My Hair Knots Up and Pulls Out When Applying Minoxidil

Hello Doctor

I’m a 27yo male with a full head of hair yet. I comb my hair a couple of times a day after my minoxidil application with a wide tooth comb. As I have medium length hair sometimes knots are formed and even if I’m gentle sometimes I feel little painful pulls.

Should I be worried about those? I doubt any hairs are being pulled out by the root because I try to be gentle, but if some hair does, will it grow back?

Thank you very much.

If you’re being gentle, I don’t know what to tell you. You could try switching to the foam instead of the liquid solution and see if it helps.
