Minoxidil for Hair LossName: 


Question: How long do you have to wait for 5% minoxidil liquid solution to properly absorb in to the scalp before applying hair styling products?

Answer: Hi, Ryan. We advise that you always check the guidelines on the packaging or speak with the provider of your hair loss treatment.

However, in general, it is advisable to wait at least 15 to 20 minutes after applying minoxidil before adding in your hair styling products. Ideally, the longer you can wait, the better.

Depending on which formulation you use, it is often possible to style your hair then apply your treatment afterwards, seeing as the minoxidil is applied directly to the scalp and styling products concentrate on the shafts and ends of the hair.

We hope this helps to answer your hair loss query and would direct you to our Top 10 Questions About Using Minoxidil page which answers some similar questions and may also be of interest to you.
