Part your hair and apply 1 ml two times per day directly onto the scalp in the area of the hair thinning/loss. Spread the liquid evenly over the hair-loss area. If you use your fingers, wash them with soap and warm water immediately. Using more product or using it more often will not improve results. Continued use is necessary to keep and increase your hair regrowth, or hair loss will begin again.
Active: Minoxidil (5% w/v)

› What is Minoxidil?
Minoxidil was first created as a blood pressure medication but patients began to notice they were growing more hair! With a change of direction, doctors started prescribing Minoxidil as a hair-loss supplement that promotes a full, healthy head of hair.
Minoxidil hair treatments are available in 2% or 5% propylene glycol topical solutions. The propylene glycol ensures that the applied Minoxidil is spread evenly across the scalp area and effectively absorbed through the skin.
› Scientific Studies Give Support to Hair Regrowth
Dermatologists conducted an observational study in 984 men with male-pattern hair loss for the duration of one year. The study evaluated the effectiveness of a 5% Minoxidil topical solution in stopping hair loss and stimulating new hair growth. For one year, patients applied 1 milliliter (ml) of 5% Minoxidil solution twice a day to the scalp area.
At the end of the year, the dermatologists reported that hair loss areas of the scalp had become smaller in 62% of the patients.
The Effectiveness Evaluation of 5% Minoxidil During the Study
VERY EFFECTIVE in 15.9% of patients
EFFECTIVE in 47.8% of patients
MODERATELY EFFECTIVE in 20.6% of patients
