Minoxidil is an FDA-approved medication for the treatment of hereditary hair loss or thinning in men and women. Minoxidil 2% is the only FDA-approved medication for hair loss in women. Minoxidil 5% is FDA-approved for hair loss only in men. By starting to use Cerafill Retaliate Minoxidil you will take control of the thinning process with a product proven to help regrow hair*.  Topical minoxidil has been shown to increase the caliber of hairs, as well as to increase the amount of time that they stay in the actively growing phase. With continued use, the hairs will actually cycle back as thicker versions of themselves, rather than continuing to miniaturize.

It can take time to see results from this product. Physicians advise that their patients allow a minimum of 3 months and possibly even as long as 12 months to see a difference. The more consistent you can be, the better your results will be. You should apply a dose (1 ml) of Minoxidil Topical Solution directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area two times a day; for example, once in the morning and once at night. This is because minoxidil, the active ingredient, is working directly on the hair follicles before they grow out of the scalp. This product cannot improve the quality or growth of hairs that have already grown out of the scalp.

Continuous use of Minoxidil is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you stop using Minoxidil, the normal hair loss process will start again. You will probably lose your newly regrown hair In three to four months.

While there is no "recommended diet" for great hair, it is essential that your body receive all the required daily nutrients for overall good health. A daily multivitamin can generally provide what most individuals need. There is data that supports the role of biotin in improving hair health, because infants who lack this in their diet can develop a patchy alopecia. Most people get sufficient amounts in their diet, but adding it as a vitamin cannot hurt. Other supplements possibly linked to hair thinning include zinc, vitamin D and iron. Before starting any of these, you should consult with your doctor. vitamins & supplements



While everyday stress does not cause hair loss, major physiologic stress certainly can. It is worth looking at your life to make sure you have a healthy balance of work and play. While there is no evidence that getting a weekly massage will help regrow your hair, it is important to make sure you have enough time to take care of yourself, eat well, exercise and have time for relaxation. 

You can also take significant steps to help protect your hair from the elements. This can involve wearing a hat when you are outside, spritzing hair with an SPF spray, and minimizing the amount of heat and chemicals applied to the hair. Beware of the risks of overexposure to ultraviolet rays, wind, cold and pollution because they can all have an effect on your hair’s appearance. Protecting it from the elements is just as important a step as the products you choose.
