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
Minoxidil was the very first treatment to be FDA-approved for androgenic alopecia. It was first approved as a liquid serum, then as a foam. This medication is now available in 2 percent and 5 percent concentrations. The 5 percent products are thought to be most effective for men.
There’s no individual gene responsible for androgenic alopecia. Instead, a number of different factors are responsible for the progression of this type of hair loss, including epigenetics, your diet, hormonal changes, and hundreds of genetic loci. The multifactorial aspect of this condition is part of what makes it so hard to treat!
Although minoxidil was first FDA-approved as a hair loss treatment in the 1980s, minoxidil foam didn’t come into the market until 2006. Since then, the foam version of minoxidil has been shown to be just as effective as the liquid serum, preventing further hair loss and improving hair regrowth.
