Brief Answer:
Minoxidil 5% solution

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Sorry for the delayed response.

Apply Minoxidil 5% solution to the scalp every alternate day. This will improve the blood supply to the scalp and improve the hair health and regrowth.

Do not use any shampoo when you are applying this solution. It is available with brand name MINTOP.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
Need not worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Do not be misguided by internet. There is no such side effect of dictum that you should be using it. You can stop it slowly over a period of time.

I would not recommend any shampoo when you are using the Minoxidil. This by itself reduces the dandruff too.
