I’m 24 years old male and have hair loss both at the front of my head and the crown. I’m starting to use rogaine foam in combination with propecia. I’ve heard that using minoxidil in higher concentrations (10%) makes you see better results faster. Is this true?
Perhaps it’s possible that high concentrations of minoxidil will bring about faster results (I’m not sure), but nothing occurs overnight in this business as the timeline often goes into months. In other words, don’t expect a miracle. I don’t recall seeing any studies comparing the speed of regrowth for the 10% vs 5%.
Higher concentrations of minoxidil will produce more side effects, so read the instructions carefully.
