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

    I bought this for my 86-year-old mother. She had experienced gradual hair loss over the years, but the last two years were significant. She was embarrassed to go out in public. My daughter's hairdresser suggested the Nioxin Oil, and said for it to be effective, we needed to use the shampoo too (or a comparable one that didn't leave residue on the scalp). The results speak for themselves. Mother believes she has more hair now than she ever had. I am so glad I took a "before" picture!

                      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.

                          A:

                          It would be unlikely, but there are different percent's of Minoxidil, please ensure you are using the corresponding number. The Women's Minoxidil is usually 2% so make sure the Rogaine is 2% prior to switching.

                          Hello, that is a great question. It is not recommended to use during Chemo, but it is safe to use after Chemo. We do however recommend consulting your physician prior to using. After you consult with your physician, I would recommend going to the website and using our consultation tool to find the recommended system.

                          Monoxidil is not intended to be used for a receding hairline, and it should not be applied to the eyebrows.

                          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.
