Hair loss topical treatments are widely prevalent and come in oral tablet, foam, liquid solution, and gel form. However, the application of these topical products are pretty similar.
Here at Strut Health, we offer a prescription combination hair loss gel for women containing Minoxidil (which is the active ingredient in Rogaine,) and a men’s Finasteride hair loss gel which can be combined with Minoxidil. Gels tend to be a little easier to apply than foams and solutions but all hair loss topicals are simple to use.
In this article, we’ll go over how to apply Minoxidil hair loss gel (aka generic Rogaine) and Finasteride gel.

Minoxidil (aka Rogaine) is widely used as a topical hair loss treatment. Here at Strut Health, we combine Minoxidil with other prescription-strength ingredients to optimize hair growth and minimize the side effects compared to oral tablets for hair loss.
An important thing to note when using any hair loss topical treatment, you must remain consistent (and patient) in order to see results. With any over-the-counter or prescription-strength gels, it may take 2 to 4 months to begin seeing results. For the full results, it can take up to 6-12 months. Learn more about Minoxidil for women.
*Please consult your specific product’s directions or doctor’s instructions to avoid any misuse.
Strut Health advises using the product at night, sleeping with it on, and washing it off in the morning. This allows an absorption time of around 8 hours. At least allow 4 hours.
Finasteride is commonly used as a prescription oral hair loss medication. However, as of 2020, our Strut Health pharmacy team has formulated this powerful prescription into a topical combination gel that may help reduce hair loss and increase hair growth in men.
Our unique custom formula combines prescription and non-prescription ingredients to help maximize your hair loss treatment. Learn more about why this new topical hair loss treatment is so awesome.
Even with the strength of Finasteride gel -- these things take time. It may take 2 to 4 months to begin seeing results. Remember to stay consistent in order to see results.
We recommend that you use this product at night, get some beauty sleep, and wash off the gel in the morning. To avoid product build-up and skin irritation, make sure to wash your hair daily while using a topical hair loss treatment like Rogaine, Minoxidil, or Finasteride gel.
Products like Rogaine have certainly been around the block and have worked well for many years.
However, here at Strut Health, we’re always looking for ways to improve our patient outcomes -- which is why we’ve created unique compound hair loss products. Our formulas aim to maximize hair growth and minimize the side effects of hair loss products.
