    Can Spiro/S5 Cream Cause Shedding??

    Hey guys just started S5 Cream two days ago, it's my fourth application and just curious, can Sprio/S5 Cream cause shedding in the starting of treatment, I may be seeing things or over analyzing but I had many new hairs coming in from dut and after adding Spiro they are gone?? Spiro is suppose to help stop shedding right, can spiro have a shedding phase? or could this maybe just be a dut shed? i've been on dut for one month.

    No one really sees any results from Spiro, but theoretically it should. Spiro looks good on paper, but I never really hear any + results from it. If whatever is said should happen actually happens then you should experience some hair shed so smaller hairs are replaced by larger ones.

    thanks ripple, I'm actually using both Spiro and Dut together as my regime along with Nizoral 2% keto. I heard Spiro isn't much good on it's own as it is kinda weak? I only bought one jar, should I buy another after this?? As you said it looks good on paper, but I have no idea whether the spiro is doing anything or if it's just the dut alone..

    Maybe my money is better spent on something else, any opinions?

    Actually I've decided that I'm going to stick it out with topical Spiro, I like how it feels on the hairline like a cooling less dry, no flakes and the fact that there is caffeine in this product, I've read good things about caffeine. My current regime now consists of Dutasteride 0.5mg once daily, Topical Spiro day/night, Nizoral 2% every third day, Revivogen Shampoo/Conditioner EOD (I don't feel I need Revivogen everyday as shampoo/conditioner can strip your hair of natural oils beneficial for hair growth) and Rogaine 5% liquid day/night. So far after one month I'm starting to see lots of new growth, but I have only been receding for 4-5 years (NW3) and I have a decent chance to regrow some if not most of my hair, I hope to regrow back to a NW2 which doesn't seem all that bad, you can still look good with a NW2 hairline.

    How is your hairloss routine working for you Mr_Reeses, did you stick with spiro also did you get any regrowth? Did you take propecia before dut? I am thinking of switching to dut after over 14 yrs on propecia i am loosing ground. thanks
