Question: Hi can i style my hair with styling product after applying minoxidil, and how easy is it to do this!? Is it oily? Would it be possible to mix the minoxidil dosage into a salt spray i use to style my hair and spray in the solution in my hair and then blow dry it? Or would this be least effective? Or would it work but just take longer for the hair to regrow?

Minoxidil for Hair LossAnswer: Hi, Ryan. No, you should not mix your minoxidil with any styling product - it should be applied separately in order for it to be effective.

In order for the medication to treat your hair loss properly it needs to be applied directly to the scalp so that it can be thoroughly absorbed into the hair follicles where it gets to work.

By mixing it with your salt spray you would render the treatment ineffective, firstly by diluting it and secondly by spraying it which makes the application less precise. As the styling product should be applied to your hair in order to add grit and texture to the hair, but the minoxidil should be applied to your scalp, combining the two means that one product will not be delivered to the right place. As such it is highly likely the majority of your already weakened treatment will end up caught in your hair rather than being absorbed where it is needed.

We are unsure as to whether you are a Belgravia client or not but in terms of the high strength minoxidil formulations we offer, only one preparation is oily. Anecdotal reports from clients who have used Regaine suggest that this product is greasy.

In order to give your hair loss treatment the best chance of working, we recommend you stick to applying your minoxidil as recommended and simply wait for around 20 minutes for your hair to dry naturally afterwards, you can then style your hair using your salt spray or other styling products, as normal.
