Minoxidil is widely known in the hair loss industry for its many hair growth testimonials.
In fact, it is one of the only FDA approved solutions on the market right now. That means that it is scientifically proven to be effective in increasing hair growth and/or regrowth.
The way it works is that it extends the anagen phase (growth cycle) in the hair cycle, allowing more hair to grow before entering the telogen (resting) and catagen (shedding) phase.
Minoxidil does not stop DHT. It stimulates more blood circulation to the scalp leading to more nutrients to the hair follicles and more hair growth. This molecule is the active ingredient in many topical solutions. Therefore, it works by being applying on the scalp either as a liquid form or as a foam.
Many users have noticed incredible results. Although, depending on the hair loss cause, it is not guaranteed to work for everybody. Nonetheless, many people have been very satisfied with the product.
Check out just some examples of hair growth using a Minoxidil solution:
Unfortunately, there can be some side effects to Minoxidil such as fast or irregular heartbeat, slight weight gain, chest pain, shortness of breath, red and itchy skin, bloating and headaches.
However, these side effects don’t happen to many people at all. Those who go through them usually already have sensitivity to the substance. DO NOT use Minoxidil if you have high blood pressure. If you experience any of these side effects, consult a doctor right away and cease its usage.
There are multiple versions of solutions with different quantities of Minoxidil inside. Initially, use a low concentrated solution and gradually upgrade as time goes by.
You should begin with the Minoxidil 2% Solution. It is possible to start directly with the Minoxidil 5% Solution, but using the 2% Solution can assure that your skin is not sensitive to it.
