Minoxidil is a very common medicine used for treatment of hair loss especially in men. One major drawback caused by Minoxidil is the dryness that develops on the scalp and the hair post application. Naturally, people will have a tendency to apply something to retain the moisture of hair and scalp.

According to skin experts, it is advisable to apply hair oil atleast half an hour after the application of Minoxidil so that the medicine absorption is not hindered by oil. Make sure your hair and scalp are completely dry before applying this medicine. Usually Minoxidil is used as bed time application on the scalp. If you apply oil on the scalp before applying Minoxidil, the oil will form a barrier which restricts penetration of Minoxodil.
