Minoxidil 5% for hair regrowth
Minoxidil is a hair loss and hair regrowth treatment that’s widely used to treat male pattern hair loss. Like most hair loss treatments, minoxidil begins working immediately but can take several months to produce noticeable results.
Unlike drugs such as finasteride, which prevents hair loss by blocking DHT, minoxidil works by creating an ideal growth environment for your existing hair follicles.
Minoxidil applied topically, is widely used for the treatment of hair loss. It is effective in helping promote hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia regardless of sex. About 40% of men experience hair regrowth after 3–6 months.
How Minoxidil works
Hair goes through several phases as it grows. At first, it enters into an anagen phase. This is the period in which the hair grows. After this, it goes into the catagen and telogen phases, in which it shrinks and detaches from the follicle and is replaced by new hair.
Finally, each hair enters into the exogen phase, during which it falls out from your scalp and is replaced by new hair.
Minoxidil is thought to induce an early anagen phase when it’s applied to your scalp, meaning it can cause hair follicles to go through the rest of the growth process prematurely before starting to grow again.
This is why some people experience hair shedding when they first start using minoxidil. As hair follicles go through the growth process and enter into the anagen phase, old hairs can fall out in large numbers, making it seem as if you’re losing more hair than normal.
