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.

To combat MPB, you need to cover all bases. MPB is caused by a couple different things:

  1. Tightening of the galea, the muscle above the eyebrows.
    As it gets tighter, oxygenation of blood goes down. This is confirmed by many studies (men with MPB have 43% less oxygenation of scalp blood than non balding men). T converts to DHT in low oxygen environments. This is why DHT levels are higher in the scalp of MPB patients than in non MPB patients (serum DHT levels are the same in both groups though).

    This is the toughest one for people to take. They've been told for a very long time that its (all genetic). While its true, it may very well be genetic, that's not really an acceptable answer as to why some people lose their hair and others don't. Everything is genetic. In the case of cancer, that's a purely genetic disease. Yet they didn't just give up trying to fight cancer because its "genetic."

    There is some truth in the genetic theory. Some people have more Androgen receptors (there's 2 types in the scalp i think) in their scalp. But when they tested MPB patients, those who had more androgen receptors due to their genetics were still in the minority (around 35% I believe).

    Also, if this genetic theory were completely true in that hairloss is not being caused by some outside force, then there would be no pattern. The pattern disproves the genetic theory immediately, since all the hairs on your head would minaturize at the same rate.

    This doesn't happen though, and there is a distinct pattern.

    The same people who believe the genetic theory do agree though, that the miniaturization is happening because of DHT. Since there is a gradual pattern towards the center of the scalp, we can agree that the DHT accumulation is happening gradually towards the center. This conflicts with their being an end all be all genetic issue.

    This gradual DHT accumulation supports the tight scalp theory.

    Also, they've had an 80% success rate growing hair back in balding patients by using botox in the muscles around the scalp (nail in the coffin).

    http://www.jwatch.org/jd201111100000001/2011/11/10/growing-hair-with-botox

  2. Fungus. Yes, that's right, fungus. One of the best remedies for MPB is an anti-fungal called ketoconazole. Certain organisms that live on our skin actually can cause sebum (oil) buildup, and its speculated that this buildup may contribute to DHT accumulation in the scalp.

  3. Genetic hormone levels: it could just be caused by some people creating more DHT than most people. This is very rare though.

    Solutions:
  4. Fungal shampoo. Use every day (don't use any other shampoos):

    http://www.amazon.com/Regenepure-Doctor-Recommended-Shampoo-Treatment/dp/B0032FSDOA

    This is a great one. Keep it on for 5 minutes, then wash it out really well.

    http://www.amazon.com/PURA-DOR-Anti-Hair-Premium-Organic/dp/B00FH692PQ/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1458332475&sr=8-1&keywords=pura+d%27or

    I really like this one. Makes your hair super soft. It says leave it on for 2 minutes, but I leave it on for 5.

  5. Minoxidil. Minoxidil 5% works well, but there's different blends of stuff. The best one is the one with retinol. There's only one company that sells it with retinol (retinol is used to speed up cell division. Clinical studies show that minoxidil with retinol is far more effective.

  6. finasteride. Just get a perscription. Buy it from india on the cheap. Not a great solution, but right now, its the only mainstream way.

  7. Rosemary oil: use this as conditioner and rub it in. Great for regrowth.

    http://www.amazon.com/NOW-Foods-Rosemary-Oil-ounce/dp/B0014UEEXY/ref=sr_1_2_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1458332618&sr=8-2&keywords=now+rosemary+oil

  8. RU58841 : experimental androgen inhibitor. Works really well. Buy it from rui-products.com

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!

  • Usually I have a hair oil blend massaged into my scalp and left there for 2-3 hours before I shower. It's a mix of castor oil, grapeseed oil, rosemary, lavender, cedarwood, and thyme essential oils. Once a week I skip that and instead do an all-over hair mask with coconut oil, neem oil, and a few drops of tea tree oil.

  • First I gently use a dry brush, all over, before getting into the shower.

  • I use Pura d'Or shampoo or Regenepure shampoo every other day. Otherwise I just massage my scalp gently with warm water. I have short hair and use hair oils, so I don't use conditioner.

  • I use Acure Organics Coconut Pumpkin Body Wash (I like all their body washes) if I'm feeling dirty, otherwise mainly just a konjac sponge and water, or I scrub my shins, feet, etc with a Salux cloth. I use zinc soap on my upper arms, shoulder blades, and upper chest. I used to use CeraVe Foaming Cleanser as a body wash but now I just use it as a hand soap.

  • Out of the shower I use Acure Organics Cocoa Butter + CoQ10 Ultra-hydrating Unscented Body Lotion and Andalou Naturals Lavender Shea Hand Cream though I'm not particularly loyal when it comes to body moisturizers.

  • Once a week I use Japanese bath salts for relaxing in the tub. Once every three months or so I use Tony Moly Shiny Foot Peel.

    As you can see, there's an absence of Asian beauty products simply because I'm on a "naturally-derived" kick again and when it comes to body stuff I like it to be inexpensive and easily accessible. All the Acure Organics and Andalou Naturals stuff I get I can buy at a local grocery store. Special stuff like bath salts or treatments I like to order since Japanese bath salts are always the best.

Have you only used norzal (however it's spelt)?

If so know that there are other keto shampoos which are far less harsh and contain stuff to make your hair overall healthier.

u/zazz · 2 pointsr/malegrooming

I've been looking into trying Ketoconazole in shampoo form, often under brands such as Nizoral or Regenepure. While an anti-fungal prescribed mainly for dandruff, it has been shown to be as effective as Minoxidil in some people. You can get the 1% without a perscription and I don't think there are harsh side effects, aside from possible shedding a lot of hair initially. Take this information with a grain of salt as I haven't tried it yet.

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/sefefe · 1 pointr/tressless

I'll give the coconut oil a shot for at least a month or so. I mean my hair on top isn't super long, I feel like the scalp won't be super visible once it grows a bit longer. And I tried to find Minoxidil on Amazon.ca, and the closest thing is a shampoo with really good reviews, in regards to such a problem:

u/jimdiddly · 1 pointr/tressless

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0032FSDOA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_12dhnbsCsZf4V I’ve had pretty moderate dandruff since before I even knew I had hair issues, but I tried this consistently awhile back(January or so?) and it did a good job of getting rid of it. Its back now cus I ran out and $25 is a lot for shampoo lol. I don’t know the science behind this, though—I’m 19 and dumb and if it says it’s good I’ll put it on my head.

Trick for me was to make sure it got on my scalp and then leave it there for a hot minute or so

u/Susie_QQ · 1 pointr/asktransgender

This is my shampoo BTW: http://www.amazon.com/Regenepure-Doctor-Recommended-Shampoo-Treatment/dp/B0032FSDOA
Nizoral will work too (the ketoconazole is what you're after), but this stuff is sulfate-free and doesn't have a terrible chemical smell. DHT blockers won't make as much of a difference once T gets knocked clear down to female normal, but I'll stick with this stuff anyway cause it's also great for dandruff. It's a little pricey, but my current bottle has lasted 3 months and is still about 1/4 full (shampooing every other day right now, with more growth I'll use more but eventually just twice a week - not really effective for hair growth at that point but enough to get the anti-dandruff effect).

u/TomN · 1 pointr/tressless

Keto binds to your scalp and hair, so you can get maximum use out of with just two times a week. You probably don't want to use more than that because keto dries your hair so you can use a thickening shampoo the rest of the days.

You can use your shampoo as often as you want since it doesn't have keto and therefore doesn't dry you hair.

Also, you don't have to use nizoral, there are plenty of others with keto, just look at the ingredients.

beta sitosterol, biotin, and MSM. MSM makes my hair and nails grow like crazy, but not sure if it helps with hair loss or growing new hair. I just have to cut my hair and nails way more often. The keto shampoo seems to help, too, I use this one.

u/throwalegalal · 1 pointr/tressless

> I keep seeing rumblings about terrible sexual side effects of finasteride but have yet to see anything substantiated. So I'm just going to ignore that entirely and take the plunge. Is going to a dermatologist the best route to ask about a prescription?

2% experience sexual side effects of which all have gone away on their own while continuing use or after stopping usage in scientific studies. All the horror stories I've read have been anecdotal. I spent about 6 months debating whether or not to hop on fin, only regret has been not hopping on it earlier. Derm is the best route. Many Hair Transplant doctors give free consultations and will write you prescriptions as well. Ask for generics, much cheaper.

> I read somewhere that Rogaine is only for vertex thinning- is this true? Since I don't have that issue, should I bother?

I think this is because the main study done focused on the crown. There has been evidence it can help on the temples but not as strong as the crown.

>Can I continue to use regular shampoos in conjunction with it? Are there any shampoos I should avoid? I use a soy paste product to sculpt my hair, could that be an issue? Are there any other hair products / foods / anything I should generally avoid?

Yes, many people first wash with a normal shampoo then use Niz. You can also get prescription 2% niz from derm/ht doctor which you use every other day. Keto shampoo can be somewhat harsh on your scalp/hair (dry), althought I've had no problems. http://www.amazon.com/Regenepure-Shampoo-Treatment-Supports-Growth/dp/B0032FSDOA?tag=dailydeal0c6-20 is slightly more expensive but has many more ingredients to help counteract irritation and dryness.

No products you're putting in your hair are going to speed up your MPB. Shampoos containing Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) can be more drying than others, which can in theory make the hairs weaker which may make them fall out faster, but won't effect whether or not they regrow back as MPB does.

In terms of food - supplements such as creatine or steroids can increase DHT production and increase MPB. I've also read sorghum (a grain) increases 5-alpha-reductase and DHT, its pretty uncommon in day-to-day foods unless you're gluten free.

Some other thoughts: I've been using a volumizing mouse/shampoo and it definitely helps my hair look fuller/hide the thinning spots. You can also use something like TOPPIK to help conceal, but I've found that the brownish colors have an almost green tint to them in certain light and can be pretty annoying applying to the hairline. I think people who have black hair benefit most from hair fibers.

I think that's a better (less harsh/drying) ketoconazole shampoo than Nizoral. I use it every other day as well as Minox twice a day and don't have any issues. I also use the Regenepure Nourishing Treatment Shampoo (https://www.amazon.com/Regenepure-Nourishing-Treatment-Thickening-Strengthening/dp/B0032FQSZG/) which helps hair from being dried out, and also has ingredients that are more gentle on hair/scalp than typical shampoos.

u/LNG · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Sorry in advance for the length of my comment but speaking from personal experience, your acne could be caused by fungus/yeast, not bacteria. It's called Malassezia Yeast and we all have it on our skin, but it can cause issues when it becomes overgrown. This overgrowth is called Pityrosporum folliculitis and looks almost identical to other forms of acne.

Other evidence that points towards fungus is the fact that you're breaking out on other parts of your body. The fungus spreads easily, especially if you give it a nice environment to thrive, like sweaty workouts!

I had perfect skin until I was about 22, and suddenly developed acne on my face, chest, and back. It was so bizarre and none of the traditional acne treatments were helping because, as I later figured out, most products are geared towards bacterial breakouts, including benzoyl peroxide. In fact, overuse of these products can cause fungus/yeast to take over the balance and cause all sorts of issues!

So, after months of research I came to the conclusion that I did indeed have fungal acne, so I started a routine to combat it. I was desperate at first, so I bought an anti-dandruff shampoo (because dandruff is commonly caused by fungus). [This one is great because its SLS free!]
(https://www.amazon.com/Regenepure-Shampoo-Treatment-Supports-Growth/dp/B0032FSDOA/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1485317432&sr=8-1&keywords=dr.+regenepure) In the shower, I slathered it all all over my face and body, let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinsed it off. All of the breakouts started disappearing overnight, literally.

I felt strange using shampoo on my face so I decided to do more research and discovered that zinc is an amazing natural antifungal. So, I purchased this bar of soap, which contains 2% Pyrithione Zinc (an antimicrobial) and it was also very effective. I only use that about every three days now, and only on my body, because I have super sensitive skin and it is too drying for my face.

For my face, I now use Curology because they offer Zinc Pyrithione as an ingredient! My current formulation is .25% Zinc Pyrithione, 1% Clindamycin, and 4% Niacinamide and it is AMAZING. I'm now free of any and all breakouts.

I also use this mineral sunscreen because it uses zinc oxide - another form of zinc that is an antifungal!

For me, I have to maintain a routine or else the overgrowth returns, so I also take zinc picolinate supplements.
So, yeah, I hope this helps give some insight on your skincare journey!!

*EDIT!

I also want to point out the necessity of being super gentle on your skin, in general. I always think "kill it with kindness" when it comes to skin issues. You definitely don't want to make things worse by over-exfoliating (chemical and physical), using harsh cleansers that strip your natural oils, and above all you must keep your moisture barrier in tip top shape because it will protect you from excess fungus and bacteria!

I decided to give you my whole routine as an example, so here it is! I focus on moisture.

This is one of the best ketoconazole (anti-dandruff) shampoos. Compared to this head-and-shoulders did nothing for me.
