Minoxidil is a topical solution which is applied to the scalp. It is a commonly used medication for men and women suffering with androgenic alopecia (male/ female pattern hair loss). Minoxidil is a product which you may also know as Regaine or Rogaine which comes in a greasy foam preparation. Minoxidil does also come in other forms such as a light spray or in an oil preparation.
At Dense after considering all the practicalities, we developed a light spray to ensure the formulation is as effective as our competitors but it should enable you to style your hair with minimal greasiness and can still be used in conjunction with your favourite Dense styling products. Worried about scalp irritation? We have an alcohol-free preparation of minoxidil which should allow you to use minoxidil without causing scalp inflammation.

Try not to let the early hair shedding put you off, continue with using the medication things will improve it just requires some patience and perseverance.

Hair Loss has several causes one of the main ones being DHT- minoxidil will not inhibit DHT therefore taking minoxidil alone may not give you a full head of hair. At Dense our chemists have worked hard to develop a minoxidil solution which is fortified with DHT blocking compounds such as finasteride making it a lot
