Thanks for writing to us.
Morr 3% contains Minoxidil 3% usually used to stop or prevent hair loss & promote new hair growth.
Morr 3% can be applied once or twice a day depending how severe your hair loss is. There is usually dropper provided along with the solution so you should fill the dropper & empty the dropper on the top of your head. To achieve maximum benefit the solution should be in contact of scalp for 4 hours before making hair wet. You can use it after bath & can also be used before sleep.
It can cause allergic reaction like rash, redness, itching, irritation of treated area, swelling of mouth face, lips. If you develop any of this side effects than dont use Morr 3% & consult your dermatologist.
Take care.

Hello mariam
Firstly you should know the reason for hairfall. Hair fall can be due to multiple reasons like bad hygiene, malnutrition, anaemia, lack of sleep, thyroid disorders. Get yourself evaluated first to rule out anaemia by getting a CBCand thyroid profile done.
MORR solution is minoxidil which is basically an antihypertensive drug. Hypertrichosis or excessive hair growth is a side effect of the drug. Other side effects include hirsutism, weight gain and ECG changes and pericardial effusions.
