Redken's Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil Topical Solution USP 2% For Women.

Benefits:
  • Clinically proven to help regrow hair*
  • Revitalizes hair follicles

Who should use Minoxidil Topical Solution?
  • Adults 18 years and older who are experiencing gradually thinning hair or gradual hair loss on the top of the head
  • Those experiencing hair loss who have other family members with gradual thinning hair or hair loss

Who should not use Minoxidil Topical Solution?

Minoxidil Topical Solution will not prevent or improve hair loss related to:
  • Pregnancy
  • The use of some prescription and non-prescription medications
  • Certain severe nutritional problems (very low body iron; excessive vitamin A intake)
  • The recently discontinued use of birth control pills
  • Low thyroid states (hypothyroidism)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Diseases which cause scarring of the scalp
  • 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 Minoxidil Topical Solution if:
  • The degree of hair loss is more than that shown in the package insert, because this product may not work
  • There is no family history of hair loss
  • Hair loss is sudden and/or patchy
  • The reason for hair loss is unknown
  • Under 18 years of age, do not use on babies and children
  • Scalp is red, inflamed, infected, irritated, or painful
  • Other medicines are used on the scalp

*For men and women with hereditary hair loss. It takes time to regrow hair, results may be visible for men after using Minoxidil regularly 2-4 months. Results may be visible for women after using Minoxidil regularly for 4 months. The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Minoxidil will not work for everyone. Stop using this product if you do not see hair regrowth after 4 months, and see your doctor.
Remove the cap. To remove, push down and turn in direction of the arrows on the cap.

Follow these steps:
  • Part hair in the area of hair thinning/loss
  • Squeeze the rubber bulb and insert the dropper into the bottle. Release the bulb, allowing the dropper to fill to the 1 mL line. If the level of the solution is above the 1 mL line, squeeze the extra amount back into the bottle
  • Place the tip near the part of the scalp you want to treat and gently squeeze the bulb to gradually release the solution. To prevent the solution from running off the scalp, apply a small amount at a time
  • After each use attach the dropper to the bottle to make it child-resistant by turning it clockwise until tightly closed
  • Apply 1 mL two times a day directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area. Do not use more. Spread the liquid evenly over the hair loss area. If you use your fingers, wash hands with soap and water immediately. Each bottle should last about one month, if used as directed.

      Comments about Redken Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil Topical Solution USP 2% For Women:

      My loss came as the side effect from a medication, almost 20 years ago, so it is sort of all over the top of my scalp. It says, on the bottle, that this product is not for that kind of hair loss, but I use it anyway. My dermatologist recommended it too. It has not grown any more hair, but I believe that it has made the strands on my head thicker, so it is easier for me to cover the thin spots. I use the whole system. The shampoo, conditioner, the thickening treatment and the minoxidil.

            I've used it for two months now and although the packaging says it takes 3 months to see results, I can already see new hair growth. It's spendy, one bottle lasts 30 days if used as directed, but...if it works, TOTALLY worth the time and money

                      I've used this product for a month and no sign of any hair growth. One of the issues is that the serum runs off my scalp. I apply it slowly and try to rub it in but it's not easily absorbed. A mousse like mixture would be better or a cream.

                          Redken Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil Topical Solution should be applied directly to your scalp twice a day. 1 mL in the morning and 1 mL in the evening.

                          The hair can be damp or dry.

                      • Q:

                        I only wash my hair a few times a week. Can I just use the retaliate minoxidil on those days? And also is this like Rogaine where once you stop your hair falls again?

                          A:

                          That is correct. Use 1mL of Minoxidil Topical solution 2x day, every day (morning and evening). Shampoo and condition with Redken Retaliate when needed.

                          You are right; When you stop using Redken Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil Topical Solution USP 2% For Women, your hair will return to its original thinning state.
