    Let's say I don't want to use finasteride, due to personal reasons.
    And at second, if you have to make a choice between Minxodili 2% and Nizoral (2% Ketoconazole) and Dr Regenepure (1% Ketoconazole).
    If you have to pick only 1 of these, which one would you pick? and why?

    Edit: want to target/reduce/stop male pattern baldness, without using finasteride/dutasteride

    Ketoconazole is too weak of an antiandrogen and doesn't stay on the scalp long enough to help for hair loss, and minoxidil is a growth stimulant, it won't treat the cause of male pattern baldness. It might work in the short term but eventually minoxidil will not be effective without an antiandrogen, at least for most people

    Applying topical Minoxidil 5% + Finasteride 0.1% from last 2 years & I got new hair also but top back head hair density is less yet & never grow miniaturized hair. Minoxidil is better to use than Ketoconazole from my experience.

    Why would you choose only one? Just go for both. minoxidil 5 and keto 2%. Use shampoo only 2/3 times a week. That won't ruin your life. And a bottle lasts months.
    People often have problem when using minoxidil: like irritation, sebum... keto is a must to keep the scalp clean and get the most ouf of minoxidil
