In brief: Minoxidil

Minoxidil is an antihypertensive vasodilator medication which also slows or stops hair loss and promotes hair regrowth.
Now off-patent, it is available over-the-counter for the treatment of androgenic alopecia. Minoxidil must be used indefinitely for continued support of existing hair follicles and the maintenance of any experienced hair regrowth.
