Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Menthogen frequently asked questions page. If you do not find the answer to the question you are looking for please reach out and ask us using one of our contact channels.
What is the best way to use Menthogen?
To stop scalp itch caused by your helmet or any other cause Menthogen should always be used on a thoroughly clean scalp. This is because natural scalp and hair oils and any styling products such as hair sprays, gels and mouses may diminish the beneficial effect of your Menthogen.
We strongly recommend using Menthogen Anti-Irritant Shampoo in conjunction with Menthogen Anti-Itch Scalp Spray. Menthogen Anti-Irritant Shampoo is a premium grade shampoo which protects the scalp's natural lipid barrier whilst gently cleansing your hair and scalp.
You will be unlikely to find a comparable quality in your local salon, pharmacy or store.
How often should Menthogen be applied to my scalp?
Menthogen can be applied as often as is required. It can be applied prior to wearing headgear to instantly benefit from its cooling, soothing and refreshing qualities - or after wearing a helmet. Also if you use Menthogen regularly before the day ends, it will help to create a superb scalp condition, it will reduce the rate of telogen (your natural rate of hair-loss).
How long will a 30ml bottle of Menthogen last me?
We would expect a 30ml bottle of Menthogen may last up 45 days.
What is the shelf-life of Menthogen? How long would one bottle last unused?
Can I use Menthogen for the long term?
Absolutely. It may be used for as long as you require.
Can I use Menthogen on my coloured or chamically treated hair?
Menthogen is designed to be used on your scalp rather than your hair. But of course, unless you do not have hair, contact with hair closest to your scalp is going to occur. Our tests - on professionally chemically treated* hair concluded no alteration of the colour or the condition of the hair.
That said, although Menthogen only contains ingredients that are kind to your scalp - because it is impossible to gauge the individual condition of each user's hair, it is not right for us to make a complete guarantee that you will not see a slight effect on colour.
It is strongly recommended using an intensive conditioner prior to application near chemically treated hair.
Is Menthogen a natural product?
Menthogen's ingredients come from natural sources. The herbal tinctures have different properties from blocking DHT action on the hair bulb to deodorising the hair/scalp and stimulating hair growth.
Does Menthogen contain any fragrance?
Menthogen does not have any fragrance added. The 'freshness' comes from the ingredients therein.
How will Menthogen work to stop scalp itchiness?
Every bottle of Menthogen contains a scientifically advanced and trichologically prepared formulation of blood capillary and hair bulb (root) stimulators that have been combined with phyto-hormones (these are natural substances that at low concentration, influence hair growth).
If you use Menthogen daily this will counteracts the effects of androgens which contribute to both male and female hair loss, therefore Menthogen encourages the production of a better quality, thicker hair strand. See more information on the science of Menthogen here.
Is it usual for my scalp to feel a slight tingling?
Absolutely. This is Menthogen's stimulating blood supply to the scalp - this is what helps to stop itchiness.
I've noticed some my scalp has a pinky redness. Is that right?
Absolutely. Do not worry; this indicates that Menthogen is stimulating blood supply to the scalp and its hair follicles. As a test you may spray a small amount of Menthogen on the back of your hand and wait a few minutes. Slight pinky-redness appears where the Menthogen gets to work.
I'm bald I don't like or want the temporary redness. What else can I use?
You can use Airhead Helmet Cool Spray. This is also an anti-pruritic (anti itch).
Can it really help hair loss?
Yes. The benefits of each of the compounds that are contained in Menthogen are renowned for their effectiveness in reducing hair loss and promoting thicker, healthier hair.
Can Menthogen really help my hair loss and make my hair grow faster?
Yes to the helping hair loss part of the question. Menthogen does three things in respect of hair loss:
i) it promoted a healthy supply of nourishing blood to hair follicles
ii) it promotes the conditions for thicker healthier hair growth by reducing the telogen part of the hair's cycle and increasing the anogen part of the hair's cycle.
iii) it improves the condition of the hair and scalp per se.
Though some individuals report that their hair 'seems to grow faster' when using Menthogen there could be other factors at play in their individual circumstances.
Can my child use Menthogen?
It would not be strongly recommended for a person under the age of 12 to use Menthogen.
Can I buy and sell Menthogen or buy it for use in my clinic?
Resellers, distributers should read the Menthogen resellers page and make contact.
*Hair chemically treated by professionals in salon as opposed to any single off the shelf product sold with 'professional' being implicit in its branding.
