    Update: Hair still looks horribly thin and I shed even a little bit more (Minoxidil involved?)

    Use conditioner. I have the same problem with dry hair with regenepure ( 1% keto ), but my itch is much better so I think it’s helpful.

    Be careful with keto shampoos. At first it was great. The first application felt amazing on my inflamed scalp and made my hair instantly thicker. After using it 3 times a week I got somewhat dependant on it and went to every other day. After 3 or 4 months I was definitely shedding a lot more hair and my scalp was really dry. My advice is to use it sparingly once or twice a week and find a nice mild shampoo to use on the off days.

    Where do you get this from? Obviously, this sounds a bit at odds with what a lot of people are saying.

    Same as others, I tried 1%. No shedding that I noticed, but my hairline just melted away. Stopped it.

    That happened to me, frontal forelock thinned out after 3-4 washes.

    Yeah, but I'm still using it every 3 days. I shed less than when I first used it, I even managed to regrow some hair lol (I would call it a miracle) and my hair is actually thicker (not much but I definitely saw some progress there)

    So do you think keto helped you or not?

    Are you sure it is not a placebo effect, always found with keto hair looked cosmetically thicker after washing

    Actually I was wrong, my hairline is still thin but thicker than the first time I used keto. But I'm 100 % sure that I regrew hair and I'm not talking about some vellus mini hair
