A clean bill of hair health.
Nizoral® Shampoo for men.
Nizoral® 2% shampoo is available by prescription for men. Research shows that it promotes hair growth, particularly when used in combination with finasteride (also known as Propecia®). Clinical trials have found that 40% of men experienced some hair regrowth when using Nizoral® on a daily basis.
Nizoral® has broad-spectrum anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It was originally developed to combat dandruff and skin conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis. It is believed that the active ingredient, an antibiotic called ketoconazole, binds to the male hormones near the hair follicles slowing the loss process and promoting hair growth.
How to use Nizoral® shampoo
Nizoral®shampoo must be used daily. Simply replace your current shampoo with Nizoral® shampoo and lather as usual. Nizoral® shampoo must be left in lather form on your scalp for 3-5 minutes, then it may be rinsed off as usual. Prescriptions are usually written for a one-year period and can be filled at most pharmacies. Renewed prescriptions can be done via phone.
