Guys, can I ask your opinion, please. Existing threads devoted to Zix can’t be found, so I’ve decided to “rearm”.
Can anybody share their experience with Super Zix II – maybe someone even used it standalone before lasering and had any decent results? Or some of you, who don’t laser, use it now?

The question number two – more I’m concerned, the saw palmetto doesn’t give any sexual sides at all?

I had a thread called “SuperZix II after 3 1/2 months”, but it isn’t comming up anymore!

Anyway, yes… I used it by itself from like August 2007 to before my laser helmet, and I felt it was really effective. I used regular Super Zix -before the advent of the hairmuck- from something like end of 2005 to sometime in 2006, and I felt the same way, but I think the SuperZix II was a little better because I noticed much thicker hair pretty quickly.

I’ve said this forever, and I really think that Zix is the ONLY THING [besides my laser helmet] that has every helped me to do something positive to my hair. It think while I was using it, it really helped slow down the loss. I don’t know if it completely STOPPED IT, but it definitely stopped my shedding drastically, and it thickened my hair vs. thinned it out.

To be honest with you, I’ve used it so sparingly over the past six to eight months that it probably doesn’t “count” as me using it anymore. I should probably start back on it! What can I say… what the laser helmet has done to my hair blows the pants off of anything else, so I’ve become “less motivated” to do anything else -even though I arguably should, because I do want to do everything I possible can still. So, yeah… “laziness” would also be a word for it.

I’m interested in A&G and HGF, too, by the way, so after my hair transplant has “set in” a little bit, I’ll make some decisions about topicals, and I’m sure Zix will always be in the line-up somewhere, even if I’m not using it like I should.

Because of the anti-shedding properties that it seems to have for some of us -not all of us, but definitely some- I think anyone with shedding problems or that wants to slowly ween themselves of off minox should try Super Zix II.

I would never rely on just one topical, regardless of what is used. Especially if you’re looking for regrowth.

I used Zix by itself before. It slowed down my shedding tremendously but did not stop it. No regrowth experienced. I did stop using it once and I started shedding a lot of hair again so I went back on it.

I have used Zix on and off severa times. It ALWAYS stops my sheds. Even when I pull on my hair nothing comes out. BUT–here’s what I don’t get–after a few months (and still with zero shedding) my hair looks thinner. I wonder if it’s the drying effect of Zix making my hair ‘look’ thinner; I don’t know.

Seems strange though that something that stops sheds would make your air thinner.

I was just thinking something similar recently. There has to be a better way to deliver the beta-sitosterol. I was thinking DMI instead of alcohol. The result would be a little greasier so it wouldn’t be as cosmetic friendly though. Either that or I was thinking if we could figure out how to do a phospholipid deliver system like what PP is doing with hairgen. It isn’t nanosomal but research shows that the medium increases absorption by conditioning the skin with phospholipids.

Hey about the formula ?

1/2 ounce of ethyl alcohol, 3 B6 p5p pills, 1 220mg Zinc Sulfate pill, 10 ml’s of hairmuck (same thing as minomuck), a few drops of polysorbate 80, and then -and this is the only thing different- I add about 6-7 ml’s of DMI (about 5%). Then I just fill distilled water up to the 4oz. line in my bottle.

How many phills of Zinc do i need ?
I have a bottle of Zinc 50 MG (Equivalent to 220 mg of Zinc Sulfate Heptahydrate)

Thanks.

Where did you get the DMI from?
I managed to only get a free sample of it from a Pharm company,they weren’t willing to sell me it in any real quantity?

sells it but they always seem to be sold out of it.

I would like to figure out how to make a liposomal conditioned medium at home. I think that would be tops. It shouldn’t be too hard because you aren’t creating actual nanosomes just a type of liquid that conditions the scalp and increases absorption. This is what PP is doing with HairGen.

I’m surprised that’s what PP is doing with HairGen. There are quite a few companies out there that would make the product for them.

I tried regular Zix with ethyl alcohol for just over a year.(increasing the ingredients at one point).
It didn`t do a damn thing.ZERO.

Don`t know about it helping shedding because in over 20 years of slowly going bald,I`ve never once experienced excessive shedding.
