Hair loss update. No, my hair loss hasn’t slowed down. I also don’t see regrowth from the minoxidil yet. But it takes time. So many of you had interest in this topic, I thought I’d keep you updated. After reading all your great comments on this post, I started using the liquid instead of the foam. It really is easier to get directly onto my scalp. A commenter suggested it, so thank you very much! I checked with my doctor and she said it doesn’t matter if it’s labeled for a man or a woman. The ingredients are the same.
This Safeway version is less expensive than the name brand and has the same ingredients, so why pay more? I use the dropper, to part my hair for application. It dries in a flash and leaves no residue on my hair. Score!
Then I happened upon a wonderful thing this week! I always knew dry shampoo made your hair look thicker. But this new product from Kevin Murphy is better. DOO.OVER is specifically made as a finishing spray.
Women make the mistake of shampooing less often, when their hair starts to fall out. They assume it falls out because they’re washing it. It’s easy to think so, because that’s when you notice your hair in the sink , shower or comb. Not so. Shampooing your hair stimulates the hair follicles and is a good thing. You’re trying to activate hair growth. It’s highly recommended by many dermatologists as is gentle brushing with a soft Boar Bristle Brush.
Here’s how I use the DOO.OVER.
After shampooing and towel drying I apply the minoxidil directly to my scalp. After a few minutes I add the mousse and blow dry as usual.
Lifting large sections of my hair, I lightly spray underneath, from about 8-10 “. I drop one section and quickly move on to the next. I move quickly because I’m holding my breath. I don’t like breathing products into my lungs. I give it a second, then rub my scalp to distribute into the roots. I gently brush into shape and spray lightly with hairspray.
Viola! instant, lasting volume.
I’m having more testing of my thyroid done, and will keep you posted on the results.
