Using Our ProductsYour guide to using The Kit's Nutrients, Shampoo, and Minoxidil
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.
Take a single Nutrient capsule with your first meal of the day
Leave your Shampoo in for a minute or two before rinsing it out
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.
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.
Part your hair into sections and apply the Minoxidil directly onto your scalp
Stopping Hair Loss
Guides & Articles
There are nearly 100 different Head and Shoulders® products you can buy, most of which claim to combat dandruff. As you might expect, these products aren’t too dissimilar from one another. Most products contain zinc pyrithione as their active ingredient, while the brand’s clinical range of products use selenium sulphide.
Terminal hairs are thick, coarse hairs – like the hairs that grow on your scalp, eyebrows, and eyelashes. In contrast, vellus hairs are the short, wispy hairs on your face, limbs, and torso. If you have pattern hair loss, the hair follicles on your head are slowly shrinking and producing thinner, weaker hairs. This process occurs as follicles gradually stop producing terminal and start to make vellus hairs.
Bupropion is an antidepressant that’s often referred to by the brand name Wellbutrin. This drug has a range of side effects, one of which is drug-induced hair loss. Fortunately, medication-related hair loss is easily resolvable and simply requires users to switch to an alternative drug. However, many other antidepressants can also cause hair loss.
