Diamond Dave, and another poster (who was alleged to be the same guy due to similar URL’s, but apparantly was indeed posting from a different computer—quick do you have a second computer?) was recently BANNED from <> for spamming up the entire forum claiming shampoo was the cause of baldness in humans. He (or “they”) attacked the forum for about two weeks before admin. had enough and banned them forever.
I’ll go ahead and let you folks know some of the arguments you will be encountering with these two clowns (or clown with two names, whatever) that you will be encountering.
When you copy and paste the TWO studies that show nizoral SHAMPOO increases hair counts, and hair diameters, and shrinks sebaceous glands-----you’ll be met with evidence that some of nizoral’s ingredients (the soaps therein that suds on the scalp) are used in gargage cleaners and are toxic if left on the skin for herculean amounts of time.
You will also probably mention that women dont suffer from hairloss but rarely, and will get a response something like: “but why is there a women’s hairloss forum?”, completely ingnoring the fact that women’s hairloss is very rare, and is usually an autoimmune disorder called telogen effluvium anyway.
You will probably mention hairtransplants, and you will usualy get ignored outright, or face assertions that transplanted hair really doesn’t last all of your life and they too will begin to bald in ensuing decades due to the increased amount of shampoo they see.
You might bring up the recent study that piroctone olamine shampoos (a strong anti-oxidant that inhibits several inflammatory pathways, and also seems to reduce sebum—so its possibly somewhat anti-androgenic) apparently grow hair as well or even slightly better than Nizoral’s ketoconazole, and you will probably see the same arguments against the “other” ingredients in the shampoo.
You might attempt to assert that chimps, orangutans, boboboos, macaques, and other apes typically bald in the wild, and the same treatments for us (finasteride, minoxidil, latanaprost) work even better on them. You will be told a specific MITE is responsible for their baldness that we dont have (but doesn’t effect the rest of their fur).
You might attempt to tell them that castrates halt further baldness, and since this is commonly cited in medical literature, but so few of us actually KNOW a castrate, they will claim its a lie.
You might show them pictures of women who got testosterone injects who are now balding, and they will tell you that they shampoo their hair more vigorously now because its cut shorter and its the shampoo thats killing their hair, etc.
Dont let them/him spam up this forum with their bulllshiiiittt please.
