    Default Spectral DNC: Is it worth it? Anyone had success with it?

    Hey guys,

    Im considering giving Spectral DNC a try...

    Has anyone used it and had some kind of positive results?

    Used way back in the day...actually it was the first topical or hairloss treatment I ever bought and used. I thought the product was great when it first came out. However, it starting losing effectiveness after they changed the formula 100 times. Results followed suit, especially with others after DS labs changed it.

    Since I never knew what batch I was going to get and my hairline still kicking back, I decided to start and still am on the FDA approved Rogaine foam. I personally don't think the new Spectral will do much. All you need is the Minox, all the other ingredients are useless fillers that have numerous claims of treating hairloss.

    My opinion, stick to rogaine. The yellow residue Spectral will leave is annoying, embarrassing, and makes your hair look like crap. So AM treatments would be out of the question.

    I have been using Spectral DNC since Feb 2009. But now gradually moving to Rogaine foam.

    That stuff is terrible the way it is now. It leave a nasty residual, it smells werid, and it weight down the hair, making your hair look worse.

    It did give me some improvement, but on its own it couldn't stop the loss which is why I went on to the Fin,Min and Niz combo.

    I have been using generic 5% minoxidil over a year now, and avodart for 4 months...

    The main thing I was hoping from the Spectral DNC was for it to produce better results (since they claim that it works even for people who didnt respond to rogaine).
    I was also hoping for it to be a bit more gentle on the skin (since both the foam and liquid minoxidil make my scalp dry and itchy, although its bearable: I can live with it)...

    Thank you guys, I will definitely take both your advise on board

    Are you also using Nizoral Shampoo? I found that helped me with the itching and dandruff caused by minoxil.

    No. The efficacy of the extra ingredients in their products is questionable at best. You are just as well off with generic liquid Minoxidil from your local pharmacy.

    I used a few bottles of it never noticed anything positive. Imma try a few bottles of lipogaine seems like a decent formula and mostly positive reviews.
