Question: About applying minoxidil – can I use almond oil after washing it?
Answer: Hi, Gourav. We’re not quite sure what order you are planning to use these products in. For the purposes of answering this question we are assuming you are washing your hair, then applying almond oil and then adding your hair loss treatment on top.
You can use almond oil on the lengths of your hair at any point after washing it and before or after your minoxidil as it is not touching the scalp. It can be best for people experiencing hair loss not to apply the oil to your roots or your scalp though as doing so can make the hair look thinner and lank or greasy.
If you do wish to use almond oil on your scalp, minoxidil should be applied directly to your scalp before the oil. Be sure to dry your hair and scalp first. It is best to apply oil after the minoxidil has been left to sink in for at least half an hour after before the oil goes on, otherwise proper absorption of the treatment may be affected by the oil.
