ScalpMed is a hair loss treatment system that claims it can help both men and women regain a fuller head of hair. Its manufacturer alleges it can deal with this problem at every stage, reducing thinning hair and nourishing the scalp for stronger hair, without sexual side effects. The aim of this review of ScalpMed is to furnish you with the facts so you can make the right purchasing decision for your situation.
ScalpMed’s system consists of three products: Nourish:Step1, Re-Grow:Step2 and Grow Herbal Hair Supplement.
ScalpMed Nourish:Step1 contains:
ScalpMed Re-Grow:Step2 contains
- 5% Minoxidil
We were only able to find a more comprehensive list of ingredients on the products’ Amazon page but it is unclear there which of the three products contains which of the ingredients.
Minoxidil itself is a vasodilator. It is thought that it may dilate the scalp’s blood vessels, increasing blood flow and strengthening hair follicles, although the precise process has not been confirmed.
Apply Step1 twice per day. Place the nozzle directly on your scalp where your hair is thin. Spray a total of four to six pumps and massage it in to your scalp after every two to three pumps to spread it around. In the morning and leave it for 45 minutes before you shower or leave it all day long. Let it dry completely before you apply a styling product. In the evening, apply and let it dry completely before you sleep. Allow it to remain intact for 45 minutes then rinse before bed or leave it on all night.
Apply Step2, either one ml of the drops or six pumps of the spray to the same area you applied Step1 and massage into the scalp. Then wash your hands with soap and water.

ScalpMed Review: The Bottom Line
ScalpMed is one among the many baldness remedies on the market. It has a money-back guarantee that shields consumers against loss (other than the shipping costs, which are not cheap). Beyond its introductory offer it, suffers from unjustifiably high pricing and, at least for the men’s product, unsatisfactory reviews and it is not simple to use. These are are enough reason for a potential buyer to look for other options.
