Question: I have my hair cut in a classic short back and sides hairstyle but it’s quite long on top. I’m just about to start treatment so do I need to cut my hair shorter so the liquid is more effective? I want to do anything I can to maximise my results.
Answer: Hi, Rob. There’s no reason for you to cut your hair short, or for you to change your hairstyle at all, just because you’re starting hair loss treatment.
As long as when you are applying liquid minoxidil it is administered directly to your scalp, as explained during your consultation – your hair loss specialist and/or treatment advisor will be able to give you a refresher demonstration if you would like one – then there’s nothing to worry about.
In order to maximise the benefits of using whichever formulation of high strength minoxidil has been recommended as part of your Belgravia treatment course, we strongly suggest you allow sufficient time for the liquid to be absorbed into the scalp after each application.
You can also try using hair growth boosters alongside your minoxidi; your treatment advisor can discuss these options with you and explain which are the most appropriate for your hair loss, be it a home-use HairMax Lasercomb or our highly targeted dietary supplements, Hair Vitalics. These can be used from the start of a treatment programme or added in along the way and can help the hair towards achieving its full potential.
