Topical Finasteride 101: How to Apply and More
Here you’ll find everything you need to know about this hair loss treatment—how it works, how to use it, and how to get best results. Let this be your guide.
How does our topical finasteride spray work?
This spray is a mixture of two clinically-proven ingredients to treat hair loss—finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride reduces DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss in men) in the scalp and stops more hair from falling out while minoxidil promotes hair growth by reactivating dormant follicles.
How do I apply topical finasteride & minoxidil spray?
Follow these steps once a day and you’ll be good to grow.
Is there anything else I need to know?
There are just a few more things to know before you get started.
Contrary to myths out there, you will not lose any extra hair by washing the scalp frequently so take good care of it while using this treatment. That means washing it (not just your hair) to avoid build up that could prevent the solution from properly absorbing into the scalp.
The minoxidil in this treatment helps kick start new hair growth and its first job is to make room for healthy new strands by shedding mature strands that were going to fall out anyway. Don’t be alarmed if you notice excess shedding when you start this treatment, it’s short term and isn’t usually noticeable for most people.
A quick note on potential side effects
Always use this treatment as directed by your medical provider, spraying more solution in more areas won’t make it any more effective and can increase the risk of side effects. If you experience worsening side effects, reach out to your provider.
Some itching or dryness of the scalp can occur early on as you get used to the treatment.
