Question: Will minoxidil work for everyone?


Question: Will minoxidil work for everyone?


Minoxidil works by helping the blood flow to the hair follicles. As a result, increasing follicular size and hair shaft diameter. Stimulating and prolonging the hair growth cycle. Minoxidil was discovered during clinical trials for high blood pressure treatment. During trials, minoxidil showed signs of being able to regrow hair.

Minoxidil treatment does not work on everybody with thinning hair due to inherited pattern hair loss. Also, it is less effective for hair loss at the hairline than on the top of the head. It is less effective on long-established baldness than recent hair loss. It won’t lower a receding hairline. It’s most effective if you’re under age 40. Also, have only recently started to lose hair. That said, once those hairs are lost, it takes a long time to grow them back, so getting hair loss treatment early is the best strategy.

This is the only over-the-counter medication for hair loss approved by the FDA. It is approved for use by both men and women. Minoxidil can start a fresh anagen phase for some of the hair follicles. This usually takes several months before noticable effects on hair growth. Most studies indicate that the results from minoxidil usually start to show after six months, with few or no visible results in the first three months of use.
