What is Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is a white foam containing 5% minoxidil for use only on the scalp to help regrow hair in men.

Who may use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is for use only by men. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% may be appropriate for you if you are a male at least 18 years old and experiencing gradually thinning hair or gradual hair loss on the top of the scalp (vertex only, as shown below). It is not intended for frontal baldness or a receding hairline. The common inherited thinning or hair loss process begins slowly and may become noticeable only after years of gradual loss.

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is for men with hair loss or thinning hair that begins on the vertex of the scalp. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is more likely to regrow hair in men with hair loss in the range shown below. If men have more hair loss than shown, Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% may not work.

Many of those experiencing hair loss have other family members with gradually thinning hair or hair loss. If you have no family history of gradually thinning hair or of gradual hair loss, or your hair loss is patchy, see your doctor.

Who should NOT use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Women should not use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%.
Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% should not be used on babies or children under 18 years old.
Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% will not prevent or improve hair loss which may occur with the use of some prescription and non-prescription medications, certain severe nutritional problems (very low body iron; too much vitamin A intake), low thyroid states (hypothyroidism), chemotherapy, or diseases which cause scarring of the scalp.

Also, Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% will not improve hair loss due to:

damage from the use of hair care products which cause scarring or deep burns of the scalp.
hair grooming methods such as cornrowing or ponytails which require pulling the hair tightly back from the scalp.

Do not use if you are not sure of the reason for your hair loss.

Will Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% work for me?

The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Not everyone will respond to Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%. The response to Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% cannot be predicted. It is unlikely anyone will be able to grow back all their hair.

However, to see your best results with Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% make sure you get the medicine directly to the scalp and apply it twice a day, every day.

You may get better results if you have been losing your hair for a short period of time or have little hair loss. However, for some men Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% may not work.

How soon can I expect results from using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Since normal hair usually grows only 1/2 to 1 inch per month, hair regrowth with Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% also takes time.

Results may be seen as early as 2 months with twice daily use. For some men, it may take at least 4 months for results to be seen. If you do not see any results after 4 months, stop using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% and seek the advice of your physician.

When you first begin to use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%, your hair loss may increase temporarily for up to 2 weeks. This is likely a sign that you are getting rid of old hairs in order to regrow more new hairs. This temporary increase in hair loss is expected and is part of the process for how Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% regrows hair. Remember, this increased hair loss is temporary. However, if it continues after two weeks, see your physician.

If Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is working, what will the hair look like?

At first, hair growth is usually soft, downy, colorless hairs (like peach fuzz). After further use, the new hairs should be the same color and thickness as the other hairs on your scalp.

How long do I need to use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

If you experience hair regrowth, continued use of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is necessary or the hair loss will begin again.

What happens if I completely stop using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Continuous use of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you stop using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%, you will lose your newly regrown hair in 3 to 4 months.

How do I use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

For best results, apply half a capful 2 times a day directly to the scalp in the hair loss area. Using more than the recommended amount will not improve results. Each can should last one month, if used as directed. Never take this product by mouth or apply to other parts of the body.

When do I use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Apply Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% once in the morning and once at night. Allow the nighttime application to dry completely before going to bed. Each can should last one month, if used as directed.

What if I miss a dose or forget to use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

If you miss one or two daily doses of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%, just continue with your next dose. You should not make up for missed doses.

Can I use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% more than twice a day? Will it work faster, better?

No. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% will not work faster or better if used more than two times a day. More frequent use or larger doses have not been shown to speed up hair growth and may increase your chance of side effects.

What kind of shampoo should I use with Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

If you wash your scalp before applying Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%, use a mild shampoo.

Can I use hair sprays, mousses, conditioners, gels, etc.?

Yes. Hair sprays, spritz, or styling aids may be used on your hair while using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%. For best results, Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% should be allowed to soak into the scalp before using any styling products. Try to develop a good routine of applying Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% first, and then applying styling products and style as usual. Keep in mind that your best results will be seen with proper application.

Can I have my hair colored or permed or use hair relaxers while using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%?

Yes. We have no evidence that coloring or perming your hair or that the use of relaxers change the effect of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5%. However, because the use of a permanent wave and hair color can cause scalp irritation on certain people, we recommend the following precautions:

1.
To avoid possible scalp irritation, you should make sure all of the Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% has been washed off the hair and scalp before using color or perm chemicals.
2.
For best results, do not apply Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% on the same day that you use a chemical treatment on your hair.

Missing one day of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% will not affect your hair regrowth results.
