Nioxin Minoxidil Topical Solution USP for Women with 2% Minoxidil - the only ingredient clinically proven to effectively help hair growth in women and the only medicine available to treat female pattern baldness.
Apply one mL 2 times a day directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area. See carton and enclosed leaflet for complete directions. Using more or more often will not improve results. Continued use is necessary or hair loss will begin again. When using this product do not apply on other parts of the body. Avoid contact with the eyes. In case of accidental contact, rinse eyes with large amounts of cool tap water. Some people have experienced changes in hair color and/or texture.

    Comments about Nioxin Minoxidil Topical Solution USP 2% For Women:

    Bought this for my 86-year-old mother, who has experienced significant hair loss in the past two years. She was about ready to buy a wig. We heard about this product and decided to give it a try. The results have been amazing. I must admit, I was skeptical, but not any more. Hair is growing where it once was not...no more bald spots. We purchased the same brand shampoo because a hair dresser said you really must use a shampoo that is all natural or it defeats the purpose.

              Liquid is hard to control and runs before I can effectively rub it in. It either runs to the back or down my forehead. Too soon to determine if it's effective. Flakes if you don't wash your hair the next day.

                      This product should not be combined with Scalp Treatment, Hair Booster or Night Density Rescue. The combination of products can be too strong and could cause irritation. Here is the order of usage: Nioxin shampoo, Therapy Conditioner, and Minoxidil Topical Solution twice a day.

                      A:

                      The Nioxin Minoxidil is formulated specifically for those that experience hereditary hair loss. A better choice for mechanically damaged hair is the Nioxin system kit #4, in combination with Hair Booster. The Hair Booster is infused with ultra concentrated CoZyme-10 vitamin complex especially designed for those areas of low density. This will help strengthen the hair and help prevent future breakage. The order you should apply these products is: Nioxin Shampoo #4, Nioxin Therapy Conditioner #4, Hair Booster on towel dried hair, and last Scalp Treatment #4 on towel dried hair.

                      A:

                      These products would be great for your grandmother, even if her hair is natural, because coarse hair is typically drier than other hair types, that is what I would have recommended as well. System kit #6 is more moisturizing for this hair type. To minimize irritation we recommend your grandmother wait 4 hours after the application of the Scalp Treatment.
