Minoxidil Severe Itching
I have a dry scalp which itches severe after washing hair. I have hair loss too. I'm planning to use 5% Minoxidil. Can I use Tgel and minox together?
Can use both: T-gel can be used once to twice per week. While Minoxidil must be used twice per day. I can't say if you will have any problems with using them both using that schedule.
