Minoxidil Rogaine Beard
It May: Rogaine (minoxidil) is approved for application on the scalp to grow hair as an over the counter product. Trying it in other areas may work, but more likely you would benefit from a medical evaluation and other therapies (some people do hair transplant to missing beard hair areas!). ...Read more
Hard to say: We know it works well for the scalp, but for other areas its not proven. However, rogaine (minoxidil) is no longer expensive, and if you have thin areas in your beard, or areas where your beard has lost hair, I would definitely try rogaine (minoxidil), twice daily for 6 months. ...Read more
Very very small empty areas in my beard. What is the solution for this. Will rogaine (minoxidil) help. Again its is small area but I would like it full looks bett?
Alopcecia: What you are describing is called alopecia. There are many causes for this, but small patchy areas of hair loss in the beard could be a sign of alopecia areata. This is an autoimmune disease and requires the help of dermatologist to treat. Still, as there are many causes for this type of hair loss, I would recommend you see a dermatologist to get the correct treatment for your condition. ...Read more
Maybe: It won't help you grow a thicker beard. About 5% of guys in the US can't grow much of a beard, and at age 25 it's time for you to accept what Mother Nature gave you. If somebody is giving you a hard time over your sparse growth, simply recognize mean-minded man-made superstition and be done with all that nonsense. Manage your acne with topical benzoyl peroxide & maybe your doctor's Rx. ...Read more
Unknown: As far as I know, the effects of rogaine (minoxidil) on facial hair have not been studied. However, rogaine (minoxidil) works in part by increasing blood flow to the hair follicle and could potentially help hair grow in any location. You must be very careful around the mouth, eyes and mucous membranes of the nose. Rogaine (minoxidil) is not formulated for use on the face. ...Read more
You can try: Hormone is testosterone. If you're a woman who wants to adopt the male body / role, there are programs in most developed nations that can help you. If you're a man who's genetically programmed to have a very thin beard despite normal testosterone (erections, body odor), you can try rogaine (minoxidil) for your face / chest (anecdotes of success), or simply note many women prefer a thin-bearded, smooth man. ...Read more
No: It does slow the process of male pattern baldness. Several percent of men can't grow a good beard. Many women seem to prefer a smooth man. You don't see Justin Bieber or Larry Bird complaining. If you're "culture" disparages a thin-bearded man, you have my sympathy. Hit the gym hard, build yourself up, and nobody will criticize any aspect of your genetics. ...Read more
I used minoxidil for my patchy beard for 1 m.and now it becomes thinner and more patchy. Should I stop using it? Or it's normal shedding? What to do?
Sir, I am 25 years old man. Can I use minoxidil tropical solution USP 2% for getting beard (for mustaches)? And can you suggest veg. Food for this?
Not sure: Minoxidil is effective in growing hair in the crown area of the head, will not work on the frontal area. It may work on face? If you haven't experienced hair growth on your face by now than chances are you have limited hair follicles. If you really want more hair on the face than consider a hair transplant. ...Read more
Some thoughts...: Billions of men and boys shave every day to get rid of any beard that might be starting. That means not having a beard is a great time-saver, and that beards are unnecessary for humans. The medical question is whether or not a guy has other male characteristics (which would be evidence that his hormone levels are normal)... and a visit to one's primary care doctor can address those issues. ...Read more

Rogaine (minoxidil): Rogaine (minoxidil) is intended to prevent hair loss on the scalp, so I can't conceive of why you would want to use the topical preparation on your face. If rogaine (minoxidil) was successful in stopping hair loss or growing hair that had been lost, once stopped hair that has regrown will fall out and hair loss will resume. ...Read more

Might as well:
While this is possible from the pillow, the amount rubbed in is also enough to give effects All over even wtihout direct contact. However, it does NOT cause hair to grow where there is not already the potential for hair growth... increased beard and mustache sure... hairy eyeballs, no, not possible. ...Read more
