    @worm havent had great thickening results with the zinc. I have really aggressive hair loss. Do you think adding B6 would help with the DHT. And also I’m only 1 month and half with my Lipogaine usage again. Last time I used it took 3 months to see growth

    Well, I would ride it out to the 3 month mark if I were you. Are you spacing the zinc and minoxidil apart, morning and night?

    How is your shedding? How old are you and what Norwood?


    I sometimes wonder by not having b6 in my mixture, if i am foregoing the anti dht properties of zix. But concurrently I am seemingly shedding less. I may add b6 in a few weeks to gauge the difference.

    I having thinning in the crown and vertex @worm and I’m 25. I guess the shedding is normal not too much. I apply the zinc in the morning after about an hour I also apply a bit of Topix as well. If B6 helps with dht I think I should add that as well

    New to this thread. 21 y/o been aggressively balding (with miserable itchy, red, dandruff scalp) since first year of university, but buzzed it all down this year. Even buzzed, I'd prefer to slow the process and also improve the condition of my scalp. Nizoral totally failed me, leaving me with an even redder scalp and more hair loss in a single month that I'd had all three previous years. I'm a college student on a minimal budget, what would be the cheapest way for me to formulate and try zix?

    @Lavishous : Ebay, search for "zinc sulfate powder" ... and voilà! It's cheap.
    I tried, it didn't help at all for the itchy. I tried then with the same pills as the OP, same fail. Good luck.

    When i was applying the monohydrated form it was a bit itchy!! The hepta form is so much more soft to the scalp

    Hi worm,

    Long time lurker on this thread! So I've read the first few pages and the last few pages as well on this thread and it's pretty confusing.

    What exactly is your zix formulation? Earlier you said you were just doing 3- 50mg zinc capsules, but recently you're considering adding back the B6. So what's the ratio? How many B6 pils(and how many mg's per pill) and how many zinc pills pills? Amount of distilled water and alcohol?

    I've been using super zix 2 for a while but I don't think it's doing much so I wanted to switch over to your formula. Looking forward to your response !

    Thanks a million!!

    Why did you drop B6 in the first place? Is it just an experiment since you've been on the more traditional Zix for so long? I'm about to make another batch and I'll be adding B6 again.

    I only tried the traditional formula once, but personally it seemed more effective than the formulation without B6.

    yeah, it was an experiment. It's hard for me to tell what the difference is. Sometimes I barely shed, other days I shed more. I have receded a touch, but feel my crown looks better (hard to really tell what's happening which I guess is a good thing), and so Im considered adding back the B6, and think I will do so in the next batch.

    What is your experience between the two?

    Please read the 1st page for full instructions - it's 3 x220mgs zinc sulphate + 150 mgs of b6 p5p in 45 mls distilled water + 15mls ethyl alcohol 70%.

    Well regardless of whether or not B6 is in the formula, the hair definitely thickens up. Probably due more to the alcohol but Zinc could have a role in that too.

    I'll get back to you on which formula I prefer.

    It took me awhile to notice, but the B6 supplement you suggested on the first page is mainly composed of calcium.

    103 mg Calcium (tricalcium phosphate)
    20 mg B6 (p5p)

    Eliminating that extra calcium from the formula seems like a good idea for me so I'll be using this

    For the next batch.

    by no means do i claim to have the answers, those could definitely be better than my brand. I initially got that brand from Joe on his zix site, he has since changed the brand of b6 he uses. Yours looks like high quality b6.

    Please I encourage people to try different things, but if you start shedding etc, deviating from what I recommend, I will also say you're not following "my formula", so I cant endorse it at the same time. However if you find you're having even better results, we welcome the advice... :)

    Just wanted to emphasize that your current formula has seemed to work well for me. I'll give an update if I notice any difference with pure p5p... probably a month from now.
