aloe vera keto shampoo hair growth

What did he try? Aloe Vera (Barbadensis Miller) + Ketoconazole shampoo 2%
Hair loss symptom: Androgenic Alopecia – diffused thinning


I found this success story from the hairlosstalk forum. I decided to post this story here, because the treatment he used can be easily found and above all, doesn’t cost much.

To sum it up, he experienced hair regrowth after applying aloe vera gel once a day and washing his hair with 2% ketoconazole shampoo three times a week. Unfortunately, some of the photos he originally posted are no longer available on the forum. However, based on reading the rest of the replies posted and their reactions to the photos, I believe the progress of his hair regrowth was very noticeable.

Aloe Vera

For Aloe Vera, he used the actual gel from Aloe Vera plants. Certain grocery stores sell Aloe Vera by the leaf. If you can’t find it at your local store, you can also buy whole aloe plants from places like Home Depot. Cut the leaf into smaller pieces (1-2 inches) using a sharp knife and keep them in the refrigerator. Worse case, you can buy pure aloe gel products, but they may not have the main active ingredient that helped him grow his hair back. He applied the gel before he went to bed each night and washed his hair in the morning.

Ketoconazole 2% Shampoo

Ketoconazole is a medical ingredient that prevents the growth of fungal cells. It is an FDA-approved medication and depending on the dosage, you can either get it from over the counter or by prescription (if you need stronger dosages).

In his case, he used a keto 2% shampoo three times a week. A variety of brands offer shampoo with ketoconazole. A popular brand that everyone is probably familiar with is the Nizoral shampoo. The over the counter (OTC) version of Nizoral contains 1% of Ketoconazole.

Another Ketoconazole shampoo brand I know is Renepure NT. The Renepure NT shampoo is a more natural version of Nizoral shampoo. They removed harsh chemicals from the formula including SLS (the Nizoral shampoo listed SLS as the third ingredient). Also, they added other hair growth compounds such as caffeine, saw palmetto extract, niacin, and lecithin.

2 Other Success Stories with Aloe Vera:


YES on treating general hair loss: In the same thread, another guy shared a separate success story with Aloe Vera. He started losing hair in his early 20 starting in his temple area. His attempts trying various treatments (Minoxidil, etc.) didn’t do much to control his shedding hair. But when he tried the aloe vera gel on his scalp for about two months, he noticed decent hair growth approximating 10-15%.

YES on treating Alopecia Areata: In this forum, he talks about how Aloe Vera has helped him to regrow hair in his bald spots. After applying the Aloe gel to the affected areas for five to six months, he said that fine hairs were filling in those spots.

Have you tried Aloe Vera or a combination of both to promote hair growth?
