Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Do not take any medications orally for the hair fall. The best remedy for hair fall is application of MINOXIDIL 5% solution to the scalp every alternate day.

Minoxidil improves blood circulation to the air roots and helps in better growth and health.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.

Hi,

Thank for writing back.

Sorry for the delay in answering.

Minoxidil has to be applied to dry scalp, and leave it there without washing.

Do consume foods XXXXXXX in keratin, like proteins and fruits.

Hope, I answered your query.
