The Best Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo
When it comes to shampoos meant for hair loss prevention, there is one overriding ingredient you have to make sure it has before you even start thinking about buying it.
That ingredient is Ketoconazole.
All other ingredients in the shampoo are negligible compared to Ketoconazole, as this is the ONLY ingredient in hair loss prevention shampoos that can actually combat DHT directly.
In terms of covering your bases in all aspects in your fight against hair loss, there are 3 products that are known as “The Big 3” which will be the only products you really need to concern yourself with.
Anything else on the market over the counter that is not in The Big 3 is 99.9% a snake oil product that will do absolutely nothing to prevent DHT from wreaking havoc on your scalp.
Ketoconazole shampoo is part of the big 3 (Finasteride and/or RU58841 + Minoxidil + Ketoconazole shampoo).
These three products in combination will be your absolute best line of defence against hair loss, and I wouldn’t recommend anything else other than these products at the moment to be honest.
They work synergistically to maximize your ability to keep a full thick head of hair.
In regards to which hair loss prevention shampoo is the best, I continuously go back to the same Ketoconazole shampoos as I believe there are 2 that are the best bang for your buck.
‘Nizoral' Anti-Dandruff Shampoo Or ‘Intelligent' Super Volumizing Shampoo
This shampoo should be applied each time you wash your hair and rubbed into your scalp and then left there for about 10 minutes before washing it out.
It is just a normal anti-dandruff shampoo, however, it contains Ketoconazole, which is a powerful antifungal that removes the buildup of DHT in the hair follicles.
It works very well and I use it alongside my RU58841.
The two best Ketoconazole shampoos in my opinion are Nizoral and Intelligent.
The difference between them being that Intelligent has a variety of other ingredients in it that simply make it a higher quality shampoo, and it doesn’t dry your hair out like Nizoral potentially could.
However, Nizoral is quite a bit cheaper, so you can alternate between Nizoral and Intelligent to save money.
If Nizoral doesn’t dry out your hair, just stick with that as it is cheaper and has the same amount of Ketoconazole in it anyways (the ingredient you want).
You can get Nizoral here: Nizoral Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
And Intelligent Shampoo here: Intelligent Super Volumizing Shampoo
I highly recommend using a Ketoconazole Shampoo if you are concerned about preventing hair loss in any capacity.
