0:15 One of the most common questions I get asked these days is "So Marc, what is the best shampoo out there that I can use right now to treat my hair loss?"
0:42 I've found that the best and most effective hair loss shampoos have the ingredient "ketoconazole" in it -- this ketoconazole is an agent that blocks the synthesis of DHT (or dihydrotestosterone) in the scalp that causes male & female pattern baldness. Studies suggest that ketoconazole shampoo, when used either alone or in combination with other treatments can be effective in reducing hair loss, preventing or slowing androgenic alopecia.
1:36 Ketoconazole was in fact, first and originally used as an anti-fungal medication to treat fungal infections of the skin, such as athlete's foot and ringworm, amongst others. Scientists have even found that ketoconazole, when topically applied, was as or more effective than the famous 2 percent-grade minoxidil at combating androgenic alopecia.
2:18 To date, there are only a few mainstreams shampoos that contain ketoconazole. The most famous and well-known one is of course, Nizoral shampoo. Nizoral is usually marketed as an antifungal shampoo for people with dandruff. Now apart from being an antifungal shampoo, Nizoral also comes with androgen blocking properties. This makes it an effective anti-inflammatory agent for hair loss sufferers.
2:55 Understand that the root cause of thinning hair is a sensitivity to the hormone levels in your body. Therefore Anti-androgens work to block or inhibit hormone (androgen) activity in your scalp.
3:11 In this case, Nizoral is acting as the "anti-androgen". And while Anti-androgens block the hormonal activity in your scalp, Anti-inflammatories play an incredibly important role in calming the *environment* of your scalp. This is imperative for the two treatments to work effectively (as in both anti-androgen and anti-inflamation). Inflammation is an extremely common biproduct of thinning hair, and can literally double the speed at which you lose hair.
3:50 And this "inflammation" can come in the form of itching, tingling, intense irritation and even pain in your scalp. Calming that inflammation is probably the most important aspect of hair loss treatment.
4:42 Ketoconazole, while moderately to extremely effective at preventing androgen-related hair loss, is often quite harsh on the scalp. Nizoral is effective, but unfortunately, it does not contain anti-inflammatory ingredients
5:20 Most guys who use Nizoral (and especially the 2% strength Nizoral) report having dry scalp or non-dandruff flakes.
5:56 It also because of side effects like these that turn me off from using any form of 'chemical" to treat hair loss.
6:05 So yeah sure, Nizoral works, finasteride, propecia, monixidil, all these have been proven to treat hair loss, but even if they do work, so what? Are all the side effects that comes together with it worth it? Hell no! What's the point!
6:36 If you're looking for an alternative treatment that is just as effective and one that is 100% all-natural, pure herbal based and chemical-free with ZERO side effects, then just head on over to BaldingSerum.com
That's all for now!
