Overview

Introduction

Hair Joy 5% Solution is used to treat hair loss. It works by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles which further prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth resulting in longer, thicker and increased numbers of hair.

Hair Joy 5% Solution should only be applied directly to the scalp area in the amount, and in the way, specified on the label or by your doctor. Clean and dry your scalp before using it. It may take several months before you notice any hair growth and the first growth may be soft, colorless and barely visible. Using more than recommended will not speed up hair growth and may cause dangerous side effects. This medication must be used continuously to maintain hair growth. If your condition does not improve or worsens after using it for 4 to 6 months, tell your doctor.

It is generally safe and suitable for most people but has some potential side effects. The most common are headache, itching or irritation of the scalp.  This should not happen if you use it correctly and avoid contact with broken skin. If you get it in your eyes, mouth or broken skin, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water. Talk to your doctor if you are bothered by side effects, or they do not go away.

It should not be used by pregnant women. Consult your doctor if you are breastfeeding mother. It may not be appropriate if your hair loss is due to medications (such as chemotherapy) or any nutritional deficiency. You should also not use this medicine if you have high blood pressure or are using other creams or lotions to treat other scalp conditions.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Headache
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Rest in a quiet, dimly lit room. Do not sleep more than you normally would. Do not strain your eyes (for example by looking at a screen). Do not drink alcohol. Headaches are usually temporary and usually go away with time. But, if they last longer or get worse, ask your doctor to recommend a painkiller.

How to use Hair Joy Solution

Use this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use.

How Hair Joy Solution works

Hair Joy 5% Solution is a combination of two hair growth promoters: Minoxidil and Aminexil. Minoxidil is a vasodilator, meaning it widens the blood vessels and provides better blood flow to the hair follicles. This prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth resulting in longer, thicker and increased numbers of hair. Aminexil suppresses an enzyme which causes buildup of a protein (collagen) around the hair follicles leading to hair loss.

Patient Concerns

I have serious fungal infection n my head from past 12 months. For the first few months, I ignored thinking it's a normal dandruff. Later went to a dermatologist, he gave me Ketancolzole shampoo. Whenever I use Ketanocolzole shampoo and take the same drug, dandruff disappears but it again reappears after few days. I already have lost a huge amount of hairs. What should I do ? I want to get rid of this dandruff wants my hair back :( http://i.imgur.com/TLKfMpA.jpg http://i.imgur.com/qTZJzwI.jpg
