    Hello guys,
    I'm planning to use minoxidil twice a day, but I was wondering to know which solution would work better....
    Currently Minoxidil kirkland, Rogain and Spectral DNC (nanoxidil) are popular but Kirkland is way cheaper and Nanoxidil is wayyy more expensive.
    I really doubt which product I should start using... Do you have any suggestions?

    Appreciate it...

    Should not really matter as everything that contains 5% minoxidil should work the same.
    The only difference is probably the absorption rate, because you can get minoxidil in foam and liquid versions.

    And because there is a lot of minoxidil makers, they try to differentiate one from another. Hence, you can get minoxidil solutions that also contain other ingredients like saw palmetto, beta sitosterol, zinc, azelaic acid, copper peptides etc. However, the only approved ingredient is minixodil nothing else.

    I personally use Lipogaine, which is 25 bucks a bottle (1 month) just to give me that extra piece of mind, cause it contains more than just plain minoxidil. Nobody knows whether it works better than ordinary Kirkland that cost 50 bucks for 6 months.

    Thus, my advice to you is:

    1. If you do not mind spending 25-30 bucks a month on Minoxidil, then go for minoxidil that is contains other beneficial, yet not proven ingredients, there is even a 6% minoxidil that contains finasteride (Minoxidilmax) or Lipogaine

    2. If you are on a budget than the answer is obvious, Kirkland

    3. I would not use DNC as the company had some financial issues, they changed their formulations far too many times. And to be honest, I doubt that their nanoxidil is an equivalent to a good old minoxidil. I do like and use their shampoo, though (Revita), which again is not as good as it used to be :/, the new version dried my hair so much, had to use olive oil and pricey hair conditioners for 2 months to moisturize my hair. Now, I just use it 1-2 a week with conditioners and it is alright

    Hope this helps :)

    Thanks a lot for your time and nice comments.
    I think Lipogaine does not contain finasteride? So do you prefer minoxidilmax or lipogaine withougt considering the price?

    No lipogaine does not contain finasteride, but other minoxidil solutions sold over minoxidilmax do. I have been using lipogaine for the last 2 years and cannot complain. However, the recent batch I received seems different, pale yellow instead of dark yellow. Trying to find out why...

    I would still recommend Lipogaine. Different colour may not mean anything, perhaps it only contains less saw palmetto, which would do jack shite anyways..
    If you have any other qs, I am more than happy to help.

    I truly appreciate it !
    I'm personally not interested to take any finasteride pills as they play with hormons ! But I'm ok with the minoxidil even if contains finasteride!
    I had doubt to pick either kirkland or rogaine but I would go with Lipogaine since it looks working better.
    Do you have any other suggestions? Like any vitamins? I was told to take Nourkrin for 6 months period but I didn't find good reviews of this product!

    Thanks again

    Vitamins B-complex is probably all that you need :) particularly biotin and B6.

    Spectral DNC is more effective I think.
    I used it for 2 years before some regularities about cosmetics products in my country.
    Spectral DNC has became more expensive than Minoxil. Eventually I had to change my cure.
