How long does it take to see Minoxidil results?

If you’ve done even a bit of research into hair loss solutions, you’ve probably caught wind of minoxidil. As one of the main four products in our groundbreaking treatment plans, minoxidil plays a pivotal role in getting your hair back to its best. Minoxidil results can be successful if used on a consistent basis alongside other supplements, but, like most things, it doesn’t happen overnight. 

How does it work?

Minoxidil isn’t just any old treatment. The drug has been used for decades to treat male pattern balding and leads to some remarkable results. Minoxidil comes in the form of a light, shampoo solution that should be used daily on your scalp to actively increase blood flow. In contrast to drugs like finasteride (which block DHT), minoxidil creates a healthy environment for your hair follicles to flourish. Therefore, the drug gives your hair follicles the boost they need to regenerate.

How do I use minoxidil?

Applying the solution couldn’t be easier - all you have to do is use 1ml of minoxidil on the areas of your scalp where you can see signs of thinning. Make sure your scalp is dry and apply the solution twice a day, alongside your other supplements, to see amazing minoxidil results. 

As minoxidil induces an early anagen phase of hair growth, it’s not uncommon for men to notice old hairs falling out more than normal at the beginning. There’s nothing to fret about though - this prolonging of the anagen phase will ultimately lead to longer hair length and thickness.

How long before I see minoxidil results?

While minoxidil gets to work on your head almost immediately, the drug normally takes several months to show any signs of growth.  Most men start to notice small changes after just 3-6 months of consistent use. One clinical study found that, after 4 months of use, a quarter of men said that their regrowth was ‘moderate to dense’. Bear in mind that this is still at the very beginning of the minoxidil treatment period. 

At this point, the science behind yearly minoxidil use has been categoric for decades. A study from 2003, which had over 10,000 participants, stated that after a single year of minoxidil use, 92% of men said their hair felt either fair, good or excellent. While a year might seem like a long time, don’t let that put you off. It’s possible that positive minoxidil results can arrive even earlier.

If you want to give yourself the best chance of seeing those life-changing results, other products in our treatment plan are a must. Finasteride, biotin and DHT-blocking shampoo should all be used alongside minoxidil to get your hair on the right path and looking lush as soon as possible.

While minoxidil gets to work from the get-go, it will take around 6 months before you notice any signs of regrowth. With consistency, commitment and a little patience, those men who stick by a minoxidil routine won’t regret it. Take a look through our various treatment plans and discover the incredible benefits of minoxidil. At the end of the day - the sooner you get started, the sooner you’ll see the results.
