  • Guaranteed Authentic
  • More than minoxidil alone, this high-performance breakthrough delivers the most aggressive, powerful, and effective topical treatment to retain and regrow hair because it fuses a broad spectrum of clinically proven compounds.  In a cream base for easy application without dripping, Spectral DNC-L contains research-grade minoxidil, plus 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, arginine, retinol, Aminexil, and more.
  • This coordinated attack against baldness means that Spectral DNC-L can protect against damage, slow hair loss, improve follicle health, and grow new hair longer, thicker, and faster than any other product. So you get to keep the hair you have, regrow the hair you lost, and live the lifestyle you really want!
  • Spectral DNC-L has the following ingredients:
  • Minoxidil:  Starts with highly effective research-grade 5% minoxidil because, as the first drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to treat androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness), it remains the best-known and most widely used.
  • Arginine:  Helps to strengthen and feed hair follicles because it contains the amino acid arginine, a metabolic precursor of nitric oxide, an important vasodilator and mediator of cutaneous cell function.
  • 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors:  Deploys three potent compounds that inhibit the activity of 5-alpha-reductase because that enzyme converts testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which damages hair follicles. These extracts are olive (verbascoside), saw palmetto (serenoa repens), and flax seed (secoisolariciresinol diglucoside).
  • Procyanidins. Spectral.DNC-L contains procyanidins, flavanols derived naturally from apples, because the latest research indicates they restore the hairline nearly as effectively as minoxidil restores the vertex.
  • Adenosine:  This nucleoside plays an important role for hair because it works in biochemical processes like energy transfer (adenosine triphosphate and adenosine diphosphate) and signal transduction (cyclic adenosine monophosphate).
  • Aminexil:  This patented molecule makes Spectral DNC-L clearly superior to other hair-growth products because, after minoxidil, Aminexil is the medication most clearly proven to grow hair. It preserves hair, protects roots, and strengthens fibers.
  • Retinol:  Incorporates retinol, a form of vitamin A, because it improves the absorption and effectiveness of minoxidil. Often prescribed together, researchers have found that coupling retinol with minoxidil yields better results than using either alone.
  • Vitamins and minerals:  Contains a rich vitamin and mineral complex, especially biotin and mineral salts, because these chemicals support the energy transfer and metabolic functions of hair follicles.
  • Herbal extracts:  The pure extracts of ivy and hops added to Spectral DNC-L stimulate the effectiveness of minoxidil, Aminexil, and other growth agents because the compounds are known to speed circulation and deliver nutrition to affected tissues.
  • Nanosome delivery:  Among numerous innovations, Spectral DNC-L delivers pure extracts through advanced nanosome encapsulation. With this proprietary technology, micro-spheres of organic liposome - 200 times smaller than a human skin cell - deposit active compounds deep within the scalp. While common creams and lotions just sit on the surface, tiny nanosomes fuse with affected tissues, dissolving gradually over 12 hours, targeting compounds for maximum performance.


Twice each day, dispense 4 pumps onto fingertips to cover the affected area completely. Massage it evenly onto the scalp, then wash hands with soap and water. Allow Spectral DNC-L to dry completely before styling. Treat consistently for three months, without missing applications, before evaluating results.

  • Has A Few Drawbacks! 4 Star Rating
    I have been using DS Laboratories products for almost a year now and every week my hair gets a little thicker. It is a slow process but considering how advanced my hair-loss was I am pleased with the results. Also, the fact that I have blond hair tends to mask my results somewhat. The biggest problem with the Spectral DNC-L is its smell. If you put it on at the beginning of the day and go out in public people may ask you if you urinated on yourself. It has a very musky noticeable smell! The only other drawback is price but hey if it works I guess Ill deal with it! The smell has prompted me to use Spectral DNC-L only before bedtime and I definitely feel it penetrating the scalp. During the daytime I use the original Spectral DNC and the Revita is my shampoo.
