Questions and Answers
Here you can read about the most frequently asked questions
- Why are there numerous short hairs
growing on my scalp?
The hardening and shrinking that occurs around the hair
follicle stunts hair growth. You can compare this to a large
plant growing in a small pot. Hair tries to grow as normal
but due to hair follicle hardening, it can only grow a few
millimeters. Many people believe that the short hair on
the scalp is new hair! This is not true. Such hair is in
fact the first to disappear. Aminexil takes care that this
does not happen and encourages this type hair to grow back
- Will my hair become thicker?
Once the short hair starts to grow back, your hair count
Consequently, you will notice that you have a thicker/fuller
head of hair. A strand of hair, which previously had a thickened
collagen structure, develops a 'thinner' structure. A normal
hair is approximately 0,06 mm thick. If influenced by collagen
thickening the structure also becomes thicker (0,05 or 0,04
mm). Once you start using Aminexil, your hair will be restored
to its normal thickness. Your hair is strong once again.
- Has Aminexil any side effects?
No, absolutely none. Dermatologists worldwide have been
testing this product for 10 years. This is your guarantee
that it is a safe product to use.
- What does 'seasonal influences' on hair
Some people suffer from increased hair loss during the summer
or winter- time. Women are especially prone to seasonal
influences. Summer time hair loss is due to a transition
period between little and much sunlight. In winter the opposite
happens. These changes jointly affect one's hormone cycle.
The following is a summation of seasonal influences: the
role of sunlight (in providing vitamin d), the natural changing
of the hormone cycle, and the stress associated with seasonal
change. Research into Aminexil takes these seasonal influences
into consideration. The conclusion is that Aminexil prevents
extra hair loss associated with the above mentioned factors
during these times. The influences associated with seasonal
change have no effect on long term hair loss, therefore,
you don't have to take these changes into account.
- Aminexil versus Propecia?
Momentarily, two products are available on the market, which
fight hair loss. One is called Aminexil and the other is
named Finasteride. Both products strive for the same goal,
namely the prevention of the hardening around the hair follicle.
Both products display huge differences in use and side effects.
Intensive dermatological research into the Aminexil product
proves that no side effects exist, whereas, the Finasteride
product produces definite side effects. Propecia is taken
in tablet form, whereas Aminexil is a liquid, which is applied
to the scalp. Aminexil starts to work directly on the hair
follicle. Finasteride works on and influences the hormone.
In the end, both products produce the same success rate.
- Can pregnancy affect hair loss?
Yes, during the pregnancy period hormones undergo considerable
changes in a woman's body. It is very normal to suffer from
more than average hair loss after childbirth. For a period
of 6 weeks prior to giving birth no hair loss takes place.
Hair loss begins after childbirth. Hormones control the
hair growth cycle, hair loss and transition phase. When
a woman is pregnant, she does not lose as much hair as usual.
Prolonged hair loss after childbirth means that the hormone
cycle is disturbed in some way. This can lead to continued
hair loss. To prevent this we advise using Aminexil. Aminexil
restores the cycle and stimulates hair cell production.
Have you excessive hair loss and given birth more than three
months ago then you should use Aminexil.
- Can baldness be due to external causes?
A skin disease may cause baldness. You may see patches and
circles on the scalp where no hair is growing. Waste no
time and seek a dermatologist's advice. He/she can recognize
skin diseases and help you. Other reasons for excessive
hair loss may be narcosis, chemotherapy or by using wrong
products (think about skin allergies). Aminexil treats this
type of hair loss. You may start using Aminexil after completing
the last chemotherapy course of treatment.
- Will Health Insurance Schemes cover
No, unfortunately. Almost every treatment is compensated
by the National Health, but as this particular treatment
is considered 'cosmetic' it is not covered.
- Can I use gel during an Aminexil treatment?
Yes, you may apply gel, wax and hair spray to your hair.
What ever you have done to your hair in the past, you may
continue doing so. Aminexil is designed to be quick and
simple to use. Do not, however, use cream products that
require rinsing and two-in-one products (for example, Wash
- Are two treatments adequate in one
year or should I use more?
Research has shown that two treatments are adequate. This
is enough to prevent hair loss. Use 42 bottles for 42 consecutive
days / 6 weeks. It is possible to use a further treatment
'in between' the twice-yearly advised Aminexil treatment.
Another alternative is the use of a lotion containing actifeur
7. This lotion stimulates the hair follicle's nutrition
as well as its cell division.
- Dandruff causes hair loss?
No, but in less common cases the greasy scales stick to
the hair causing it (hair) to lift from the scalp. Psoriasis
patients suffer from this type of scaly eruptions. Normally
speaking, dandruff does not cause falling hair.
