Nazca, If that was the case…then Nizoral wouldn’t even work for dandruff. The keto is formulated to PENETRATE the scalp. Ketoconazole has been found in the dermis at “therapeutic concentration” a week after using nizoral according to their website.
Nizoral’s instructions are to wash, rinse, repeat. Most dandruff shampoos tell you wash and leave in for “several minutes” (like T-Gel and T-Sal for instance).
Nizoral probably only needs to be used 2 to 3 times a week, but guys would almost certainly see much more benefit if they would leave the suds in for a good 3 minutes or so, allowing the ketoconazole to penetrate. Your scalp is much more permeable when warm and moist, allowing the shampoo formulation to get the active ingredient through the skin.
I thought the pic showed very obvious thickening of the crown. You could easily see his scalp before. It looked about like what I’d expect from 5% minox.
There is a study that compared nizoral shampoo FAVORABLY to minox http://www.hairsite.com/hair-loss/forum_entry-id-49889-page-0-category-5-order-last_answer.html I wonder if the guys in the study had left the nizoral in for several minutes would have seen an even -greater- benefit?
For a guy who didn’t want to fool with a topical or an internal, just rotating nizoral and NANO shampoo would probably help him hold the line up there for a long while.
