The keto in Nizoral grows hair for me, but niz is harsh on my hair.

Has anyone tried Dandrene? (by divine skin, the makers of Revita)

This shampoo also has 1% keto in it. RC

if nizoral is harsh for your hair then you can use Revita. i tried it, it was very gentle on the hair however i dint like how my hair look when i used it. i like how my hair look when i use nizoral 2% but if nizoral 1% is harsh for your hair then you will like Revita.

Thanks curer. Actually I tried Revita in the past, and was even growing some hair using it (light wispy hairs on hairline). But ultimatley I dropped it because it completely altered my hair texture and made it flat, squiggly, limp, and unruly. I had to use other shampoos for several days in a row to reverse the effects of Revita on my hair. Another problem with Revita is the caffeine - I'm very sensitive to caffeine and I know I absorb it because I can feel the effects if I leave the shampoo in too long.

I just ordered some Dandrene; if it doesn't work, I may work Revita in just once a week and leave it on for ~2 minutes, and use Niz the other 2 times/week. RC

Does Revita and Dandrene have the same effect as Nizoral? I know in a study with Niz 2%, they showed that upon like 6 months of use it did help regrow hair. Is this the case with Revita and Dandrene as well?

Both revita and dandrene have 1% keto.

Many have found a 1% concentration of keto sufficient for their needs. For eg, I use 1% (not 2%) nizoral and have regrown hair while using it.

Thus, I would expect revita and dandrene to have at least the same benefit for me as 1% nizoral. Revita and dandrene may be more effective because they contain other ingredients to attack inflammation and/or MPB from other angles.

I always underestimated the benefits of a shampoo, but am still shocked to have visibly regrown hair while using Nizoral (on 2 different occasions, I had stopped using Niz inb/t b/c it was harsh on my hair). If I can find a mild keto shampoo, I'll be content. Dandrene may do the trick. I'll report back once I receive and use it. RC

As a follow-up, Revita and Dandrene both contain 1% keto, and the study showing that keto fights MPB also used a 1% concentration, not a 2% concentration:

Nudging hair shedding by antidandruff shampoos. A comparison of 1% ketoconazole, 1% piroctone olamine and 1% zinc pyrithione formulations.

Abstract:
Synopsis: Hair shedding and hair thinning have been reported to be affected by dandruff and seborrhoeic dermatitis. The present study was conducted in 150 men presenting with telogen effluvium related to androgenic alopecia associated with dandruff. They were randomly allocated to three groups receiving each one of the three shampoos in the market containing either 1% ketoconazole (KTZ), 1% piroctone olamine (PTO) or 1% zinc pyrithione (ZPT). Shampoos had to be used 2-3 times a week for 6 months. Hair shedding during shampoo was evaluated semiquantitatively. Hair density on the vertex was evaluated on photographs using a Dermaphot. Trichograms were used for determining the anagen hair percentage and the mean proximal hair shaft diameter using computerized image analysis. The sebum excretion rate (SER, [mu]g cm-2 h-1) was also measured using a Sebumeter(R).

The three treatments cleared pruritus and dandruff rapidly. At end point, hair density was unchanged, although hair shedding was decreased (KTZ: -17.3%, PTO: -16.5%, ZPT: -10.1%) and the anagen hair percentage was increased (KTZ: 4.9%, PTO: 7.9%, ZPT: 6.8%). The effect on the mean hair shaft diameter was contrasted between the three groups of volunteers (KTZ: 5.4%, PTO: 7.7%, ZPT: -2.2%). In conclusion, telogen effluvium was controlled by KTZ, PTO and ZPT shampoos at 1% concentration. In addition, KTZ and PTO increased the mean hair shaft thickness while discretely decreasing the sebum output at the skin surface.

I'd like to use keto 3x/week, but Niz may be too harsh on my hair. I tried Dandrene, but the salicylic acid in Dandrene is too harsh on my *scalp* (although the shampoo is not so bad on my hair). I may just end up using Revita 1x/week for the keto benefits. I know that frequent use of revita leaves my hair limp, but if I use Niz 2x/week and Revita 1x/week, the Niz should take care of any residue left over by Revita.

I may use a salicylic acid Piroctone Olamine shampoo and/or Nano on my non-keto shampoo days. RC
