Finasteride vs Nizoral or Minoxidil

There have been case reports citing Nizoral has a strong anti-androgen property which is responsible for blocking/inhibition of androgen (testosterone and DHT) receptors.  Minoxidil is comparable to Nizoral. However finasteride is more effective than both for male patterned baldness. Using Nizoral shampoo 2-3 times a week is the usual dosage.

Nizoral Shampoo for Hair Loss

Nizoral shampoo does not work to combat hair loss. Best to seek FDA approved medications that can be used topically and orally to combat hair loss.

Nizoral shampoo vs minoxidil bs propecia

the shampoo is used for dandruff and it is not effective for hair loss. However minoxidil and propecia have been scientifically proven to help with hair loss. The effect varies from person to person and propecia is effective in men only.

Nixoral, finasteride ad minoxidil

Nizoral will not impact your hair loss, only your dandruff. Minoxidil varies in value with each patients, some have some results while other have poor results. Twice a day treatment with Minoxidil is recommended. Finasride is very effective when taken at about 1mg daily in men under the age of 35.
