I’ve been experiencing hair loss recently and my friend recommended Nioxin shampoo. Not sure what the active ingredient is yet, but it is supposed to remove DHT specifically from the scalp. It is over the counter so it can’t be too strong; have any of you ever heard of it?
From what I’ve read on hair loss forums, Nioxin is useless for hair loss. I have some, and it makes my hair fuller and puffier, but I don’t think it’s helping me shed less. I use it for a week or two after a hair cut — any longer and it makes my already-wavy hair too…bumpy.
Mvrag doesn’t think much of it either: mravg - Rogaine
