I am a female who has been using minoxidil for 1 month. I have a lot of minituarized hairs and I’d like to know how Minoxidil would work on these short hairs. Will Minoxidil work by pushing out these minituarized hairs and allowing new and stronger hairs to come out? OR Will Minoxidil allow these short hairs to remain and stimulate them to grow stronger and thicker?
Minoxidil doesn’t replace existing hairs but it produces new hairs when it works that grow out of the scalp. New hair growth is a known side effect of this drug which was originally produced for high blood pressure. There are also suggestions that it may reverse miniatutrization of existing hairs.
