    5 month results w/Miconazole Nitrate + Minoxidil - photos

    In the spirit of sharing knowledge, here's a quick-look into an ongoing Minoxidil + Miconazole Nitrate experiment going on in other areas of the universe. There's a huge thread over at regrowth with more participants and particulars on this subject if anyone's interested.

    In brief: Hair growth on my ongoing minoxidil-treated-hairline became stagnant (after 2 years) and started picking up anew after beginning treatment with Miconazole Nitrate. Applications to my crown area began right after. I do not take internals.

    Following are scalp shots for any miniaturization study. I tried updating the animated composite with the 3rd progress photo, but I couldn't line up any follicle landmarks. Nothing matches anymore. Goes to show how much your hair growth matrix will change in 5-months.

    Current - March 22





    This is how I use it.

    Tablespoon of hot water + A squeeze of the 4% cream + 60 drops of 5% Minox into a syringe.



    Shaken for 20 seconds



    Dot scalp.



    Rub it all in.



    Go to bed.

    I'm planning on maximizing all this by adding topical dutasteride and ketoconazole. For questions regarding this, find it over at regrowth. I'm not about to parse the info and post it all over again. But things should be getting interesting in the months to come.

    Cheers.

    Looking good! Thanks for actually taking the time to take detailed photos. What 4% cream are you using and where do you get it?

    Common drug store brand of 4% vag creme (Duane Reade).

    Any 4% cream should work.

    Caveat: I don't use Miconazole applications daily out of concerns for too much systemic nitrates absorption. It was 5X a week at most on the crown and hairline only. One gal on a haircare related forum reported alarming nitrate levels after a routine lab workup. She did use a large quantity of it on her scalp twice a day however.

    When I introduce ketoconazole cream + topical dutasteride into my regimen, I'll be dialing the Miconazole down to 2X week.

    From regrowth:

    "Rogazzle said:

    My regimen for the long-term until a better solution comes along will be:

    3X a week at night ------ Keto mixed with Minox 5% + topical Dut 25mg.

    2X a week at night ------ Mico mixed with Minox 5% + topical Dut 25mg.

    2X a week at night ------ Minox.

    7X a week mornings ------ Minox at the hairline only."

    Will also be adding folligen copper peps to the mix at night on one temple, azelaic acid on the other. Want to test if it kicks those vellus hairs into a higher + HIGHER gear. I have no doubt that the keto + dutasteride additions will help, so there is no need to partition application areas to test those specifically.

    The only forward change I can think of is to replace topical dut with RU58841 or the new CB-03-01 given both look more aggressive than dutasteride because they bind with androgen receptors and blockade DHT directly.

    The issue however is cost, reliable sourcing, unknown safety (and now of recent, unknown efficacy)

    The other change; if the copper peptides work, then I may switch the minox + copper peptides over to Spectral DNC given that's what Spectral DNC basically is; saving me an extra step when mixing solutions, but, upping the monthly costs a bit."

    Here's a hint: The new growth was nonexistent or too short to sweep back with the hand. Baseline hair was approx 5" at the time.

    Here's an animated gif for your troubles seeing this.



    Some other before and afters.

    7 week comparison from the beginning of the experiment.

    Another telling sign of definitive growth is the hairs tapered ends. They where never clipped with scissors.

    Rogazzle,

    Those are very promissing photos. Good camera work too. Think I will rub some of the coochie cream on my hairline now.
    Do you make a new solution for each application or can it be stored in refrigerator?

    Rogazzle,
    I'm reading the mega thread on hairloss. In Jan you were using Clotrimazole 2%. When did you change to Miconazole Nitrate? Please explain.
    Thanks!

    This excerpt from page 69 should clear that up.

    "......Applications to my crown area began right after.

    I then switched all this to Clotrimazole a month later purely out of concern for too much long term Nitrates absorption (possible nitrites carcinogenesis). Being an imidazole based antifungal, Clotrimazole seemed to have similar results. A month later I started questioning Clotrimazole given it doesn't have any of the capillary vasodilation effects that Miconazole Nitrate has (Nitrate is a vasodilator). So I started alternating between Miconazole and Clotrimazole just to be sure I wasn't losing any gains. Did Clotrimazole really add to my hairline? I'm honestly not sure now. It should be noted that Miconazole and Clotrimazole doesn't have any of the androgen receptor binding activity that Ketoconazole has. That said, Miconazole is the more logical choice between Clotrimazole & Miconazole."

    Cheers.
