answer 2
I would not use anything without a safety seal however you could call the product maker directly and ask if they package with a safety seal if no try it out you should probably smell the product first and do a skin patch test to make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients. Test a piece of fabric to see if ingredients start to breakdown the fabric do that before testing it on your skin.

The Box say to just put it on after you shampoo. You use this product morning and night so, I'd say just to use it after the shower. Also, when you receive the box, there will be more detailed instructions. I hope this helps.

I bought this product for my husband about a month and a half ago. We do not notice any sort of strong or lasting smell. I hope this helps.

answer 2
The product is unscented. In other words, the manufacturer has not added any fragrance to make it smell different/better/like flowers, etc.

Having said that, the product contains alcohol and has a slight odor of alcohol when you open the bottle. Due to the small amount that is applied and the fact that most shampoos have added fragrance, it is very unlikely that anyone would be able to detect the smell of alcohol over the shampoo.

If you shampoo every day, apply it right away after shampooing and then one more time (twice a day) about 12 hours later. The product should stay in your scalp at least 4 hours, according to some internt articles.

The Equate Extra Strength For Men Hair Regrowth Treatment clearly states on the packaging that it may not be used for Women. This product contains 5% minoxidil.

Women can use the Equate Extra Strength For Women Hair Regrowth Treatment which contains 2% minoxidil.

Question

Can I apply the product Overnight?

Can I apply the product Overnight? And, in the AM, twice a week, use Nizoral?

Also, can I use the Vinegar Rinse I ususally use, (as opposed to shampoo, which I may use every ten days or so), on those days I don't use Nizoral?

Yes, leaving in overnight is fine. I apply twicw a day, AM and PM. If scalp itches at all, I blend the products for Men and Women. Don't know about vinegar.

answer 2
with other brands of this product instructions are that it's okay to have on overnight but be sure it dries on your scalp before going to bed (I guess so none of it drips onto your face/eyes when you hit the pillow)

The product is designed to be used twice a day. So, of course you would be using it overnight (and over-day). As far as vinegar rinse is concerned... never heard of it and can't imagine what effect it would have. I'm a nurse (RN) and stay as far away from oral hormonal treatments as I can, so I'll opt out of commenting on those treatments... they scare me.
