Men buy Minoxidil topical treatment so they can prevent further male pattern hair loss and support hair regrowth.
Minoxidil is thought to help increase circulation in the scalp, which can help improve nutrients and ingredient delivery to the hair follicle.

This 5% solution can be purchased over the counter without a prescription.
Minoxidil must be used consistently in order to sustain results. Typically, it takes four months to notice benefits.
Minoxidil 5% solution is intended for use by males, if you are not male and order this product, it will be declined and a refund will be sent to you.
How to use Minoxidil solution?
Before using the medication, thoroughly clean and dry the scalp area. You can use damp hair to apply this product. To use the solution, add 20 drops or 1ml of medication to the applicator (up to the 1mm line). Apply the solution evenly to the affected area of the scalp by parting your hair in the area where it is thinning. Rub in gently. Before applying additional styling products (such as gels or mousse) or before retiring to bed, let the solution completely dry.
Rinse your hands in cold water and pat them dry before applying the foam. Rub the foam into the scalp using about half a capful. Before styling or going to bed, let the foam completely dry.
How does Minoxidil treat hair loss?
In 4 different ways, minoxidil aids in promoting hair growth:
- Follicular miniaturisation is reversed.
- Enhances the blood flow surrounding the follicles.
- Encourages follicular growth phase movement.
- Extends the growing phase of each follicle.
In a clinical trial of hair loss patients that were treated with 2% or 5% Minoxidil Solution showed a remarkable increase in hair growth and a decrease in hair loss, and superior results were evident with the 5% formulation.
Who is Minoxidil for?
Minoxidil 5% solution is a clinically proven effective treatment for men diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. Studies show it can effectively regrow hair when used twice daily by men ages 18-49 with mild to moderate hereditary hair loss on the vertex scalp.
By increasing blood flow and extending the growth phase of hair follicles, minoxidil helps reverse follicle miniaturisation to promote fuller, healthier hair growth. Clinical trials demonstrate that using the 5% topical solution leads to a remarkable increase in hair count and a decrease in hair loss after approximately 3-6 months of continuous treatment.
Who should not use Minoxidil?
You should avoid using minoxidil if you:
- Have no family history of hair loss and are losing hair in an unusual pattern. Minoxidil treats male and female pattern baldness, not other hair loss conditions.
- Have sudden unexplained hair loss. This could signal an underlying medical condition needing proper diagnosis.
- Are under 18 years old. Minoxidil is only approved for use in adults over 18.
- Have sensitivity or allergies to minoxidil or any inactive ingredients in the solution. Discontinue use if irritation develops.
- Have high blood pressure or heart, liver, or kidney disease. Consult a doctor before using minoxidil if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
When will I start seeing results?
It's important to be patient when using minoxidil solution to treat male pattern baldness. Hair growth is a slow process, and it takes time for this topical treatment to work.
During the first 2-4 months of consistent use, some users notice that they are shedding more hair than normal. This temporary increase in hair loss is due to the timing of the hair growth cycle and the product pushing more hair follicles into the active growth phase. So, it may initially look like hair loss is worsening.
Most clinical studies show that the positive effects of minoxidil become evident after approximately 3-6 months of continuous treatment twice per day. Some men start to see subtle improvements in hair regrowth and slowing of hair loss in as little as 4 months. Maximum results typically occur between 6-12 months of daily use.
To see the best results, it is vital to use the 5% minoxidil solution as directed for a minimum of 3-4 months before evaluating its efficacy. Take before and after photos to track improvements in hair count over the course of treatment. And stick with it – discontinuing use will likely lead to reversal of any hair regrowth within 3-4 months.
The recommended dose is 1ml of solution every 12 hours. The hair and scalp must be completely dry when applying the product.
Apply 1ml of the solution (equivalent to 10 metered sprays). Spread the solution using your fingertips on the treatment area, starting from the centre. To be applied to the hair only.
