Does anyone here have any experience of Provillus


#1

My dad (slick bold) is about to buy Provillus and I was wondering if anyone on the board had used it. Searching hairsite for it comes up blank. Not a good sign! It contains saw palmetto and 16 other ingredients. My initial reaction was it wouldn’t do much good. But on trust michael .com it raves about it, but I have concerns over how independent the site is. Thankyou.

This product does contain both minoxidil and azelaic acid. Both have been shown to have varying degrees of success. I doubt that your “slick” bald father would see much of a benefit from it. Given the high cost of the topical and supplement ($49.95/month), I would suggest that your father try plain minoxidil first.

Are you thinking of using any other topicals alongside minox?

No, I cannot find one that sounds interesting enough to use. I desperately need something to fight the chronic inflammation, but have no idea what to use. I can visibly see the inflammation on my scalp - the scalp is a markedly different color than surrounding skin and my scalp always feels “over-heated”.

My scalp was really messed up also - this strategy worked for me:

  1. Used the Piroctone Olamine shampooo daily / every other day until no benefit was gained.
  2. Used the Calosol Shampoo a few times a week until no benefit was gained.
  3. At this point my inflammation had been “driven down” but my scalp had been dried out in the process.
  4. I introduced Essential Oils into my regime to re condition my scalp.
  5. Now I alternate my Essential Oils with either shampoo when it feels necessary. RESULT = My scalp condition is vastly improved.

In my case the Essential oils alongside the shampoos were a BIG factor in improvement in the conditon of my scalp and hairloss.

Thanks to both Pete and The One for the suggestions - I will try both.
