Minoxidil 5 per cent with MPGName: Ali

Question: Can I use minoxidil after shampooing with Alpecin shampoo? How long do I have to wait after washing my hair before I can apply minoxidil? I use minoxidil liquid.

Answer: Hi Ali. Absolutely! You can apply minoxidil after washing your hair with Alpecin or any other type of shampoo or conditioner.

Just make sure that your hair and scalp are completely dry first  – a little damp is ok but dry is the ideal – then you can apply the minoxidil as usual.

Hi Paul, After using minoxidil, you can wash your hair around 6-8 hours later, once the treatment has had time to properly absorb.
