  • Wash your hands before and after application.
  • Do not shampoo your hair for 4 hours after applying Mintop 2% Solution or use hairdryer as it can reduce the effectiveness of the medicine.

  • Take care that Mintop 2% Solution does not trickle down onto your face as it may cause undesirable facial hair growth.

First we have to ascertain cause of the hair loss, whether it is male pattern baldness or some other reason. In MPB, these medicines will work. However, if it is normal anterotemporal recession of hairline, then not much improvement is expected
