I have been using a formula of 12% minoxodil and 5% azailic

Customer Question

I have been using a formula of 12% minoxodil and 5% azailic acid for 3 months now and am seeing hair regrowth, albeit mostly colourless. I have another 3 month's worth of cream to go and will continue to use it as it seems to be working. However, at a cost of £500 sterling for 6 month's supply, it is rather expensive.I know that there are other creams on the market, which have the same solution and are considerably cheaper. Please would you be able to recommend a less expensive version, that is proven to be effective?Paul
