B. How to use?
Posted by D. Whitney on 21st Oct 2012
I've been using Lipogaine for several months now, after losing the option of more potent products as a result of a recent FDA crackdown on hair growth product companies. My search for the most potent hair growth products now available led me to Lipogaine, which contains 5% minoxidil, azelaic acid, which helps reduce DHT in the scalp, and retinol, which aids in the absorption of minoxidil. The other ingredients in Lipogaine are nice to have too, like the saw palmetto extract and beta-sitosterol, though what they might be able to do when applied topically is unclear to me.
The solution takes a bit of time to dry, but other products have taken much longer for me, especially when there are more active ingredients than just minoxidil. I find that what works best for me is to apply the full 1 ml amount at bedtime, and do half of that in the morning before heading out, which then doesn't give me much of an issue with drying. It's also a bit sticky when dry, but a half application in the morning is easy to work with when dry and even before it's dry. And since I've used so much minoxidil solution by this point of my life, it's better for me to give my scalp a bit of a break during the day at this point. The eyedropper applicator features 4 measurement lines to help me do this.
And it does seem to be maintaining the state of my hair growth reasonably well. Again, I'm at a more advanced stage and condition of hair loss than many others may be, so nothing that I know of out there yet can get it all to grow back, but I'm happy with the results from this product.
One more thing I'll add in response to the reviewer that suggested blow drying after applying - you do not want to do that. It's important for minoxidil to stay in liquid form on the scalp for a while so that it can be absorbed. Once it's dry, it will be absorbed far less, or not at all.

I am so happy to write a comment about Lipogaine for Men! I was very skeptical about trying something new to get my hair to grow back. My hair was falling out in great amounts every day. My palm was full of fine hair when my hand combed through my wet hair. I had been losing my hair like this for several months. I didn't know what to do. My hair was so thin. I had bald spots that I tried to cover, and my scalp was very visible. I felt like I was going bald. I ordered this product, started using it right away. My hair completely stopped falling out within a month and started growing back. I have been using this product for 6 months now and my hair is getting fuller everyday. I could not be happier with the results. I recommended the product to a friend who was having a similar problem, and he is getting similar results.

Lipogaine for Men is truly amazing. I have been using it for almost a year now, The result is incredible. I used it twice a day for half year, and then I switched to only once a day. I went through a scary period of time in the first month. I saw significantly increased hair loss. I contacted the seller. The seller said it was shedding prior to the growth stimulated by the product. Sure enough, my hair loss almost completely stopped after two month and I started to see new hair springing out of scalp. Wonderful product, highly recommend it to skeptics, just give it time and you too will see the difference.

Lipogaine really works. I was a little skeptic but also desperate. I decided to give it try. Only 5 weeks and I can already see new hairs in my receding hair line popping up. It is truly amazing. There are hairs in places that have been empty for over 2 years now. The only complaint I have it is a little pricy

I have now been using this product for 10 months religiously following the instruction on the bottle. I wish I had taken before photo to show you how much growth I had in the last 10 months. I am really glad that I made my decision to switch from Rogaine to Lipogaine after using Rogaine for 4 months with no result.
My hair is not only fuller but also stronger, I can pull on my hair quite vigorously without it causing Any discomfort whatsoever! Keep in mind I was not bald to begin with, just merely thinning in some areas with a receding frontal hairline. I didn't expect to get back the hair of my youth but Lipogaine for Men has made my hair and scalp overall much healthier than Ever before, and much fuller than when I was using Rogaine! I will continue using this product as it is the Best I have Ever used. ..

Used twice daily as suggested on the bottle, this product produced noticeable results in less than 30 days. My hair is thicker already, and is not falling out at nearly the rate it was. I'm most impressed.
