Stopping Hair Loss
Guides & Articles
Minoxidil is one of the easiest and most affordable treatments for androgenic alopecia. Originally developed as a blood pressure medication in the mid-20th century, scientists discovered that it came with a peculiar side effect: hair growth! Today, it remains the only topical FDA-approved treatment for pattern hair loss.
Using minoxidil is easy — you just need to apply it onto your scalp twice a day. That being said, there are a few things you should know if you’re new to using this product. Making sure that you’re applying the solution onto a clean scalp, not getting your hair wet for a few hours after, and letting the minoxidil dry before going to bed are all key to getting the best results.
Biotin is a very popular nutrient in the hair care industry. Deficiencies in this vitamin can cause hair thinning and hair loss. However, only people with inadequate amounts of this vitamin in their bodies are likely to benefit from these supplements, since excess amounts of this water-soluble nutrient are excreted by the body.
