PROCERIN XT is a foam that is applied to the scalp. For me this product was suppose to have been the most important one for  my treatment of hair loss. This was because my research showed that it is highly recommended to have some product that blocks, inhabits, and reduces DHT and that can stop  hair loss on some level. Moreover, it is important to take into consideration that if you concentrate only on promoting growth with products such as Minoxidil 5% and Caffeine Shampoo you will finally become bald because you are not reducing the damage on your hair follicles.

Besides PROCERIN XT the company also markets pills which are a natural substitute to Finasteride (which is known for to have adverse side effects).  According to the company a use of both PROCERIN TABLETS and PROCERIN XT creates a synergy for the treatment.  However, I have decided to avoid taking pills at all cost.

One of many

If we look at the ingredients, the most important ones in this product are the  Azelaic Acid and Saw Palmetto. It is also worth noting that the role of most of the other components is to create and encourage natural encourage growth.

It is also worth taking into consideration that on the market there are dozens of similar products with, more or less, the same ingredients.  However, it is hard to tell which of these products  is the best because there is no way of telling what the concentration of each substance is in any product. Therefore, as a rule of thumb, I picked out a product that I found with some authentic reviews on some of the online Forums.  In addition, whenever I will find any similar products with a better price and better reviews I will not hesitate to replace it and report on this site which products those are.

products are pretty much the same.

You can read about my personal experience with the product on my blog.

  1. hey simon can you explain why you stopped using Procerin XT? how did you realize it wasn’t helping? I was thinking of adding it to my treatment (which is only rogaine foam at the moment)

    • Hello
      As I said in my post “Good bye Procerin” there were several things I found hard to look over. This is not so much regarding the efficiency of the product but rather to what I could get in its place: First of all, for the price of a 2 ounce bottle of Procerin, you could get 4 ounces of a different product (60 ml instead of 30). I initially assumed that it’s just something you need to apply less of, but now it seems unlikely to me that it works with such a small amount (my own personal opinion). I kept buying a 3 month supply and it always lasted much less. Second of all, this is the only product I use that has no expiration date and it should has. Lastly, I rely heavily on Azelaic acid as a necessary component in my treatment, a lot more than other DHT blocking agents. There are competing products to Procerin Foam that have a 5% concentration of the acid, in Procerin however, there is no way of knowing how much is in a bottle.
      As you can see it’s not that I’m questioning the product and its effectiveness, I’m still going to take it this month and finish my supply. I just think there are cheaper, just as good if not better alternatives out there. I made a decision to try out a different product, probably one with similar ingredients and could provide an external and natural alternative to Propecia.
      Don’t take from this that I’m trying to steer you away from Procerin, it’s basicly a good product, otherwise it wouldn’t sell so well around the world, I just made my own personal decision about it and I’ll start taking something else next month.
