Minoxidil only partly fulfilled its promise
Minoxidil was developed as a blood pressure lowering medicine and has shown to have a useful side effect: it stimulates hair growth. In 1988 the hair growth lotion Rogaine came on the market as active ingredient Minoxidil. Rogaine became the first officially FDA-approved and proven hair growth product on the market.
Minoxidil can only dissolve well in a large amount of alcohol and polypropylene glycol, so there is a lot of alcohol in Minoxidil lotion. These amounts of solvents are harmful to the scalp and this often leads to irritation. In addition, Minoxidil has other side effects such as heart problems, headache, breast formation, poor vision, fluid retention and acne. This poor combination of side effects and harmful solvents means that many doctors do not like to prescribe Minoxidil, since there are also alternatives such as Nanoxidil.
Because Minoxidil is a medicine (with the side effect of hair growth), Minoxidil is usually provided through pharmacies and may not be sold through web shops, for example. This also applies to hair growth stimulating lotions containing Minoxidil, such as Foligain.F5 Foam Minoxidil 5%, Foligain.P2 Minoxidil 2%, Regenepure Minoxidil 5%, Foligain.N5 and P5 Minoxidil 5% and Foligain.D5.
Nanoxidil lotions can be bought freely as a cosmetic product. This is in contrast to lotions with Minoxidil, since Minoxidil is a registered medicine that can only be sold by pharmacies. Nanoxidil is therefore a good alternative to Minoxidil.
What is Nanoxidil?
Nanoxidil is a molecule specially developed to increase the effectiveness against hair loss and to minimize the occurrence of side effects, compared to the well-known Minoxidil. Nanoxidil is available in the Spectral.DNC-N lotion from DS Laboratories. In addition to Nanoxidil, this formula contains a variaty of ingredients that improve hair growth and promote the health of the scalp. The usage of Nanoxidil has far fewer side effects. For people who experience side effects from Minoxidil, switching to Nanoxidil is a very good option.
Spectral.DNC-N with 5% Nanoxodil is therefore a good alternative for lotions with 2% or 5% Minoxidil. Spectral.DNC-N with Nanoxidil can be ordered in our webshop.
A breakthrough in hair growth lotions
In 2011, DS Laboratories launched the Spectral.DNC-N with 5% Nanoxidil. DNC-N has since proven to be an effective hair growth lotion . The effect has been demonstrated in a clinical study and the popularity of DNC-N is very high.
The DNC-N lotion counteracts all the annoying disadvantages of Minoxidil:
- The chance of side effects is much smaller
- The lotion is non-greasy and absorbs quickly in the scalp
- It contains a negligible amount of solvents
- It is also suitable for women
- In addition to Nanoxidil, the lotion contains several other active substances that improve hair growth, such as Adenosine. A better effect on hair growth can therefore be expected.
The formula of the Nanoxidil lotion Spectral.DNC-N contains a 5% concentration of Nanoxidil and a number of other ingredients that can stimulate hair growth such as Aminexil, Adenosine, procyanidin B-2 and copper peptides. Spectral.DNC-N also contains nanosomes to ensure that the lotion is absorbed as effectively as possible in the scalp and hair follicles.
In a study conducted among more than 250 people for 1 year, the efficacy of Spectral.DNC-N has been proven:
- 93% saw results
- 83% saw new hair growth (measured by the amount per cm2)
- 80% saw significant improvement (according to medical evaluation)
The effect of DNC-N has been measured in a study. About 50 hairs were pulled out of the head to examine the hair roots. The hair roots show the phase in which the hairs are. Normally 15% of the hairs are in the resting phase. With hereditary hair loss, the hairs stay in the resting phase for a longer period of time, so that more hairs are in the resting phase at the same time.
The study showed that normally 23% of the hairs on the top of the head were in the resting phase. After 4 months of using Spectral.DNC-N, the percentage of hairs in the resting phase had fallen sharply, to a very low value of 10%. So the hair grew much more than before.
The experiences with DNC-N
The Hair Growth Specialist sees that DNC-N has a large number of loyal users. Many users indicate that it has a positive effect. It starts with a clear reduction in hair loss, which continues over the months to seeing new hairs grow. The frequency and duration of use are very important here. Spectral.DNC-N ensures, among other things, that the hairs sit longer in the growth phase and shorter in the resting phase. This increases hair growth.
Spectral.DNC-N with 5% Nanoxidil is therefore a good alternative for lotions with 2% or 5% Minoxidil.
