What is the best way to take Minoxidil?

Make sure your hair and scalp are completely dry before applying this medicine.

Apply the amount prescribed to the area of the scalp being treated, beginning in the center of the area. Follow your doctor’s instructions on how to apply the solution, using the applicator provided.

Do not shampoo your hair for 4 hours after applying minoxidil.

Immediately after using this medicine, wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them.

Do not use a hairdryer to dry the scalp after you apply minoxidil solution. Blowing with a hairdryer on the scalp may make the treatment less effective.

Allow the minoxidil to completely dry for 2 to 4 hours after applying it, including before going to bed. Minoxidil can stain clothing, hats, or bed linen if your hair or scalp is not fully dry after using the medicine.

Avoid transferring the medicine while wet to other parts of the body. This can occur if the medicine gets on your pillowcase or bed linens or if your hands are not washed after applying minoxidil.

How long does it take Minoxidil to work?

The good news is that minoxidil is proven to combat male pattern baldness. The less good news is that it takes some time to show results.

It may take four to six months (or more) of regular and consistent use before you notice any improvement. And a very important note: For best results, you must apply twice daily.
