Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

I bought it and my edges have miraculously grown overnight, it seems.
Reviewers rave about how well it works
- Byrdie
Minoxidil has been used as a treatment for hair loss for over 20 years, so by now we have some pretty good data about how well it actually works, and the results are actually pretty good. Many people see a 5-10% increase in hair density after 3 months use at twice daily.

What reviewers didn't like

two weeks of application "closed up the big bald spot I was getting in the center of the crown of my head."
Has to be used twice daily. Takes a little while to dry
- Byrdie
once stopped, most of the hair that had been saved by using minoxidil tends to fall out quickly, leading to what's called the "dread shed" - a rapid hair shedding phase.
