While advertised as a hair regrowth solution, Minoxidil’s primary result is the overall appearance of hair thickening rather than new growth. It merely ‘fertilizes’ the scalp and may help maintain the hairs already on it, as long as you keep using it.
Some of the common side effects:
Hair loss when starting / rapid hair-shedding when stopped
Irritation and redness of the scalp
Rapid heart rate, dizziness, fainting, swollen hands and feet
