Listerine mouthwash for hair

Listerine mouthwash for hair

Post  Jdp710 on Tue Oct 23, 2018 8:18 am

Have been getting updates from a woman using listerine for two years. †Original use was to combat dandruff but has side benefit of combatting hair loss and thinning. †Have tried it a couple times over past six months and didnít find as much benefit as white vinegar in the shower and so I never mentioned experiment

However recent experiments show it may be superior to white vinegar when itís applied throughout entire hair and not just scalp. And thatís the trick and maybe trick for these anti microbial topicals.

Downside is there is not benefit for preventing gray hair like white vinegar. †Smell is very strong so needs thorough washing in shower compared to white vinegar. †

Using original listerine which is orange and about once per week vs white vinegar which is about 5-6 times a week. †

Hope this helps

Jdp,

Do you think plaque like what gets on our teeth can actually accumulate underneath the scalp? I'm starting to believe this is more of what we are dealing with than simply DHT and scalp tightness.

Hi JDP,

What is the mechanism of action or suspected mechanism of action of white vinegar in relation to hair greying?

Hi serge, †experiment shows not just benefit of listerine but that these antimicrobial topicals need to be applied in the hair strands themselves than just scalp only for greatest benefit.

Iím actually surprised dht is still discussed on the internet. †In my experience dht inhibition is only moderately effective at expense of side effects. †The most effective methods for health or hair loss get little attention in my experience. †

Karma is biggest stumbling block for most I think. †Most people literally canít be reached and just keep following average methods and thus get average results not just for hair loss but also health. †

Hi cf, †

Not sure on mechanism but apple cider vinegar has been used successfully for gray hair. †Just type this in google for info. Apple cider vinegar gray hair

I †find canít keep up with use because of smell but long term use with white vinegar instead has shown it also works for me without the smell problem.

White vinegar? †I thought apple cider vinegar was the go-to vinegar for hair?

Can you substitute isopropyl alcohol for the Listerine? Listerine is more than just alcohol. It contains eucalyptol, menthol, methyl salicylate and thymol; so I understand if not.
