Your guide to using The Kit's Nutrients, Shampoo, and Minoxidil

Taking Nutrients

Taking our Nutrients is simple: Just take a single capsule each day along with your breakfast. If you forget, feel free to take your Nutrients with lunch or dinner – but don’t take more than one dose a day.

Using Shampoo

Using our Shampoo isn’t too different from any other shampoo you’ve used before. Wet your hair, apply the shampoo, and gently massage it into your roots. The Shampoo will start to foam.

This is where things get a little different: Rather than rinsing it out right away, leave the Shampoo in for a minute or two, like you would with a leave-in conditioner. Wash the rest of your body, and once you’re done, rinse your hair at the end. Feel free to condition your hair afterward.

Applying Minoxidil

When you open up The Kit, you’ll find three 2-ounce bottles of Minoxidil and a dropper applicator. If you’ve never used minoxidil, don’t worry – applying our solution is easy.

Start by parting your hair into sections. Each section should expose an area where your hair is thinning or where you’ve seen hair loss.

Use the dropper to apply 1 milliliter of Minoxidil over the area where you’d like to see hair regrowth. Make sure that the solution is spread evenly over the region where you’re experiencing hair loss symptoms.

Minoxidil is safe for your skin, so feel free to use your fingers to help spread the solution around or massage it into your scalp. The solution needs to be in contact with your skin and not just stuck in your hair.

Repeat this routine twice a day. Ideally, you should apply Minoxidil after you shower in the morning and at night, an hour or so before you go to bed. You ideally want to keep the Minoxidil on your hair for about 6 hours each time. 

Keep in mind that water and sweat may affect Minoxidil’s effectiveness. If you have a very active job, work out and shower during your lunch break, or even just get caught in a storm on your way to work, you may need to reapply your minoxidil.

The most important thing part of these instructions is simple: Use Minoxidil daily – otherwise, it may not work.

Understanding hair types

Understanding hair types

Andre Walker first developed a system to categorize hair types in the 1990s. Since then, it’s been expanded to include 12 hair subtypes. These subtypes are broken down into four main categories: type 1 (straight), type 2 (wavy), type 3 (curly), and type 4 (coily).

Understanding different alopecia types

Understanding different alopecia types

Androgenic alopecia is the main reason people go bald — but there are many other conditions that cause people to lose hair. These include autoimmune conditions like alopecia areata, stress-related hair loss (formally known as telogen effluvium), traction alopecia, and other forms of hair loss.

Hair cloning (A stem cell treatment for hair loss)

Hair cloning is an experimental treatment for androgenic alopecia. This technique involves the extraction and cloning of hair follicle cells. These follicles are meant to be taken from areas of the head not affected by hair loss, cloned in a lab, and then transplanted onto the person’s scalp.
