Please read this leaflet carefully. It will help you understand how to use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) and what to expect from its use. It takes time to regrow hair.

WHAT IS MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) is a white foam containing 5% minoxidil for use only on the scalp to help regrow hair in women.

WHO MAY USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) may be appropriate for you if you are an adult who is at least 18 years old and experiencing gradually thinning hair or gradual hair loss on the top of your scalp. The common hereditary thinning or hair loss process begins slowly and may become noticeable only after years of gradual loss.

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) is for general thinning of hair on the top of the scalp as shown below. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) has been shown to regrow hair in women with the degrees of hair loss shown. If women have more hair loss than shown, Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) may not work.

Many of those experiencing hair loss have other family members with gradual thinning of hair or hair loss. If there is no family history of gradual thinning or gradual hair loss, or hair loss is patchy, see your doctor.

WHO SHOULD NOT USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) will not prevent or improve hair loss related to pregnancy, the use of some prescription and non-prescription medications, certain severe nutritional problems (very low body iron; excessive vitamin A intake), the recently discontinued use of birth control pills, low thyroid states (hypothyroidism), chemotherapy, or diseases which cause scarring of the scalp. Also, Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) will not improve hair loss due to:

Damage from the use of hair care products which cause scarring or deep burns of the scalp.
Hair grooming methods such as cornrowing or ponytails which require pulling the hair tightly back from the scalp.

Do not use if you are not sure of the reason for your hair loss.

WILL MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN) WORK FOR ME?

The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Not everyone will respond to Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women). The response to Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) cannot be predicted. No one will be able to grow back all their hair.

To see your best results with Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women), make sure you apply the product directly to the scalp once daily. For some women, Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) may not work.

HOW SOON CAN I EXPECT RESULTS FROM USING MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

Since normal hair usually grows only 1/2 to 1 inch per month, hair regrowth with Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) also takes time. Generally, new hair growth is slow for a Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) user. Results may be seen as early as 3 months with once daily use. For some women, it may take at least 6 months for results to be seen. If you do not see any results after 6 months, stop using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) and seek the advice of your doctor.

When you first begin to use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women), your hair loss may continue for up to 2 weeks. This increase in hair loss is expected and is temporary. However, if it continues after two weeks, see your physician.

IF MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN) IS WORKING, WHAT WILL THE HAIR LOOK LIKE?

At first, hair growth may be soft, downy, and colorless hairs. After further use, the new hairs should be the same color and thickness as the other hairs on your scalp.

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

If you respond to Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women), you need to use it once daily to keep and continue the hair regrowth. Up to 3 months of usage may be needed to see your best results from Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women).

WHAT HAPPENS IF I COMPLETELY STOP USING MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)? WILL I KEEP THE NEW HAIR?

Continuous use of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you stop using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women), the normal hair loss process will start again. You will probably lose your newly regrown hair in three to four months.

HOW DO I USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

For best results, apply half a capful once a day directly to the scalp in the hair loss area. Using more than the recommended amount will not improve results. Each can should last two months, if used as directed. Never take this product by mouth or apply to other parts of the body. Please refer to the “Directions for Use” section of this leaflet.

WHEN DO I USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

Apply Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) once daily. If you apply at night, allow application to dry completely before going to bed.

WHAT IF I FORGET TO USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN) OR MISS A DOSE?

If you miss one daily dose of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women), just continue with your next dose. You should not make up for missed doses.

CAN I USE MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN) MORE THAN ONCE A DAY? WILL IT WORK FASTER, BETTER?

No. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) will not work faster or better if used more than once a day. More frequent use or larger doses have not been shown to speed up hair growth and may increase your chances of side effects.

WHAT KIND OF SHAMPOO SHOULD I USE WITH MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

If you wash your scalp before applying Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women), use a mild shampoo.

CAN I USE HAIR SPRAYS, MOUSSES, CONDITIONERS, GELS, ETC.?

Yes. There is no reason to change your usual hair care routine when using Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women). However, you should apply Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) first and wait for it to dry before applying your styling aids.

CAN I HAVE MY HAIR COLORED OR PERMED OR USE HAIR RELAXERS WHILE USING MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN)?

Yes. We have no evidence that coloring, perming, or using relaxers on your hair change the effect of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women). However, because the use of a permanent wave and hair color can cause scalp irritation on certain people, we recommend the following precautions:

1.
To avoid possible scalp irritation, you should make sure all of the Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) has been washed off the hair and scalp before using color or perm chemicals.
2.

3.
Do not use Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) for 24 hours after using any chemicals to make sure your scalp has not been irritated by the perm or color treatment. If no irritation occurs, continue use of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) as usual.
4.
Simply restart your normal Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) routine. There is no need to use more Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) to make up for missed applications.

Missing one day of Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) will not affect your hair regrowth results.

CAN I APPLY MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOR WOMEN) AND WASH MY HAIR AN HOUR LATER?

No. For Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) to work best, you should allow Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (For Women) to remain on the scalp for about 4 hours before washing.
