WHAT IS MINOXIDIL
Minoxidil was initially created to treat patients suffering from high blood pressure. Upon discovering a side effect of significant hair growth, the formula was adapted into a topical solution to be applied directly to the scalp of men and women struggling with varying degrees of balding, notably androgenic alopecia. Although the mechanism of its efficacy is still not certain, clinical testing proved the treatment highly effective amongst the majority of the test subjects within just months, specifically on the crown (vertex) area*.
Two resounding results were apparent:
1. The rate of hair loss was reduced, and in some cases, halted.
2. Deadened follicles were re-invigorated, resulting in new growth.
