I just use a Dove for men thickening shampoo on the days I don't Nizoral. I leave it on for a minute or two then wash. When I'm using Nizoral I leave it on for 5 mins then rinse. I don't use any conditioner and I shower twice a day. I read you were using Belgravia centre high strength minoxidil? Are you still using that? Best to keep using what you were using I just use the foam for quickness but I think solution is the better way but I don't have the time in mornings for it to dry and things. Give the routine at least 6 months and then look back at the pictures and see what the improvement is like. Some people need wait a year before they improve, I was just lucky I guess it happened quickly for me (although I'm shedding constantly now).
