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.

How long does finasteride take to work?

How long does finasteride take to work?

Finasteride is an oral medication used to treat androgenic alopecia. Most people need to take this drug for at least 3 months before they start seeing results. This delay is due to the time the hair growth cycle takes. If you take finasteride irregularly or in lower doses, it will likely take even longer to see results.

Post-Finasteride Syndrome

Post-Finasteride Syndrome

Post-finasteride syndrome is a cluster of side effects that affect people taking DHT blocking medications like finasteride and dutasteride. These side effects are quite serious, ranging from mental health problems to erectile dysfunction. Post finasteride syndrome is thought to affect less than one percent of people taking DHT-blocking drugs.

Minoxidil vs. Finasteride

Minoxidil vs. Finasteride

Minoxidil and finasteride are both FDA-approved treatments for hair loss, but they work in completely different ways. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp, while finasteride works as a hormone blocker. The way you take these medications is also different: Minoxidil is a topical solution, while finasteride is a pill you take once a day.
