Hair Loss/minoxidil


Hi doctor i am 18 years old i have been using minoxidil for a year now there are few questions , when i but a hair product like cream do i have to wash it before putting minoxidil ? and do i have to wash my hair every  day before putting minoxidil because i heard that i have to wash it every day to clean the scalp from sweat and dirt . thanks

Hello Mohamed,

Any topical products applied to the scalp will absorb and perform best when it is applied to a clean, dry scalp.  Daily shampoo is required by most men (depending on sweating, airbourne pollutants, etc).

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!
