Minoxidil: Minoxidil is a blood pressure medicine that was found to have the side effect of increasing hair growth on the forehead. When it was tested topically it also led to modest hair regrowth. It does not cause premature aging. However if someone has been using it for a long while and then stops using it, the hair will gradually fall out to where it would have been if it had never been used.
