Just an update, I just stopped using conditioner every day. I'm reading different posts
about it. I thought it was alright for daily usage, but now I'm not so sure.

Some of them say you should only do it as much as shampooing, although I know shampoo
temporarily makes hair strands thinner.

I only shampoo twice a week, with nizoral left in for a few minutes and condition it out.

The rest of the week I just wash it through with water, and rinse it as I wash the rest of me.

I use baby shampoo daily

I've been somewhat less consistent with my use of nizoral although I still use it ~2x a week, massaging it into the scalp and letting it sit for ~10 min, then rinsing it out and conditioning. I've become less convinced that it does anything directly for male pattern baldness, apart from maybe helping promote an overall healthy scalp environment and maybe countering any potential negative effects of prolonged minoxidil use

So right now i've updated my routine to using 2% keto shampoo EOD or on days i workout/sweat a lot, and using adenosine shampoo (adenovital) on the "off" days. My new conditioner is the Paul Mitchell anti-thinning conditioner. I only got that conditioner because i intended on getting the original tea tree one but it had peppermint which bugs my scalp. I'm hoping this new conditioner helps with scalp dryness, sebhorreic dermatitis, and makes my hair look better unlike the others. I'd rather spend an extra several bucks on stuff like this if it helps instead of using shit walmart conditioner

The adenovital shampoo might be a good shampoo but it doesn't contain any adenosine, adenosine is in their scalp treatment product which is part of the adenovital line.

are there any good conditioner that actually make your hair thicker or do all of them make your hair thinner and flat? that was the case with conditioner that I used and stopped using them. although none of them said thickening conditioner so maybe that was the reason, actually those were my mother's conditioners xD

The shampoo does have adenosine: https://www.pro.shiseido.com/en/product/ca-ad-shampoo

The "Hello Hydration" conditioner from herbal essences was good at making my hair fluffy, smooth, and non-dry. It kind of moisturized my scalp better than most, and its very cheap to get at least a liter of it (<$7). Used it for almost a year until now, even used it when i was traveling. If you're on a tight budget and don't know where to start, this one's alright i guess

The paul mitchell stuff i got smells really good to me though, kind of strong but i use it at night and the smell dies off in the morning.

Hi!
My hubby and I both get dry scalps in the winter time and normally use Head and Shoulders Dry Scalp Care Shampoo. However, I saw a shampoo in my local salon that looked good but cost a little more. It is called Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo and is supposed to be good for this kind of a thing. What I was wondering is has anyone tried this? And if you have is it good? We both have oily hair and are not color treated.

I've tried it. It did do a good job cleaning my hair. I actually do use it occasionally.

Even if you did have hair coloring, it wouldn't affect it.
