Many thanks in advance

Hello,

Kirkland Signature Minoxidil is just generic Minoxidil. Why not just buy generic Minoxidil at your local pharmacy? That way you will know it's genuine.

You should consider the foam Product mate - much easy to apply and on all accounts more effective.

Been buying Kirkland's Minox for many many years on ebay. I know it's legit because when I stop using it my hair starts falling within a month or so.

Tracy I need your advice.

I've been using kirkland 5% minoxidil for almost a month now. I've been using Nizoral one to twice a week for a few weeks now as well.

It seems like this product leaves my scalp with hard to remove flakes if you know what I mean? By googling 'minoxidil dandruff' I've found that this happens to a lot of people because of the alcohol in the product. I don't have an itchy scalp or anything like that though. My question is will this flaking potentially inhibit new hair growth?? Should I use nizoral everyday until this problem seems to be taken care of?

Should I use an organic conditioner after using the nizoral? I've heard conditioner isn't good for the scalp but on the same token I've heard that nizoral can excessively dry your scalp if you use it everyday.

On another note it looks like I've been shedding a lot recently. Many many small hairs have fallen out the past few days. I'm guessing about 200 tiny little hairs fell out today when I took a shower today. Many of the hairs looked like they were 1-2 cm. The strange thing is that it still looks like I have a full head of hair. Hopefully when those hairs grown in I'll be back to 'NW1'.

Hello,

You should not use Nizoral more than twice a week.

If you are having a problem with liquid Minoxidil, try Rogaine foam.
