                            My hair is thinning right at the front. I followed the package directions and also watched several YouTube videos about application. The #4 comes out as a foam. Some are sprays. I think the ones for noticibly thinning hair are foams. The first thing I noticed is it immediately runs down my forehead. You need to rub in really fast. I can deal with that. What I really dislike is when it dries it leaves my hair crispy/sticky and somewhat shiny. It think it actually makes the thinning more noticible! It's like highlighter for my thinning hair! I'm so disappointed.

                            • Q:

                              Should I use this everyday even if I don't wash my hair everyday, or only when I wash it? My hair loss is from weight loss surgery in 2013 and I've started to lose my hair again. I have been using this product for about a month now and so far I am not noticing a difference. (shampoo, conditioner and foam) But still optimistic that this will help.

                                Please use the System that most closely matches your hair type and condition. For noticeably thinning hair, we suggest one of the following, according to your hair type and condition:

                                System 2 - fine, natural hair
                                System 4 - fine, chemically treated hair
                                System 6 - medium to coarse hair

                              I would like to use Hair System Kit #4. However I have side effects to Minoxidil. Do these products contain any Minoxidil?

                                No, the products within System 4 do not contain Minoxidil. Minoxidil is sold as a separate treatment in concentrations of 2% for women and 5% for men.

                              Can I use the scalp treatment first and then apply with minoxidil or only use minoxidil alone?

                                We do not recommend using the Scalp Treatment in conjunction with Minoxidil. You should only be using 1 topical treatment, either the Scalp Treatment or Minoxidil.
