Subj: Short growth
My hair grows about 3/4 an inch a month but does not grow longer than 2.5 inches. Will this help me?
AskDocWeb: Sorry Short Growth, but we don't understand your post. Are you saying that your hair stops growing when it gets 2.5 inches long? We have not heard of a condition that would cause that.
Subj: Shampoo and conditioner seems to do the job
So I have a small amount of hair loss that's taken about 5 years to occur. It's about a quarter inch circle at the back of my head. The rest is still pretty thick. I started using Nisim 5 days ago. Its too early to say if the serum is working, but the shampoo and conditioner seems to do the job (after just one wash for me). I have long hair, and I would loose about 10 hairs or so when brushing. Its been almost a week and there's only 2 hairs on my brush. I'm going to take provillus supplements too and will try to report back on the results in a few months.
Subj: Using two products
I just purchased a 1 month supply of Nisim as well as Propecin. I went with these two products based on what I've read from a multitude of reviews. Could there be a downside to utilizing/starting both products at once? Concerned that if shedding occurs, it could "worsen" my case. Also, after shedding occurs, does that hair regrow?
AskDocWeb: When you say "Propecin" we don't know if you are talking about Propecia or Procerin. The major downside to starting and using two products at the same time is that if you experience a bad reaction to one of them, you will not know which one is causing it. For some men, going through an initial period of shedding is so traumatic that they discontinue using the hair loss product. Although shedding only occurs in a small percentage of users, there are reports of this happening with every hair loss product that we have looked at. There are mixed reports from those who continue use through the shedding phase about regrowing the hair that was shed, some regain it but others don't.
Subj: Can nisim restore hair?
Hi there I order a three pack nisim biofactor and i am not fully bald but i loss more haire from the front rapidely and my hair gets tin. What if i start to use a nisim before i become completely bald and can nisim restore my hair from the front of my head?
AskDocWeb: It does for some people, some start noticing results in four weeks but most take three or four months to see results. One clinical study concluded that Nisim has a stimulatory effect on hair growth for at least 8 out of 10 men with androgenic alopecia (balding).
Subj: Bald spots are gone
Nisim is the best. I have been trying procerin for 3 months and nisim shampoo and cond and extract all together for 60 days. I see the little hairs are coming out and I have a much thicker and fuller hair..all my bald spots are gone .. I am 26 years old and will use these product till I die .. love it.
Subj: Noticed increased hair fall
I bought nisim shampoo yesterday, I'm having normal hair loss, as I used to had long rebonded hair, but after 5 to 6 months of rebonding I noticed increased hair fall, I got a short hair cut, nd fall was controlled, now I have bought this shampoo so dat I can completely get rid of hair loss and can get my hair rebonded again.. Would it help me in this regard? and one thing more, I'm fearing if I get increased hair fall then present when I will discontinue use...is it like that?? Waiting for reply.
AskDocWeb: It is normal to loose a certain amount of hair but the Nisim shampoo should help minimize that loss. Once you have the hair loss under control you can safely discontinue use of Nisim's stimulating extract.
Subj: Help with itchy skin?
I just ordered nisim shampoo because of my hairloss and I wonder if will it help with itchy skin too(I have oily hair).
AskDocWeb: The company claims that it is extremely effective in helping with an itchy scalp but so far there are no comments about this one way or another so let us know.
Subj: Receding hairlines?
Does this work on receding hairlines? I'm running into a bunch of products that say although they may work, they don't on certain parts of the head and often that part is a receding hairline and the side of the head. I'm wondering if Nisim Biofactors is the same way? Also how you feel about Equate Hair Growth Treatment and Christopher Litmon's natural ways of regrowing hair such as through essential oils like henna oil and olive oil?
AskDocWeb: The Equate Hair Growth treatment appears to be one of the packaged versions of minoxidil. We don't have much faith in the oils applied topically but some people swear by them. If you have blonde hair be aware that the henna oil could darken it. The Nisim website says nothing about the hairline. However, one of the nice things about Nisim's NewHair Biofactors is that it comes with a money back guarantee so if it doesn't work at least you get your money back.
Subj: Considering Nisim shampoo & Provillus
I have tried HairGenesis for a few years and have not noticed enough of a change. I am considering Nisim shampoo & conditioner along with the Provillus tabs and extract. I don't like that the Nisim extract has a lot of parabens and you leave it in, unlike the shampoo and conditioner. Will there be a problem using both brands in the above manner. Thanks,
AskDocWeb: We are not aware of any problems with using them together and none have been reported in four years of feedback about these products.
Subj: Coconut oil and Nisim?
I am just starting use of the product Nisism because I have a widows peak that seems to be growing. My question is will massaging my scalp with coconut oil 30 min prior and then using Nisism as my shampoo help with preventing hair loss an possibly new growth?
AskDocWeb: Yes, coconut oil helps minimize protein loss during washing to keep each hair strand strong, which does minimize breakage and hair loss.
Subj: Great results
Hi Iv used Nisim for 1 year now - and noticed great results. you shed for about a month - maybe little more - I forgot - but I kept on with it. I noticed great results by month 6...for eg, growth and coverage, thin hair that shed were replaced by thicked one and Iv increased my hair count - I can actually gel my hair! - I use it with Propecia. I was taking propecia before the nisim and the nisim added more hair and assisted alot! - nisim is a great topical figher and the propecia a great internal fighter. Im ordering Trichotin now - natural product with androgen inhibitors and growth stimulants. rememeber - it a regime and you need to build it up slowly - u need a DHT blocker, an androgen inhibitor, and a growth stimulant!

Subj: Dioxane contamination?
Do the Nisim products claim to remove any dioxane contamination? I have used Nioxin for a while and I am concerned that the manufacturer will not confirm removal of this by-product.
AskDocWeb: We contacted Nisim about your question and they replied that they remove the 1,4-dioxane from their products. Because the names are so similar we want to be clear about this. Nisim removes the contaminant 1,4-dioxane from their products and Nioxin doesn't answer the question.
Subj: Nisim Biofactors?
Hi, I'm 26m, I have been using Mintop forte 5% for the past 2 months. Even though i notice less hairfall, My scalp is itching a lot and im worried about the side effects also. So, im thinking to go for Nisim Biofactors pack. Can u pls let me know if i can order it from india and also does nisim has any sexual side effects(Impotence, decrease in count or desire)...??
AskDocWeb: Nisim Biofactors has no sexual side effects. And yes, Nisim International ships worldwide.
What are the statistics for using the shampoo without the extract compared to with it?
AskDocWeb: It is the extract that maximizes the natural growth cycle of your hair. The shampoo is specifically formulated to work with and support the extract. The results of the Nisim clinical test of the extract: 85.7% of the participants had an increase in their terminal hairs of 30% or greater and 40.8% of the study group had an increase of 100% or greater (i.e. doubling or more).
I work for Nisim International. I just wanted to clarify a few points on our product. First the shampoo alone will control the hair loss and should do so in one week. If you use it for more than two weeks without success you should request a refund. Regarding the refund. We actually Guarantee the product with no time limit not 100 days. I think the 100 days refers to what Trac offers. If you dont order directly from nisim.com you should check with the retailer or website for their guarantee.
Someone asked what happens if you stop using the products. If you stop using the products your hair will return to the way it was before you started. Of note however is any hair grown back using the extract will be maintained if you continue with the shampoo even if you stop using the extract.
AskDocWeb: Thanks Tom, it always helps to hear from the manufacturer.
Subj: Mixed things
I'm hearing mixed things in this forum. I'm reading the initial hair loss/shedding continues for a couple months from the people who are using it, while the manufacturer claims 1 week..That's quite a big disparity..?
AskDocWeb: When you distort the facts like that it makes you appear to work for their competition, especially since you posted anonymously. There is only one post about hair loss continuing for a couple of months and that person (Jose 1/5/2008) was satisfied with their results and said they will continue using the Nisim Biofactors shampoo.
Subj: For a professional sportsman?
I would like to know if there are any ingredients in this product that are potentially illegal and possibly performance enhancing for a professional sportsman.
AskDocWeb: It sounds like you may have this product confused with another one. There are no performance enhancing substances or anything illegal in Nisim. Their Biofactors shampoo is for those suffering from hair loss.
