What is minoxidil?
Minoxidil is an orally administered vasodilator with hair growth
stimulatory and antihypertensive effects. Minoxidil is converted
into its active metabolite minoxidil sulphate by sulphotransferase
enzymes. Minoxidil sulphate exerts its antihypertensive effect by
opening of plasma membrane adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-sensitive
potassium channels (KATP channels), thereby directly and rapidly
relaxing arteriolar smooth muscle and subsequent reduction of
elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressure by decreasing
peripheral vascular resistance. This agent's hair growth
stimulatory effect may be mediated through its vasodilatory
activity, thereby increasing cutaneous blood flow, or due to its
direct stimulatory effect on hair follicle cells and forcing them
from their resting phase into their active growth phase.
How Does Minoxidil Work?
To the date it hasn’t been known for sure what is the actual
mechanism of action behind the effectiveness of minoxidil.
The only things proven are that it’s a potassium channel opener
which can stimulate blood circulation in the hair follicles and
thus naturally bring more hormones and nutrients into the root of
the hair to make it grow faster and thicker.
What makes minoxidil different from many other hair-loss products
is that it’s not hormonal. Whereas finasteride and other
DHT-blocking hair loss medications can actually reduce beard growth
by blocking dihydrotestosterone (the master hormone behind facial -
but not scalp - hair growth), minoxidil works topically by
stimulating circulation and has no effects on hormones such as
testosterone or DHT…
…Which is good because those two hormones are responsible of beard
growth in the first place, and lowering them would result in weaker
beard growth (which is why if you’re losing scalp-hair you might
not want to take any DHT-blockers).
How do you use Minoxidil?
Minoxidil comes as a lotion, liquid or foam, normally in a strength
of 2% or 5%. The higher concentration is usually only recommended
for use by men and is labelled by Regaine as Extra Strength for
Men. To have any positive effect upon hair loss, Minoxidil must be
applied at least once a day, every day for as long as treatment is
The method of application will differ depending on whether you are
using lotion or foam, but the basic technique is to apply a small
amount (usually 1ml) very carefully to areas of the scalp affected
by balding and to massage it into the skin. If you are using liquid
Minoxidil, it is likely that you will be provided with an
applicator to make the process easier and more accurate.
It is important not to apply Minoxidil to irritated or sore skin
and to avoid getting it in your eyes. Minoxidil can also lead to
unwanted hair growth if it comes in to contact with other areas of
