Minoxidil: Confused about it.

Filed in: Hair Care.

The most commonly recommended medicine for Hair loss


Minoxidil was the first medication approved by the FDA for hair loss.


Minoxidil only works when applied correctly to the scalp, it does not work on the hair per se.

1. You can work in the area with miniaturized hair (where the area is not completely bald).

2. It will work on the front of the scalp and temples if that area has just started to thin out, so it is very important to apply in these areas if you have already started to lose weight.

3.Minoxidil can be applied to the wet scalp, leaving the shower, which facilitates cleaning.

4. For minoxidil to be effective, it must be used continuously and regularly. Do not stop it and start doing it. You may experience spillage in the first 3 to 6 months of use. This usually indicates that the medicine is working, so do not stop the medication if you experience this. Consult your dermatologist in case of doubt.

5. Few, rare side effects of minoxidil are scalp irritation, lightheadedness / dizziness, increased facial hair (in case of drip on the forehead and application on the scalp). If you experience any of these side effects, stop and consult your dermatologist.
