Minoxidil 5%. Buy Kirkland Minoxidil 5% Extra Strength in the UK, with FREE, next-day shipping. Minoxidil 5% is aimed at men, rather then the 2% version is aimed at women (like Regaine). Stop hair loss and regrow the hair you thought lost!
Minoxidil 5% Extra Strength is the best value Minoxidil available to buy in the UK. Approved by the FDA in the United States and the MHRA here in the UK, Minoxidil 5% has been shown to stop hair loss in men with Male Pattern Baldness and significantly promote new hair growth.
Minoxidil is also available in a 2% concentration, this version normally aimed at women with hair loss.
The 5% concentration Minoxidil is called “extra strength” because of a 2% concentration version, which was originally aimed at women. The 5% was considered too strong for many women, as it was having a greater effect than wanted – growing hair in places not wanted on women.
As men tend to be a little hairier, generally, the 5% has been deemed suitable for men looking to regrow hair thought lost.
Application of Minoxidil 5%
Following the recommended application of either 5% Topical Solution or Foam is crucial if the best results are to be achieved. In both formats, apply the Minoxidil 5% twice (2 times) per day. Make sure your hair is clean and thoroughly dry before applying and massage the recommended dose – 1ml – in to your scalp, or beard area and leave for as long as you can (a minimum of two hours) before you expose your hair to anything that might impede its absorption in your skin.
Are there Side Effects from Minoxidil 5%?
Some people do suffer some mild side effects from these hair treatments, but this is NOT due to the Minoxidil. Instead, irritation is cause in some by the substance, propylene glycol, which is used to help and speed up the absorption of the Minoxidil in to your skin. Many people prefer the foam product, as it contains less propylene glycol, although our clients have given the distinct impression that the topical solution has a greater effect.
Thankfully, this irritation appears to be part of your skin becoming accustomed to the chemicals. Most people who experience irritation, see a drop in side effects within the first week or two.
