Minoxidil was first used in tablet form as a medicine to treat high blood pressure (an antihypertensive). It was noticed that patients being treated with minoxidil experienced excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis) as a side effect. Further research showed that applying a solution of minoxidil directly to the scalp could also stimulate hair growth. The amount of minoxidil absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream is usually too small to cause internal side effects.
Because a transplant leaves an unnatural hairline if your hair loss progresses. And I don’t know what would happen if you would somehow manage to grow your hair back (hypothetically, using future treatments). Don’t know about DHI.
Now, if you have been using the product for at least a month already and you see no results still, then you can stop using it before it actually damages your hair. This is because there is a possibility that your hair product will cause damage because the ingredients found in them are not what you exactly need.

ABOUT MINOXIDIL TOPICAL AEROSOL, 5% (FOAM). Compare to Men’s Rogaine® active ingredient. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (Foam) is a hair regrowth treatment for men. The active ingredient is minoxidil 5%. This unscented, easy-to-use foam topical treatment revitalizes hair follicles and is clinically proven to help regrow hair. This product is not for use by women. It is not intended for frontal baldness or receding hairline. Minoxidil Topical Aerosol, 5% (Foam) is for men who have a general thinning of hair on the top of the scalp (vertex only).
Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic, said that Rogaine works better on the top and crown (for reasons not fully understood, the frontal hairline tends to be more resistant to treatment) and ideally should be started as soon as women notice thinning. “Any regrowth you get is a minimal amount,” Dr. Piliang said. “So the more density when you start, the better results you get.”
Propecia’s 1 mg dose of finasteride can effectively lower DHT levels in the scalp by as much as 60% when taken daily. It is DHT that shrinks or miniaturizes the hair follicle, which eventually leads to baldness. This 60% reduction in DHT has proven to stop the progression of hair loss in 86% of men taking the drug during clinical trials. 65% of trial participants had what was considered a substantial increase of hair growth.
Male pattern baldness begins above the temples and vertex of the scalp. Hairline recedes and men often end up with an “M” shape over their scalp. Women do not have a receding hairline, but they experience a gradual thinning of hair over their entire head.
The way it is supposed to work is to cause minor damage to your skin so it starts to heal and ‘regenerate,’ as it wouldn’t do so otherwise. It should also increase collagen and help better absorb nutrients in the area.
Hops flowers are widely recognized for their ability to stimulate hair growth as well as to strengthen existing hair and reduce breakage. Hops flower oil is also a natural anti-septic which can help to prevent hair loss caused by microbial infection of the hair follicles.
There’s no cure for male-pattern baldness, but some medications can slow it down. Minoxidil is an FDA-approved, over-the-counter treatment you apply to your scalp. It slows the rate of loss and helps some guys grow new hair. But once you stop using it, hair loss returns.
Rebecca, this might come a bit too late, but anyhow.. I have had bleached white hair for 3 years. Originally as a brunette, i had to bleach at the salon. Your hair care needs to start in the shower. Always use a sulfate free shampoo, it is gentler, doesn’t dry. Always follow up with a deep conditioning mask and follow by conditioner. When you are done YOU NEVER towel dry. You gently wrap your hair in the towel as if it were the most precious jewel and then take the towel off, massage in a soy based oil like the one from Sexy Hair, wrap hair in towel tightly and give it at least 15 min to suck the water out of the hair. Gently unwrap the towel, then use a cream protector from GhD or Sexy hair for extra moisture and to combat frizz. Use low temperature and speed on the dryer and dry from above, not in every direction. I prefer to use an air brush, it keeps frizz off. Make sure whatever you use is ionic technology. When you are done, rub 3 drops of soy or argan oil between your fingers and softly run them through your hair, focusing on the tips and the wild hairs at the top of your head. Buy only professional products. They are SO much better than supermarket cheap stuff.
Is there a reason the FDA asked the manufacturers to remove azelaic acid from their products. If it’s beneficial which from what I’ve read I think it will be I was thinking of adding it to the minoxidil but I don’t want to do it if there is a risk to my health.
Hi While the Hair Regrowth Treatments is FDA approved for genetically driven hair loss many doctors are recommending it for other types of hair thinning due to its ability to stimulate growth. If you decide to use it it will take 2-3 months to start seeing results.

Anagen Effluvium: This kind of hair loss is very similar to telogen effluvium, except that it generally results in the loss of all hair, not just patches here or there. Anagen effluvium is most commonly suffered by those who are receiving relief for various forms of cancer, including chemotherapy and certain kinds of drug cocktails designed to kill cancer cells. Another reason for this kind of hair loss would be the ingestion of a toxic substance.
There are many different types of hair removal: shaving, plucking, waxing, depilation, laser hair removal, oral medications, and electrolysis.
