INFORMATION

Minoxidil

Harveys minoxidil is a 5% topical solution containing Minoxidil which acts on the scalp to help hair growth in balding areas, acting in a similar way to Regaine®.

It can be used to treat hair loss related to age or family history. Re-growth of hair may be seen between 2-4 months, and regular use is required to keep the new hair growth.

Trials of 5% Minoxidil concluded that it was very effective in 15.9% of patients, effective in 47.8% of patients & moderately effective in 20.6% of patients.

Available either as a single 60ml spray, a Travel Pack or Triple Product Pack.

Anti-hair loss Shampoo

Energising anti-hair loss shampoo. The invigorating and vascularising action energises the hair, leaving a long lasting sensation of freshness and wellbeing.

Specially formulated Harveys Anti-hair loss shampoo is highly effective at cleaning the scalp of excess sebum and other debris. It delicately cleanses your hair, leaving it soft, manageable and easy to comb.

Anti-hair loss Treatment lotion

Lotion for thinning and falling hair, designed to maintain the natural equilibrium of hair & scalp. Particularly suitable as an anti-dandruff and excess sebum treatment, often connected with hair loss.

When used regularly, it has been shown to arrest or substantially reduce excessive hair loss. It also helps to prevent dandruff and to slow down its formation, combats itching & leaves a sensation of freshness.

Active ingredients

Harveys Hair Anti-hair loss shampoo and lotion contain active ingredients which are effective in the prevention of hair loss, and help resolve this problem by acting selectively on some of the causes shown below.

The products have been formulated to delay or reduce hair loss and strengthen the existing hair structure.

Cinnamon & Ginger
Extract of Cinnamon and Ginger
Problem: The reduction of blood microcirculation in the scalp

Extract of Cinnamon and Ginger help maintain good perfusion (the nutritive delivery of arterial blood to a capillary bed in tissue) at follicle level by a stimulating and vasodilatory action, which can improve the intake of nutrients.

Harveys hair loss lotion
Rosemary essential oil
Problem: Premature aging of the follicle

Environmental and chemical factors can lead to the production of free radicals which, in the long term, influence the activity of the follicle. The strong anti-oxidant activity of Rosemary essential oil protects and maintains the follicle in good condition.

Vitamins
Group B vitamins - Vitamin B6 and Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5)
Problem: Thinning and weakening of hair

Clinical studies show that vitamin B6 is able to improve the appearance and texture of the hair and contributes, and is closely involved in association with vitamin B5, to the activity of the follicle, to help regulate its life cycle, promoting growth of healthy and strong hair.


Vitamin B6, Salicylic Acid, Undecyl Alcohol, mild detergent Base
Problem: Presence of sebum

There are indications that sebum may be one of the main culprits contributing to hair loss. Some metabolites contained in sebum are able to disintegrate the inner epithelial sheath, producing an adverse effect on growth hair. These ingredients are essential in furnishing the hair with a set of stimuli capable of significantly improving the state of vitality and health. They have a strong normalizing and rebalancing action, whilst avoiding undue depletion of the hair stem.

The active ingredients in both the Anti-hair loss shampoo & Treatment lotion are carefully chosen so that regular use improves the general state of the hair and scalp. As the active ingredients in both products are the same, using them in combination creates a synergy of action maximising their effectiveness.

FAQs

Will I need to use the products in the long term?
Yes. The products work together against dandruff and hair loss. The shampoo cleans and conditions the scalp, and helps to remove dandruff, and the lotion acts to slow and arrest hair loss. Harveys minoxidil can be used to regrow hair in bald or balding areas.

The causes of hair loss are generally ongoing, which means that and hereditary and other factors will remain for life.


Why do you have two different products to combat hair loss: Anti-Hair loss lotion & Minoxidil?
The Anti-hair loss lotion is aimed at individuals who are, or have been, experiencing premature hair loss. This product is not designed to regrow hair on bald or balding areas, but simply to slow or arrest the process of hair loss. It is best suited to individuals who want to achieve this without using a medicinal product such as Minoxidil.

Minoxidil is designed to regrow hair on bald or balding areas where the hair has already been significantly lost. Although in the form supplied (5% solution) minoxidil is now off-prescription, it is nonetheless a medicinal product which should be used in controlled doses. Harveys minoxidil 5% is equivalent to Regaine® (Rogaine®) extra strength and acts in exactly the same way.

Both products can effectively be used together and further details on this are supplied in the leaflet accompanying Harveys minoxidil.


Do you have to use the Anti-Hair loss lotion and/or Minoxidil every day?
In order for the active components in the lotion and minoxidil to remain effective and combat the ongoing causes of hair loss, it is essential that they are used on a daily basis.

Are the products also suitable for women?
The shampoo and anti-hair loss lotion are suitable for women. Our 5% minoxidil product is for use only by men. It is possible to obtain a 2% Minoxidil solution for women from high street retailers, but we do not have this in our product line.

However, although the shampoo and anti-hair loss lotion were originally developed to combat male hair loss problems, the active ingredients are also effective in women, so that these products can also be used by women.


Do the products work the same way for all men?
The effectiveness of the products of course will depend on many factors which can contribute to increased and/or premature hair loss. Factors such as stress, environmental toxins, vitamin deficiencies, etc can have a negative impact on the problem. However, long-term usage and experience with these products has shown them to be extremely effective on a very wide range of clients subject to a variety of negative factors.

I have been using the products for some time but no hair has grown back. Does it not work for everyone?
It is important to be clear that the anti-hair loss lotion and shampoo are not meant to be hair restorers. The primary objective is to slow and arrest hair loss. However, as a result of the improved condition of the scalp and hair and strengthening of existing hair follicles, there may be some apparent improvement in hair density or bulk.

Harveys minoxidil should be used if the aim is to try to regrow hair on a bald or balding area. Minoxidil is the only topical product currently available which has been proven to regrow hair. It should be noted, however, that not all men will experience re-growth.Harveys minoxidil 5% is equivalent to Regaine® (Rogaine®)extra strength and acts in exactly the same way.


Do I really have to wash my hair every day?
Many men avoid washing their hair regularly when they experience premature or unusual hair loss as they think this loss is accelerated by frequent washing. The reverse is in fact true, and the hair should be washed regularly to keep the scalp clean and receptive to the action of the hair loss lotion treatments.

However, it may not be necessary to wash you hair every day as the Anti-hair loss lotion and/or minoxidil are still effective when applied to a dry scalp. Much will depend on the overall condition of your scalp, especially if you suffer from dandruff.


Apart from the products, can I use other products such as gel or hair spray?
Yes, after using the products, wait for a short time to allow the product to be absorbed; then use your styling product.

Please see the product leaflets, particularly for minoxidil, for more information on how to use other styling products in conjunction with Harveys products.


Can the Anti-Hair loss lotion also be used on dry hair or is it absolutely necessary to wash the hair before application?
The lotion can also be used on dry hair, without prior washing. It should be applied directly to the scalp and massaged in. As the lotion is absorbed into the scalp quickly, you can then style your hair as usual. The alcohol content may cause brief tingling of the scalp, which will disappear quickly. Make sure you avoid contact with the eyes.

Harveys minoxidil should be used on a dry scalp only as any wetness can inhibit absorption of the active ingredient. If a hair dryer is used to dry your hair it should be done before the application of minoxidil as use after application will tend to evaporate the product before it can properly be absorbed.


Why should I use Harveys minoxidil rather than Regaine® (Rogaine®)?
Price! Regaine is a great product and is the original branded topical Minoxidil, but as with many branded medicinal products (for example, aspirin, paracetamol, etc) there is a premium to be paid for the brand name. When you buy a packet of aspirin from a high street pharmacy, you can buy the retailer's own product or pay more for a well-known brand. However, they both work exactly the same way and have exactly the same effect.

The same is true of Harveys minoxidil. It works in exactly the same way as Regaine and will produce the same results, but you don't have to pay the price premium. Harveys minoxidil is a premium product manufactured in North America, so you can be assured of its quality.
