Minoxidil belongs to a group of medicines known as vasodilators. It is not known how minoxidil causes hair growth. This medication is not useful in these 3 cases:
- Sudden patchy hair loss.
- Unexplained hair loss.
- Hair loss after giving birth.
Do not use minoxidil for hair growth if your age is less than 18 years old. Minoxidil is most helpful for people with hair loss over the years(less than 5years) who are under 40 years of age. However, when people stop using minoxidil, they start losing their new hair.
How Minoxidil for Hair Growth Works
Minoxidil is a hair loss and hair regrowth treatment. Like most hair loss treatments, minoxidil begins working immediately however, it takes 6months to start showing results. Our hair goes through several phases. Firstly, it enters into an anagen phase, in which the hair grows. After this, the hair goes into the catagen phase, in which the hair shrinks. Next is the telogen phases, in which the hair detaches from the follicle and is replaced by new hair. As per research, when minoxidil is applied, it is believed that minoxidil produces an early anagen phase. A common explanation is that it opens up the blood vessels in the scalp, which allows more oxygen, nutrients, and blood to reach the hair follicles. It may also enhance the ability of cells in the scalp to produce DNA.

Minoxidil causes hair follicles to go through the rest of the growth process prematurely before starting to grow again. This is one of the reasons, why some people experience hair loss when they start using minoxidil. As the hair follicles go through the hair growth process and enter into the anagen phase, old hairs fall out in large numbers. This appears like more hair is falling than normal.
How to use Minoxidil
Before using Minoxidil, read and follow all directions on the product. If you are uncertain about any of the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

The minoxidil lotion needs to be applied on dry hair. Clean and dry the scalp area before application. To use the solution, fill the applicator with 1 millilitre of minoxidil, or use 20 drops. Part your hair in the area of thinning and apply the solution evenly to the affected area of the scalp. Gently rub in. Or in case of using spray, use 4-5 puffs in and around the targeted region.
If scalp irritation is a problem, you may need to avoid using minoxidil on the same days that you have your hair coloured or chemically treated. Do not use on other parts of the body unless directed by your doctor. Do not use on skin that is red, painful, irritated, scraped, cut, or infected. Wash hands thoroughly after application. Avoid getting the medication in your eyes. If this occurs, rinse your eyes with large amounts of cool water. Do not use the minoxidil for hair growth more often. Apply once or as directed by the hair specialist. Minoxidil in Rogaine and Tugain may contain alcohol and can be irritating.
How long it takes for minoxidil to show results
Minoxidil can increase the density and thickness of hair. The anagen phase of the hair growth process can last from 3-5years, during which the hair grows to its full natural length before shedding. As research supports, minoxidil helps in starting afresh anagen phase. This usually takes several months before showing hair growth effects. Most studies indicate minoxidil for hair growths starts showing results after 6 months with few or no visible results in the first three months of use.
Minoxidil starts working and controls hair fall immediately. However, to improve hair growth, and produce noticeable results, it takes 3-6 months. After six months, there are visible changes, like hair thickness, new short hairs growing, and the final result is usually visible after approximately one year of continuous usage.
It takes time for hair to regrow. Most people need to use minoxidil regularly for 4-6 months to see the benefit. Minoxidil must be used continuously to maintain hair growth. If your condition does not improve or worsens after using it for 4 to 6 months, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, visit nearby dermatologists.
