Is minoxidil effective for hair loss ?

Minoxidil: If hair growth is going to occur with the use of minoxidil, it usually occurs after the medicine has been used for several months and lasts only as long as the medicine continues to be used. Hair loss will begin again within a few months after Minoxidil treatment is stopped.

Both: Rogaine (minoxidil) increases the effectively blood flow to the hair follicle. The increased blood flow can stabilize further hair loss and also allows some dormant follicles to resume growth. Rogaine (minoxidil) works best to regrow hair on the vertex of the scalp.

Yes: Yes, Minoxidil was the first fda-approved drug for hair loss. It helps to grow hair especially in those who are starting to lose their hair and want to prevent further hair loss. Those who have lost their hair for a long time may not see much improvement.

Generally both: It takes a while so be patient but generally it slows hair loss and promotes new growth as well.
