Okay thank you bro, will 70% ethyl rubbing alcohol work ?
Yes, that's what i use and what Joe strictly recommends.
And do I open the capsules, or let them dissolve in the water ?
sorry for asking so many questions, but I wanna get this right
@worm what do u think about me using your new recipe and still adding the b6, do u think it could be better, I’m thinking about trying it
Long time lurker.
Decided to give this a shot, ordered zinc capsules and distilled water, do I need ethyl alcohol as well? Looked at Joe's site and he has not mentioned it at all for original zix. I am currently using Castor oil, not sure if it is working or not.
I am optimistic about this, he is not making money from it, so can't be a scam. If zix doesn't work, will use topical finasteride.
What I don't understand however is why not everybody is going on about this if it works so well?
Because nobody believes that there's a way to fix hairloss that's "natural". Kinda feel the same way too, I don't think Zix is as good as propecia but if you can't take propecia due to sides then you better get on something like Zix.
The only reason why I am jumping onto this before topical finasteride is to avoid any sides. I am surprised more people are not giving this a first shot.
I think most people did when they tried Revivogen which was very similar. However, Revivogen never really proved to be as popular as minoxidil and finasteride.
You tried it too - did it work?
I think it might have worked better than I thought but it was too smelly and messy to want to use. If they had a foam version that was odorless and colorless I would still be using it. I still go back and forth wanting to give it a try but its just too messy to deal with. It stains your pillow case too.
Good to hear, optimistic about ZIX
It's not finasteride. I responded super well on it, but experienced sides galore, which I still managed to live with. Having stopped by accident, I couldn't justify going back on it.
But with respect to those who don't want to go the finasteride route, I wonder why so many are so skeptical to try this. It's worked wonders for me for almost 14 years. Now with the success I've been having with zinc alone, it's basically a $6-7 investment that could supply you with a year's worth of treatment. If it doesn't work so be it, but it costs basically nothing to try.
Yes you open and dump the contents into the container.
That's why I think its promising, a lot of scam products sell for 50 bucks and are heavily marketed
You can try without alcohol, I suspect it'll still work pretty well. I think the alcohol helps with absorption.
I don't think everyone has success, but the people who seem to respond tend to never update. They come, ask lots of questions and say they see good things early but basically disappear and leave no further updates. Id like to think they are doing well, but are too laze to let us know. who knows though....
Thought I answered this. I'd try zinc for a month, then add b6. See how you respond to different versions of the formula.
Any updates on your results with just Zinc, or add ins of anything else?
What if we add taurine to the zinc sulphate??
no updates to report - tbh ive been running around and only been home 2 days in the past 10-11 days due to the holidays. everything seemed stable, although i upped my concentration to 5 zinc. I havent had a real opportunity to assess the effectiveness.on saturday, i noticed i had a couple extra hair come out when i tried to style my hair, but could just be a coincidence.
It took 3 weeks to notice the zinc alone was helping a little more than my zix, I suspect i should do the same with 5 zinc concentration before I jump to any conclusions.
@Aethas I have no clue about adding taurine or caffeine or anything much for that matter - except magnesium and azelaic acid, which didnt work. My experience tends to lean towards using less additives. But it could be that the combined effect of zinc and something else could make the solution more effective - I wont know it until i see it. Im also not totally sold on zinc alone, but i seem to still be shedding less more than a month on now.
So my advice is start with zinc alone, then after a month add b6, a month later, add something else if you feel like tinkering. But the kitchen sink method may have you miss something that would be effective on it's own, but ineffective in combination with something else.
