What is Strut Women’s Hair Formula?

Strut Women’s Hair Formula is a pharmacist and physician formulated mixture of pharmaceutical-grade ingredients that may help reduce hair loss and increase hair growth in women when used regularly and as prescribed.

What is a compounded medication?

A compounded medication is a prescription that is mixed up specifically for you based on your doctor’s request for a specific strength and dosage form. Compounded medications are not manufactured, but made in compounding pharmacies that follow a formula ‘recipe’ customized to your condition to create an individualized medication for you.

How does Strut Women’s Hair Formula work?

Strut Women’s Hair Formula contains a combination of prescription and nonprescription ingredients that target hair loss prevention and potential hair regrowth. Spironolactone is an aldosterone receptor antagonist and may help prevent hair loss by inhibiting androgenic hormones in the scalp area that increase hair shedding. Minoxidil is a vasodilator that may help reduce shedding, increase hair growth, and thicken hair follicles. Tretinoin helps the medication penetrate through the scalp to get to where it needs to go.

How should I use Strut Women’s Hair Formula?

Use the medicine exactly as directed. Using more medicine or applying it more often than prescribed will not make it work any faster, and may increase side effects. Do not take by mouth. Avoid getting this medication in your eyes or mouth, if this does occur, rinse with water. Apply once daily at night to dry, clean scalp, and wash hands after application. Wash any non-treatment area that this medication may have accidentally come into contact with to avoid unwanted hair growth. Allow to dry thoroughly and wash off in the morning, or after at least 4 hours.

What are the common side effects of Strut Women’s Hair Formula?

This is a topically applied medication, so very little of the medication will get into systemic circulation and whole body side effects should be rare. The most common side effects may include: Itching, burning, flaking, dryness, scaling, changes in the color or texture of your hair, or irritation at the application site
