Is Minoxidil Good For Hair Growth?

While Minoxidil has formally been a medication most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, there have been many recent studies conducted into the question: is Minoxidil good for hair growth?

This is because increased hair growth was a side effect seen after using Minoxidil, and led to its development into a topical treatment to be used for androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern baldness). Great news for those of us who want to tackle hair loss!

AGA (androgenetic alopecia) is commonly experienced all over the world. It’s characterised by a hereditary pattern that begins at puberty where scalp hair thins progressively – with the miniaturisation of the hair follicle itself. 

According to the NICE (National Institute of Health and Care Excellence), male-pattern baldness affects 30% of men under 30 and 80% of men over 70; while female-pattern baldness impacts 29-38% of women over 70 but only 3% of women under 30.

But because hair loss can affect everyone, no matter who you are, here at The Dense Hair Club we launched a hair loss treatment that’s not only good for hair growth but that works for both men and women. 

In this article, we will explore how Minoxidil works and the clinically proven results, and why our products are one of the best treatments out there, no strings attached or wool over your eyes:

How does Minoxidil work?

There has been lots of debate however into whether Minoxidil is good for hair growth. And it’s clear that the hair loss industry can all too often offer ‘miracle’ products to its eager customers, who are understandably willing to put their faith in the holy grail – a cure for hair loss – considering the $1.5 billion industry worldwide. 

But, Minoxidil has been proven to help stop and even reverse hereditary hair loss. When in a topical form, it works by increasing the growth cycle of your hair follicles, which directly stimulates hair growth by providing the hair follicles with a longer window in which to grow. This helps stop the miniaturisation of hair follicles, and thickens your hair!

Clinical studies have shown that using a topical treatment of Minoxidil 5% or Minoxidil 2% maintained and increased the baseline hair count in users by 30% and over. 

Minoxidil is also one of the only hair loss medications that has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and EMA (European Medicines Agency), the other being Finasteride. Both of which can be found in our Hair Maintenance Kits for Men

But how exactly does Minoxidil work?:

Also, a study into the effects of Minoxidil on cases of androgenetic alopecia in women showed that there was a significant improvement in hair growth after using a topical form in either 5% or 2% strengths. 
While scientists are hesitant to definitively say that Minoxidil is good for hair growth, the are many studies that say it is!

How long does Minoxidil take to work?

For best results, it’s best to use Minoxidil for a minimum of four months to give your scalp the best chance to start repairing and regrowing hair follicles. 

Although, for the optimal long-lasting results, we recommended that the use of Minoxidil is maintained, not only to give you the optimal conditions for your hair to continually grow and thicken but to remove any hair loss anxiety from your life!

Is Minoxidil suitable for everyone?

In a word, yes! The topical form of Minoxidil has very few side effects, which is limited to scalp irritation in only around 5% of people. If you are taking prescription medication, however, it’s important that these do not react with active ingredients in hair loss treatments.

What are the benefits of using Minoxidil?

But why did we include both Minoxidil and Finasteride in our Hair Maintenance Kits for Men

Well, because clinical studies have shown that while using a topical Minoxidil treatment had positive results, there was a dramatic improvement in male-pattern baldness when using both 3% Minoxidil and 0.1% Finasteride

So we gave you a topical treatment that has 5% Minoxidil and 0.1% Finasteride, to really get to the ‘root’ of the problem, and give you the best chance to reinvigorate your hair. Finasteride works to block the conversion of testosterone into DHT, the main chemical responsible for hair loss in men.

For this exact reason though, we don’t include Finasteride in our Hair Maintenance Kits for Women, because it’s a hormone suppressant. But, we are one of the only organisations to provide a hair loss treatment for women that contains 5% Minoxidil! 

But still, there’s the question: is Minoxidil good for hair growth? 

It seems that so many positive clinical studies can’t be ignored! 
So why not see what The Dense Hair Club can do you for you and your hair loss journey?
