How do I apply Minoxidil?

2 min. readlast update: 10.17.2023

This product should be used once every night. To be effective, it is important to apply the product directly to your scalp and not to your hair so that it can easily get to your hair follicles to help regrow your hair.

  • There is no need to shampoo your hair before using the product. If you wish to shampoo your hair before applying Minoxidil, towel dry your hair so that your scalp is dry.
  • To open the container: Hold ring. While holding ring, twist cap to line up the arrow on the ring with the arrow on the cap. Tilt cap back and pull off cap.
  • The foam may begin to melt on contact if your fingers are warm. Rinse your fingers in cold water first before dispensing. Be sure to dry them thoroughly before handling the foam.
  • Within your hair thinning areas, make a center part to help maximize scalp exposure. Part your hair at least two more times on each side of the center part.
  • Using your fingertips, spread just enough foam over the hair loss areas and gently massage the foam into the scalp starting from the back to front (forehead) direction. Use until all the foam is gone.
  • Wash your hands well with soap and water after applying.
