One of the most common problems men encounter as they age is the occurrence of thinning hair or the hair beginning to recede from the forehead. This often begins more toward the sides of the head with the center holding out the longest. Fortunately, men today have the option to use Minoxidil for treating receding hairline.
This drug was initially invented to be an oral medication for hypertension. It was noticed, however, that users in the testing phase began to grow more hair all over their bodies. The strength of this drug was refined and it was put into a form more suitable for topical application in the exact areas where it is needed.
It works by stimulating blood flow to the affected areas, which brings more vital nutrients to the scalp and promotes the healthy growth of hair. It also blocks the formation of the male hormone, DHT, which has been associated with hair loss. DHT chokes off the follicles, allowing the hair to fall out but not be replaced.
One of the best Minoxidil product is Minoxidil-5% Extra Strength Hair Regrowth for Men, 3 Count, 2 Ounce Bottles. It has 3 count, 2 ounce bottles. It is enough for 3 months supply. When using it, you should apply it to the affected area twice a day. It has been shown to be highly effective in most cases, though there are a small percentage of men who do not respond. Most will see a slowing of the hair’s recession in two months. Many will begin to see new growth shortly thereafter. If there is no hair regrowth in 4 months, stop use; it means that it does not work for you. Read all information on package before use.
The one drawback to using Minoxidil is that once treatment has begun, you must continue to use it as a matter of routine for the rest of your life. If the use of this medication is discontinued, the original pattern of receding hairline and hair loss will begin again and may be more difficult to stop again with the same product. Another lack of this product is you will get your scalp itch slightly, but it is not a big deal as long as it can grow your hair back.
