Can Nizoral Shampoo Prevent Hair Loss?
There are countless remedies for hair loss, and some work better than others. One of the most common treatments for a thinning or receding hairline is Nizoral shampoo. Nizoral is a shampoo designed to fight dandruff, hair loss, and other adverse scalp conditions. It contains the active ingredient ketoconazole, which promotes hair growth. It is often one of the first solutions people suffering from hair loss look to, but does it work?
Nizoral for hair loss is a beneficial choice for many people. Most shampoos contain one to two percent ketoconazole, depending on the severity of the subject’s hair loss. Nizoral contains one percent, which is adequate for most people. It regrows hair in a variety of ways: it cleans the scalp, kills fungus, and, most importantly, blocks androgen receptors. These factors all combine to reduce inflammation in the scalp and prevent further loss of hair.
Reducing inflammation is very important in the prevention of hair loss. Even if genetic factors cause your hair loss, inflammation will be present in your scalp. This tingling causes itching, which accelerates the hair loss process.
Although Nizoral is effective, it does have side effects and drawbacks for many people. It has to be absorbed into the scalp, so users have to apply it daily and wait five minutes for maximum absorption. In some cases, this will cause skin irritation or rashes on the scalp, and the nature of the shampoo means that users have to be constantly vigilant and avoid missing an application.
Although Nizoral has been shown to work, it is not a cure-all. Hair loss is a genetic condition for many, and a healthier scalp will only slow the hair loss process. Also, many people may be unwilling or unable to keep up with the strict application schedule a hair loss shampoo requires. Still, others may experience irritation from the shampoo.
For these people, an alternative is needed. Scalp micropigmentation is a sophisticated pigmentation process on the scalp which can either fill in thinning hair or mimic the look of a freshly shaven scalp. It’s a one-time permanent process which is indistinguishable from real hair.
