I am back with a review of another hair product. Again, like Cantharidine hair oil, I have been using Mintop Hair Fall Solution since 11 years now and it has really helped me a lot in controlling my hair fall. Before going any further, let me clarify that I am no expert on hair fall nor I am a doctor, and the review is completely based on my personal experience with the product. Mintop is from Dr. Reddy’s and is available in 2% and 5% solutions. 2% is recommended for women and 5% for men I believe. I am using 2% solution.
During my 12th class, I went through a severe hair fall phase and tried everything, but nothing seemed to work, finally fed up, I visited my dermatologist and he recommended this to me and I have been using it since then along with some vitamin tablets.
Mintop comes in cardboard packaging which I threw away long time back and the bottle itself is made up of glass, but quite sturdy. Over the years, I have never faced any issue with the bottle even though I often have this with me when I am travelling out of country, no spilling, leaking or breakage.
It comes with a dropper attached as shown. The normal prescription would be to use solution twice a day morning and night, 1 ml each time and not exceeding 2 ml per day. The solution is transparent in color and exactly like water. If kept outside for a long time, it will evaporate. So, once you have taken out you have to be quick to use it.
This needs to be applied ONLY on scalp and not to hair. Do not apply it on hair. The duration to be applied to see visible effects on hair, i.e., reduction in hair fall and growth of new hair, is around a month, but the effects are definitely visible, at least they are for me.
It comes with a list of precautions and one should follow it. I have never faced any irritation or allergies on my scalp due to this. If applied regularly for a month, one can definitely see visible reduction in hair fall and also texture of the hair increases. When the doctor prescribed this to me, he suggested not to use it with oil. When I asked, he said no specific reason, but he advised to just avoid using oil and mintop together.
This is a dermatological product and ideally should be used only when prescribed by a doctor, but it is available in all medical shops without a prescription as well. I would suggest to first check with your doctor and then only start the usage of this. Also, Mintop does have alcohol, so may not suit sensitive skin.
I don’ really have any complaints about this as its a medical product and works well for me, but please note everyone has different hair conditions and one which works for me may not work for you, so don’t get disheartened, but get in touch with your dermatologist.
Hair fall has many causes from genetic to irregular eating habbits, anemia , deficiency of calcium and vitamin D, etc. It is important that we maintain a healthy and balanced diet if we want any medication to work and drink lots of water.
Price: Rs. 180 for 2% solution.
IMBB Rating: 4/5 , works well for in reducing hair fall and over a period of time also helps in regrowing of hair.
Hope this review was helpful to all who wanted to know more about Mintop 🙂
