Minoxidil exhibits a linear dose-response relationship. The thinking is that increasing the concentration of Minoxidil will improve the response (hair growth) in quantity and decrease the time to see results.
Studies on Minoxidil show higher percentages of Minoxidil result in greater hair growth. HLCC has been using 10% and 15% Minoxidil for many years and have found the same relationship to be true. Our clients on 10% show greater results quicker than our clients on 5%.
We have also seen 10% Minoxidil & 15% Minoxidil work far better on the frontal hair line of both men and women.
What Hinders Minoxidil from Working Well?
Sebum from sebaceous gland blocks the hair follicle. Minoxidil therefore, cannot penetrate through the sebum as easily to get to the dermal papilla (where hair growth occurs).
Minoxidil / Rogaine (which can contains up to 70% alcohol) stays on the surface causing, in many cases, irritation and itching of the scalp and drying of the hair shaft.
Minoxidil works at the dermal papilla, not on the scalp surface. This product has not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate or prevent any disease or illness and is for cosmetic purposes only.
Limited Penetration = Limited Results!
How Did We Improve Minoxidil?
HLCC Scalp Therapy Dex breaks up and dissolves sebum - After Dexpanthenol has hydrated the outer layer and dissolved the sebum, Minoxidil in carrier solution penetrates down to the dermal papilla. Remember, Minoxidil only works at the dermal papilla level, not on the scalp, so if it can't penetrate it can't work to re-grow hair.
Carrier Solution is a product which neutralizes the alcohol and propylene glycol in Minoxidil, while maintaining it in a liquid state, allowing for better penetration, less irritation, and dryness of the scalp. Use of the carrier lotion allows you to use less Minoxidil to achieve a larger effective dosage level by converting it into a lotion that is more easily absorbed.
Because of the improved delivery system, the amount of Minoxidil needed was significantly reduced (by 50%) to 1ml daily. These products has not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, mitigate or prevent any disease or illness and are for cosmetic purposes only.
