Minoxidil has been used and researched for several decades. It is safe to use on the scalp and is scientifically proven to work for 6.5-8.5/10 men.
Several factors will determine efficacy:
- The sooner you start the quicker and more effective the results: Try and catch androgenic alopecia early and stop it in its tracks
- Be consistent: Minoxidil has a half-life of 6 hours use it twice a day and every day for best results, if you miss a day you do not need to make up for the lost application but limit missed days
- Avoid gaps in the use of Minoxidil: Try and use the medication daily, think of it like you would toothpaste, and brush your teeth. If you stop using the medication you will find yourself losing your hair gains in a matter of months!
