Of course washing off the Minoxidil every day soon after applying you will not benefit from it even if you are only a washing with water. ...Read more

Some cases of premature alopecia are genetic. ...Read more

Telogen effluvium.: That description sounds like telogen effluvium. In this, hair follicles in specific locations get stunned, if you will, by some sort of stressor - physical (such as a fracture), emotional, mental, nutritional, surgical. The follicles seem to eject their hairs in these areas, creating nearly circular bald patches. Takes a really long time, but the hairs do eventually return. ...Read more
