and on my mom's side, one of her brothers early 40's is a Norwood 4.5 or so, and her other brother is late 30's with no recession at all.

I went to a dermatologist mid-2018 and he said there was some thinning up top, but nothing much to worry about otherwise. He said I could start taking minoxidil, but that I was too young for finasteride. I don't plan on taking finasteride until I'm in my early 20's, or if my hair worsens significantly. For the time being, I am planning on 5% taking liquid minoxidil, - https://www.biovea.com/ca/en/product_detail.aspx?PID=3954&deptid=0&cid=0&OS=204&NAME=FOLIGAIN-MINOXIDIL-5--HAIR-REGROWTH-TREATMENT-For-Men-6-Month-Supply ,

using either a dermaroller https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Luxury-Titanium-Micro-Needle-Therapy-Derma-Roller-Meso-Roller-Anti-ageing/173867389697?hash=item287b4dd301:m:mUUTTUe_Qn186FzOOND54Ww

or a derma pen https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Dr-pen-Electric-Derma-Pen-Needles-Auto-Microneedle-Roller-ULTIMA-M7-2-Pcs-Needle/142997937310?var=441964207186

Nizoral shampoo twice a week- https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AINMFAC/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Biotin shampoo for the rest - https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/ogx-thick-full-biotin-collagen-shampoo/6000187397711

Is this a reasonable route to take?

I also had a few questions:

  1. Is it worth going with a derma pen over a derma roller, and for the derma pen are the m5 and m7 essentially the same? Also are there any good tutorials showing how to use them.
  2. Will minoxidil help grow back hair around the sides and hairline?
  3. How long does the shedding process last for minoxidil
  4. Are there any major side effects with the products I have chosen
  5. Are there any other essential products for someone my age

    Any other suggestions are welcome, I live in Canada btw so please take that into consideration when recommending products, also I will be paying for everything myself so I would like to keep things reasonably priced, thanks.

Although I haven't started Rogaine yet, I ordered this cause I saw another comment saying it helped with the itching and the dry scalp.

u/crazykoala · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I've been using the run-of-the-mill dandruff shampoos for years finally a doctor recommended Nizoral shampoo and I've had good luck with that. I use that about once a week now and wash my face and ears with it too.

However, shampoo removes the oil and dries the skin which isn't good. So I'm using a tea tree conditioner after shampooing with the Nizoral. I don't use the shampoo every day so I just use conditioner on days that I shower and don't shampoo my hair.

I also picked up a hair dryer because I learned that psoriasis is a fungus and I thought leaving my hair wet and letting it air dry might be contributing to the problem.

Anyway, that's what I've done to get my psoriasis/eczema under control.

Some folks recommend jojoba oil in the hair to restore the oils that shampooing removes. I tried it for a couple of weeks but my skin got red and itchy. Hemp seed oil and neem oil have turned up in my Amazon searches as antiseptic, anti-fungal treatments but I haven't tried those yet.

The Nizoral shampoo definitely helped tho. I'd recommend that for sure.

u/hair2compare · 1 pointr/tressless

On Amazon, it is appears Regenpure is cheaper than Nizoral.

Nizoral 7 oz costs $21.74 = $3.10 per oz

Regenpure 8 oz costs $18.70 = $2.34 per oz.

Anyway, it lasts a while. I started using Nizoral in April 2014 and I still have a fifth of the bottle left. Granted, I keep my hair fairly short and there was a month where I forgot to use it, but still the cost per month is pretty low.

As for 1% vs 2%, whatever research I've done in the area has led me to the conclusion that 2% won't make much of a difference over 1% in terms of helping your hair. In my opinion, whatever additional benefit 2% gives is outweighed by the extra expense and difficulty in getting it (2% requires a prescription).

u/HighEnergyBrit · 1 pointr/FierceFlow

Have you tried just using conditioner? I had that problem and now just use conditioner and rinse it off after leaving it in for 5 minutes and no more dandruff

Shampoo made my scalp itchy and dry

You could also try Nizoral shampoo - https://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-D-Anti-Dandruff-Shampoo-Oz/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1482979077&sr=1-1&keywords=nizoral

u/WebSlingerXLI · 1 pointr/BlackHair

By far the best I've used.

Nizoral A-D Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, 7 Oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_kcyNAbJ6QZVW1

I shampoo once a week and condition/moisturize everyday. But obviously do what works best for you and your situation.

I don't use this shampoo all the time though. But you mentioned dandruff shampoos, and it's a good one to have in your arsenal.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/AskDocs

Not a doctor... but it looks like a skin fungus to me. You can try using this stuff on it and see if it clears up.

u/esselaffe · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty


If it's inflammation/or fungal based. 3 times a week to get it under control then once every 2 weeks after.

u/Kreuzheben · 1 pointr/steroids

What compounds were you taking your first cycle? If you didn't go beyond test and an oral, your acne may have been estrogen related, in which case it could potentially be fixed by an increased AI dosage. If that isn't the problem, another user here recommended this shampoo that contains 1% ketoconazole, which they claimed made their skin more clear than any other time in their life. Personally, I'm currently on a Test/Tren cycle and have had almost no acne taking 12.5mg aromasin daily, as someone who previously got acne from test alone when my estrogen wasn't in control.

u/BananaMuscle · 1 pointr/steroids

Thanks to the answers to one of my other Q's in this thread I've decided to get a shampoo with 1% Ketoconazole but I'm being much more specific with the question. Which of these do you guys like more?

Nizoral or L'emarie (or something different?)

I realize Nizoral is the most popular but I would love something less harsh on my hair and the L'emarie is marketed much differently than the "anti-dandruff" Nizo and just seems to be made by gentler people although it still says "DHT blocker".

u/crackercrumb · 1 pointr/malehairadvice

No problem. Another thing he might want to try is this shampoo which some people say helps stop hairloss.

u/nervousdogs · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Ketoconazole helped a lot for me. I used a little bit of Nizoral shampoo ( Nizoral A-D Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, 7 Fl. Oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_CneHDb2NEBSVE ) with cleanser once a day until the bumps started going away (a couple weeks?), and now I use it once every other day or two days.

u/theboysaccount · 1 pointr/SebDerm

hello everyone!! so here is my routine (i’ll admit it’s pretty simple and mostly stolen from others on this subreddit so don’t credit me for this stuff!! just passing it along)


-First of all, this shampoo brush has been a game changer. So my basic understanding is that you really want to get those flakes off your scalp when you shampoo, but you also don’t want to scrub so hard that you scratch your scalp with your sharp nails which is why this brush is perfect. It does a fantastic job of massaging the scalp and just feels amazing. Don’t scrub too hard with it either!!


Okay so pretty much i’m alternating between three different shampoos:

  1. Nizoral A-D Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, 7 Fl. Oz


    • Monday, Wednesday, Saturday

    • Right now I use this 3 times a week because it’s early on in my sebderm treatment. Pretty soon i’ll be reducing how much I use it once my sebderm is really more fully in control for a while. It’s pretty strong so you really shouldn’t use it daily which is why i’ll be switching up my routine soon. I’ll include what i’ll be changing my routine to at the bottom of this post.

  2. Dr. Eddie's Happy Cappy Medicated Shampoo for Children, Treats Dandruff and Seborrheic Dermatitis, Clinically Tested, Fragrance Free, Stops Flakes and Redness on Sensitive Scalps and Skin, 8 oz


    • Tuesday, Friday, Sunday

    • This has really become my favorite shampoo by a long shot. It’s gentle because it’s generally for babies but as you can see in the comments, great for adults too. Doesn’t strip the oils in your hair so I also highly recommend this on days you don’t want frizzy hair but feel like you should wash your hair.

  3. Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo Original Formula


    • Thursdays

    • So while this has helped my scalp in the past a bit, I mostly still use it because I have a few bottles left over and it’s smart to switch up shampoos so you don’t become immune to one. Someone on this sub recommended the generic amazon brand of this shampoo which i’ll probably be trying soon once I run out of the name brand stuff.

      Okay so, although I really want to nuke the shit out of my scalp, I know it’s not smart in the long term so i’m going to translation into a new routine pretty soon. The only new product i’ll be adding to my routine is:

  • Dr. Eddie's Happy Cappy Daily Shampoo & Body Wash for Children, Soothes Dry, Itchy, Irritated, Sensitive Skin, Dermatologist Tested, Fragrance Free, Dye Free, Sulfate Free, 8 oz


    • This is just a daily, not medicated version of the Dr. Eddie’s shampoo i’m using right now.

      I’ll update if it changes but as of right now my projected routine will be:

      -Monday: Nizoral
      -Tuesday: Dr. Eddie’s Daily Shampoo
      -Wednesday: Dr. Eddie’s Medicated Shampoo
      -Thursday: Dr. Eddie’s Daily Shampoo
      -Friday: Dr. Eddie’s Medicated Shampoo
      -Saturday; Dr. Eddie’s Daily Shampoo
      -Sunday: T-Gel

      I’m hoping even to only do this routine for just a bit if my sebderm is fully in control. My IDEAL routine will eventually be:

      -Monday: Nizoral/T-gel (Switching back and forth between these)
      -Tuesday: No Shampoo
      -Wednesday: Dr. Eddie’s Medicated shampoo
      -Thursday: Dr. Eddie’s Daily shampoo
      -Friday: No shampoo
      -Saturday: Dr. Eddie’s Daily shampoo
      -Sunday: Dr. Eddie’s Medicated shampoo

      Hope this helps! My sebderm and shedding isn’t completely gone yet, but it’s DRAMATICALLY improved. I honestly almost want to cry tears of joy when I run my hands through my hair without a BUNCH of hairs on my hands afterward. I’m also going to experimenting with tea tree oil on my scalp soon to retain moisture. DO NOT SLEEP ON THE SHAMPOO BRUSH!!! Let me know if ya have any questions!

      I also just want to mention that this has been after a long journey of seeing several doctors who didn’t have a clue how to help, dermatologists who claimed to know how to help, and hair transplant specialists that had to assure me I most likely did not have male pattern baldness when I was freaking out that I might. Don’t give up! Treat your scalp well and eat well! Also avoid hairloss subreddits lol even if your hairloss IS genetic lol

This isn’t prescription strength but it did the job for me (it’s 1% and prescription is 2%)

Three questions: Do I have to get prescribed by a dermatologist for the finasteride? Is this the right site/price to get these things? And what is the 1mm dermaroller?

u/ChooseLife2017 · 1 pointr/tressless

Hey, you look great! can I just ask one thing please buddy:

I have this written down thus far:

u/calamityjaneagain · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I second Tea tree oil. Also get Nizoral (sometimes hard to find at the drugstore, but you don’t need a prescription for it) shampoo. Eventually you only need to use it once a week to control the dandruff. Then in between you can use your curly hair products!

u/kmoney1215 · 1 pointr/Dermatology

You could try Nizoral shampoo (https://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-Anti-Dandruff-Shampoo-Ketoconazole-Dandruff/dp/B00AINMFAC) and hydrocortisone 1% (https://www.amazon.com/Natureplex-Hydrocortisone-Cream-Tube-Pack/dp/B008SAJOEC) but if it doesn’t work I’d go see at least primary care. They should be able to manage you without sending you to a dermatologist.

u/funktion · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

That's the form I used it in. There's all sorts of other forms but I didn't bother with 'em. Pretty much just this stuff. A bottle lasts me roughly 3/4 months, depending on whether I do it once a week for maintenance of twice a week for breakouts.

u/xenoburn · 1 pointr/tressless

I use Kroger generic liquid minoxidil. We have a chain of grocery stores in Colorado called King Soopers that sells Kroger products of brand name stuff. If you have a Costco membership, I heard they sell very affordable minoxidil but I’m sure you can find generic minoxidil at one of your local grocery stores if you don’t.
I haven’t tried Regenepure but was considering getting some when I was first looking for a solution to my hair loss. Thanks! I might look into getting a dermapen because the roller can be quite painful sometimes and it catches on my long hair; I’ve seen great results from people on this subreddit who’ve exclusively used it though.

u/welp42 · 1 pointr/tressless

I do Nizoral 1% every other day because my head can be particularly itchy/dry, but some people do every few days. Before I put in my hair, I use OGX Biotin & Collagen shampoo. Don't get it from Amazon, you can get a 50% bigger bottle from Target for $6. After rinsing the Nizoral out, I use OGX Fight Fallout conditioner because Nizoral can definitely dry your hair out too much. Again, get it at Target for cheaper. Same routine applies except without the Nizoral on the other days. Make sure you let everything sit in your hair (especially Nizoral) for a few minutes before rinsing out.

I'm almost out of Nizoral and I'm thinking of replacing it with Regenepure since it's sulfate-free, so I might change up the routine then.

u/Skuacide · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

If your skin hasn't responded to antibiotics, it's possible you're dealing with Malassezia Folliculitis (fungal "acne"). This guide https://simpleskincarescience.com/pityrosporum-folliculitis-treatment-malassezia-cure/ helped me clear my skin in about two months after spending five years dealing with pimples that wouldn't respond to typical acne treatments.

Of course, YMMV, but my current routine is nothing in the AM, PM shower using Head and Shoulders on hair/body (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MXLFQGB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1), Pantene on hair (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MTNOJ2Z/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1), and sulfur soap on my face (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CST4AS4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). Right after shower, I slap on some aloe vera gel (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IRAFRQW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) followed by MSM gel (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O379PC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and then Cerave Baby Cream (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WH31P7A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1). Twice a week I put Nizoral (https://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-Anti-Dandruff-Shampoo-Ketoconazole-Dandruff/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=nizoral&qid=1566134798&s=gateway&sr=8-3) on my face and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then wash it off. I've run this full routine by a licensed dermatologist who told me the sulfur and Nizoral would do the heavy lifting to keep the Malassezia at bay, and as far as I can tell those two items are the keystones of this routine. Everything else I use because the sulfur and Nizoral can be very drying. All of those products I pulled from that skincare blog, so I would read through it and see if the skin condition addressed there matches what you're experiencing.

Good luck. This is the routine that made my skin do a complete 180 in February after I saw no improvement from derm prescribed antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide.

The best product for dandruff is Nizoral. It's expensive, but it truly works, and if you want proof, [check out the reviews on Amazon:] (https://www.amazon.com/Nizoral-AntiDandruff-Shampoo-7-Ounce-Bottles/dp/B00AINMFAC/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1468665209&sr=1-1&keywords=Nizoral#customerReviews)

u/mustaine42 · 1 pointr/Supplements

Just buy off amazon.


It was originally targeted at dandruff users. Dandruff users skin flaked off their scalps due to what could have been a combination of multiple factors: dryness, irritation, inflammation, dirty environment, bad circulation, dht, etc.

Eventually they found out the stuff worked great for stopping hairloss, was cheap, unobtrusive to lifestyle, and pretty much most reasonable anti-hairloss method if you dont want to create a maintenance program that takes 20 minutes out of your life everyday that might not even work.

I loss a decent chunk of hair in college. Then after trying a bunch of different things, I started using this daily. Even 1-2 times a week helps significantly. Hairloss hasnt progressed much since then. Wish I would have started earlier. The minox/fin/other stuff is too expensive (or life threatening), takes too much maintenance (I dont want to be a fucking woman) and doesnt really produce a great result for everything you put into it (fin does, but I value my life more than my hair).
