What causes hair loss?

The most common form of hair loss is pattern baldness (Androgenic Alopecia), a genetic condition that affects individuals at different ages. The underlying cause is a hormone called DHT that binds to the hair root. DHT cuts off the blood supply to hair follicles. This causes the hair to fall out and come back thinner at the next cycle. This process continues until hair ceases to grow in the region.

Is hair loss in women similar to hair loss in men?

Androgenic Alopecia, or pattern hair loss, is the most common cause of hair loss in women. However, women can experience hair loss for different reasons, including certain prescription drugs or hormonal changes. If the hair loss is more evident at the crown, this is a likely indication of pattern baldness, and Scalp Med® will work for you.

What is Scalp Med®?

Scalp Med® is a proven-effective hair-regrowth process that consists of two components, Vitadil® and NutriSol®.

Vitadil®-5A (for Men) and Vitadil®-2A (for Women) contain FDA-approved formulas for hair growth. The active ingredient in these products is maximum-strength Minoxidil††, which has been proven to re-grow hair.

Patented NutriSol® thickens your hair from root to end. Working in conjunction with Vitadil®, NutriSol® contains essential amino acids, minerals, herbs and nutrients that help restore the structures of your hair follicles and create an ideal scalp environment to promote new hair growth. Nutrisol® also reduces the itching and redness some users of Minoxidil†† may experience.

How do Scalp Med® hair re-growth products work?

Scalp Med® has developed a 2-step regimen that stops hair loss and stimulates growth of new, healthy hair. Step 1 is our patented NutriSol® pretreatment, which prepares the scalp and creates an ideal environment for new hair growth. Step 2 is our Vitadil®-5A (for men) or Vitadil®-2A (for women) treatment formula, which delivers a clinical-strength dose of Minoxidil††, the only FDA-approved topical ingredient to help re-grow hair.

Minoxidil†† works to keep blood vessels in your scalp open. This allows oxygen and nutrients to flow into hair follicles, helping to revive the follicles and keep them alive, so that new, healthy hair can grow. In addition, the proprietary NutriSol® formula contains ingredients to nourish the scalp and thicken existing hair as well as moisturizing emollients that eliminate dryness and itchy scalp commonly associated with hair-restoration products.

What makes Scalp Med® better than other Minoxidil treatments?
Scalp Med® has the following advantages over other Minoxidil†† treatments:

  • Patented NutriSol® pretreatment. This patented formula is exclusive to Scalp Med® and not available in any other hair regrowth line. It’s formulated to work in conjunction with Vitadil® and contains proprietary complexes that create an ideal scalp environment for new hair growth.
  • No sexual side effects. Unlike oral medications and other DHT inhibitors, Scalp Med® will NOT cause a decrease in sexual function.
  • No itchy scalp. The NutriSol® pretreatment formula contains specialized ingredients to prevent Minoxidil†† buildup and deeply hydrate the scalp, so there is never any irritation or itchiness, just a healthy scalp.
  • Clinical-strength formulations. Scalp Med®’s Vitadil®-5A and 2A treatment formulas use 5% Minoxidil†† for men and 2% Minoxidil†† for women. These are the exact levels used in clinical testing to ensure optimal results for men and women.
  • Because it works! Our “before and after” pictures show the true results of ACTUAL Scalp Med® customers! Many topical regrowth formulas out there either show only the “after” pictures, or dramatizations (which means the pictures are not showing the real results of actual users).
Does Scalp Med® work for everyone?

On our website, you can see many “before and after” pictures and video testimonials of successful Scalp Med® users showing their dramatic results. Of course, individual results will vary and depend on factors such as the area of the scalp where the hair loss is occurring and the amount of time that has gone by since hair loss began.

Scalp Med®’s active ingredient has been proven to regrow hair in living hair follicles on the vertex or top of the scalp. It will also thicken and strengthen the hair all over your head, including the remaining hairs of a receding hairline.

Using Scalp Med® as directed (applying twice daily), will maximize the potential to regrow your hair to the fullest extent possible.

The Vitadil® box indicates it is not intended for frontal baldness or a receding hairline. Why won't it work in these areas?

While the Vitadil® box does state that Scalp Med® is not intended for these areas, Scalp Med®’s active ingredient has been proven to regrow hair in living hair follicles on the vertex or top of the scalp. It will also thicken and strengthen the hair all over your head, including the remaining hairs of a receding hairline.

Vitadil® is not intended to be used by itself. Individual results will vary, especially when Vitadil® is used in conjunction with NutriSol® as directed.

Are those real pictures and video testimonials on your website?

Yes, those are real “before and after” pictures and testimonials of real Scalp Med® users on our website. Many other topical hair re-growth products show just the “after” pictures of their users, or, in some cases, dramatizations (which means the pictures are not showing the real results of actual users).

Also, have you heard about our $5,000.00 contest? Scalp Med® will pay you $5,000.00 for your Scalp Med® story, if you are chosen (click here for details). Several of the people you see on the website are contest winners.

Is Scalp Med® FDA registered/regulated?

Scalp Med®’s Vitadil®-5A and 2A treatment formulas use FDA-approved Minoxidil†† as opposed to Minoxidil sulfate found in many other hair re-growth lines.

What is NutriSol®?

Patented NutriSol® is our proprietary pretreatment formula that delivers nutrients, conditioning agents and moisturizing emollients including Retinol, Beta Sitosterol and Biotin that promote scalp health and create an ideal environment for new hair growth. NutriSol® is exclusive to Scalp Med® and is not available in any other hair re-growth or hair-thickening line.

What is the difference between your men’s and women’s treatments?

The difference between our men’s and women’s treatment formulas is the amount of Minoxidil†† in each. Our men’s formula contains 5% Minoxidil††, while our women’s formula contains 2% Minoxidil††. These are the ideal levels proven in clinical testing to stop hair loss and promote new hair growth.

I've heard that hair medications have sexual side effects. Does Scalp Med®?

Scalp Med® has absolutely no sexual side effects, unlike prescription hair re-growth products and other DHT inhibitors, which may cause a decrease in sexual function.

What is the shelf life of Scalp Med®?

The shelf life for all Scalp Med® products is approximately two years.

Where is Scalp Med® manufactured?

Scalp Med® products are 100% manufactured in laboratories in the United States.

Do you guarantee your product? Accept returns?

We certainly do. When you place your trust in us with something as important as your hair, we take that responsibility seriously. Every Scalp Med® product and order is backed by our 100% money-back satisfaction Guarantee†.

†If Scalp Med® fails in any way to live up to you expectations, you can return the empty bottles for a full refund. In many cases, you will be charged a small shipping fee, but you will never pay for any product that doesn’t give you the results you want and deserve.

What is the proper way to apply Scalp Med®?

Apply Scalp Med® twice daily. Apply first in the morning to dry or towel dry hair. Leave Scalp Med® on a minimum of 45 minutes before you shower or leave it on all day. Be sure to let Scalp Med® dry completely before applying any type of styling product.

At night, apply before bedtime, and allow it to dry completely before going to bed. Leave Scalp Med® on a minimum of 45 minutes and rinse before bed or leave it on all night. Remember, you are not spraying Scalp Med® on your hair, you are applying it to your scalp.

First, apply NutriSol®. Shake the bottle well, and place the nozzle in direct contact with your scalp in the thinning areas. Apply a total of 4 to 6 pumps, covering the entire top part of the scalp, stopping to gently massage the NutriSol® into your scalp after every 2 to 3 pumps to aid distribution.

Next, apply Vitadil®:

  • Customers with Vitadil® dropper
    Use the dropper to apply 1 milliliter of Vitadil® directly to your scalp, covering the same area where you applied the NutriSol® (see measurement on dropper tube). Massage during application to aid penetration to the hair follicles.
  • Customers with Vitadil® sprayer
    Shake the bottle well, and place the nozzle in direct contact with your scalp in the thinning areas. Apply a total of 6 pumps, covering the entire top part of the scalp, stopping to gently massage the Vitadil® into your scalp after every 2 pumps.

Make sure to wash your hands afterward with soap and water.

Should I use your product even if I haven't lost that much hair?

Hereditary hair loss is progressive, so responding early is the best way to keep a thick head of hair. If you currently have just a small region of hair loss, now is the best time to begin using Scalp Med®.

Is it possible to regrow hair on completely bald areas of the frontal scalp?

No. Once an area of the scalp is completely bald, the hair follicles in that area are no longer able to produce growing hair. No topical or oral hair regrowth treatment will bring this hair back. Scalp Med®’s active ingredient has been proven to regrow hair in living hair follicles on the vertex or top of the scalp. It will also thicken and strengthen the hair all over your head, including the remaining hairs of a receding hairline.

A good way to tell if Scalp Med® will work for you is to run your hand over the vertex of your scalp. If you have “fuzz” (or thin hair) in those areas, Scalp Med® will very likely regrow your hair (as the hair follicles are likely still alive).

Is Scalp Med® safe for all hair types?

Yes, after extensive clinical testing and research, Scalp Med® has been proven safe and effective for all hair types.

How long do I need to use Scalp Med®? What will happen if I stop?

Scalp Med® must be used continuously. Discontinuing treatment will completely reverse any new growth that you have experienced within 3 to 4 months after stopping use.

No hair re-growth product on the market, including Scalp Med®, cures hereditary hair loss. However, once you’ve grown your hair back, you can easily maintain your full hair regrowth by simply continuing use of Scalp Med® every day. After 12 months on the program, many Scalp Med® users are able to reduce their use of the product to once daily and still maintain their full head of hair (without hair loss resuming), but individual results will vary.

What happens if I miss an application or forget to use Scalp Med®?

If you miss applications, do not try to make up for this by increasing the frequency or amount of the recommended, twice-daily dosage. Simply resume your program as recommended.

Can I perm, color, or straighten my hair while using Scalp Med®?

Yes, none of these processes will interfere with Scalp Med®; however, they can damage and break hair, so we “healthy hair” people recommend that you subject your hair to a minimal amount of chemical processing or heat treatment.

Can I use Scalp Med® with my regular shampoo, conditioner, spray and other products?

Yes, it is safe to use Scalp Med® with other hair care products. However, we highly recommend that you try our specially formulated hair products for your daily cleansing and conditioning needs because they are specifically formulated for thinning hair.

Scalp Med® daily care and treatment products are designed to complement each other and work synergistically to improve scalp health. On the other hand, over-the-counter products often contain harmful ingredients such as sulfates and parabens that can damage hair and accelerate hair loss.

Remember also to completely dry your scalp and hair before applying Scalp Med®, and let Scalp Med® dry completely before applying styling products to your hair.

How long should I wait to wash my hair after applying Scalp Med®?

Wait 45 minutes after applying Scalp Med® before shampooing. OR you can apply Scalp Med® AFTER shampooing ― just make sure your hair is dry or towel-dried.

Can I use Scalp Med® if I’m pregnant/nursing?

We do not recommend using any topical hair re-growth products if you are pregnant or nursing.

I have a health problem, should I start/continue using Scalp Med®?

It’s very important to talk with your doctor if you have any medical condition before starting to use Scalp Med®. Make sure to mention to your doctor that the active ingredient in Scalp Med® is Vitadil®, which contains FDA-approved Minoxidil††. Also if you have any kind of health problem and are currently using Scalp Med®, you should immediately discontinue use and talk with your doctor to see if it is safe for you to continue to use the product or not.

How long will it take for my hair to grow/thicken? When can I expect to see results?

Your results will depend, to some extent, on the degree of your hair loss or hair thinning when you begin treatment as well as your unique skin chemistry, but generally 4 to 6 months is required to see significant results when used as directed.

Hair regrowth never happens overnight, but by strictly following the directions, you may see new growth in as little as 2 months. Your existing hair will be thicker and healthier, and in most cases you will start to see new hairs growing in. It’s very important that you are patient and that you use the product as directed and apply twice daily. Make it a part of your routine, just like brushing your teeth!

How will I know the product is working?

One of the first signs that Scalp Med® is working is that you will see some temporary shedding of hair during the first few weeks. You may see hair in the sink or your brush for the first four weeks of use, as new , healthier hairs grow in under the scalp, so don’t fret if you hair seems thinner at first. This is actually a positive sign, as it indicates that your hair is entering a new cycle of growth. This process begins with the shedding of thin and weak hair, which is released from the hair follicles. New, thicker and stronger hair can then begin to grow and over time as you continue to use the product as directed.

We also highly encourage you to take a picture of the bald area of your scalp before starting the Scalp Med® program, so you can see and measure your progress over time. Also, have you heard about our $5,000.00 contest? Scalp Med® will pay you $5,000.00 for your Scalp Med® story, if you are chosen (click here for details).

Does Scalp Med® cure hair loss?

There is no cure for hair loss. However, in most cases, Scalp Med® has been proven to re-grow your hair and will keep it from falling out again for as long as you use it.

What percent of people typically see results?

Each individual is unique, and results do vary from one individual to another. The amount of regrowth you will experience cannot be predicted. Some men and women do not experience any hair regrowth as a result of using this product. However, the vast majority of users experience positive results. In our consumer study, over 95% of users saw remarkable hair growth with Scalp Med®.*†

Are there any side effects?
Stop using and ask a doctor if you experience any of the following:

  • Chest pain
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Sudden, unexplained weight gain
  • Swelling in the hands and/or feet
  • Scalp irritation or redness
  • Unwanted facial hair growth
Does Scalp Med® get into the bloodstream?

Yes, a small amount of anything that you put onto your skin will be absorbed into the bloodstream, including Scalp Med®. However, Scalp Med® is chemically composed to reduce the amount that can actually enter into the blood and is considered safe when used as directed. Should you experience any side effects or other health problems, discontinue use and contact your physician.

Will more hair fall out when I start using it?

It might. You may see hair in the sink or your brush for the first four weeks of use, as new , healthier hairs grow in under the scalp, so don’t fret if you hair seems thinner at first. This is actually a positive sign, as it indicates that your hair is entering a new cycle of growth. This process begins with the shedding of thin and weak hair, which is released from the hair follicles. New, thicker and stronger hair can then begin to grow and will continue filling in over time as you continue to use the product as directed.

What happens if I stop using Scalp Med? Will I lose more hair?

Possibly. Hair regrowth products treat the causes of hair loss, but they don’t cure it. When you stop treatment the underlying cause remains and the effect will most likely be hair loss. Maintenance should be considered after any hair loss treatment. For Scalp Med, we recommend moving from 2 treatments a day to 1 treatment a day to maintain a healthy scalp.

What makes Panthenol-DX® Follicle Detoxifier unique?

Over time, your hair follicles accumulate natural oils, toxins, and environmental pollutants that no shampoo can remove. Scalp Med®’s Panthenol-Dx® is specifically designed to instantly dissolve and remove this build up, improving the general health of your scalp while clearing the way for Scalp Med®’s medicine to penetrate into the hair follicles and help grow thicker, healthier hair. Apply twice a week before shampooing.

Why is your shampoo better than store-bought shampoos?

Scalp Med® Phyto-Pu̅r Shampoo is specially formulated for thinning hair and contains three types of proteins and bonding agents that repair your hair’s natural keratin, which creates healthier, stronger hair. Our shampoo is also free of several harsh chemicals typically found in store-bought shampoos, including Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) and 1, 4-dioxane. These chemicals are a concern because they may actually be contributing to your hair loss.

What are the benefits of the Cortex Enlarger Thickening Spray?

Scalp Med®’s Cortex Enlarger thickens your hair the first time you use it. Unlike hair thickeners that coat and weigh down your hair, our Cortex Enlarger Thickening Hairspray is designed to penetrate the cuticle and temporarily swell the cortex to add instant fullness to thinning hair. One application lasts all day, so your hair can look fuller and thicker as it grows.

My nozzle on the NutriSol® bottle is clogged. What should I do?

The product runs down my face when I apply it. What should I do?

Apply the product a little slower to the bald areas and gently rub the solution into your scalp immediately after applying. This should prevent the solution from running.
