Does Minoxidil (Rogaine) Help Hair Loss?

Minoxidil (Rogaine) Help Hair Loss

One of the first things people do when they discover they suffer from male or female pattern baldness is to search for any moderately successful remedy. The most common solution they will often stumble across is Minoxidil drops and/or foam, which is said to help hair thinning in men and women. Minoxidil is also known as Rogaine. While you may see some positive reactions with Minoxidil, often the side effects and expense far outweigh the results.

How do you use Minoxidil and how does it work?

Minoxidil usually comes in drops or foams that must be applied daily (sometimes multiple times a day). It increases the span of the growing phase for hair, so you ultimately gain more hair than you lose. 62 percent of patients find Minoxidil effective.

What’s the risk while I’m taking Minoxidil?

Minoxidil is proven to be somewhat effective, but there are a significant number of recorded side effects. Some women recorded that while they began to grow more hair on their scalp, they also experienced unwanted facial hair growth that continued all throughout treatment. In addition, the most common side effect recorded was significant hair loss at the beginning of use. Though this side effect tends to fade, if you miss a single dose of Minoxidil, you could experience hair loss as if you are taking it for the first time. Some people also experienced some major scalp irritation, such as flaking and redness.

People, however, had more concerns than just side effects. Minoxidil requires a daily application to maintain results. The upkeep can be difficult, especially for a person who is constantly on-the-go. Consumers also report that Minoxidil can be very expensive, making Minoxidil a life-long commitment that can have a significant impact on your wallet.

What’s the verdict?

While Minoxidil is effective for hair loss, it comes with too many side effects, can be a hassle to maintain, and is too costly for the duration it must be used. Luckily, there are other more permanent and affordable solutions out there – like the scalp micropigmentation process at Hairline Ink. We offer Scalp Micropigmentation in over 50 US cities.
