HOW TO USE:
Remove the cap. To remove, push down and turn in direction of the arrows on the cap.
Part hair in the area of hair thinning/loss.
Squeeze the rubber bulb and insert the dropper into the bottle. Release the bulb, allowing the dropper to fill to the 1 mL line. If the level of the solution is above the 1 mL line, squeeze the extra amount back into the bottle.
Place the tip near the part of the scalp you want to treat and gently squeeze the bulb to gradually release the solution. To prevent the solution from running off the scalp, apply a small amount at a time.
After each use attach the dropper to the bottle to make it child-resistant by turning it clockwise until tightly closed
Apply 1 mL two times a day directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area. Do not use more. Spread the liquid evenly over the hair loss area. If you use your fingers, wash hands with soap and water immediately.
Each bottle should last about one month, if used as directed.
