Variable: if you have familial alopecia with no hair follicle ( global alopecia )- doubtful. If you do have hair follicle on the crown area,, you may be to grow "peach fuzz:" hair-but probably not enough to cover the crown with regular hair. Additionally, if you stop minoxidil, the "new hair " will either break or fall out.
